Your wedding shoes are a special pair that you’ll treasure forever. Even if your dress covers them up, you want to be confident knowing that you love whatever pair you choose. Just like your dress, this is a purchase where a tiny splurge is completely valid.
Comfort is KEY on your wedding day, so even if you get googly-eyed about a pair of stilettos, keep in mind that you’re going to wearing those bad boys for many hours (likely more than a full eight hour work day to be precise).
You’ll want to make sure that your tootsies can remain somewhat happy through pictures, the ceremony, and (at least part) of the reception.
Many brides grab a second, more comfortable pair of shoes for later in the night so that they can dance to their heart’s content without worrying about their feet. A simple pair of white flip flops is another great choice.
Best White & Ivory Bridal Shoes
1. Badgley Mischka Women’s Dana Dress Pump
Badgley Mischka is known for their gorgeous line of formal shoes, with many of them meant for bridal wear. These are one of the most classic pairs, with a very elegant and clean look and a gorgeous broach for some sparkle.
The satin shoe is designed with a beautiful peep toe and is comfortable to wear. The heel measures 3.5 inches, keeping the height modest and wearable for hours on end without discomfort.
2. Blue by Betsey Johnson Women’s Livie Dress Sandal
If you’re looking for a unique option that’s fashion forward with a lot of visual interest, this is a fun choice. The white shoe features a bootie style design, with a higher ankle for additional support.
The shoe itself has a laser cut design and gorgeous silver studded embellishments. The shoe is available in ivory leather, ivory satin, and black satin, so you can choose based on the rest of your look.
3. Kate Spade New York Women’s Izzie Dress Sandal
You really can’t go wrong with these Kate Spade heels. They’re classic, elegant, and the bow on the heel adds an adorable feminine touch that’s still sexy and chic. The shoes are a great shade of ivory, not too white and not too dark.
The approachable heel height and ankle strap also help to keep these comfortable and wearable for long periods of time. This alternative Kate Spade bridal shoe has the same elements of comfort, but has a bow over the toes rather than the heel. It also features a white glittery heel for a subtle pop of sparkle.
4. Vince Camuto Women’s Im-Olson Dress Pump
Sometimes glitter and sparkle can be tacky and overwhelming, but not if they’re done the right way. The heel height is on the taller side, but not unmanageable, especially given the support from the rest of the shoe.
The while leather is covered in tiny clear crystals for a look that resembles Cinderella’s glass slipper and that’s absolutely stunning.
5. Jessica Simpson Women’s Morena Dress Sandal
If brooches, crystals, and embellishments aren’t your style, there are other ways to make a simple heel feel special. This leather sandal is on the strappy side and would be a nice choice for a spring and summer wedding since it doesn’t offer much coverage.
The scalloped edges are a subtle design that keeps the shoe relatively simple but still special.
