Your wedding day look isn't complete until you find a pair of shoes to match the rest of your ensemble. And while wedding heels and stilettos can add a few inches to your height, they're not always the most comfortable options, especially if you don't normally wear them in your everyday life. Enter: wedding flats. A stylish pair of bridal flats, such as summery sandals or ballerina flats, will keep you looking chic all day long without torturing your feet. And if you thought flats were only for casual dress codes, think again. Pointy-toe flats, such as D'Orsay styles, bring the same formality of heels, and you can dance the night away in them. And if you're wearing a wedding jumpsuit or pantsuit, a pair of trendy loafers will be the ideal addition to your outfit. Now, check out 23 bridal-approved flats, including slingbacks, sandals, Mary Janes, and T-straps to wear on your big day.
