22 of the best block-heel bridal shoes

Now that you’ve discovered your perfect wedding dress, and perhaps even a fabulous veil that will pair nicely with your look, and the perfect bridal jewellery, you are on the way to finalising your bridal style checklist. However, until you’ve found an exemplary pair of heels, unfortunately - you're not yet complete.


A continually overlooked component of bridal attire, wedding shoes tend to be hidden under drapes of satin fabric and cascades of ivory-ruffled tulle, causing soon-to-be brides to neglect their obligations of finding heels, till the very last minute.

Although your dress and other more visible elements of your bridal outfit often steal the spotlight, the right pair of heels is essential in complementing and rounding off your look. And while you might be keen to stick to classic white or ivory wedding shoes, searching for your ideal heels presents an opportunity for you to be more adventurous with your colour palette and perhaps add a spot of colour ‘Something Blue’ to your look. Either way, once you've established the look you're going for - or narrowed down some options - you'll need the right pair of shoes to finish off.

We’ve flipped through hundreds of block heel designs and selected a range of ravishing bridal shoes that will charm your entourage. From the high street brands to designers' names, we’ve compiled everything from Asos pointed-toe mesh heels and Whistles elegant strap sandals to glitzy embellishments thanks to the likes of Jimmy Choo and Freya Rose. Presenting you with a fabulous hand-picked selection of the very best block-heel bridal shoes to buy right now. Featuring high-quality materials and beautiful designs that suit a variety of bridal styles, comfortable to wear all day long.
