If comfort is your number one priority when it comes to walking down the aisle (and kickin’ it on the dance floor), you’re probably not even considering those four-inch stilettos. Flats are a comfy alternative, but wedges are where it’s at if you still want a little extra height. Luckily, our Fashion Editor has hand-picked 15 of her favorites that are ALL under $150. You just can’t beat that price!
Many couples choose to have a patriotic wedding that coincides with 4th of July, but that doesn’t mean your color palette has to resemble Yankee Doodle Dandy or Uncle Sam. Instead, show your love for America with subtle pops of red, white or blue! Here’s our salute to bridal shoes:
Would you rather be comfortable as you walk down the aisle? If your primped and pampered toes can agree, choose these firecracker red ballet flats.

The upcoming Leo DiCaprio film must be inspiring designers, because a number of looks look like they could have been taken right out of The Great Gatsby. These Art Deco-inspired wedding gowns adorned figure-flattering gowns with delicate metallic beading and embroidery at the waist, neckline and back.
Take this Jenny Packham stunner (left) with a jewel-encrusted halter neckline and fan like beaded applique at the waist. The “pull” in the fabric creates soft lines to enhance an hourglass figure.
Probably one of the most eye-catching backs of the season is on this dress by Elizabeth Fillmore (center), who described her collection as 1930s inspired. The butterfly design featured here is so unexpected, quite elegant and truly enchanting. It also creates a portrait or keyhole shape, allowing brides to show off a sexy, toned back.
Editor’s Note: Are you a fan of butterflies? Check out the latest Aruna Seth bridal collection with crystal butterflies embellishing the toes. In addition to wedding-day shoes for the bride, bridesmaids and moms are sure to find a pair to wear with their dress. The designer offers 50 colors from pastels to brights in a variety of heel heights.
Using both metallic thread and beads, Reem Acra (right) adds panache to the sheer V-neckline of this gorgeous sophisticated gown. The pattern continues from the bodice onto the capped sleeves. To complete the Art Deco theme, the Acra accessorized with a pleated tulle veil that covered the sat on the top of the head and was held in place by a beaded band.

For some brides, finding the right pair of wedding shoes is tougher than selecting the dress! It’s important to be comfortable (you’ll be on your feet a lot) but you’ll want to make sure your shoes fit your style, as well. If you’re having a glamorous ballroom wedding, go all out and wear a pair of sparkly heels (like the gorgeous pair pictured above!). But if you’re getting married on the grass or sand, avoid heels that will sink into the ground – try flats or wedges instead. Check out these shoe-shopping tips, and tell us about your wedding shoes:
