After you’re done picking up your outfits for the wedding season ahead, shopping for accessories needs to be next mission to you need to tick off your checklist. Whether you’re the bride or a part of the bridal crew, finding the right pair of shoes for each ceremony is crucial. Between running errands for your best mate who is getting married and endless nights of dancing, weddings can take a toll on your feet, especially if your festive footwear is the kind that will leave you with blisters or worse, a twisted ankle.

The smart way to survive a wedding is knowing when to alternate between towering stilettos, block heels and flats. If you’re hesitant about wearing strappy sandals and will have to be on your feet for longer than four hours, it’s best to avoid them because the day is only going to end in discomfort. For smaller events like the mehendi or haldi ceremony, go traditional with a pair of embroidered juttis. If you don’t have much of a role to play during the pheras, give your soles some time to recover in a pair of dressy slides. Save the stilettos for the reception, and opt for chunky heels to dance at the sangeet.

Given that most wedding wear is bound to be embellished or bear a touch of metallic hues, avoid recycling evening shoes from your party wardrobe for the occasion. A pair of shoes in gold and one in silver are a must have in your arsenal. You can also look at rose gold, pale pinks and glitter shoes for the wedding season. If you really want to take things up a notch and have your Cinderella moment, go for a pair of shocking pink satin slides or something with pearl detailing.

From sensible block heels to dangerously tall strappy ones, scroll through our edit of must-have shoes for the wedding season.
