The hardest part of figuring out what to wear to a wedding? The shoes, always. Attempting to calculate the amount of time we’ll probably be on our feet, comparing that number to the max amount of time we can wear our fave heels without loosing feeling in our toes is math we just don’t have the patience for. Add to that the complication of dealing with potential snow and freezing cold in winter and we’re so over it. Luckily, the most obvious solution is also the easiest: Just wear flats. To help you and your feet make it through winter wedding season in style (and comfort), we found 23 pairs of flats that are fancy enough to join in the celebration.
