TBH, not all wedding shoes are created equal, some are really uncomfortable, which is super inconvenient considering it's your wedding day, after all. In comes our saving grace: block heel wedding shoes. Bridal block heels are thicker, which gives you more stability, comfort and style. Who could ask for anything more on their wedding day? Plus, chunky wedding heels are uber popular at the moment, so you can find them in a wide range of colors and fabrics with all sorts of bridal embellishments.

I, of course, had to tap the queen of block wedding heels, Charlotte Mills, who's been designing her own line of bridal footwear for nearly ten years, to learn more about this popular style. "Block heel bridal shoes are such a must for brides," says Mills. "They allow brides to be more comfortable than they would feel in a silletto heel; you have more surface area to stand on, and for a day that you're on your feet for the most part, you really want to be as comfortable as possible."

Below, we've rounded up a great selection of wedding shoes just for you that you can add to cart right now. (You can thank me later.)

Best Brands for Bridal Block Heels

Still undecided? I get it. There are so many gorgeous bridal block heels out there. Here are a few of my favorite brands to check out:

Charlotte Mills

Spoiler alert: I'm a huge fan of Charlotte Mills for so many reasons, but mostly because they value craftsmanship and their brides. "It's so important to us that brides feel comfortable and secure in their Charlotte Mills shoes," says Mills.

That's not the only thing to love about the brand's bridal block heels, be sure to check out the bottoms for the sweetest detail. "Each pair of our shoes also comes with our signature embossed sole with the rhyme, "Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue, and a Silver Sixpence In Her Shoe" on the sole, complete with your something blue and a lucky sixpence penny in every left shoe for good luck on your wedding day!"

Loeffer Randall

If you've seen a wedding on Instagram in the past year, you've likely seen a pair of Loeffer Randall block wedding heels. Each shoe style is absolutely très chic and they always photograph beautifully. And they don't stop at just shoes. They have an entire bridal collection with coordinating handbags, clutches and headbands to help you complete the look. They also have responsible initiatives, from ethically sourced materials to partnering with initiatives that support small workshop artisans. They are a brand you can truly get behind.

Bella Belle Shoes

Bella Belle is more than just a pretty name. They are known for combining fashion with comfort to create what's been dubbed as the prettiest 12-hour. Don't take my word for it. Reviewers constantly rave about how comfortable they are, and the shoes have been seen on celebrities like Jennifer Lopez, Jodi Sweeten and Adele, so it's safe to say these are the "it girl" bridal shoes. Whether you are looking for a pair of classic satin heels, bridal block heels adorned with lace or a fun pair of wedding flats for your reception, you'll find them at Bella Belle.
