You’ve got your wedding dress picked out and now it’s time to accessorize. Shoes are the perfect accessory to glam up your look, because what says luxury more than a pretty pair of shoes? Plus it is an accessory you can always wear again after the wedding, so major bonus here! With wedding season almost upon us, I’ve put together a list of the best splurge designer bridal shoes just for you.
In Toronto, we don’t have a huge selection of high end retailers to shop from, so you may have to shop around until you find what you want (or you can try shopping online if you know exactly what you want). Remember, designer shoes often fit smaller than usual with their European fit. Happy shopping!
Best Splurge Designer Bridal Shoes – Nudes and Metallics
When you think of bridal shoes, most couples think of keeping it simple with nudes and metallics. Perfectly blending in underneath your white wedding gown but with just a hint of glam. Also if you plan on wearing the shoes again, they will make for a great everyday or evening pump.

Couples opting for a more classic look will appreciate some more traditionally styled designs with not too much bling. Great for everyday wear after the wedding!

Best Splurge Designer Bridal Shoes – Honourable Mentions
A few more worth mentioning!
Canadians are always coveting BHLDN, maybe it is something about it not being available here. Their wedding dresses are super beautiful and dreamy, but so are their accessories. Left: Petula Heels from BHLDN; Right: Isabella Scalloped Heel from BHLDN.
Who says the girls have all the fun? One last honourable mention – Bride and groom Christian Louboutins from a modern Four Season Wedding.
