Choosing shoes for your big day may be way down your very long list of wedding to-dos but given they’ll carry you up the aisle, through your first dance and a night of festivities, you definitely want to spend some time considering what pair will be most comfy on the day – as well as which pair will compliment your wedding dress and overall colour theme best.
While white, cream, and silver shoes are traditional favourites, today’s brides can go with whatever colours they please.
So, since last year’s Pantone colour of the year was Emerald Green, we’ve hunted high and low for shoes that are so gorgeous, you’ll turn, well, green with envy!
1. Dacey by Badgley Mischka
If you love lace, this peep-toe heel will suit perfectly. Unlike other lace-themed shoes which are merely covered in lace, the creators have worked the lace into the shoe’s body, which features some beautiful cutwork.
2. Dolly Orchid platform pumps by Charlotte Olympia
What is not to love about these glittering platform pumps? At first glance, they may seem plain, but look closer and you’ll notice the upper shoe sits atop a golden platform.
It’s a classic with a twist and it’s all topped off with a pretty pink removable orchid.
3. Robert Cavalli jungle green satin heels
Shimmering and sensational, these basketweave t-bar sandals are understated but still a little glamorous!
The heel measures about 4.5 inches and features a back ankle strap to ensure your shoes stay on while you’re boogeying on the dancefloor.
Oh, and the sole is a lovely shade of gold.
4. Bejewelled sandals by Barbara Bui
Are these the perfect emerald sandals for your beach or garden wedding?
They’re suede and feature a leather/rubber sole, and are topped off with just enough bling to dazzle, so they’re most befitting for a beachside bride on her big day.
5. Volpi heels by Christian Louboutin
What is a post about fabulous shoes without at least one entry from Mr Christian Louboutin? This striking pair of silken heels is stylish and fashionable – and fabulously green.
6. Hangisi satin pumps by Manolo Blahnik
Looking like something straight out of a romantic fairytale, these Manolos will make you feel like a princess as you make your way up the aisle!
7. Napo by Oscar de la Renta
Another one for the lace lovers, these open-toe, 4-inch booties are oh-so-comfy. Elegant yet edgy, this pair is guaranteed to flatter your wedding day pins. 8. Ballet flats by Kelly Green Taylor
Heels are hardly your only choice for wedding shoes, so don’t feel obliged to hobble your way through your big day.
A pair of simple ballet flats will do the trick and will ensure you’re not uncomfortable all day! This unadorned, slimline pair features no bells or whistles on the outside, but it does include a handy massaging arch for extra comfort.
9. DIVA by Jimmy Choo
If you’re excited about dancing your wedding night away then this Italian-made shoe is, most certainly, the one you want to be caught – and photographed – boogeying away in!
The suede cage is covered in light-catching crystals and this pair features a padded footbed and leather outsole!
10. Caitlyn Bow peep toes
Ok, so we’re cheating a little here because these mint green Caitlyn Bow peeps aren’t exactly emerald, but they’re sooooo beautiful, we wanted to include them.
They’re the quintessential wedding shoe, pretty and sophisticated and just a little bit romantic.
