Fact: Way too many brides fall victim to clunky-heeled, dyed-to-match, I-just-couldn’t-find-the-right-ones-so-I-panicked wedding shoes. Consider this an intervention.
When in doubt, turn to Roy G. Biv. Buoyant cobalt kitten heels ($102) from Marais USA are a perfect happy bridal hue.
Peonies or roses? Updo or wavy? Sandals or booties? Have the best of both worlds in elegant Tate sandals ($495) by Eileen Shields for Zero + Maria Cornejo.
You’ve got the chutzpah to pull off Alexander Wang’s embossed snakeskin, open-toe ankle booties ($525). We envision them with a tailored suit or as the center of attention under a short shift.

J.Crew’s floral peep-toe pumps ($198) have a ’40s silhouette, feminine charm, and are comfortably low heeled. They pair perfectly with a vintage dress and colorful sash.
Flats: a good idea if you’re clumsy or walking down an uneven aisle. Candela’s shiny jazz shoes ($138) channel Sir Elton John and unleash the tiny dancer within.
