Your wedding style should be true to you, and for some that means leaving the heels at the altar—or forgoing them altogether. While sandals and other flat shoes are great alternatives, there's nothing quite like wedding sneakers—they're cool, comfy and come in a bunch of different styles. Want to add a bit of sparkle to your ensemble? Go with something glittery. Have a more classic sense of style? One word: lace. Or maybe you want something that's totally unique to your wedding? You can customize a pair! Whether you need some bridal sneakers to change into at the reception or you're planning on wearing them all day long, one of these gorgeous pairs is sure to win you over.
