Hangisi Jewel Pump: Manolo Blahnik

Enduring bridal footwear fave Manolo Blahnik hits all the right notes with the Hangisi, featuring a classic silhouette, pretty pointed toe and sparkling buckle detail, which peeps out perfectly from beneath just about any wedding dress style.

Karolina Embellished Evening Shoe: Badgley Mischka

Soaring at 4-3/4 inches high, Badgley-Mischka’s Karolina is our hands-down favorite platform peep-toe right now. Why? Because it looks as good approaching as it does sashaying away (thanks to that gorgeous jeweled heel detail!), and because the sturdy covered platform lends support where we need it most. Happy shoe shopping, loves!

Selina-Sophia Webster1 Selina: Sophia Webster

Yes this knockout ivory sandal from Sophia Webster features a stunning embroidered swirl detail. And yes, it also boasts beaded embellishment and a stacked-bead heel we love. But our favorite thing about the whimsical Selina? Oh…that’d be the  and “Wifey for Lifey” message embedded on the soles of each perfect pair. Now that, love, is a bridal shoe!

Shoe Game: Comfort & Style

When dressing for your special day, your bridal look is not complete without the perfect pair of shoes. Sure, those sky-high Louboutins might be a stunning match with your gorgeous gown, but let’s face it, wearing towering heels for more than two hours straight can be tough on your toes, not to mention your heels, hips and back. Imagine spending more than six hours in them. For your wedding day, you likely will spend at least that much time on your feet, so it would be wise to choose shoes you can survive the day in. Don’t worry though, you do not, we repeat, DO NOT have to sacrifice style over comfort. You can have both, with these hot designs from top brands, and spend the day walking on air.
