5 Tips for Finding the Perfect Outdoor Wedding Shoes

Winter Wedding Flowers

Are you still in hunt for the perfect outdoor wedding shoes?  Whether you are the bride-to-be or the bridesmaid, having the right shoe for the walk down the aisle will be essential!

Types of Outdoor Weddings

  1. Wedding on the Lawn

Instead of wearing story high stilettoes that will inevitable swallow the stem of your heels as you walk across grass, opt for a stylish wedge that is adorned with delicate flowers or stones.  This option gives you height without having to sink into the ground as you make your way to the altar.


  1. Beachside Wedding

Flats and close-toed shoes will be out of the question for a beach wedding.  Sand will slowly build up between the sides of your feet which will make your stroll to the big event scratchy and uncomfortable!  Instead, try a pair of delicate embellished sandals that wrap around the back of your heel (to prevent sand from kicking up on your dress).  Sandals will not only look stunning with your beach themed wedding, but they will also be comfortable!


  1. Cobblestone or Gravel Walkway

Avoid having the ground shift under your heels as you walk across a gravel or cobblestone aisle by opting for a pair of jeweled flats that will protect your toes and keep you from getting your foot caught between spaced cobblestones.  Wearing flats across uneven ground will help stabilize your heel as you journey on to the next chapter of your life!

Be Prepared!

  1. Break Them In!

Regardless of which style of shoe you choose to wear to an outdoor wedding, make sure to take the time to break them in!  You want to be comfortable as you spend the day socializing, dancing, and celebrating.  Breaking your wedding day shoes in will secure more confidence and as well as comfort!

  1. Bring a Back-Up Pair

Be prepared just in case a strap breaks or a sole is tarnished… bring a back-up pair of shoes to ensure your feet are covered for the celebration!
