Finding your dream wedding shoes isn't an easy task.
No matter if you favour minimalist design, (see our classic 'Charlie Ivory' court shoe ivory heels,) or fairytale glamour (see our 'Lottie Blue' heels dripping with crystals), we have the ultimate guide to help you decide.
A peep-toe, a jewelled heel, or an elegant embellishment detail will add that extra finishing touch to your bridal shoes.
Next, think about details: lustrous satins, the glisten of crystal or the shimmer of a suede finish will further elevate that feeling of luxury. From twists on timeless classics to contemporary showstoppers, discover our edit of elegant bridal shoes below.
Match the shoes to your wedding dress
Matching the shoe with your wedding dress will ensure your outfit has cohesion. Classic brides will want to opt for classic shoes to match - closed-toe court shoes never go out of style.
An understatedly chic and timeless choice, a pair of closed-toe heels are the perfect pair of wedding shoes.
Our 'Luna Silver' white bridal shoes
feature a sterling silver and mother of pearl detailed heel, making them an even more special pair to walk down the aisle in.
Re-Wearability vs One-Time Wear
A mid-to-low-heeled style will still help you feel elevated and comfortable. It's also the smartest investment you can make for your wardrobe.
A shoe you can wear after the wedding will carry sentimental memories every time you wear it.
A low block shoe is the perfect foray into heels if you're usually height averse; stay low to the ground with a style that blends jewellery and design.
Our 'Martina Midi' champagne bridal shoes
rest on glimmering sleek low heels, adorned with hand-cut mother of pearl.
Ensure That It Makes You Feel Glamorous
Consider a glistening pair of crystal-embellished shoes to add some twinkle to your toes. A bejewelled pair of white classic pumps can add a subtle statement. If you aren't the type of bride who wants lots of sparkle in her dress, shoes can be the ultimate stylish way to add some glamour to your outfit.
Venue and Weather Considerations
A pair of closed-toe heels or bridal boots can be the perfect pair of winter wedding shoes.
If you’re worried about cold feet, we recommend choosing warmer shoes for your wedding day. If you’ve booked an outdoor venue, consider the weather and terrain - we recommend staying away from spindly stilettos if your wedding is in a rainy season.
Opt for a pair of white boots like our ‘June’ boots for a supremely comfortable and eye-catching look. Perfect to wear all because of their low heel, the pearl detailing will also add some extra twinkle to your toes.
Could blue wedding shoes be the right shoes for your wedding?
Don’t forget to include something blue in your big day.
If you wouldn’t usually wear white shoes, invest in a pair you will wear again.
Instead of white heels, try a true-blue pair, like our 'Celina' blue court shoes.
They're crafted from leather and silk, luxuriously adorned with sparkling crystals, then set on a small stiletto heel.

Decide on the fabric of your shoe
Classical brides might want to choose a silk-satin shoe to match the fabric of their dress. It’s a good idea to ensure your outfit has cohesion, and matching silk shoes to a silk or satin dress is one of the most luxurious ways to do this.
Not to mention, natural materials will help your feet breathe more - plastic and polyester shoes will not only not last, but they’ll also never be as kind to your feet.
Shoes made with other materials can also add contrast to your outfit. Silver shoes made with sumptuous mirror leather are both unconventional and elegant, and one of our favourite more contemporary shoe choices.
Make sure the shoe is comfortable
To make sure you don’t miss out on a second of the day, ( the average wedding day can last from 8-14 hours) we recommend looking for heels with a wearable shoe height, like a platform shoe.
A platform heel is one of the plushest ways to still have height and not feel foot fatigue too early on. Platform shoes will give you leg lengthening magic and support your feet at the same time, so they're an ideal choice for your big day.
Our bestselling platform ‘GiGi Ivory’ shoes are crafted in supple white shimmer suede, and include our signature mosaic mother of pearl heels
. They're platform perfection.
Show your personality with your bridal shoes
Modern and contemporary bridal ensembles are the most sought after styles for the in-crowd. Leave modest veils and long dresses behind and choose something a little more daring this year.
If you wouldn’t wear something simple normally, don’t feel any pressure to choose something simple for your wedding.
Add personality to your day by choosing ladies designer wedding shoes that stand out from the crowd. We recommend our ‘Glory’ silver metallic platform block heels. Made with genuine silver and pearl, they’ll help you sartorially stand out in all the best ways.
Consider Changing Footwear After the Ceremony
Truly trustworthy, a block heel is one of our most favourite styles to opt for.

ultimate luxurious shoes to say ‘I do’ in.
