So we’ve been in second heaven checking out some fabulous bridal shoes for you lovely YR brides readers.
But before we get carried away let’s check out just which styles there are to choose from.
1. Peep toe 

This style is great for bridal as you get the support of a full shoe – nobody wants to doddery on their wedding day – but still have the elegance of a sandal.

Benjamin Adams designs some fabulous bridal shoes and this is one of my favourites.

And they’ve even told us 3 reasons why would should love it in this cool instagram post!


If you’re comfortable in high heels and feel like you can go the distance then there’s plenty to choose from.

Just bear in mind if you’ve ordered your dress to a set length your heel height is important.

Another option is stiletto platform style bridal shoes so again could give more stability but still have the wow factor.

I tried on some absolute sky scrapers in my bridal fitting when my dress came in at 10  inches longer than I needed! There’s no way I could walk further then the end of the bridal boutique, never mind an aisle!

3. Flats

The bridal industry has cottoned on to the fact that not every bride is comfortable in heels. So fortunately there’s a good selection on the High Street. Ballet pumps still dominate or you could go for a kitten heel to give a slight lift.

We love this Lolita Lace pretty flat style featuring lace-up tie detail with a soft almond toe shape by Harriet Wilde.
These shoes are made in Spain and crafted in ivory Chantilly lace from France with ivory leather.
With beautiful pale gold-tipped low heels, this style is an elegant and feminine alternative to wearing a high heel.
And you don’t have to head to London on shop online as Harriet Wilde is stocked at Bijoux Bride Holmfirth.

4. T-bar

If you’ve got a vintage vibe in your wedding dress then a classic T-bar shoe will complete your look.

Rachel Simpson’s t-bar strap of Mimi is not only comfortable and secure, but is super flattering and extremely elegant. This ivory satin peep toe is inspired by the 1920s and features a simple teardrop looping detail through the front of the shoe, in a soft metallic leather.

Wedges are still relatively new in terms of bridal shoes but are becoming more popular.

We love these Monsoon embellished wedge at £89.

They feature a glittering motif of crystal gems, embroidery and pearlised beads.

A classic shaped court shoe has stood the test of time when it comes to bridal shoes.

This ivory number from Ted Baker is bejewelled to perfection.

7. Trainers

If you live in trainers and can’t imagine going for anything else then there’s good news as loads of stockists are offering customised designs with everything from rhinestones to full-on initials and messages.

We love Charlotte Mills and what’s more she’s based in Saddleworth so it’s a trip across the Pennines to pop to her super swanky shop.

She has a full range of effortlessly beautiful bridal shoes.

These personalised ‘wedding sneaker’ called Dana cost £300 so they’ll last for your big day and beyond.


8. Wellies

If you have a festival feel to your nuptials or are keen to keep your feet dry then wedding wellies are now actually a trend.

Luxury brand Hunters are a safe option but we’ve found Lincolnshire based Evercreatures do a fab bridal wellie boot and they have stockists across the UK. You can even buy them on Amazon!
