With Cinderella's dainty slipper in their collective memories, some brides seldom think about comfortable shoes on the big day. But there's no wisdom in wearing wobbly stilettos to an event at which you might actually want to dance. Modern brides are opting for practical wedding shoes that can be worn more than once, as opposed to extremely high-heeled shoes that leave their tootsies blistered on the honeymoon. Also, we get it: Some very tall brides prefer to seek out more sensible heels, including flats, wedges and kitten heels that may also boast cushioned footbeds and supportive straps. So if you, too, want to dance the night away at your wedding, check out this list of swoon-worthy wedding flats that are just as ravishing as 4-inch heels (and much more practical). These styles from ASOS, Nordstrom, David's Bridal and more will take you from the ceremony to the after party in blissful comfort.
