When it comes to your wedding shoes, it's up to you to decide if you want to wow with your kicks or would rather have a simple pair of heels that quietly complements your wedding attire. The one thing you for sure don't want on your wedding day? Feet that are so sore they'll have you sitting down instead of tearing up the dance floor.

That's why we're such big fans of block heel wedding shoes. They come in a wide variety of gorgeous styles, but they're also crazy comfortable, thanks to the stability of a thicker sole. There's no wobbly walking on skinny, sky-high stilettos here—rather, you'll be able to walk and dance the night away, steady and sure-footed while still looking stylish.

Below, we're rounding up a great selection of block heel bridal shoes. From traditional pairs that play a supporting role to those that steal the show with major bling, we've found it all—including high heels, low heels and a variety of heel heights in between. The best part? You can scoop any of them up right now with a couple of clicks.
