The 20 Best Spots to Buy Bridal Shoes Online + How to Easily Choose!

Red velvet heels to wear as bridal shoes

Do you love shoes? WE DO. This is great news for you because if you’re a shoe hoarder, you’re going to love what we have for you. And if you’re not…you’re going to love what we have for you!! Basically, we did the work and found the best places to buy your bridal shoes online — and they truly are the best.

They say the shoes make the outfit, after all, so just imagine how your bridal shoes can magically elevate your entire wedding day look! But first, let’s lay a few shoe shopping ground rules. {photo + shoes above: Forever Soles}

How do I choose my wedding shoes?

Your dress and your shoes should be 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 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.

(PS: Still need a dress? Check out this post — we did tons of research to find the best places to buy a wedding dress online!)

On the subject 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 shoes specifically, an unexpected pop of color on your toes is a form of expression we will ALWAYS support!

Consider your venue.

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.

Especially when it comes to buying bridal shoes online, read the reviews.

Do you ever just thank want to God for the people in the review section? Especially when you’re shopping for shoes online, knowing if they’re true to size and comfortable (or not!) is a life-saver.

And/or, order refundable backups.

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 then try a few sizes or styles. (Tip: Sometimes a bigger size in heels ends up being more comfortable as your feet swell throughout the day.)

Wear what YOU like.

We know, it’s a simple truth. But 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, whatever that means to you. And let’s talk comfort! Comfort is VERY important, considering you’ll be on your feet for roughly one thousand hours. However, prioritize what is 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 shopping!
