Let’s talk bridal sneakers! You know how we’re always saying that we love a bride who just goes for it, and isn’t afraid to be herself?! Well, these authentic brides demonstrate how much style can be tucked riiight under the train of a dress. We’re talkin’ about brides wearing rad sneakers on their wedding day!

Can brides wear sneakers?

Of course! It’s your day and you do YOU! We are big believers in that. If you want to wear sneakers, wear sneakers. You want to wear boots, wear boots. You want to wear heels, wear heels. Wear what makes you comfortable.

Are sneakers appropriate for wedding?

As we mentioned, it’s YOUR day. If you want to wear sneakers, go for it! We were sneakers everywhere, so why not your wedding?! I would have some fun and wear a bit more elevated pair, but as you’ll see below, even your favorite pair of Vans or Nikes TOTALLY work for a wedding! Have fun!

If you’re a hypebae, a sneakerhead or just love to rock kicks, these wedding day looks will defiantly peak your interest. From Keds to the classic Chuck Taylors + every sneaker in between, there’s no tip-toeing around this cool wedding day style trend.

Let’s start with some fashionable brides and then we have a bunch of sneakers you can shop that would be perfect for your wedding!
