They say fashion has a cycle and tends to repeat itself, and thank goodness for that because guess what… The 1970’s block heel is back and we really hope it’s here to stay.
Even though the trend came back with the classic ankle boot, it has now become super popular with wedding shoes, be it high or low, which is great news for brides.
They are comfy, easy to walk in, and so stylish… So we have put together the ultimate list of wedding block heels that include some wedding-worthy and wedding-wacky styles that will make choosing your wedding shoes even harder.
Wedding White Block Heels
This is the most classic and popular style of block heel which takes the barely-there sandal and makes it bolder and dare we say it, better. Wedding heels don’t have to be encrusted in diamonds and jewels to be special and this pair from Littlewoods is a great example of that.
White heels look so beautiful with floral detail on them, just like these stunning sandals from Dune. Wearing these as your wedding shoes could be a great way to incorporate your theme for a spring wedding, especially if your girls are wearing floral bridesmaid dresses.
Alternative wedding dresses will look amazing with these block boot heels from New Look. They are a real statement and would look amazing with a tea-length dress or one which comes up at the front. Not showing these off to your guests would be a true crime of fashion in our eyes.
Spice up your life with Debenhams block heels. The colour is enhanced with a sleek metallic glaze which is to-die-for. If you’re having a winter wedding and want your wedding shoes to reflect your theme, then these could definitely be a strong contender.
Here comes double the trouble… Dune have not only provided the world of bridal with an embroidered block heel design in white, but they have also given us the exact same option in blush pink. How will you ever choose? We suggest the white by day, and pink by night, you can’t go wrong with that.
Naturally Nude Block Heels
This block heel design by Dune really got our tongues wagging here at hitched HQ. The style is super pretty. We love the pointed toe, but more importantly – the metallic crocodile block heel is a major selling point (and our new obsession).
If you want a fun and vintage-style look on your wedding day, one of these two gorgeous block heels from Phase Eight could be perfect for you. Both colours are super neutral, and look amazing with the knot detail and pretty ankle strap. The platform will give you height and make your legs look amazing if you’re wearing a short wedding dress.
Modern brides will keel over for this River Island stunner. The clear block heel is a super fresh trend that has just hit 2016 and can bring an amazing contemporary twist to your wedding day look. The thin double straps on the ankle and toe of the show are pretty and feminine, what more could a bride want?
We love these Debenhams shoes to go with a champagne wedding dress. The light warmth in tone is the perfect companion for a dress which has a richer colour to it as it brightens the outfit, whilst still being really complementary. The peep-toe is a cute addition too.
Another daring duo… We seriously can’t keep up with all the choices that Dune is giving us. Just when we thought nude was the perfect block heel colour; they had to throw in a matching grey design to confuse us. How could you ever choose between this pair? The stunning heel detail is perfect for a glamorous wedding, no matter which colour you pick.
Rose Gold Block Heels
If you live on planet earth, you will know that rose gold is the biggest trend of 2016 and it’s infecting everyone, including us here at hitched. One reason why we love rose gold so much is purely because of this gorgeous pair of block heels from Miss Selfridge. Could you say no to them? We most certainly couldn’t!
These crossover block heels from Office will bring out every little bit of beauty in your rose gold engagement ring – which is obviously super important. We strongly recommend brides who are wearing a boho style wedding dress to try these; they would really finish off the look exquisitely.
Shine bright on your wedding day with these chunky yet funky New Look block heels. We love the strappy style and metallic gloss texture. Your guests will practically be able to see themselves in these stunning shoes.
Office have created this rose gold design in the simple style of the common barely-there sandal, with a chunkier heel. We love the face that they have kept the height, as most block heels tend to be lower than stilettos. If you’re a bride who needs sky-high shoes in your life, we would totally recommend these.
Bright and Bold Block Heels
Say hello to our little friend, it’s this fabulously floral style from Dune. If you’re having a summer wedding with lots of pink flowers, what reason could you possibly have, not to rock these too? The chunky ankle strap and simple silhouette of the shoe is exactly what it needs to lead with its pattern.
Fashion-obsessed brides are going to fall in love with these grey suede block heels from Miss Selfridge. The tassels are the perfect shoe accessory to accompany with a bohemian wedding dress. Unleash your inner boho and plan your whole festival themed wedding around these show-stopping shoes.
This colour is seriously striking. Such a deep purple, along with the black and grey jewel detail makes this design by Moda In Pelle perfect to wear with a gothic wedding dress. The velvet texture and chunky heel give the heels character and will have you sure to stand out from the crowd.
These peach block heels from Monsoon have a timeless suede texture and have been made in the softest shade of peach possible. We just adore them. Brides who are looking for a seriously feminine wedding day look and summer bridesmaid dresses should definitely consider these as their chosen wedding shoes.
Leopard print? On your wedding day? Really?
Yes, yes, and yes again. We can’t even express how much we are in of these dazzling block heels as wedding shoes. What an amazing way to bring your wedding dress to life, and even if you didn’t want to wear these unusual wedding shoes for the ceremony, there is nothing stopping you from dancing all night long in these Moda In Pelle heels.
New Look have taken the block heel style by a storm with this modern design. We never thought that we’d find a pair of stunning heels that were futuristic and feminine all at the same time. These heels will rock your partner’s world and would look picture-perfect with a simple wedding dress.
Prepare your eyes for a seriously daring design from Office. Animal prints are always in fashion and always make a statement. This style is flawless and we are obsessed with the thick double strap addition. This print needs an unusual wedding dress to match its drama and presence. If you end up with these shoes for your wedding, make sure to send us some gorgeous pictures!
No one will be able to take their eyes off of your feet if you’re wearing these killer heels from River Island. The colour is striking and bold, just like your wedding look should be. These would be the perfect way to complement some orange wedding flowers and an all-round spring wedding. We can see it now…
If someone like Alexa Chung or Fearne Cotton is your style guru, then we think we may have just found your perfect wedding shoes. Thank god we have TK Maxx in our lives! The stone colour is perfect for so many wedding dress shades and the funky striped heel really confirmed it for us that these are some of the coolest block heels out there.
Rock a red shoe look with these pointed, snakeskin block heels from River Island. Vintage brides will look amazing in these heels with a quirky dress and retro wedding makeup. This look could go down in history as one of the funkiest bridal styles.
Glittery and Glamorous Block Heels
Office have taken a suede court shoe and added an incredibly glam, round block heel which has the perfect detail to it. The marble texture and subtle glitter is all this shoe needs to get your guests talking. The colour is gorgeous and would look stunning next to your girls if you dress them in sparkly bridesmaid dresses.
Marks & Spencers have a block heel which is well worth shouting about. This glitzy shoe is everything a traditional bride could wish for and more and we love the innocence of it. The round toe and cute strap are really girly and would look stunning with some sparkly accessories and gold wedding flowers.
Black-tie themed weddings are increasingly popular, especially for winter weddings, and what better way to strut your stuff to your romantic first dance song than in these swanky shoes from Matalan. The plain body of the shoe is completely brought to life with a dazzling glitter heel and you don’t even have to wear a black wedding dress to pull these off – a silver or super sparkly wedding dress would also look amazing.
Not all brides dream of aching feet and possible blisters on their wedding day, and we don’t blame them. One way to steer away from this chance of discomfort is to opt for a pair of gorgeous wedding flats, and they don’t come much more gorgeous than this shoe from New Look. The sparkly colour and cute ankle strap is perfect for a relaxed but glamorous look.
If you are wearing a silver wedding dress, there is only one shoe option. It has to be these thin-strap sandals from Next. It is a really simple design with the perfect amount of sophisticated detailing to be wedding-worthy. They are an elegant design that deserves to be worn with pride… And some expensive jewellery!
Move aside, there’s a new sparkly shoe in town and she is a beauty! We can always count on Very to deliver the goods and this purple block heel design is insanely pretty. If you are a shoe-obsessed bride who wants to make a statement with her heel choice, then we can’t think of any better shimmering style for you to rock on your wedding day.
Shiny Metallic Block Heels
All hail Debenhams and their beautiful shoes. This strappy block heel would be a stunning bridal look if it were graced with a Grecian wedding dress and a braided wedding hair style. We love the idea of this look as it’s super feminine and pretty – just how we like it.
Our favourite Dune block heels are back again, but this time, we’ve got them in gold. It’s like all of our Christmases have come at once. We are seriously in love with this design and if you don’t particularly want gold wedding shoes yourself, why not sport the white version and then have your bridesmaids in the gold – that way you are all connected through our favourite thing, shoes!
Metallic and marvellous… There are no words better to describe these Marks & Spencers block heels. We can’t decide if we want to wear them, or just buy them and stare at how pretty they are. Having a winter wedding? If so, these are the heels for you.
Brides who want to embrace runway fashion styles and the latest trends will love these New Look heels. They are so contemporary and cutting edge, we just love them. We would pair these with a super cool tailored wedding suit and a modern wedding bouquet alternative.
Topshop are always re-writing history and bringing back classic fashion trends and making them take over our wardrobes, so when we saw how cutting-edge these block heels were, we were not one bit surprised. These disco-diva statement heels are perfect for brides who are planning on embracing a retro look.
