Our Favorite Black Wedding Shoes for Nontraditional Brides
Though it's often dubbed as the least bridal of hues, we think black absolutely has a place on the wedding day. That's especially true when it comes to accessories. Black wedding shoes have recently become one of our favorite big-day fashion trends. When styled with the stark white of a sleek column dress or the soft ivory of an ethereal tulle A-line wedding dress, a dark-yet-delicate evening shoe has been proven to anchor otherwise ethereal looks and sharply complement those with a sleek structure.
Another reason why we love black wedding shoes? They're timeless, and they can be worn time and time again once the wedding is over. Black pumps, strappy sandals, bejeweled ballerinas, and illusion lace booties always withstand the test of time and are the type of accessories you can use long after you say "I do." That's why investing in a really special pair makes sense—splurging on a white shoe you'll never wear again can be hard to do, but selecting a versatile black accessory you can wear in so many different ways is something just about any bride can see the value in. Plus, investing in a black bridal accessory will undoubtedly up your style stock for the day-of.
Sold on the black wedding shoe trend? You're in luck. Here, we've rounded up a selection of different styles we love—and that are all available right now. No matter what your personal style may be or where you're tying the knot, we think you'll find something you like ahead.
