From comfy ballet flats to elegant sky high stilettos there are so many options to choose from. If you are not used to wearing very high heels, your wedding day is not the best opportunity to experiment. You want to feel comfortable walking down the aisle but you want to look glamorous!

Ballet Flats

A pair of pretty ballet flats is the most practical option, and even if you want to arrive to the ceremony in heels, you can jump into a pair of flats later. Imagine how easy it will be to dance in comfy shoes! Ballet flats will look beautiful with short princess-like wedding dress with a more full skirt, but you can also match them with a floor length gown.

You can either go for gorgeous satin shoes embellished with ribbons, glittery stones or floral decorations, or buy an inexpensive pair of plain white pumps which will match a simple but elegant wedding dress.
