Wedding gowns sure look nice with slingback stilettos and open-toed shoes, but these are discouraged during winter. And while it might seem like options are limited, there is a wide variety of shoes a bride could don for her winter wedding. Wedding dresses can look just as great in close-toed flats, pumps, and even boots.
If you are still unsure of the unlimited options you have as a winter bride, have a look at some of our favorites for your inspiration.
Brides Often Ask
What shoes do winter brides wear?
Brides can wear heels, boots, and even booties for their winter weddings. However, closed-toed shoes are preferred to protect the feet against the cold weather.
Is it OK to wear open-toe shoes to a winter wedding?
It’s up to the bride to wear what she wants for her wedding. However, open-toed shoes are discouraged because the feet would need to be protected from the frigid air.
Winter Shoes With Heels
Close-toed shoes with heels such as timeless pumps or ankle boots with stiletto heels can look lovely with a wedding dress. For a minimalist look, you could choose winter wedding shoes with heels in sleek patent leather or for a more lavish style, you can get the pumps of your dreams. A glitzy pair in leather or satin covered stylishly in glitter or jewels. A dazzling choice for a fairytale wedding. Make the statement of the evening while walking down the aisle, or on the dancefloor.

Open Toe Shoes For A Bride
While open-toed shoes might be a bit adventurous for a winter wedding, there is no limit on what you can wear, especially if you’re having an indoor celebration. Bridal shoes for a winter wedding with open toes will always look great under a long or mid length wedding dress. Your expertly manicured toes peeking out give these type of shoes that extra style that others do not possess. A style that works well with high heels, kitten heels or even flats.

Jeweled And Glitter Shoes
While sleek and minimalist can be a good idea for shoes to wear to winter weddings, sometimes you want some pomp and pageantry for such a special day. Such a celebratory occasion deserves something extra, so why not go for sparkle, glitter, or even jewels.
Whatever type of shoe you’ve settled on for your big day. Stiletto heeled pumps, booties, flats or even open toed, you can find a pair with that little bit of extra. You could choose glittery gold, copper or silver shoes, or a sparkly option in gorgeous rhinestones. Only the best for the modern bride.
