Wedding shoe inspiration from real brides and grooms

When it comes to making big decisions inspiration is the key, especially when it comes from people that have gone down the same road, in this case, real couples who have already walked down that road (or more like down the aisle). Now it’s time to picture yourself walking in their shoes! Here’s some wedding shoe inspiration from real brides and grooms.

Your bridal or formal footwear should be comfy and beautiful, but also should suit your personality and wedding style (like not wearing stilettos to a garden wedding or pumps on the beach). Keep scrolling to see what real couples chose to wear on their wedding day.
