Wedding season is officially here, and we don’t know about you, but we’re running around like mad picking out our outfits for all the nuptials. Finding a cute dress is the easy part, but choosing a pair of wedding guest shoes is where you really must make a smart choice. If you don’t want to add too much height but still want to wear heels, a low block heel is right up your alley. If you really just want to be comfortable all night long and not have to kick off your stilettos, opt for a pair with extra padding.

From black tie weddings to backyard gatherings, there are plenty of shoe options to pair with your wedding look. Here, our 25 favorites.
