Five Comfortable Wedding Shoe Ideas

The last thing you want on your wedding day is painful feet. There are so many comfortable wedding shoe options. There is no reason to wear painful shoes. Here are five great options to move and dance through your wedding day, pain free, in comfortable wedding shoes!

1. Sandals

Sandals are a great option for warmer weather, or a beach wedding. These sandals are a great bridal white with a touch of sparkle. They will hold your foot in place to avoid blisters, without getting into the pinching peep toe situation. The above sandals are the Olivia Miller- “Richey Multi Rhinestone Sandals” available at Macy’s and other retailers. These shoes are a great choice for their flat footed design that lets your feet do their thing.

2. Block Heels

If you have shaky ankles, a block heel is a great idea to give you a little lift in height without the lack of ankle support that comes with stilettos. These blush block heels are a cute option for a gentle pop of color. They also have great arch support. You can purchase them in store at Nora’s Shoes in Geneva, Illinois, or online.

3. Wedges

Who said wedges aren’t formal? These fancy shoes by Angela Nuran are made specifically with brides in mind. They are easily the most comfortable line of heels, flats, and wedges available in the bridal industry. Angela Nuran shoes are adjustable to be made wider or looser at the toe and ankle. You also can choose your brooch to coordinate with your wedding attire. You can purchase Angela Nuran shoes locally at Veiled In Elegance in Geneva, Illinois.

4. Flats

If you are not a heel or sandal person, you’re in luck! There are hundreds of flat shoe options that do not lack formality, color, or comfort. These beaded Bella Belle shoes have the combination of formality, beauty, and comfort that will make you happy all day. With the slightly pointed toe, no one would know you were not wearing heels! What’s not to love? Bella Belle shoes are available locally at The Crystal Bride in Geneva, IL.

5. Stilettos

We know, we know, we already showed you some Angela Nuran shoes, but we are not kidding when we say they are the most comfortable formal shoes on the market. These Astoria heels have arch support, a padded sole, as well as an adjustable broach at the toe. These details combine to give you a comfortable, stable heel to wear on your wedding day and beyond. They last forever, so dye them nude or black after the wedding to continue to enjoy these comfortable heels. Available locally at Veiled In Elegance in Geneva, Illinois. 

No matter what shoes you choose above, you are sure to have the most comfortable wedding shoes! Don’t forget, you don’t have to sacrifice beauty for comfort. For more wedding planning tips and tricks see more useful blog posts below!

Vendor Spotlight – Veiled In Elegance

“Vendor Spotlight:” Veiled In Elegance – a Q&A session with Owner Kathy Lager

What is the mission statement of Veiled in Elegance, and what type of clientele do you cater to?

Veiled In Elegance brings high quality bridal gowns and unique complimentary accessories to brides, to make them look and feel their most beautiful on their wedding day.  We do this in an intimate setting and with personal attention throughout the planning process.

How has the company evolved since its inception?

VIE began in 1995 as a bridal accessory shop offering custom veils and headpieces.  Jewelry, shoes, and flowergirls naturally followed.  When gowns and bridesmaid dresses were added,  I joined the company with my expertise as a custom bridal gown dressmaker.

What is your specific background with regard to dresses?  What dress experience does the rest of the staff add to the Veiled in Elegance experience?

I was a custom bridal gown dressmaker for 10 years, then began doing alterations for the brides at Veiled in Elegance, soon after I bought the business from the original owner.  All the girls assisting the brides, whether in choosing their gown, accessories, or with alterations, have studied fashion design.  They are professional and knowledgeable of each detail of the item they are working with.

How is Veiled in Elegance different from the next wedding dress shop?

We have an intimate setting and provide personal service.  Our headpieces, veils and jewelry are all custom made to compliment any gown.  When deciding what designers to carry in the shop, I look for high quality silk fabrics and lace, with great construction and fit.  I also search for designers who provide all this at an affordable price to brides.

What style of dresses and accessories do you specialize in?  Do you have a specific aesthetic that you aim for?

Our gowns have a simple, classic and elegant look that is timeless yet modern, and even, at times fashion forward.
The accessories are unique with special attention paid to each detail.

What does the future hold for Veiled in Elegance?

At Veiled In Elegance, we continue to seek original designs in gowns and accessories, offering details such as hand embroidering the bride’s new initials in her gown, or creating a bouquet for the wedding rehearsal out of ribbons saved from her bridal showers.  We even work with an eco-friendly dry cleaner to preserve the gowns after the wedding.
