What Shoes Should You Wear to Your Winter Wedding? The Perfect Bridal Bootie Of Course

Strappy sandals aren’t always an option when you’re getting married in the cold winter months — and this season has been especially harsh. A great alternative is the dressy bootie. Here are five of our favorites for winter brides.

Sheer Bling

Caparros Ella Bootie//The Knot Blog

This bootie is perfect for the bride who likes a bit of subtle sparkle. It adds to her look, but doesn’t not distract anyone from her gorgeous dress.

Oscar de la Renta//The Knot Blog

Wearing anything designed by the master, Oscar de la Renta, will make you feel unbelievably glamourous. The T-strap detail is a perfect little touch. And while these may be on the pricey side, think of them as a investment since you can definitely wear them after the wedding.

Lacy Lady

Betsey Johnson//The Knot Blog

These remind us of early era Madonna — in a good way. The lace detailing is sexy, but not too sexy.

Modern Wedge

Burberry//The Knot Blog

A leather wedge is certainly not for every bride. But for those of you choosing a more modern or progressive style of dress and ceremony, this Burberry wedge is perfect. And you can even wear them with a maxi dress on your honeymoon or a pair of skinny jeans running errands on the weekend.

Hole in One

Pedro Garcia//The Knot Blog

This style is also less traditional — but how fun is a mesh peep-toe? It’s like you’ll be hiding a funky surprise underneath your dress.
