Wedding shoes can be tricky. For me, I wanted shoes that were interesting and pretty but also comfortable. Also, I have a hard time justifying an expensive pair of shoes that will spend the day covered up by my long dress. For those debating wedding shoes themselves, here’s what I prioritized in my shoe hunt:
- Comfort — With a bad knee, this was especially important to me. I didn’t want anything with an outrageously high heel.
- Cost — I capped my spending at $100.
- Cuteness — Although my shoes wouldn’t be regularly visible under my long dress, guests will get a peak at them as I walk around. Also, it’s hard to resist those charming shoe shots that have become so popular lately.
- Post-wedding wearability — I didn’t want them to look so wedding-y that I’d never wear them for another occasion.
You’ll see in the photo gallery some of the shoes I encountered that seemed contenders for dancing the night away. Most of these have just a little bit of color, but there’s a few vibrant options as well. Many of them come in various colors. All are under $100 and some are as low at $20 — but don’t expect those items to stay in stock for long.
