49 Best Wedding Shoes to Wow in 2023
Stylish wedding shoes should be part of the equation when deciding on all the key looks making up your wedding wardrobe—from the bridal shower and rehearsal dinner to your walk down the aisle, after-party, and post-nuptial brunch. Of course, comfortable bridal footwear is a priority, but style is equally important; wearing a long gown is no excuse for shoes that don't feel special. Another reason not to wait to shoe shop? You'll need your chosen pair in time for your first wedding dress fitting to ensure an appropriate hem length.
Whether you're shopping for fanciful heels, lovely flats, beach wedding shoes, or something blue, all (if not most) of the bridal shoes you choose should be styles you'll wear again and again. Keep versatility and longevity in mind: Timeless pumps, strappy sandals, and metallic heels will go the distance for future events and outfits of all kinds. Below, find our 49 Best Wedding Shoes for every wedding-worthy shoe style, from the classics to the statement-makers.

Pearl wedding shoes
Pearl wedding shoe embellishments come off as elegant, timeless, and beautiful. They have a bit of a vintage flair, and they add a little something extra to your look! You can opt to get shoes that only feature subtle pearl details, like sandals with pearls all over the straps or a pair of pumps with one large pearl accent. You can also go in the opposite direction, like opting for clear vinyl shoes that feature pearls all over your foot. We've found a wide variety of options for pearl wedding shoes that will photograph beautifully and add something timeless to your wedding day outfit.
Blue wedding shoes
There's no better "something blue" than the perfect pair of wedding shoes! Not only do they give your wedding dress a playful pop of color, but you'll get mileage out of the heels post-wedding, too. Plus, you'll be crossing two items off your to-do list: finding a fashionable pair of wedding pumps and your something blue.
Rhinestone wedding shoes
No matter if you’re hosting a beach wedding, a casual ceremony, or a black-tie affair, there's a shimmering option fit for brides of all styles. Those looking to add major shine and sparkle to their look, opt for heels with all-over glitter and rhinestones like the Badgley Mischka Galia Embellished Sandal or the Jimmy Choo Romy Glitter Pumps. And if the thought of wearing heels at your wedding doesn’t excite you, remember that there are no rules when it comes to your big day.
Floral wedding shoes
Whether you're hosting an intimate glasshouse wedding, chic city ceremony, or a destination wedding, we've researched and rounded up the perfect pair of wedding shoes for every bridal style, venue, and budget. The bride who loves the 2023 floral trend will love these Loeffler Randall Penny floral heels...
Suppose you love the idea of a bridal bootie but feel like it doesn’t suit your wedding dress. No stress! Booties are an elegant option to pair with other bridal outfits, be it an engagement party, bridal shower, or rehearsal dinner look.
Flat wedding shoes
Let’s face it, flat wedding shoes are a more practical and stable option than teetering about in heels; you’ll probably feel less likely to trip as you sashay down the aisle. Plus you can spend as much time on your feet as you like without having to worry that they’ll ache (and without getting blisters).
Unique wedding shoes
If you’re looking for something that feels a little less classic and a little more statement-making, you're probably in the market for a pair of non-traditional or fashion-forward wedding shoes.
Of course, not everyone's definition of non-traditional is the same, which is why we've rounded up a wide range of wedding-worthy shoes to suit all bridal styles. For those looking to add a pop of color to their wedding-day outfit, sandals or pumps in bold hues are perfect for dialing up the drama. Searching for something undeniably statement-making? We've found scores of eye-catching styles like boudoir-inspired mules, and whimsical sandals that are bound to leave a lasting impression.
Block heel wedding shoes
The most up-and-coming wedding shoe trend for 2023, the block heel exudes comfort, style and elegance all in one, effortlessly taking you from aisle to dancefloor. Bridal block heel shoes are perfect for those who want added height and elegance, without compromising on comfort. If you're a fan of flat wedding shoes, there are plenty of low block wedding heels that also offer the same look with a subtle uplift.
