From traditional white pumps to comfy ballet slippers, a bride's shoes can vary widely in both price and style. Some free-spirited brides go barefoot or don jeweled flip-flops, the least expensive shoe options, while others opt for Italian leather pumps or crystal-adorned heels.

Typical costs:

  • Inexpensive bridal shoes typically range from $25 to $75. David's Bridal[1] , House of Brides and Payless Shoe Source[2] carry styles in a budget price range.
  • Moderate bride shoes usually cost $100 to $250. Peter Fox[3] falls into this category, offering Italian-made shoes, with styles worn by celebrities in film and television. Bliss Bridal Shoes are also in the moderate range, at around $150 per pair.
  • Expensive shoes are typically $300 to $900 and up. Nordstrom and Saks Fifth Avenue[4] carry styles upwards of $900. Designer Stuart Weitzman's bridal collection carries both moderate and expensive shoe styles.
  • The average cost of all bridal accessories is $333, according to the Bridal Association of America.[5] This includes shoes, jewelry and other extras (not counting the dress, veil or headpiece).

What should be included:
  • A bride's shoes may be white or another color, according to a Q&A at The Knot[6] . Silver and blue remain fashionable bridal shoe colors.
  • Popular styles include flats, pumps, sandals and ballet slippers. Shoes may be satin or leather in appearance and plain or adorned in jewels, bows or beading.
Additional costs:
  • Online retailers may charge $5 to $9 extra for shipping. The cost may be per pair or a flat fee for the entire order. Free shipping is often available with a minimum purchase.
  • Brides.com includes a glossary of matching hosiery, which can range from $5 to $10.
Discounts:
  • Fat Wallet[7] and Coupon Cabin[8] both offer coupon codes to use at online retailer Shoes.com.[9]
  • Online discount retailers like Overstock[10] and eBay[11] carry shoes in every price range. eBay's selection may range from a $20 pair of basic white pumps to $500 Italian-made designer pumps.
Shopping for wedding shoes:
  • When choosing a heeled shoe, consider your height in comparison to your groom, how much you are willing to hem your dress and how comfortable the shoes will be.
  • The Wedding Channel[12] lists tips for matching shoes with a wedding dress and keeping feet comfortable. Many brides bring a second pair of shoes to change into for the reception.
  • Brides.com offers a helpful glossary of bridal shoe terminology.
