Having your wedding in the summer allows you to enjoy a beautiful outdoors setting that’s bound to make your big day a truly special affair. When it comes to your summer wedding dress of choice, it’s probably still lengthy enough to cover your footwear. Regardless, what you choose to adorn your feet with is still an important decision.
You don’t want to get stranded in sand or have your heels making craters in the grass, nor do you want to fall flat on the ground come dancing time. But unless you have an unhealthy obsession with trainers, you probably still want something that’s dressy enough for the occasion.
With this in mind, we’ve curated a list of seven stylish footwear options that are made for summer weddings.
Zerogrand Bow Flats
These simple yet stylish flats have enough class to impress your new mother in law while offering dance-all-night comfort. The leather upper is finished in a reflective silver tone with a color-matched bow, while the synthetic sole is textured for extra grip when you need it most.
Sam Edelman Laurna Mule
The mule is a timeless wardrobe staple, but few renditions are as classy and summer wedding-appropriate as these. The white woven upper is a safe look that’ll work with any dress, while the golden detailing provides a sense of sophistication to the silhouette. Finish it off with a leather insole and you’re set.
Rose Gold Flats
There’s something especially chic and classy about rose gold. Most fashion brands seem to know this by now, but their implementations tend to be hit or miss. Fortunately, these rose gold flats by Head Over Heels do the color justice by incorporating it onto a sparkling collection of embellishments found along the straps.
There’s also a silver option for those who want something a little more subdued. Either way, they’re affordable and super comfortable. To make your acquisition put an even smaller dent on your wedding budget, you can pay for shipping on your first order and get a year’s worth of free deliveries on future orders.
The gold metallic version of these sandals is about as classy as it gets. Add in the intricate upper design and you’ll look like a million dollars as you walk down the aisle. The small wooden heel provides a bit of extra spring in your step without impacting on comfort, while the leather lining further adds some cushioning.
Valentino Rockstud Sandals
If you plan on going all-out with your wedding footwear, who better to turn to than Valentino? This playful take on the gladiator sandal provides some hardcore classiness with the Italian designer’s iconic golden studs throughout the upper. A super soft, plush leather insole will keep your feet comfy and the light ivory color is sure to work with any dress.
Kate Spade Bridal Champion Trainers
Okay, fine – we’ll include a pair of trainers for those brides who say “why not?” These Kate Spade kicks are perhaps the most fitting option, as they’re literally made for weddings. Eye-catching crushed glitter can be found throughout the upper, and the extra protection will keep the sand from getting between your toes.
If you have an eye for bling and you want to feel like a princess on your summer wedding, these sandals are the perfect fit. As elegant as they are laid back, you can find a collection of different jewels along the straps, with a clean and simple leather sole to balance things out.
Perhaps this list has made your wedding footwear decision a little easier, though we suspect it might have made choosing just one option all the more difficult. But worry not, as you now have plenty of shoes to choose from for the honeymoon.
