    I wore these shoes on my wedding day and it was one of the best decisions I made. I got married in a garden and didn't want to risk wearing heels that would get stuck in the grass — problem solved! I was able to dance the entire night without an ounce of pain. Highly recommend!

    3. Spectacular pumps that are so sparkly, they might even outshine your engagement ring.,

    Promising review: "I am absolutely in love with these shoes! I was nervous at first to order heels offline, because my feet and heels normally don't work together. But I normally wear a 7 1/2 and that is what I ordered in these heels. They fit perfectly and the color is beautiful! I was worried they would be pink, but they definitely are not. They are a true champagne gold color and they are gorgeous! Perfect shoe for my wedding!" —A. Goudreau

    Get them from Amazon for $73.27+ (available in sizes 6–11 and in two styles).

    walkinonair / Etsy

    Promising review: "Fit is perfect. They are simple and comfortable. As other reviewers mentioned, the bottom of the shoes are slippery so I need to scuff them up before the wedding." —Lisa McElhenny

    5. Bedazzled sandals you'll love for the way they sparkle in the sunlight., Amazon

    6. Low block heels with scallop straps to add a little ~somethin' somethin'~ to your already fabulous look.

    Promising review: "I love the look of ankle strap sandals, but was concerned that most had very high heels. Found these in black and they are perfect for my son's wedding. Many of the reviewers for similar shoes complained that the ankle strap was short, but the zipper on the back of the sandal is the perfect solution. The block heel makes them very comfortable, too! Just love them!!" —FIG

    Get them from Amazon for $32+ (available in sizes 5.5–11 and in seven colors).

    9. Lucite heels to create a look similar to Cinderella's without having to sacrifice comfort., Amazon

    Promising review: "Want endless legs? This is your shoe. The transparency creates the illusion and your legs are instantly four inches longer.

    Get them from Amazon for $24+ (available in sizes 5.5–11 and in four styles).

    10. Pumps that'll complete the vintage look you've been working so hard to curate for your wedding day.

    Promising review: "These were my wedding shoes. They went perfectly with my dress and my Frida Kahlo–themed wedding attire!!! They fit as expected and looked absolutely lovely. Be warned, there’s next to no cushion inside the shoe so by the end of the night my feet were aching. But I still cherish the shoes with all my heart!" —Yesenia Ortiz

    Get them from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in sizes 4.5–12 and in seven colors).

    11. Low heel sandals covered in sparkly rhinestones, guaranteed to make sure you outshine all of your guests' footwear.

    Promising review: "I highly recommend these shoes. I got married in these shoes — danced all night and ran around my resort in the Caribbean for hours on my wedding day — never bothered my feet once. They are very elegant and the heel height is perfect for being on your feet for hours. I recommend for a bride or bridesmaid. Received lots of compliments. Do not wear with a top-to-bottom sequin dress (it will snag). Any other fabric, you're fine." —Whit214

    Promising review: "I got these in blue for my wedding shoes and they were a big hit! Lots of compliments on them throughout the day and the photographers got some cool shots with them. BUT they need to be broken in! The toes pinched me a lot, so I needed to wear them around the house and do the blow dryer trick. So keep that in mind for timing. They aren’t super comfortable, but manageable for heels." —Elizabeth Crosby

    Get them from Amazon for $48.99+ (available in sizes 4–11 and in seven colors).

They are pretty, and have a nice amount of 'bling' — not too over-the-top! They fit perfectly. The heel is pretty high, so I was a little nervous, but they are really easy to walk in and super comfortable. I’d definitely choose these again!" —cm2277

    21. Classy heels with subtle blue bottoms to add an extra ounce of shimmer 'n' shine to your wedding day.

    Promising review: "I ordered these for my wedding and they looked great. I wanted something that looked 'bridal' but was also something that I COULD wear again (though I probably won't). I wore them all night (eight or so hours total) and they didn't start to rub around my toes until the very end — and I was dancing the whole time!" —Jessica Picardi

    Get them from Amazon for $44.99+ (available in sizes 5–11 and in six styles).

    22. Satin shoes you'll float down the aisle in because they're so darn comfortable.

    Promising review: "I bought these to go with the dress I wore for my wedding. They are very pretty and I received so many compliments! I normally have a difficult time with any type of heels, either with not being able to wear them for long before my feet start hurting or the shoes being to narrow for my wide feet. These were perfect. I was still comfortable in these shoes after hours of standing. I highly recommend to any bride looking for a beautiful, but comfortable shoe." —Tiffany

    Get them from Amazon for $39.95+ (available in sizes 5–12 and in six styles).

    Promising review: "We looked everywhere for beautiful red/burgundy dress shoes for my daughter’s wedding, but couldn’t find any she liked. I saw these on Amazon and she loves them!. A bit big, but better than being too small. It’s nice that they came with heel and foot pads to help custom fit the shoes. Classic sparkle, enough to catch the eye but not too flashy. Even Grandma loved them!" —Lori B.

    Get them from Amazon for $43.60+ (available in sizes 5–11 and in nine colors).

    24. Lace Mary Jane block heels to make sure you'll easily be able to perform that coordinated dance you and your S.O. have been planning for months.

    Promising review: "These shoes were everything I hoped they would be and some. I bought them for my something blue and was nervous they would be cheap looking in person, boy was I wrong. They are beautifully done, not a single snare nor imperfection. Not only did they come in a box with protective packaging but they came with gel inserts for the toes, a pad to protect my heel, and a spare heel bottom. They are worth every penny and I am so excited to get to wear them on my big day. The only downside is that they do not come in half sizes and they are just a tad bit tight. I will just have to make sure I wear them in before the wedding." —cheyenne
