There's the obvious reason to wear blue wedding shoes: it's an easy way to take care of your 'something blue', if you're following that tradition. But this isn't the only reason we love the colour for bridal shoes.
Blue pairs beautifully with wedding dresses of all shades of pale. If you want to create a stylish contrast, go for cobalt or navy; for added prettiness, it's a sky or dusty blue; and for a cool colour pop, choose teal or aquamarine. What's more, blue is universally pleasing - a survey actually found that it's the world's most popular colour!
To help you find the perfect wedding shoes to suit your style, we've rounded up our favourite blue wedding shoes. These include a range of shades, styles and heel heights - worry not, flat-shoe-lovers, we have you covered, too - and different budgets. Some of them are embellished; others are minimalist; all of them are gorgeous.

1. Amora Mid Pump - £550, Sophia Webster
If you're looking for wedding shoes that combine glamour with alternative cool, Sophia Webster is the designer to know - just take this Amora mid pump. The notice-me bejewelled detailing is softened by the pretty ice-blue and metallic silver colour.
2. Bluebell Bridal Shoes - £745, Emmy London
Inspired by Cinderella, Emmy London's Bluebell t-bar really does look like something out of a fairy tale. The hand-beaded Swarovski crystal embroidery is beautifully done - what we particularly love about Emmy London is that they lacquer their shoe embellishments to minimise the chance of them catching on your dress.
3. Rockstud Ankle Strap Sandal - £680, Valentino
Valentino's Rockstud collection is ideal for adding edge to your bridal look. While the styles are available in multiple colours, the dusty blue is a firm favourite - the romantic shade contrasts perfectly with those tough-girl studs.
4. Block Heel Strappy Leather Sandals - £85, & Other Stories
These & Other Stories beauties have an on-trend square toe, for extra fashion points. If you're opting for a shorter style dress the criss-cross straps will look gorgeous going up your legs.
5. Stiletto Heel Court Shoes - £19.50, Marks & Spencer
Marks & Spencer has upped its shoe game recently, with styles from the high street stalwart making an appearance on many a fashion influencer's grid.

7. Velalith Sandals - £70, Aldo
Aldo are one of our go-to brands for chic yet won't-break-the-bank going-out shoes - and these bright blue mules are a perfect example. The height is ideal if you're after a heel that isn't sky high.
8. Pump in Taormina Lace - £645, Dolce & Gabbana

We love finding a high street shoe that looks designer - and with this River Island heel, we've really hit the jackpot. The shape and colour are simply stunning.

24. Blue Double Bow 110 Crystal Pumps - £850, Mach & Mach
If you appreciate an ankle wrap, check out the 110 crystal pumps by Mach & Mach. The style suggests a traditional shoe, but the rhinestone bow and aquamarine blue give the look a contemporary edge.
