Best Of 2016: Bridal Shoes

We love a good bridal shoe! The shoes a bride wears for her wedding can tell you a lot about her. They provide another opportunity for her to show her own personality and unique bridal style. They can be a statement piece featuring a bold color or striking embellishments, or they can be a more subtle, perfectly coordinating addition to her wedding look. Whether a bride chooses to go glam with her bridal shoe, showcase her elegant style, or add to the romance of the day, we love to see what bridal shoes a black tie bride goes with for her wedding day.

For today’s Best Of 2016 post, we’re sharing our favorite bridal shoes from this year. Each has an element that makes it a great fit for a black tie bride. Enjoy!


One: We adore this gorgeous Nina “Rhonae” bridal shoe. The classic ivory style with a pointed toe is the very picture of elegance. These pumps just say “bridal.” And with a floral and crystal applique, there’s just the right amount of glam to this beautiful satin shoe.
