Wedding shoes are the icing on the cake when it comes to your wedding day look, and we couldn’t be more excited to be sharing the best online shops to snag your perfect pair. They say the shoes make the outfit, and we know the power of a good shoe to elevate your entire wedding day look.
We’ve done the work of scoping out the best shops to buy wedding shoes, so you don’t have to. And we’re kind of freaking out about the shoes that have made the list. We’re obsessed, to say the least.
But first, let’s lay a few shoe shopping ground rules.
Green Wedding Shoe’s product selections are curated by the editorial team. If you buy something through our links, we may earn an affiliate commission, at no cost to you. If you would like to support GWS, please consider shopping through our links!
How Do I Choose My Wedding Shoes?
Your Dress and Your Wedding Shoes Should Be Best Friends
Perhaps you’ve been advised to get your wedding dress before you get your shoes, but we say it’s not a hard and fast rule. Especially if you’re a shoe person to your core. However, your shoes and dress should “hold hands,” so to speak.
You want them to work together in a few ways. First, the length of the dress and the height of the shoe are complementing variables. Your tailor will want you in your wedding shoes for fittings.
Second, see if there is a fun detail on the dress that the shoe could highlight — or vice versa! Third, consider how the colors match, don’t match or complement each other.
Still need the perfect dress? Check out our guide to finding the best wedding dresses online.
Consider Shoes With a Pop of Color
Speaking for all of us here at Green (ahem) Wedding Shoes: don’t be afraid of color! Once upon a time, it was super outside-the-box to rock a pair of green heels down the aisle.
Green Wedding Shoes now represents everything that’s uniquely you about weddings. And when it comes to wedding shoes specifically, an unexpected pop of color on your toes is a form of expression we will ALWAYS support!
Consider Your Venue When Choosing Your Wedding Shoes
That cobblestone aisle might be real cute, but it certainly wasn’t made for stilettos. Your wedding shoes should make maneuvering around your venue easy, so consider things like grass, sand, and rocks when deciding on a shoe.
When Buying Wedding Shoes Online, Always Read the Reviews!
Online reviews can be a real game changer when buying wedding shoes online. Not only do some reviews include pics of the shoes in use, but reviewers can provide you with crucial info about shoe comfort, if they’re true to size, and if they look like the photos in real life.
It’s safe to say, reviews can be a life-saver, especially if you’re splurging on your wedding shoes. Nobody wants an unpleasant surprise on the big day, so shoe reviews allow you to make an online purchase with confidence.
Look Into Ordering a Backup Pair of Wedding Shoes
Can you think of anything more fun than multiple shoe deliveries on your doorstep? That’s the life. If you’re unsure of how a shoe might fit or feel, check out the shop’s return policy so you can try a few sizes or styles.
Green Wedding Shoes Pro Tip: Sometimes a bigger size in heels ends up being more comfortable, as your feet swell throughout the day (especially in hotter climates!).
Always, Always, Always Wear the Wedding Shoe That YOU Love
We know; it’s a simple truth. But it’s also one that is sometimes muddled in wedding planning. Let us be the ones to remind you: you do not have to wear a “traditional” wedding heel or shoe. Rep your own personal style on your wedding day, whether that’s wearing a black wedding dress or rocking a statement heel.
And let’s talk comfort! Comfort is VERY important, considering you’ll be on your feet for most of the wedding day. However, we always encourage you to prioritize what’s most important to you! If you need those pumps with the angel wings on the heel (oh yes—scroll down), first break them in, then consider a second pair that’s made for dancing as the night moves on.
Now, let’s go wedding shoe shopping!
