There’s a lot to consider when you’re searching for the perfect pair of bridal shoes. Not only will the right pair help dictate the tone of your day, but they can also, quite literally, determine your comfort levels and how you carry yourself down the aisle and throughout the full day of wedding festivities.
As well as general comfort and working with the rest of your wedding attire, it’s also worth considering if you’ll be walking on grass, whether you want your shoes to make a statement, if you’re comfortable in heels for hours, and if you plan on purchasing a second pair to swap into at some point.
