Wedding Shoes You’ll Want to Wear Again

Glitter and sparkles aren’t my thing and I’m generally a mess in high heels, so one of the most annoying wedding related tasks has been finding a proper wedding shoe. Everything’s just so ugly (in my very honest and probably overly-strong opinion) and I don’t want to spend money on something I won’t wear again that I’m not crazy about in the first place.

That said, this feels like the time to have some fun and splurge on a shoe I wouldn’t normally buy – but I need to love the shoe enough that I’ll want to wear it after the wedding. Here are the best non-wedding shoes I’ve found so far.

I’d love for you to weigh in or share any suggestions you have since I’m getting married next month!

    I think splurging on a shoe that you can wear again is a fantastic idea — and every time you slip them on you will think of your wedding day.

  • I am tall, so I knew wearing heels was unlikely for my wedding. I too didn’t want anything too “bride-y” so I bought a pair of navy blue satin Chanel ballet flats as my wedding shoe. I wear them all the time and I’ve been married for 5 years! And seeing them always makes me smile. No, they weren’t a traditional wedding shoe, but it was the right choice for me.

  • Anything in the ‘Nudist’ collection by Stuart Weitzman I find totally versatile and flattering! Not ultra pricey, either.

    These are all beautiful, so you probably can’t go wrong. But, as a fellow non-heels person, some of these seem scarily sky-high! If it was me (but it’s not! so you do you, lady!), I know I’d want something I would be comfortable in on that special day, which would also be the only guarantee I’d wear them again in the future. To that end, I love the Stuart Weitzman Nearly Nude sandal with the block heel or the Jimmy Choo slingback right below it (the Manolo one is lovely too). They are beautiful, classy, and elegant but also look like you could actually walk around, stand and chat, and dance away in. And versatile for the future! Best of luck making your decision!

  • I love these! The scalloped heels are my favorite! I would definitely make sure that you’ll be comfortable in them all day – being in pain from heels is NO fun! You’ll have to let us all know which ones you pick 🙂

  • Shoes of Prey https://www.shoesofprey.com/ let you design exactly the shoe you want and deliver to you within 2 weeks ! I found them to be excellent quality and could get a wide, mid heel in exactly the right shade of nude. What’s not to love!

    Go all out and buy a pair of louboutins or something else you wouldn’t normally buy yourself in nude. You’ll get so much wear out of them and have great memories every time you slip them on!

  • I love the Nearlynude Sandal, they seem like something you would wear often! So simple and classic plus they will be easier to walk/stand/dance in. I do also love the ankle tie sandal!

  • Jillian Colleen

    I love the ankle tie sandals! but i cant walk in heels so I got a pair of red kitten heels for the ceremony, and gold sandals for the reception!
