Bridal shoes: Perfect heels

Bridal shoes: Perfect wedding heels
From pumps to jewelled mules, our pick of perfect bridal shoes. Butterfly-trim shoes by Rainbow Club at John Lewis

Mules, embroidery and jewels, here’s our pick of oh so glamorous bridal shoes to make that journey down the aisle a breeze

Bridal shoes are your chance to be bold and lavish – how often do we get the chance to wear jewel buckles, a butterfly on our heels or glamorous crystals on our toes? For this season you are spoiled for choice with mules, elegant pumps and classic bridal whites in the mix. Think of your wedding-day setting – block heels or lower pumps may be a better choice for uneven ground and also make it more likely you’ll want to dance all night. But don’t be too practical – if you want uber-glam and super high, then this is the day to do it. You can always pack the precious bridal shoes away and switch to a pair of comfy jewelled flip-flops for the after party. Here are are eight looks we love for strutting your stuff down the aisle.
