We’ve been asked more than once for our pick of the best places to buy wedding shoes. And today we are answering your call! Now you don’t need to go to a specific ‘wedding shoe’ store or brand for bridal shoes, in fact many brides use their wedding as an opportunity to invest in a pair of designer heels they’ve always wanted, while others rock something entirely untraditional, like trainers, boots, or flats. But if you’ve got your heart set on clicking your newlywed heels in a gorgeous pair of white (or blue or blush or silver) wedding shoes, we thought you’d like to know about some of our fave go-to wedding shoe brands!

Where to Shop for Wedding Shoes
The best places to shop for wedding shoes are in bridal boutiques(you’ll find our favourites here), in everyday fashion retailers (our favourites are listed below) and direct from the brands themselves. It’s worth bearing in mind that online orders to Ireland from outside the EU may be subject to additional duties and tax, post-Brexit. You’ll find more information on those here.
