It's no secret that fancy footwear isn't always the most practical. But we're here to tell you that comfortable wedding shoes do exist! Even if you're after an ultra-formal bridal look, there are plenty of stylish wedding heels and flats that won't hurt your feet—you just need to know where to look. Luckily, we do, and we've rounded up a bunch of comfortable shoes that you'll actually want to wear the entire wedding day.

Before we dive in, what counts as "comfortable?" Well, we looked for kicks from comfort-forward brands, which, believe it or not, make fashionable bridal footwear! We also kept an eye out for comfortable features like thick and low heels (buh-bye wobbly legs), padded footbeds (to support all that standing) and flexible fabrics (so your toes don't get squished).

That said, we have some advice before you add anything to your shopping cart: Read the product descriptions, check out the measurements and peruse the ratings to find the best footwear for you. Comfort really depends on your specific needs, so look for features that'll suit your unique feet. Are you searching for shoes for wide or narrow feet? Do you need extra arch support? Are you prone to blisters? Read the reviews and look for customers like you—their feedback can help you find the perfect pair.

And, of course, test your shoes after you make your purchase. It's important to break them in, not to mention make sure they're really, truly comfortable on you. Plus, your shoes will help you finalize any outfit alterations.

Now that you're prepared, check out our picks for the most comfortable wedding shoes for brides.
