If there’s any time in your life to splurge on a pair of designer shoes, it’s 100 percent your wedding. Whether you’ve had your eye on a specific designer for years or you just want to feeling like royalty on your wedding day, a killer pair of luxurious shoes is worth the investment. And the bonus of choosing a fashion forward pair of shoes that doesn’t scream “wedding?” You’re way more likely to wear them after you’ve said “I Do.”

Below are 20 — yes, TWENTY! — pairs of stunning, splurge-worthy shoes we love for your wedding day.

White, But Make it Modern

If you want to wear white shoes on your wedding day, give your look a modern twist with all-over pearl embellishments, sculptural crystal details, or a minimalist ivory bootie perfect for pairing with a bridal suit.
