Fancy wedding day flats

We definitely don’t blame you if you’re not a six-inch-stiletto kind of girl. So for your wedding day, maybe you’re already planning on ditching whatever practical-ish heels you have in mind before the reception (possibly for a pair of cool sneakers). But since we think it’s totally acceptable—and even chic—to walk down the aisle in shoes you’re comfortable in too, we’ve rounded up our favorite non-heel options that are pretty and perfect enough for your entire wedding day. Kick your feet up and shop them below.
