If your wedding dress is more champagne than diamond white, these gold ballet flats are a fun choice. The strap means you won’t step out of them by accident. They also have a cushioned foot-bed so you can keep them on for your first dance.

If you’re wearing flats because your arches cower at the thought at the thought of a heel, we have a few options in mind for you. These shoes are designed specifically for their comfort quotient.
Gold Toe Lauren Comfort Lace Ballet Flat
It’s all in the name – these flats are comfy.
These comfort ballet flats have a non-slip rubber sole, arch support, and insole cushioning. The lace makes them the perfect match for a delicate dress, and they’ll last all night. If rounded toe shoes keep your feet more comfortable (we understand), these could be the right choice.

Simple, sparkly, and available in a lot of colors.
We love these ballet flats. We’re partial to the gold pair ourselves, but you can always go with hot pink or bright blue if you want to add a pop of color to your wedding day attire. The rubber sole and soft lining make them more comfortable than your average wedding day shoes
$18.99 – $25.99
ElegantPark Peep Toe Rhinestone Comfort Flats
Elegant beauty pairs with extreme comfort.
The pleated satin on these peep toe shoes will complement a satin gown or add some elegance to a matte fabric. Plus, the open toe lets you show off your pedicure. We think the rhinestones make these some of the best wedding flats, because they tie the shoes into your new ring. Best of all, the low heel and cushioning make them comfortable to walk around in all day.
Finding the best wedding flats can be quite the adventure.
