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] and House of Brides .
  • Moderate bride shoes usually cost $100 to $250. Peter Fox[2] 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[3] 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.[4] This includes shoes, jewelry and other extras (not counting the dress, veil or headpiece).
