You probably have some kind of bridal gown and accessories budget in mind. And as “Say Yes to the Dress” has shown us time and time again, if you’re like most brides, you’re bound to go over it. After all, this is your once-in-a-lifetime wedding, and you need to dress the part!
Here’s the good news: You don’t have to blow a big chunk of your wedding-wear budget on bridal shoes. We’ve found plenty of gorgeous wedding-day pumps, slingbacks and sophisticated sandals that will look perfectly, well, perfect, peeping out form under your gown. And every single one of the pairs in this post costs $100 or less. Yes, yes, yes!
We’re loving Moda Spana’s satin “Fairy” pump with all-over rhinestone detailing for a contemporary touch of bridal sparkle—a steal on sale at Zappos for $67.50!
Special-occasion fave Nina’s satin ”Granite” sandal, available in Ivory, Gold and Silver, plus several other saucier shades, is such a pretty (and, at $89.95, affordable) choice for spring and summer brides.
Available in Diamond White and Ivory, the elegant ”Shine” from Allure Footwear, features a moderate platform, rhinestone center strap and sexy little ankle strap—and a very seductive $100 price tag.
Any gal with a serious shoe addiction is bound to be well acquainted with Piperlime. And any bride on the hunt for seriously fabulous wedding shoes that won’t break the bank should be, too. Our top picks? The $89 satin-upper, leather-lined, peep-toe Nina “Papina”; the $98 stacked-heel, peep-toe, totally stylish Calvin Klein “Cora”; and the $79 ruffle-detail “Galvey,” another knockout from Nina—one that looks particularly pretty in Ballet Pink, don’t you think?
