We get it: Sky-high stilettos aren't for everyone. For a day as busy as your wedding, we totally understand prioritizing comfort and going for flat wedding shoes instead of high heels. Maybe you've already planned to ditch the heels after your ceremony—plenty of people switch into comfortable wedding shoes at the reception, whether that's a pair of wedding sneakers or stylish sandals. But you're also more than welcome to leave the heels behind completely. It's totally acceptable (and even chic) to walk down the aisle in a pair of ballerina flats, strappy sandals or slip-on mules.

Need visual proof? We've curated our favorite wedding flats that are special enough for your entire day, especially if you're getting married outdoors or planning to let loose on the dance floor. Kick your feet up and shop our picks, below.
