Wedding Shoes & Bridal Footwear

Is the bride supposed to wear white shoes?
No, you don’t have to wear white shoes on your wedding day! While some brides opt for white bridal shoes, others tend to go with a nude or silver color. Of course, you can also spice it up a bit with some sparkles or embellishments or choose a pop of color like blue.
Things to consider when picking out your wedding shoes
There’s a wide variety of wedding shoes to pick from. To help you narrow down your search, consider these options when choosing your shoes:
- Comfort. Although the heels might be adorable, if they hurt to walk in within the first few minutes, chances are you’ll have blisters by the end of the night. Instead, opt for comfortable shoes that are easy to walk in and greet guests, as well as ones that hold up on the dance floor.
And there’s nothing wrong with changing between your ceremony and reception, either! So if you need more than one pair of shoes to keep you comfortable, rest assured that’s totally normal.
- Heel height. How tall do you want your shoes to be? Do you prefer flats, or would you rather wear high heels? Do you want to ditch heels altogether and opt for some beautiful bridal sneakers? No matter which style you go with, you’ll find variety at David’s Bridal.
- Matching the dress. Ideally, you should choose shoes that match your dress or overall theme. For instance, if you’re going for black tie, it wouldn’t make much sense to have heels in bright pink.
- Style. Do you prefer peep-toe heels, block heels, sandals, or wedges? Either way, make sure it matches your style, and importantly, that you feel comfortable and confident walking in them for many hours at a time.

Wedding shoes tips and FAQs
What are the most comfortable bridal shoes?
The most comfortable bridal shoes are unique to everyone! Whether a guest or the bride, long gone are the days of "beauty is pain". If your main goal is comfort on the wedding day, we recommend kitten heels, ballet flats, or block heels—these add glam height without sacrificing your feet!
What are good wedding shoes?
Good wedding shoes are pairs that enhance your look without sacrificing your fun. For brides, bridesmaids, and revelers wearing long dresses, look for shoes that work with (and without!) the length of your dress. For those wearing short and cocktail dresses, mostly anything goes, but always keep comfort in mind.
How tall should bridal shoes be?
Bridal shoes are typically three to four inches, but consider how comfortable you typically are in heels. Your wedding day is not a time to experiment with height if you’re not used to it—you’ll stand tall enough as it is!
How far in advance should you buy wedding shoes?
You should have your wedding shoes by the time of attending your first fitting. That way, our alterations artisans will know the perfect length to adjust your wedding dress to.
Can I wear nude heels with my wedding dress?
Nude heels pair perfectly with any wedding dress due to their versatility and simplicity. If you want your dress to be the focus, nude heels are a perfect choice.
Do Bride shoes have to be white?
Bridal shoes do not have to be white! Some brides’ “something blue” is a colorful pair, while others use shoes as an opportunity to add more shine to their look. David’s Bridal has every pair a bride can dream of, from traditional and non-traditional aisle style to reception ready sneakers.
What is the price range for wedding shoes?
At David’s Bridal, we have wedding shoes for as low as $18!
Are there specific wedding shoes I should avoid?
While there is no one perfect wedding shoe, there are a few shoes you should avoid wearing at your wedding.
Ideally, you should stay away from wedding shoes that distract from your dress, like bright colors or shoes with too many embellishments. This is especially relevant if your dress isn’t floor length. However, if you want your shoes to steal the show, be our guest!
Another practical element to avoid: Too-tall heels. Even if you’re an expert at walking in 4-inch heels, you don’t want to risk tripping on your wedding day. Try on a few different heel heights and walk around a bit to see which feels the best on your feet while making you feel tall.
Does David’s Bridal carry wide shoes?
Yes! Select David’s Bridal wedding shoe options are available in sizes 6W to 12W.
