So we love a pair of sky high stilettos as much as the next gal, they're sexy, flattering and glamorous.
But when it comes to navigating the aisle, circulating at cocktail hour, and hitting the dancefloor at your wedding – a whirlwind day spent four inches off the ground, becomes a series of trip hazards and blister inducers if you're not a seasoned heel-wearer.
Which is why we, as every-day sporters of flip flops, boots, trainers, and pumps, are head over (no!) heels, with beautiful bridal flats.

From dainty ballerina pumps and chic peep-toes, to fun white trainers or ethically minded glitter Toms, wedding flats can be just as stylish, just as gorgeous, and way (way, way!) more comfortable big day footwear.
Make a statement and wear them as your something blue, or hide them under the layers of your gown so your guests need never know you skipped the stilettos!
