25 Fun and Colorful Retro Wedges for You and Your Bridesmaids

By now you already know that this site is not at all about following seasonal wedding trends. However if there’s one fad that I am completely in support of, it’s the emergence of wedge sandals as alternatives to the more formal (and traditional) bridal heels. In fact, we’ve already seen four brides — LaurenAbbeyErin and Mica — rock this look at their weddings on this blog.

Wedge heel sandals like the 25 colorful statement shoes I handpicked below can let you express yourself as creatively as you want while providing both style and, most importantly, comfort since they offer more stability than the typical heel.  Trust me on this one — with all the activity you’ll be doing before and during your special day, you’ll be doing yourself a huge favor by choosing relatively feet-friendlier footwear!

Here now is a selection of the latest (and cutest!) wedges from our site sponsors.

  1. This is such a fun post! I love the idea of brides sporting cute colorful shoes! When I got marries, I wore white ballet flats 7 years ago. My favorite show is no. 19!

  2. Thank you so much for stopping by Jenn, good on you for wearing comfy shoes! I got married in 2-inch-heeled strappy sandals 9 years ago — I wish I had the idea back then to wear wedge sandals or flats like you did.. oh well! Ooh #19 is a great choice! 🙂
