Perfect Bridal Shoes For Any Budget from Stylist Kathryn Duncan

After you’ve chosen the location, the menu, sent the invitations, chosen your dress, bridesmaid dresses and finally your partner, what’s next on your wedding planning to do list? Yes that’s right, it’s time to focus on yourself and most importantly your wedding accessories! After your dress, your chosen bridal accessories can really compliment your wedding look and also your wedding theme. You can add so much of ‘you’ to your wedding outfit through your accessories, throwing tradition to one side. Today I’m going to talk about bridal wedding shoes. The next best thing after choosing your dress. These are the shoes that will walk you into the next stage of your life, the slippers of a lifetime!

On that note, I’m going to recommend the best wedding footwear to walk you down the aisle and into a lifetime of happiness from high street to designer for whatever your budget may be.


I love adding some extra colour to wedding outfit with some colourful shoes. These coral pink Topshop heels add a gorgeous pop of colour that’s almost good enough to eat. Also a complete steal at £49! The block heel also means you will be able to walk all day and dance all night in total comfort. Who wants to be in pain on their wedding day?

If colour isn’t your thing, these Topshop Satine square toe heels could be the perfect option. Being white in colour is the only traditional element to these shoes. The barely there see through strap is super modern and contemporary, perfect for the modern bride. Finish off the look with a white pedicure, or a contrasting colour tropical/ acid colour toes. Also available in lime green and coral for those who don’t see in black and white.

I can’t get over how adorable these modern Cinderella style Be Mine Bridal Honor glitter sandals are. For a latter day take on fairytale slippers, these ASOS heels will make you feel the belle of the ball! The low heel and ankle tie are great design features to keep you both comfortable and princess like.

Another great option from ‘Be Mine Bridal’ are these Lylie silver metallic diamanté strap barely there sandals. With a design far beyond their price point, these heels will suppress any fashion gal’s label hunger. Perfect for the sexy and sophisticated bride. These heels would also seriously compliment a non-traditional bridal pantsuit.

For those brides who are looking for a step up in bridal footwear (literally) from the high street but aren't ready to enter the designer brand market I’ve selected some mid-priced bridals heels for you.

These Carvela block heels have a luxurious feel without the high-end price tag. With just the right amount of embellishment these shoes will easily compliment any wedding dress.

Last but not least, for those brides who are celebrating with the crème de la crème of fashion, here are my high-end bridal shoe picks.

From my favourite designers no less, these Dolce & Gabbana crystal embellished lace pumps are the epitome of Italian glamour. They will take you down the aisle and beyond; they can be styled in so many ways.

From the King of shoe design, I’m obsessed with these Hangisi White Satin heels by Manolo Blahnik. Yes, they are the white version of the iconic Sex and the City Carrie/Big proposal Manolos. If they are good enough for Carrie to say yes to….

Now for the ultimate in bridal footwear from the design genius Jimmy Choo. I would completely understand if you only wanted to display these pearl encrusted beauties in a glass case rather than wear them!
