Don’t let your bridal style fall flat with an unflattering, or even worse, uncomfortable pair of wedding shoes. From ballerinas to oxfords, these flat styles prove that it’s okay not to choose the tallest heels out there for your wedding and still look effortlessly chic before, during and ever after.

Enchanted Nostalgia

The lace laser cut detail adds a touch of formality to this once casual look. Nilly Laser Cute Jelly Flat by Salvatore Ferragamo available at Neiman Marcus for $270

The Dandy

Dapper and refined, the dandy exemplifies romance with Old-World elegance. This modern spin on a classic oxford works for the bride who wants to create a tailored look for her bridal style. Switch the laces to a grosgrain ribbon for a softer approach. Wit D’Orsay Oxfords by Freda Salvador available at shopbop.com for $375

Ever since I was a little boy I could be found sketching beautiful gowns and dreaming of love.  Over the years I have helped design and write other couple’s stories all while cultivating my own chapters in love.  With a background in fashion, I hope to inspire couples’ fashion on their very special day.
