At Vogue Ballroom, we are fortunate enough to come across a new pair of glistening wedding shoes every week, and if we're lucky we may come across three pairs a week! When it comes to a bride selecting her desired pair of shoes for the big day some choose comfort, whilst some may choose the look and of course the brand name of the shoes. A new trend that we've seen among brides has been that they use two pairs of wedding shoes for the day. One pair is used for the morning video and photo pre-shoot, then by the time they've reached the reception some brides slip into a more comfier shoe for the night.
Here is a selection of some truly beautiful, as well as comfortable shoes fit for any bride on her wedding day:
These shoes are truly remarkable, and of course - there is enough bling on these shoes to complete any bridal gown. Jimmy Choo is always a popular choice for a bride on her wedding day. They are more on the expensive side, but the quality and detail of the shoe is certainly worth it.

If you're throwing a seaside or garden wedding, make sure to choose shoes that are sand and grass-friendly like espadrilles, block heel sandals, or flats. For formal ballroom weddings, closed-toe pumps or embellished sandals always make for a timeless choice.
Is it appropriate for a bride to wear sneakers under her dress? If that's what makes you happy, go for it. Sneakers can be wedding-appropriate if you deem them to be and that doesn't mean just with jumpsuits and bridal pant sets.
We recommend wearing seamless underwear on your wedding day. They are usually more forgiving and don't hug your hips as much as ones with elastic waists and side seams. If your wedding gown is very fitted, you may want to wear a seamless thong to be extra sure that no one will catch a glimpse of your panty line.
High heels may be expected for brides, but they are not required! Once the dress is selected, it's time to decide on a veil or other hair accessories, jewellery, and finally, the wedding shoes. Read these tips for selecting heels or flats! Finally, brides will choose their wedding shoes.
