Other than your dress, your shoes are one of the most important components of your wedding look and probably the next purchase you'll make after finding "the one." Just like your day in general, your footwear should be a reflection of your personal style. While wedding boots for brides may not be the first bridal shoe that comes to mind, boots are a chic—and practical—option for several reasons: They tend to be more stable and thus easier to move (and dance) in than traditional heels, they're versatile enough to work for a variety of locations and themes and you will likely wear them again after the celebrations are over. Whether you're planning to line dance, disco, or otherwise bust a move on your day, we've rounded up our fave wedding boots. From weatherproof rustic cowgirl boots to elegant crystal-embellished booties, shop our picks below.

Bridal Boots vs. Booties: How to Choose

Brides: You make the rules when it comes to your wedding wardrobe, so the shoes you choose to strut down the aisle in should be based entirely on personal preference. However, if you're having trouble deciding (and with so many incredible options out there, we don't blame you), here are a few tips.

If you've chosen to go the boot route, consider what type of heel you'll feel most comfortable in. A block heel is a great option for dancing, while stilettos are perfect for adding a bit of height. Of course, there are plenty of boots with no heel at all, if that's more your style. Next, it's time to choose between boots and booties. If you're planning to wear a full-length gown, it might not make sense to wear knee-high boots since they'll be covered throughout much of the night. In this case, a bootie can likely offer the style and comfort you're looking for. Alternately, if you're going the less traditional route and sporting a stylish bridal mini, a pair of knee-high boots can be the perfect way to finish off your look. Plus, they'll keep your legs warm if your wedding is taking place outside.
