Cool Shoe Picks for Unconventional Brides

Sneakers? Booties? Ballerina flats? Well, why not?

Who says a bride has to wear crystal-encrusted stilettos or strappy heels down the aisle? If you're into that, no worries. Just click onto another one of our juicy blog posts. But if you're the kind of bride who wants to say her vows and dance the night away in some other kind of kicks, keep reading!

Here are some alternative shoe options for unconventional brides.


High top, low top, sparkly, and wrapped with a bow. There are plenty of laid back and comfy sneakers for a bride to choose from. Take the Fenty by Rihanna for example. It's sporty, but ties up with a bow, and the monochromatic white will fit in nicely with your bridal look.

Chuck Taylor more your style? There's a sneaker for that too. You could go with a classic red Chuck or go for a disco ball affect with the Converse All Star Metallic design. Shine bright, darling!

Boots & Booties

Booties can come in handy, especially during winter weddings. They can be anything from fur-lined and crochet to knee-high lace up and rhinestone rain boots. I love the pair that Anna wore for her homespun wedding.

For country gals, a pair of cowboy boots can be even more comfortable than sneakers!

Ballet Flats

When you really think about it, why would anyone want to stand around in heels all day? Let's forget the fact that they're gorgeous, k? Talk about painful. Unless you find the perfect pair, you might be up for blisters, tired heels, and crushed toes. Take a cue from the ballerinas of the world and slip on a comfortable, but beautiful pair of flats. You could even have one pair for the ceremony and one for the reception. Bonus: you'll probably wear them again and again!

Flip Flops

Our collection wouldn't be complete without something for the beach-bound brides. But let's face it, flip flops can be worn everywhere. Although a more casual pick, these shoes are the ultimate in comfort and can be styled up for a wedding day look. Consider a sparkling pair or a honeymoon ready pair that you can slip on between the ceremony and reception.
