When you’re getting married, your dress is probably the first thing you’ll pick out for your wedding day. It’s likely what you’ve been dreaming about the longest, right? But after you’ve landed on the perfect style, the next most important piece to lock in are your shoes.
Essential for all of your fittings, the heel height is crucial to nail down. Hemming your dress to the perfect length can really transform your look, so it’s important to make sure you have the shoes you’ll be wearing anytime you have a fitting. And the style is equally important—pumps work perfectly for a trip to city hall, but you’ll want a pair of flat sandals for a beach wedding.
Since wedding shoe shopping can be a challenge, we combed through our favorite designers to bring you the very best styles for brides to wear this summer. As always, we predict that heels and pumps will be popular styles—but this season, they’ll be finished in satin or embellished with bows and crystals. We also think heels will be big among the wedding trends this summer. They’re always a good choice for a beach wedding, but there are plenty of options for brides who want stylish but comfortable shoes to dance in all night long.
