Why Go Sky-High? Try Kitten Heels For Your Wedding Day

For many brides, the concept of wearing flats on their wedding day is unimaginable. And yet so is the idea of teetering around in super high heels all night long to the point of pain. Enter the kitten heel. You’ll still get a little lift but you won’t need a painkiller midway through the reception.

We love these five styles, most of which you could actually wear again with other outfits!

The Slingback

The silver adds a dressy touch to the leather and the toe isn’t so pointy that it looks painful. Plus, you could wear these with a chic sheath to the office post-honeymoon.

The Pump

Not everyone loves a strappy shoe and this is a great alternative. And for all you animal-friendly and vegan brides, it’s a perfect option because there’s no leather involved — it just looks like there is.

The Bejeweled

Diamonds (or rhinestones as the case may be) are a girl’s best friend. We love the idea of guests catching a glimpse of sparkle beneath your dress as you tear up the dance floor with your new groom.
