You may know what dress you’ll be wearing down the aisle, but have you decided which shoes to slip on your feet when you say “I do?” Just like there are trends in gowns, cakes and decor, there are also trends in wedding footwear. Consider dressing up your feet with any of these unique shoe options for your upcoming autumn wedding:

Glitter
Brides everywhere are really getting on board with the glitter wedding trend, and why wouldn’t they? Having a bit of sparkle on your big day can make the event even more magical. There are so many ways you can incorporate this sparkle trend into your bridal shoes. Opt for a pair of slingbacks covered with delicate organza flowers that are lined with gold glitter, or select flats with a simple embellished bow (another shoe trend we’ll get to in a minute) sitting atop the toe of the shoe. If you want as much glitter as possible, wear a pair of metallic gold, silver or bronze pumps down the aisle to give your look some extra sparkle and shine.

Bows
I’m obsessed with bows, whether they’re on a headband in someone’s hair, on the back of a wedding dress or adorning a pair of heels. Bows are so simple, but they add a chic and romantic touch to your bridal ensemble. They’re especially popular right now. Consider combining trends by looking for a pair of shoes complete with a sparkling bow.

Lace
I mean, are you really surprised that lace is a wedding shoe trend? This delicate, feminine material has been hot in the wedding industry for years now, and it’s garnering even more attention in the world of bridal footwear. Wear a pair of ivory strappy heels complete with lace ruffles, or opt for a warmer shoe for your fall wedding, like lace oxfords or a white lace peep-toe heeled boot. Both fit the feel of the season and look simply stunning.

Brooches
Your grandmother may not be the only one rocking a brooch on your wedding day. Vintage brooches are the perfect touch to a simple wedding shoe. Imagine walking down the aisle in a pair of satin pumps with a diamond brooch detail dressing up the toes. I’m even seeing shoes with brooches attached to the backside of the heel. Having brooches on the back of your shoes will make your footwear pretty to look at from all angles.
