Your dream wedding outfit should definitely include a pair of dream wedding shoes. Whether you're looking for ultimate comfort or a pair of haute-couture stunners, wedding wedges are—hands down—one of the best footwear choices recommended by fashion experts and brides alike. "Wedges are a secret weapon to comfort!" says Dani Michelle, a celebrity stylist and DSW Fashion Authority. "I love having a wedge option for a wedding because all the walking, dancing, mingling and celebrating needs comfortable shoes," she explains, adding that wedges can achieve the same look as a wedding sandal or bridal pump.

Wedge wedding shoes are a safe and sturdy bet to last you the entire day and into the night. While you're shopping, take your ceremony and reception venues into consideration. The style of wedge you choose should support the type of ground you'll be on—whether that's a grassy lawn, a sandy beach or a repurposed barn floor out in the country.

The best bridal wedges are made so that the platform creates equal weight distribution from the balls of your feet to your toes, which can keep your ankles safer than high heels and eliminate pressure points, making for a more comfortable experience overall. "With a wedge, like any heel, you want to make sure your arch lies comfortably so that you have great support," Michelle explains. "I always say in a long dress, you really only need to consider if you want your toe to show or not, and if you're comfortable!"

One way to guarantee that you'll have the best fit on your wedding day is to break in your shoes in advance. You can wear them around your house to do housework (just be careful to keep them clean!). And if you find that they're hard or painful to prance around in (even with practice), consider swapping them out or adding a comfort-related accessory, like an arch insert or toe protector.

As for wedding wedge trends in 2022, Michelle says that "embellishments and lucite" are two styles to look out for. Now that you know what to look for in a wedding wedge, it's time to get shopping! We've rounded up the best wedding wedges to shop right now (including fashionable and stylist-approved picks from Michelle herself).
