Bridal flats make perfect sense for a variety of reasons. Whether you’re used to wearing heels or not, flats will keep your feet happy all day long. With flats, you’ll be comfortable from the moment you walk down the aisle to the minute you hang up your dancing shoes for the evening.
There’s also a lower risk of tripping or succumbing to a dress disaster like a torn hem. Flats are particularly great fits for outdoor weddings too as Martha Stewart Weddings describes:
“Heels definitely help improve stature and posture, but comfort should always come first if you are having an outdoor wedding, Sabatino stresses. While wedge or block heels are definitely fashionable, these same shoes often prove to be very difficult to walk in if your wedding is outside.”
Heels aren’t for every bride, and with the wide range of super chic, wedding-worthy flats currently available, you can still look and feel like a princess without your sky-high glass slippers! We share the best bridal flats out there right now so you can find the perfect pair for your big day.
Fit for royalty
These handmade flats by Emmy London are so stunning and stylish you forget that they’re flat!

The rest of the shoe is made from an indulgent matte ivory suede.
The Florence Flat Ivory is handmade in Portugal and designed and hand-finished at Emmy’s London boutique.
