Elegant and Comfortable Wedding Shoes

Bride, bridesmaid, mother of the bride: no matter your role in the wedding, no matter your age, comfortable wedding and bridal shoes aren’t just a nice idea, they’re a requisite for truly enjoying your special day. No day in history has called on your feet to perform more…and look good doing it!  Sure, you can grin-and-bear-it in sky-high Manolos, but why not go for a more natural smile while wearing a pair of one of these foot-friendly yet beautiful bridal shoes.

Comfortable Wedding Shoes | Naturalizer Taimi

1. Naturalizer Taimi: This elegant strappy sandal comes in pure white leather and a few bedazzled options too. The Taimi features a 2 1/2″ heel and comes in extended sizes 4-12 and multiple widths, narrow to wide.   It might be the perfect pick if you’re having trouble finding bridal shoes that fit your uniquely-sized foot!

Comfortable Wedding Shoes | Hotter Donna

2. Hotter Donna: This vintage-inspired heel is back again for spring in pastel shades and off-white. Even if you “don’t do heels,” I bet you’ll love the Donna. Ample heel and forefoot cushioning, a rounded toe and stable 2 1/4″ heel deliver all-day comfort–available in wide widths too. Available from (shoes ship from England and should be delivered within two weeks).

Comfortable Wedding Shoes and Sandals | Pelle Moda Berlin

3. Clark’s Mayra Blossom: Did you know that Clark’s USA has a lovely collection of elegant, comfortable wedding shoes? I chose the Mayra Blossom peep-toe to feature, but you can choose among pumps, wedges and sandals of all heel heights. The Mayra blossom comes in nude nubuck with a delicate dot pattern and features an OrthoLite® footbed. The 3 3/4″ heel is high, but keep in mind there’s a 1/2″ platform. Available from

4. Pelle Moda Berlin: A favorite among Zappos and Nordstrom customers alike, the Pelle Moda Berlin scores five-stars for style and comfort. I noticed quite a few reviews from women with “problem feet” who found the Berlin a perfect fit–wider forefoot, narrower at the heel.   Available at Zappos,, Nordstrom, and Amazon.

5. David Tate Prom: Do you have a hard-to-fit foot? This slingback by David Tate comes in sizes 4-13 and four widths! The airy mesh makes it a good option for a warm weather wedding (and provides a more forgiving fit for bunions and hammertoes). Available at Zappos, Amazon and Nordstrom.

Comfortable Wedding Shoes and Sandals | Ecco Belleair Wedge

Ecco Belleair Wedge

6. Ecco Belleair Wedge: I didn’t find any feedback yet on this modern and sophisticated wedge by Ecco, but I wanted to feature it for its unique style as it stands out from the rest. Knowing Ecco to make a quality, well-fitting shoe, I think this 2 1/2″ wedge would be worth a try! Available from and Amazon.

Comfortable Wedding Shoes | Adrianna Papell Lois Lace

Adrianna Papell Lois Lace

7. Adrianna Papell Lois Lace: So much beauty in a two-inch heel. While I wouldn’t recommend the Lois Lace for bunions or hammertoes since the toe is a bit pointy, normal feet should do fine. Available at Zappos and Nordstrom.

Comfotable Wedding Shoes | Sam Edelman Loretta

8. Sam Edelman Loretta: For the trendy bride or bridesmaid, consider the Loretta by Sam Edelman. Both the block heel and ghillie laces are in vogue currently. Available from, and Amazon.

Comfortable Wedding Shoes | SAS Ava


9. SAS Ava: You wouldn’t know from looking at the outside of this shoe, but it has all the comfort technologies: a last that follows the shape of the foot, removable contoured footbed with arch support, extra cushioning for ball of foot and heel and extra depth in the toe box. Handcrafted in Tuscany, Italy. Available at

    I wore “Canopy” by Rose Petals for Walking Cradles in the pewter sparkle fabric for my daughter’s wedding. They were so pretty and while not quite as comfy as my favorite sneakers would have been I’ll say they were pretty great! I wore “Caliente” in black microfiber (also Walking Cradles) to the rehearsal dinner–both with slightly above the knee dresses. No one knew they were carefully chosen to work around high arches, wide feet, a bunion and crooked toes!
    Thank you for bringing new brands and styles of shoes to the attention of those of us with barking dogs!

    I have the Eccos in black. I wore them on a business trip recently – walking through airports, standing for long periods for presentations and a cocktail reception, and just generally wearing them for long days. Totally comfortable and will definitely pack them for the next trip. The low criss cross straps are flattering and less “comfort shoe” looking than most. Two thumbs up.

    Just wanted to share – I’ve been fervently lookup up all the shoes on your blog in an attempt to find some comfortable shoes for my wedding in the fall. I came across these from Nina – normally a brand I can’t wear, but these fit my wide feet and work for a bunion: . Another good option was the J Renee Soncino. Hope this helps someone!

    I bought Naot Onward to wear to my son’s wedding this summer. I took them on a trial run at a fundraising dinner-I think they’re gonna work!! I have the worst feet, so I’m thrilled to find something that is actually cute and I can walk in— pretty good arch support, stable heel, decent padding, a little touch of sparkle.

      Amy, those are really pretty! Thanks for the suggestion. You can’t beat Naot for comfort and the Onward is actually elegant!
