Consider the Venue

First when selecting the best shoe for your big day, you need to consider the venue of your wedding. Will it be indoors or outdoors? Is it a casual or formal setting? This will help you narrow down your choices and choose a pair of shoes that will be appropriate for the occasion. If your wedding is outdoors, for example, you may want to opt for flats or a pair of trendy boots.

Think About Comfort

Your wedding day is a long day, and you want to be comfortable. While you may be tempted to choose a pair of shoes that look great but are uncomfortable, this is not a good occasion to risk discomfort, especially when there are comfortable alternatives that are just as chic. Look for shoes that have cushioned soles, support your feet, and fit well. You don't want to be in pain or have blisters holding you back from your best experience. My suggestion is a quality block heel pump or another sturdy alternative. Choose heels that are lower, more supportive, and more comfortable to wear for extended periods. You can't go wrong with a pair of Everlane pumps. These shoes are beyond sleek and come in a variety of colors from bold to neutral. They are high quality and can be worn beyond your wedding day you maximize your investment. Everlane is one of my favorite shoe brands and their style is perfect for minimal modern brides opting for alternative attire.

Match Your Style

Your shoes should match your overall style and the aesthetic of your wedding. If you’re going for a modern minimalist theme, then sleek and simple shoes will be the perfect fit. You may want to consider a pair of white or nude-colored shoes, as they will blend in with your wedding dress and won’t clash with any other colors in your outfit. However, you're definitely not limited to white or neutrals. Consider adopting the latest trends and pair a bold shoe with a neutral dress. So fun!

Don't Forget About the Weather

It's important to consider the weather when choosing your shoes. If you're getting married in the summer, you may want to choose a pair of sandals or open-toed shoes. If you're getting married in the winter, on the other hand, you may want to choose a pair of boots or closed-toe shoes. Also, if there's a chance of rain, you may want to avoid suede or other materials that could be damaged by water. Do your best to find a shoe that is both practical and beautiful while being weather-appropriate.

Consider Your Wedding Dress

Your wedding shoes should complement your wedding dress. If you have a long dress, for example, you may want to choose a pair of heels to add height and create an elegant look. If your dress is short, on the other hand, you may want to choose a pair of flats or pumps, or even a bootie! Your options are endless.


When it comes to choosing the perfect minimalist modern wedding shoes, you should consider the venue, your comfort, your style, the weather, and your wedding dress. By taking these factors into account, you’ll be able to find a pair of shoes that are both stylish and comfortable, and that will help you look and feel your best on your special day. Remember to check out Everlane!

I hope this has helped you start your search for the perfect wedding day shoes! I'm wishing you all the best on your journey.
