The prettiest flat wedding shoes for brides
On Instagram you might see a bride posing in her impossibly beautiful Jimmy Choo wedding shoes, but the reality is that the high heels will often be kicked off after the first dance (if they’ve even lasted that long) in favour of a pair of bridal flats.
It used to be the case that flat bridal shoes were a bit boring, and there wasn’t much in the way of choice for stylish brides that don’t feel comfortable in a pair of heels.
These days, though, there’s a staggering selection of wedding flats available. Plus, there’s not so much pressure on women to bow to convention (check out this bride who wore Dr Martens on her wedding day!).
Flat wedding shoes are no longer the humdrum second-rate option and can be just as beautiful as their towering, feet-pinching counterparts.
And they are way easier to dance in!
Whether you’re looking for bridal sandals or brogues, wedding trainers or the timeless ballet slipper, we’ve found the prettiest bridal flats for brides on all budgets.
