The journey to find your dream wedding dress (or suit) may be long and stressful, but it's a beautiful one—one that often ends with tears streaming down your face when you finally land on The One. The next step, then, after finally saying yes to the dress (or suit)? Scouting for the perfect wedding-day shoes.
Though we're certainly not against taking a more unconventional approach when picking footwear for your big day (Serena Williams made a strong case for wearing practical, comfortable shoes when she sported Nike sneakers for her reception), there's something so magical about slipping into a pair of opulent designer wedding shoes.
So if you've long fantasized about wearing a pair of red-soled Christian Louboutins, your wedding day might just be the perfect day to live out that dream. Want to walk down the aisle in heels fit for royalty? Opt for a pair by Aquazzura, a brand beloved by Meghan Markle. Ahead, shop all of our favorite designer wedding shoes.
