Leather shoes, which may seem like a small detail, are actually one of the key elements of a wedding outfit. They must be elegant, comfortable and perfectly matched to the chosen outfit. So, how do you make the best choice to enjoy this unforgettable day? Here's a detailed overview of the different styles of shoes to wear on the big day.

01 What are the most comfortable women's shoes to wear to a wedding?

Men's Derbies Bruno 2 and Women's Mules Eglantine 1 Melvin & Hamilton

If you don't feel comfortable in your shoes, you won't be able to enjoy the wedding to the fullest. Therefore, go for a comfortable and elegant pair of shoes such as woven leather shoes. The suppleness of the braided leather will ensure comfort and ease of movement throughout the day. In terms of colour, a model in gold or silver shades will underline the festive side of your outfit. You can also opt for feminine sandals with narrow straps which will go perfectly with a long dress.

For a more formal outfit, combine a trouser jacket or long dress with lace-up shoes, preferably Oxford shoes, the perfect model for special occasions! If you choose a pair with a flexible and soft sole, you will be able to dance all night long!

Which flat shoes should you choose for a wedding?

Women's Mules Scarlett 77 Melvin & Hamilton

At the top of our list of summer favourites are flat leather shoes. Mules, sandals or ballerinas are ideal for the hottest days and are the perfect companion for a summer wedding with a colourful jumpsuit, flowing silk trousers or an embroidered dress. Grass, sand, pebbles... Flat women's shoes adapt to any surface and therefore to any type of wedding. Once the wedding season is over, they can easily be worn with your less festive outfits.

What kind of heels to choose for a wedding?

High heels are of course a must for such a special occasion. They elongate the figure, give confidence, and add a touch of glamour to any outfit. But it's not about sacrificing comfort for aesthetics. Chunky heels or wedges will be the best allies for those who want to dance the night through without ending the party barefoot.

What women's shoes should you choose for a bohemian wedding?

Women's Mules Eglantine 1 Melvin & Hamilton

Are you invited to a countryside or boho style wedding? Then you should choose a comfortable and easy to put on pair of shoes like ballet pumps or flat mules. You will be able to remove your shoes whenever you want to feel the grass or sand underneath your feet. When it comes to materials, opt for supple leather or suede, and for soft, summery colours: pastel pink, lilac, beige... or even white!

What women's shoes to choose for a winter wedding?

Women's Ballet Pumps Alora 2 Melvin & Hamilton

In winter, your attire will inevitably be less light than for a summer wedding. Therefore, most will opt for elegant trousers or a dress with tights. Same thing for the shoes, they will be closed, but at the same time fine, feminine and elegant. Avoid thick rubber soles and go for leather soles. You can't go wrong with leather loafers, lace-up shoes, such as derbies or oxfords. Even if the colours are usually less bright in winter, you can still brighten up a dark outfit with a pair of metallic or colorful shoes.

02 What are the most comfortable shoes for men to wear to a wedding?

So gentleman, are you looking for the ideal shoes to wear with your suit? Are you looking for a full classic look? Whether you are going for a smoking or a casual wedding look, you will be able to find the perfect shoe in our collection!

What men's shoes to choose for a chic wedding and ceremony?

Men's Monks Lewis 52 Melvin & Hamilton

Firstly, what options do you have for an ultra-chic look? We recommend wearing patent leather shoes or plain-coloured street shoes, such as leather derbies, oxfords or even monks. Make sure you wear the right colour shoes that perfectly match your outfit.

As you can see, our selection of classic shoes is perfect for completing your outfit for formal occasions. However, our classic leather shoes can also be worn super smart and casual with jeans or fabric trousers and a simple shirt.

What comfortable shoes to wear for a casual wedding?

Men's loafers Santo 1 Melvin & Hamilton

Have you decided to go for a more casual look while still keeping the chic side? We recommend wearing shoes that have a slightly more casual accent as you don't want to go for a flashy coloured look but sure, the shoe type can change. What about wearing coloured loafers with a rolled up chino and a shirt? This look is more a guest look for an event in the middle of the summer when there is no dress code. You can also wear tassel loafers to make your style a little less formal.
And if you're attending a bohemian wedding or a beach wedding, choose comfortable suede leather mules, which will go perfectly with light linen pants.

Is it appropriate to wear sneakers to a wedding?

Men's Sneakers Harvey 36 Melvin & Hamilton

In recent years, we are noticing more and more weddings where sneakers are worn! Even the groom sometimes wears white sneakers with his suit to give it a casual yet elegant look. However, if you choose leather sneakers, make sure they are clean and consistent with the formal occasion of a wedding.
