    24 Comfortable Wedding Shoes You'll Appreciate From The Moment You Hit The Dance Floor

    Whether you're a guest, in the wedding party, or the bride, get ready to make like the Barbies and dance the night away in these kicks.

    Unless otherwise specified, all sizes in this post are listed in women’s.

    1. Bold and fun ankle strap heels so you can ~buckle~ up for a night of shaking your booty on the dance floor.

    Promising review: "They fit perfectly, and the chunky heel makes them so comfortable. I wore them to a wedding and danced all night without any problems! Also pairs great with jeans and a cute shirt!" —Shetoria

    Get them from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in sizes 5–11 and 10 styles). 

    2. BuzzFeed-editor-approved block heel Mary Jane mules that are just so cute, you won't wanna take 'em off your feet even when everyone else is switching over to the host-provided flip flops.

    Ma’am Shoes

    They're from an LA-based,  woman-owned small biz that makes shoes with a focus on style and sustainability. 

    BuzzFeed Shopping editor Danielle Healy LOVES these shoes: "Sometimes it feels like my feet are made of paper with how easily they blister. So when a brand markets itself as having a focus on stylish comfort, I am all ears. Fresh out of the box, I wore these red beauties out to dinner (a 20-minute walk each way), and my feet were no worse for wear. So I decided to put them through the ultimate test — a wedding. Even after hours of dancing, my feet felt great and I got loads of compliments. A statement shoe that really does look and feel great? *Big swoon.*"

    Get them from Ma’am Shoes for $150+ (originally $300; available in sizes 4.5–11 and five styles).

    3. Super affordable bedazzled ballet flats because who said shoes need heels to be formal? You'll be so much happier than everyone else who opted for stilettos. If Sophie Ellis-Bextor is to be believed, and it is, in fact, murder on the dance floor, at least we know it won't be your shoes murdering your feet.

    Promising review: "I purchased these for my son's wedding and wore them for almost 10 hours, straight out of the box! I had no rubs, and they were so comfortable. From walking up and down the aisle to photos to dinner and dancing, I felt amazing! So comfortable! They even came with a bag of replacement stones just in case. I adore these flats. The gold glitter was gorgeous. 😍 I highly recommend these! I have fairly wide feet and they fit me comfortably. They are relatively flat for arch support, but I didn't feel I needed it. There is definitely room for an insert if you needed one. The toe box was roomy and comfortable." —Tara W.

    Get them from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes 5–12 and four colors). 

    4. Dolce Vita's iconic Paily sandals, which you've probably seen all over the feeds and feet of fellow stylish folks. They're fan faves for a reason — these mules combine style with practical, sturdy heels and straps.
