I'm a Shopping Editor, and These Are the 8 Shoes I'm Eyeing for My Wedding Day
I've been dreaming about my wedding day for a long time now — being in an eight-year relationship with a two-year engagement (we decided to dodge the micro-wedding trend) will do that to a girl. And while I've fantasized about everything from the floral arrangements to how my fiance will look at the opposite end of the aisle, the one thing I've been transfixed by recently is what my wedding shoes will look like.
I've always been a shoe lover, so much so that they're the one thing I know to expect from my fiance every Christmas (yes, I send him a link). I like them high, low, slung back, block-heeled, and more, and that includes everything from sneakers to slides to mules to boots. My collection is an average size, or so I tell myself, but I definitely don't already own something that feels special enough to wear to my wedding. Plus, who am I to turn down the opportunity to shop for a new pair of shoes (or two)?
OK, so, I am getting two pairs of shoes for the big day, to no one's surprise. I'll admit, however, that the heels I'm buying for our ceremony are a bit outlandish (they're going to run me just under $1,000). So, I set three rules for these wedding reception shoes: They have to be comfortable and stylish, and they can't totally break the bank. (Spoiler alert: the range here clocked in at between $17 and $322).
Naturally, my quest brought me to Amazon, where a search for ″bridal shoes'' gave me over 4,000 results. I've managed to narrow them down to eight options, including a pair of snake print block heels from Sam Edelman, bejeweled Badgley Mischka flats, sparkly sneakers from Keds x Kate Spade, and so many more.
Wish me luck.
