Wedding Shoes That Aren’t 6 Inch Heels

Your wedding day is a BUSY day! From getting ready to making sure everything is perfect and of course marrying the love of your life! It’s go, go, go from the start. Not to mention, dancing the night away and making your rounds to your guests will have a lot of pressure on your feet too. Of course, you’ll still want to look amazing while doing it all, but those tall heels may not be cutting it. Let us introduce the wedding shoes that aren’t six inch heels, but still just as cute below!

Pro tip: Don’t forget to bring your shoes to your dress appointments & be sure to let your tailor know what shoe type you’re wearing! This will help you get a full visual and ensure your gown isn’t too short or too long.

Small Heels

Okay, this one is still a heel, but not nearly as high! Think 2-3” max. Heels in this range usually contain a chunky heel which makes it not only easier to walk in, but also so trendy! Keep it simple with neutrals or bling it out, there’s so many options. Plus, you can definitely wear these again and again. 


Sandals are so popular for beach weddings already, but don’t stop there. They still work for boho weddings, intimate soirees in the backyard, elopements, and more!

Ah, my personal favorite: wedding sneakers. There’s really nothing more comfy than throwing on a pair of sneakers to break down that dance floor! Whether they’re fully custom Chuck Taylors or a sparkly pair from Kate Spade, you bet everyone in heels will be so envious of you.

Flats, Loafers, & Mules

Flats are of course a go-to for those of us who hate wearing heels or the exceptionally tall. But if you’re bucking tradition and tossing the heels, why not go for something truly unique though? Consider loafers and mules for your wedding day attire! These shoe types will look amazing when paired with a bridal jumpsuit too!

Heels just don’t qualify for those winter weddings, rain-filled affairs, and mountain elopements. For those days, why not throw on some boots instead? Totally practical AND still very chic. Or a hidden surprise under your dress. Either way, your feet will be thanking you!
