Wedding Ballet Flats

Updated on September 23, 2014

Walkable, danceable kicks bundle comfort with style

Wedding ballet flats are unbeatable if comfort is a priority on your big day. You can wear heels for the ceremony, then slip into these gorgeous flats for the reception. Or you can choose all-day comfort and just wear ballet flats from start to finish. Wedding flats are so lovely now; who would blame you?

Some brides -- for budgetary, eco-conscious or other reasons -- hope to wear their wedding shoes again after the big day, or pass them on to a friend, sister or daughter someday. But receptions can be messy, and it's challenging to avoid spots or at least some dinginess on a pair of gleaming white satin kicks by the end of a lively party. If you choose a satin or other fabric type style, it could conceivably be dyed afterward by an experienced cobbler. Or to keep things white, try carefully spot-treating with Oxyclean and a bit of water, preferably using a hairdryer set on low heat afterward to prevent the water from permanently spotting your shoes.

Whether you're shopping for just one day or hoping for a (shoe) life beyond the wedding, here's a handpicked list of beautiful styles in colors from traditional to more daring. Happy hunting, and congratulations!

white / ivory / pearl

This is a regal looking ballerina flat for the bride. While a Badgley Mischka gown might not fit most budgets, the label's shoes bring the same glamor at a more attainable price point.

 

More options

The Betsey Johnson Dance Flat comes in silver or "Tiffany blue" as well as ivory -- and all 3 shades have soles in that pretty blue hue. (Hence the name of this bridal footwear line, Betsey Johnson Blue?)

The Brianna Leigh Flower has a soft floral detail at the toe, in white or ivory.

Finally, this very affordable style comes in ivory or gold with a gently pointed toe. It does run small, so choose your size accordingly.

 

blush / nude

Among other colors, this one also comes in a white eyelet that would be adorable for a summer wedding. Or if you're passionate about purple, the "grape" could be fun underneath a sweeping bridal gown.

 

gold / silver

This one comes in gold, too, and boasts major sparkle factor.

More options

Three winning styles to look up from Kate Spade: The Gerona and the Grenadine both come in a lovely rose-gold hue and feature a leg-elongating pointed toe, while the Bernice is as girly as it gets, in ivory satin with a silvery bow print.

The Badgley Mischka Ballie is a classy "platino" (soft metallic gold) suede option.
