While all eyes are usually on the wedding dress, there are plenty of other important details that matter when it comes to rounding out your wedding day ensemble. Shoes are one of those details—no outfit is complete without them and they can make or break your look. They also hold a good bit of symbolism on your wedding day (you know, the whole "stepping into a new stage of life" thing), making them one accessory to-be-weds often put a lot of consideration into.

For many brides, white wedding shoes are the best option. Aside from the fact that white shoes naturally have a bridal feel to them, they will also go best with any white or ivory gown. Choosing the best white wedding shoe for the big day means also considering the style of your dress and the overall vibe of the wedding. If you've opted for a classic and traditional look, you may want simple white pumps. For a beach wedding with a boho gown, flat white sandals make sense. If you want your shoes to be more of a statement piece, opt for something more dramatic, like a heel with feather embellishments or plenty of beading or sparkle. To look a bit trendy, search out chic ballet flats or even a pair of fun white boots.

Of course, comfort also plays a part. Stiletto heels are nice to look at, but block heels are going to be more sturdy, stable, and durable—and will make it easier to tear it up on the dance floor. Low heels will add a bit of height without being too painful. You can always keep a pair of flats on hand to change into. Whatever you're looking for, we've pulled together a list of some great options for every style and every budget.

White Wedding Heels

Badgley Mischka Cher Crystal Embellished Pump

Satin pumps with crystal brooch on toe

These classic satin pumps are a great choice for the bride going for a more traditional look. An embellished crystal brooch at the pointed toe adds some subtle sparkle that would balance out a simple gown.

Revolve Nalebe Dimante Mule

You can never have too much sparkle. Case in point: These glittery mules. The structured bows make these fun and feminine. Another plus? They'll photograph beautifully.

Loeffler Randall Margi Optic White Bow Heel

Italian leather pump with bow on front

Made of white Italian leather, these heeled sandals are seriously chic and feminine. They have a padded footbed and the heel isn't too high, so they're also super comfortable. Our favorite part? The cute bows on the front.

Kiara Crystal Back Open Toe Pump

It's hard to go wrong with an open-toe pump, which has a classic and slightly vintage feel. This one features a crystal embellished heel that adds some glitter without feeling overwhelming.

Lelanee White Satin Rhinestone Bow Ankle Strap Pumps

The rhinestone encrusted criss-cross ankle straps are what really make these pumps special. A dainty feminine bow at the toe is a timeless bridal touch.

Jimmy Choo Bing 100 Embellished High Heel Mules

Opting for closed-toe mules is a stylish way to keep your feet warm for a cold winter wedding. These showstoppers feature a beautiful crystal embellished strap for a more formal feel.

White Block Heel Wedding Shoes

Badgley Mischka Collection Firey Ankle Strap Sandal

A crystal studded ankle strap is really what makes these white heels stand out. The sturdy block heels means these are easy to walk and dance in—even if they're over 3 inches high.

Badgley Mischka Collection Tess Ankle Strap Sandal

These standout heels have a satin fabric that feels ideal for a spring or summer wedding. The oversized bow gives these white wedding shoes an of-the-moment vibe. The block heel is almost 4 inches high but is still comfy. We call that a bridal fashion win.

Franco Sarto Lisa Sandals

A lower, translucent block heel gives these strappy sandals a trendy vibe. A dainty ankle strap offers additional security, which is always a plus. We envision this pair working for a more laid back destination wedding on the beach.

Bella Belle Valerie Block Bridal Shoes With Ankle Strap Crystal Vine Heels

Pointed block heels with embellished vine across front

Rhinestone crystals and silver threading create a gorgeous floral and vine design along the pointed toe of these block heels. With an ankle strap and smaller heel, these are a smart—and stunning—choice for an outdoor wedding.

Naturalizer Vera Ankle Strap Sandal

Ankle strap sandal with block heel

These sandals are dressy and practical enough for your wedding. Between the ankle strap, the smaller block heel, and the Contour+ technology that guarantees a perfect fit, these will definitely be comfortable enough to help you get through the entire day.

White Low Heel Wedding Shoes

Sarah Flint Wedding Parker Sling 50

Low-heeled slingbacks with polkadot mesh

Calling all old souls. These low-heeled slingbacks have a distinctly vintage vibe. Polka dot mesh and leather flowers at the toe add pretty detail. And, the blue padded footbed feels quintessentially bridal.

Badgley Mischka Ultima Strappy Block Heel Sandals

Strappy heels with rhinestones

Planning an outdoor wedding with a more glamorous vibe? Consider these strappy shoes with a low block heel. They're equal parts comfy and glitzy.

Lulu's Julie White Ankle Strap Heels

Minimalist ankle strap heels

Sometimes simple really is best, as is the case with these budget-friendly ankle strap heels. The minimalist design makes them versatile and the low heel means you can wear them for hours on end.

Dolce Vita Zalima Heels

Ankle strap heels with pearl encrusted straps on front

A more elevated take on a heeled sandal, these Dolce Vita shoes were just made for outdoor nuptials. The pearl encrusted front straps gives a sweet nod to the pearlcore trend.

Journee Collection Riva Pump

Leather criss cross strap heels

Made of luxe vegan leather, these pumps have an adjustable criss cross strap design that looks good and feels sturdy. The kitten heel and pointed toe are elegant touches, while the supportive fit will feel keep your feet feeling fabulous all night.

White Wedding Boots

Lulus Unite White Snake Ankle Booties

Rustic brides, these are for you. These Western-inspired white booties feature a fun snake detail and a faux leather material. These are perfect to change into for dancing at a low-key reception or for a more casual wedding.

Raye Elsie Boot

Wear the unexpected with a white wedding boot. This elevated style with a sleek effect is both stylish—and a little bit over the top—in the best way possible.

Franco Sarto Pisabooty Booties

The white faux leather, square toe and rounded heel of these boots gives them a trendy vibe. Inspired by Italian architecture, this über-modern pair would pair well with a sculptural wedding dress or power suit.

Lulus SB-Candy White Pearl Pointed-Toe Knee-High Boots

One word: Disco. These sparkly pointed toe boots covered in iridescent faux pearls and rhinestones make an amazing after party shoe. Bonus: These insoles are conveniently padded with soft materials so you can dance and groove all night long.

White Flat Wedding Shoes

Jack Rogers Serena Ballet Flat

Ballet flats are having a moment and they conveniently work great for brides, thanks to their delicate look. This sparkly pair with a dainty gold bow on the toe is definitely fancy enough for your big day.

Sam Edelman Linnie Mule

Sleek and chic, these slide mules are incredibly easy to slip on and off, which is especially useful if you're planning to switch up your footwear throughout your day. A pretty gold buckle gives this otherwise understated pair a more formal feel.

Journee Collection Vielo Flat

Low heel closed sandal with ankle strap and bow

If you want to wear a lower heel but still want white wedding shoes with a dressy feel, then opt for these. They have a tiny block heel that gives you just a little lift without any discomfort. The ankle strap and pointed toe make these very versatile.

Journee Collection Women's Mikki Vinyl Flat

Simply chic, these are a timeless pair of comfortable wedding shoes. The pointed toe and stylish trim can be worn with any wedding dress. Another thought? We love the idea of wearing these to a more casual civil ceremony.

Reformation Maya Flat Sandal

Not all wedding sandals are created equal. These super stylish ones have a strap that wraps around your ankle for that summer picnic look. They're ideal for outdoor weddings and are definitely more polished than white flip-flops.
