A woman’s wedding dress is the real main event of the wedding ceremony.
As she makes this dramatic entrance and walks down the aisle, all eyes are on her. Whether a ball gown, A-line or mermaid style, the dress reflects the style of the bride.
However, there is no point in wearing a beautiful dress if you wiggle instead of sliding down the aisle due to the wrong choice of shoes.
So it is understandable that finding the perfect shoe can be just as stressful as finding your dream dress.
Fortunately, there is a wide variety of styles to choose from. Here is a breakdown of the different styles of bridal shoe to help you find the perfect pair for your dress.
This is one of the most traditional styles of wedding shoes. The classic silhouette is both a modern and timeless style. Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle opted for a classic white Givenchy satin heel with a closed toe on her wedding day.

Kitten heel pumps
If you’re not very comfortable on heels and your wedding venue is made of grass or stone but still want to wear something elegant, then a kitten heel is a comfortable wedding shoe option.

For the bride looking for a little more height, block heels are a great option. The style offers both comfort and chic bridal style. Whether you choose sandals or an open toe or closed toe shoe, they’re sturdy enough to get through even the trickiest gait.

You can never go wrong with a high-heeled wedding sandal. Subtle or embellished sandals are a fail-safe option. Traditional or avant-garde, they are perfect for the summer bride.

Do you need comfort and height? Platforms can be a fancy option. The platform silhouette not only ensures the desired height, but also ensures an even and stable stand.
