Finding a pair of comfortable wedding shoes is tough, especially when you’re shopping online. While comfort is definitely a priority when shopping for bridal shoes, finding options that are also trendy takes some digging.

But trust us on this one—investing in the right pair of shoes for the big day is well worth the effort. A comfy heel or flat will ensure you can dance the night away without having to take them off, not to mention complete your look for all those ceremony and reception photos. A comfortable pair of wedding shoes comes down to a few things: arch support, height and heel shape. You know your feet best, so if you know you can't withstand pointed, close-toed heels, opt for a pair of heeled sandals instead. Have a high instep? Extra arch support will be your best friend. And if anything over an inch high makes you look like Bambi taking his first steps, then you’ll want to stick to a flat shoe or one with a lower heel. Pro tip: Break in your shoes a little before you walk down the aisle by wearing them around the house a few times and maybe even adding a shoe insert for extra cushion.

If you’ve looked everywhere and can’t find a shoe you love, keep scrolling, because we’ve found 18 stunning pairs that may just catch your eye.

The rhinestone fringe on these heels is very Great Gatsby, and we have to say, we're kind of obsessed. The heel is a medium height for comfort (2.75 inches) and the sandals are easy to slip on and off.

9. Sarah Flint Parker Sling

Most Supportive

If you have a more vintage or boho style, these sling back heels with a sweet trail of nappa flowers across the vamp are a great choice. The footbed has an extra six millimeters of padding for an ultra-comfy fit and the heel strap will keep your feet nice and secure. Adorable feature: the “something blue” leather lining on the soles.

10. Birdies The Swan

Best Slip Ons

These embellished slip ons have a gorgeous vegan velvet upper that pairs beautifully with the crystal mid strap, while the footbed has a nicely quilted padding for maximum comfort.

We honestly want to wear these every day.

11. Sarah Flint Wedding Perfect Pump

Best High Heels

A classic pearlescent white bridal pump is a great option for basically any wedding dress style. But it’s worth noting that with a heel of just over three inches, these may not be right for you if you’re not comfortable walking in pumps (although the center steel rod heel does provide extra stability). The footbed is made with anatomical arch support for your instep and the wider toe box provides more room for your piggies.

Buy It ($445)


12. Lulus Swayy Champagne Rhinestone Strap Heels

Best Value

These feminine satin baby heels will give some extra bling to your wedding look, thanks to a rhinestone-accented strap and vamp. The short, two-inch heel is great for walking and the enclosed toe box will keep your feet from slipping forward.

13. Jimmy Choo Baily Lace Flats

Most Unique

Ballet flats are all the rage in 2022 and these ones are a gorgeous bridal choice. What they lack in footbed support they make up for in breathability and stability. The flat heel will (hopefully) ensure you don't trip down the aisle and they'll be easy to keep on all night long with no sweating thanks to the sheer lace design.

14. Dream Pairs Ballet Flats

Best Amazon Choice

The rubber outsole of these ballet flats offers great flexibility for walking and dancing all night long, according to nearly 3,000 five-star ratings on Amazon. With a shiny rhinestone upper, these pretty shoes will up the glam factor on any outfit—be it your wedding dress or even a pair of Levi’s. Note: Reviewers say to order a half-size up as they run a smidge small.

$60; $43 at Amazon


15. Jewel Badgley Mischka Giona Sandal

Best Outdoor Choice

These low heels (2.25 inches) are a wonderful option for an outdoor wedding since you won't have to worry about heels spiking into the grass and you can avoid rolling your ankle thanks to the low and sturdy construction. We’re big fans of the Art Deco–style embossed plate at the front of the heel and the shimmer effect throughout.

Buy It ($99)


16. Loeffler Randal Camellia Heels

Best Rounded Heel

How cute is this rounded heel? The taffeta bow strap on the front gives these heels a flirty element to complete your wedding look. Happy customers note that the shoe runs small so you may want to order half a size up from your usual size.

Buy It ($395)


17. Alohas Cannes Beige

Most Minimalistic

These backless heels have a strap farther up on the foot to ensure you’re secure while you walk. We love the heel shape and how simple these are because, let’s face it, your dress is the star of the show.

Buy It ($150)


18. Lulus Bellea Sandals

Best Sandals

A pair of sandals can go a long way when it comes to wedding accessories (think: from getting ready in the morning to dancing the night away, and then tossed in your honeymoon bag for good measure). The pearl details on this pair make them go from casual to bridal and the slight heeled bottom will allow for extra support, making these more comfortable than a completely flat pair.
