Wedding Shoe Alternatives: Casual & Comfy

May 7, 2012

Like typical girls, we here at Little Things love a good pair of shoes.  Erica is the high heel fashionista, Kristi & Jessica have flats in every color, Nikita is the boot fanatic and my closet is full of sneakers and slip-on’s.  Though we have such differing footwear preferences, we can all usually agree on a gorgeous pair of fancy bridal shoes (like some of the ones in the picture).  Then I started wondering about non-traditional bridal footwear:  what about the bride who doesn’t want to be taller than her soon to be husband?  Or the bride with bad feet?  Or the brides who just hate stilettos and heels?  So I organized this list of shoe alternatives for weddings.

TOMS® – If you’re not familiar with TOMS®, check out their website here. They’re for a great cause:  every time you buy a pair, another pair will be donated to a child in need.  A recent discovery for me, and I’m obsessed.  I want a pair to match every outfit because they’re so freakin’ comfy.  They even have wedges if you’re looking for a comfortable heel to wear.

Flip Flops – For the beach wedding, of course!  And I don’t mean the cheap, rubber thong flip flops you can buy from a dollar store.  Our Personalized Flip Flops or Personalized Flower Flip Flops ensure a safe and comfortable walk down the aisle.  Plus you can give a pair to the girls in your wedding party as the bridesmaid gifts.

Converse – You can’t go wrong with a pair of All-Stars.  They’re available in literally every single color, and you can have so much fun with them.  I was browsing pictures on the web, and I’ve seen the cutest photos of stuff couples did – like writing their vows on the sides of a classic pair of black Chuck high tops.

Vans Shoes® – I’m not exaggerating when I say I live in my Vans.  Like Converses, you can pretty much find them in every color.  Again, I stumbled upon some pretty cool pictures of slip-on’s worn in weddings, including complete artwork drawn in black marker on a white pair.  So cool.

I would definitely consider any of these as wedding shoe alternatives.  Though I probably wouldn’t mind a fancy pair of Louboutins (as long as my rich fiance can afford them).

Any other ideas?  We have three engaged women in the office who are dying to know!
