You’re 100% going to look like an absolute princess on your wedding day (duh). But, just because Cinderella went out for a spin in heels doesn’t mean you have to do the same. You want to look and feel amazing, and that just won’t happen if you’re tripping over yourself down the aisle. We get it, some women just aren’t avid heel-wearers. Or, maybe you’ll be taller than your husband in photos if you wear them. Either way, it’s never been easier to find (or even DIY) chic sneakers to wear under your wedding dress, if that’s what makes you feel most comfortable. Whether you’re a fan of lace or high-tops, we’ve got your flat wedding shoe needs covered. Check out five of our favorites.


If white isn’t your thing, then consider saying “I do” to these shoes. The embellishment instantly takes this pair of sneakers from drab to wedding fab. Put your best foot forward in all your photos and flaunt that jewel on the front. Plus, you can actually wear them out and about, even after the wedding festivities. Score!

David’s Bridal:

The notorious one-stop wedding shop has any kind of wedding shoe you could ever dream of, including a blinged-out pair of metallic high-tops with a built-in heel. This heel-sneaker hybrid marries the comfort and style of a sneaker with the height of a heel (but with much less danger associated with it).

KEDS For Kate Spade New York:

Two well-known fashion powerhouses have come together to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Kate Spade New York. Thus, this blindingly beautiful shoe was born. Just because you decide to wear sneakers doesn’t mean they have to be boring. Normal white KEDS? Snooze! If you’re in the market for sneakers as glam as your dress, you’ve come to the right place. This pair even comes in cream if you want a closer match to your dress. Otherwise, we definitely support a little pop of color.

A closet classic, the Converse All Stars have been worn repeatedly by brides in various forms. Whether high-top or bright red, these kicks guarantee a safe walk down the aisle (no tripping for you, my friend!). And, whenever you wear them after the wedding, you’ll forever associate them with the big day. If you do wear white Converse, though, it might be in your best interest to buy a fresh new pair or give your current ones a thorough clean. Grungy, dirty sneaks might not mesh well with your pristine, white wedding dress. Buying a new pair also gives you the opportunity to decorate them specifically for your wedding, so you can use a Sharpie to write your wedding date or “I Do” in pretty cursive.

For the feminine (and philanthropic) bride, rock a pair of these eyelet TOMS slip-ons. The light, breathable material makes them the perfect summer wedding shoe. And, what’s better than buying a new pair of shoes? Buying a new pair of shoes that contributes to a good cause! Check out their website to see how other brides have rocked this pair of shoes for their weddings.
