Wedding season is soon upon us. For panicked brides who are yet to find their dream footwear? Do not fret. Here, Vogue Scandinavia curates the perfect shoes for your nuptials, whether an extravagant affair or an intimate city hall ceremony.

In putting together this guide, we spoke to wedded Vogue staffers for their footwear ‘dos and don’ts’. Eliza Sörman Nilsson, our digital editor, disclosed that her shoes were her biggest regret – explaining they were an impulse purchase that had conveniently fit well in the bridal suite, leaving her wishing that she had invested in a designer pair with more longevity. Her other tip: to be mindful of material, as the choice of satin – like hers – can result in damage beyond repair after just one wear.

Below, a comprehensive guide to the best bridal footwear to buy now with the Vogue Scandinavia stamp of approval.

Flat wedding shoes

There's a strong case to be made for the flat wedding shoe. No doubt, you'll be on your feet for almost all of the day and long into the evening – so it's wise to take the route of guaranteed comfort. A lack of heel doesn't need to equate to any lack of glamour, with crystal, pearl and buckle embellishments the key to making your pair truly wedding day worthy.

Heeled wedding shoes

Depending, of course, on hemline length, level of formality and the environment of the wedding venue, some brides will not settle for anything less than the most towering of heels. For slingback styles set on smaller, more stable foundations, look to Gucci or Sania D'mina. Or for the ultimate lift, pin-thin stilettos by Aquazzura and Versace are the answer. Our tip? Consider platform foundations if you're keen to save some pressure from your feet.
