Comfortable Wedding Shoes From Charlotte Mills
We're kicking off this comfy wedding shoes edit with a brand famed for their stylish wedding heels - yes, we're talking about Charlotte Mills. Charlotte Mills wedding shoes are every bit comfortable as they are stylish, and we know because we've tested out some of their most popular styles.
Before we get into the specifics, it's also worth noting that of all the comfortable wedding shoes in the UK we tried, Charlotte Mills took the crown for the best packaging. From the cute note and beautiful boxes, to the care info and special shoe bag, we were seriously impressed. .

1. Henri Pearl Block Heels With Criss-Cross Strap - £310
Love the pearl wedding trend and want to incorporate it into a pair of comfortable wedding shoes? If that sounds like you, we recommend considering the Henri heels.
These shoes have received an average or 4.91/5 across 22 reviews with many praising their comfort and wearability.
Comfort Features: Soft leather fabric, wide fit option and supportive strap.
Expert Take: Our Hitched tester adored these heels and said, "I have wide feet and always struggle to find wide fit shoes that are trendy at the same time. The wide fit Henri shoes were so comfortable to wear and fit extremely true to size. The midi heel was the perfect height for an all-day wear but I love the fact that they also come in a higher heel if you prefer some additional height. "
2. Kali Pearl Block Wedding Heels - 260
For a more glamorous look, the Kali heels are calling your name. Also available in wide fit, these sparkly shoes are a modern nearlywed's dream.
Charlotte Mills shoes can also take on more than one look, as the brand sell a range of ankle straps which can be swapped out.
Comfort Features: Chunky block heel and platform. Criss-cross strap adds sturdy support.
Expert Take: The Hitched tester who wore these heels didn't want to take them off and said, "I would never usually wear a heel as high as the Kali Pearl heels, but the platform made it possible. The wide straps across the front added so much additional support compared to similar styles I've seen and the block heel made walking feel safe and sturdy."
3. Karolina Wedding Trainers with Sparkly Detail - £130
Heels are stunning, but so are wedding trainers and the Karolina trainers from Charlotte Mills are some of the prettiest we've seen.
Anyone on the hunt for comfortable wedding shoes should seriously consider a cool pair of trainers - what could possibly be comfier?
Comfort Features: Soft soles, flat trainer style and lace up detail.
Expert Take: Reviews rave about how comfortable these trainers are, and customers love the fact that they are lace up to cater to those with wider feet. If you are in-between sizes, we'd recommend sizing up in these for an extra comfortable fit.
Comfortable Wedding Shoes From Rainbow Club
Another household name when it comes to comfortable wedding shoes in the UK is Rainbow Club.
They are one of the first brands that come to mind for wedding footwear, and our Hitched testers were delighted when they felt how comfortable their wedding shoes were to wear.
What's even more exciting about Rainbow Club wedding shoes is the fact that many of the styles can be dyed! We tested styles in their original ivory, pastel pink and champagne and all were beautiful in their own right.
Best For: Coloured wedding shoes and timeless styles.
Sizing: UK 3 - UK 8
Wide Fit: No
Delivery: Free UK delivery for orders over £150. Standard, express and international delivery available to.
4. Mimi Low Wedding Shoes With Ribbon Tie - £55
The organza strap can be concentrated around the ankle or tied up the leg for a more playful look. These shoes aren't a dyeable style but take it from us - the classic ivory colour suits them perfectly.
The shoes fit true to size and scored 4.9/5 across 39 reviews with many celebrating what comfortable wedding shoes they are.
Comfort Features: Low stiletto heel and adjustable ankle strap.
Expert Take: "I much prefer a chunky heel for stability," says our Hitched reviewer, "So I was so pleasantly surprised by how sturdy I felt walking in the Mimi courts. The organza strap was perfect for making my ankle feel secure and the sole is padded throughout which felt amazing as I walked in them."
5. Maya Pearl Wedding Shoes With Block Heel - £110
For a super stylish look, consider the Maya heel. The style looks amazing in ivory, but we tested them out in a Barbie-like pink shade and boy were we impressed.
The fact that you can dye a show as pretty as this any colour you like is such a bonus, and if you can't decide which colour you'd like, you can order swatches from Rainbow Club before choosing. Perhaps you'll want pink like us, or go for sumptuous and comfortable navy wedding shoes from this UK brand.
These heels have been given a 4.9/5 average across 51 reviews - the scores speak for themselves.
Comfort Features: Padded sole, block heel and ankle strap.
Expert Take: The Maya shoes went down a treat with our team of experts. One said, "I have wide feet and thought I wouldn't be able to wear any of the Rainbow Club styles, but I found that by sizing up one full size, the Maya heels fitted perfectly.
"I usually avoid heels as high as this, but the long court front and supportive ankle strap meant I walked in these with ease. The padded sole also really helps and is a feature that, for me, would add hours of wear."
Though sizing up most definitely worked for our expert, the 2024 Rainbow Club Collection launches soon and includes a wide fit version of this shoe called Hannah!
6. Florence Pearl Strappy Low Bridal Heels - £99
If a barely there sandal is more your cup of tea, the Florence sandals could be the perfect pick for you.
Barely there sandals are notorious for having really uncomfortable, thin straps that press on the toes, which is why we had to include these heels in the edit. The padded strap and sole combined make for such a comfortable fit and a lower heel adds to their wearability.
Comfort Features: Padded sole, padded strap, low block heel and ankle strap.
Expert Take: When testing these comfortable wedding shoes out, our team said, "I much prefer a lower block heel so the Florence heels were right up my street. As well as having a perfect heel height, the padded sole put less pressure on the soles of my feet.
"The extra strap around the base of the ankle makes you feel so secure in these shoes and I loved the champagne dyed colour they came in - perfect for warmer skin tones."
Comfortable Wedding Shoes From Bella Belle
When looking for the most comfortable wedding shoes in the UK, it's important to not disregard international brands who ship to the UK, because if you did that, you wouldn't get to see the excellent options at Bella Belle.
This US-based brand are known for their uber romantic occasion shoes with both bridal and non-bridal styles on offer. Their wedding edit is gorgeous, and we tested a few of their most comfortable wedding shoes in our office, but we'd encourage you to be open to their non-wedding styles as well.
They are so pretty and perfect for a more alternative comfy bridal shoe.
Best For: Beautifully crafted wedding shoes in romantic designs.
Sizing: UK 2.5 - UK 8.5
Wide Fit: No
Delivery: Free express shipping to UK and international addresses in 3 - 10 days.
7. Eliza Lavender Butterfly Embroidered Heels - £425
The main reason we want nearlyweds to consider Bella Belle's non-wedding collection is these purple Eliza shoes - they may not be ivory and super wedding-y, but that's kind of what we love most about them.
The embroidery on the front of the show is just exquisite and looks even more beautiful in person - pictures really don't come close.
The butterfly theme is super romantic, as is the floral embroidery. If you're having a purple or lilac colour scheme, you may have just found your shoes.
Reviewers love how comfortable these wedding shoes are, with one customer saying they wore them all night and didn't feel sore or blistered at all.
Comfort Features: Block heel and double ankle strap.
Expert Take: "These may just be the most beautiful wedding shoes I have ever tried on," says our Hitched reviewer.
"The design is unique and like nothing I've seen before, but the biggest surprise of all is that they are comfortable as well. I have narrow feet and often struggle to find styles that cater for that. These were perfect and the heel height felt perfect for an all-day wear that still feels fancy."
For a wider fit, we'd recommend sizing up.
8. Kayla Sling Back Bow Beaded Wedding Shoes - £370
For a similar style but with a more traditional feel, the pointed Kayla heels are an ideal choice.
They still have gorgeous details - just look at that beaded bow - and they actually come in an entire collection. If you love the bow but prefer a taller heel, the Kenzie is a four inch alternative, and if you want something lower, the Kendra wedding flats are equally as pretty.
Comfort Features: Block heel, double ankle strap and multiple height options.
Expert Take: "I love a versatile look," says our Hitched expert, "So any shoe that gives me multiple styles is a winner in my eyes. The Kayla heels have a removable ankle strap so you can wear them as slingbacks as well. As well as being comfortable - we love a three inch block heel - you also get two styles in one. Winning!"
9. Bow Mule Wedding Shoes With Micro Heel - £345
The Brooke heel is a complete celebration of pearls, with pearls lining the front of the court shoe and running all the way around that sweet bow detail.
As well as the pearls, there's a lot to love here. The mule design is really on trend and would look amazing with a registry office wedding dress. The heel height is also really on trend - the kitten heel is back and our feet are grateful for it.
Comfort Features: Low kitten heel and elasticated mule strap.
Expert Take: "I'm a big fan of mules, but the peep-toe ones always give me blisters," explains our Hitched tester.
"Because of this, I love to see court shoe mules as they take care of your toes but still give you that really chic look. I also really like that the bow strap has a small piece of elastic which helps to ensure a really snug fit."
Comfortable Wedding Shoes From Grace Loves Lace
We all know Grace Loves Lace as an incredible fashion house for lace wedding dresses with a bohemian feel, but did you know they also sell comfortable wedding shoes as well?
The team of designers have created a small collection of wedding heels and trainers which sing from the same hymn sheet as their dresses. Their wedding dress style is effortlessly luxurious with an emphasis on using high quality materials and their shoe collection is no different.
Best For: A classic bridal feel.
Sizing: UK 2 - UK 8
Wide Fit: No
Delivery: Shipping costs dependent on delivery. Delivery time varies between 3 - 14 business days depending on where you are shipping to. International delivery available.
10. Dita Barely There Heeled Wedding Sandals - £210
Nearlyweds after a classic wedding heel will love the Dita heels. Available in both sand and white, you can choose between wedding-worthy white and a more neutral tone depending on the look you are going for.
Comfort Features: Soft leather fabric and adjustable ankle strap.
Expert Take: Our Hitched reviewer loves a high heel and said, "As someone who feels confident in high heels, the Dita scores highly for me. They are considerably more comfortable than other heels of this height and the quality of the materials was brilliant."
11. Simple White Leather Wedding Trainers - £90
If you love the idea of wearing wedding flats on your special day but want something with less sparkle and glitz than the Charlotte Mills ones, these chic trainers are a great alternative.
They are simple in design but still feel formal because of the high-quality leather used to make them.
Comfort Features: Soft leather, rubber sole and tie laces.
Expert Take: Grace Loves Lace call these 'the world's most comfortable wedding shoes' - it's a pretty big claim, but we reckon they could be right!
Comfortable Wedding Shoes From Dune
Dune are high street heroes when it comes to formal shoes, so it comes as no surprise at all to see them take their place on this edit.
They have a dedicated wedding shoes section on their website, but many of their occasion heels are just as wedding-worthy in our opinion.
Their wedding heels don't come in wide fit sizes, but they have a number of sparkly shoes in wide fit that you could definitely wear at your wedding if you need wider styles.
Best For: High quality wedding shoes at high street prices.
Sizing: UK 3 - UK 8
Wide Fit: Yes - not available for all styles.
Delivery: Free delivery on orders over £120. Standard delivery, next working day, click and collect and pick up options available.
12. Mirabella Cross Over Midi Wedding Heels - £125
If you want a classic wedding shoe, the Mirabella cross over heels are an excellent option, and totally reasonable at £125.
The cross over strap adds extra support for a barely-there sandal and the ankle strap reinforces support for you as you walk.
Reviewers love these heels and praise the quality and style. Some suggest sizing up for an even more comfortable fit.
Comfort Features: Cross over strap and ankle reinforcement.
Expert Take: If classic comfortable wedding shoes were in the dictionary with a picture, the Mirabella is what you'd see. Having two straps adds extra support for nearlyweds wearing them and the heel (although not a midi) isn't too high.
13. Harlenes Flat Embellished Wedding Shoes with Pointed Toe - £85
The sparkles and glitter embellishments make these the perfect wedding flats to rock on your big day.
Comfort Features: Flat 2cm heel.
Expert Take: If there were ever flat wedding shoes that said 'I'm getting married today', these would be it. Pointed flats are all over catwalks right now, making these a really fashionable choice and the flat shape make them ideal for dancing and partying all day and night long.
14. Wide Fit Citrus Low Heel Wedding Shoes in Rose Gold - £85
Hands up if you love rose gold *raises both hands* - introducing the Citrus heel from Dune's wide fit collection. Remember when we said that some of their non-bridal occasion shoes were perfect for weddings - this is what we were talking about.
The sling back is making a comeback in recent years and the asymmetrical strap makes this pair really stand out.
Comfort Features: Diagonal supportive strap and low heel.
Expert Take: A slingback can often feel like it could fall off at any moment, but the asymmetrical strap that runs across the foot of these shoes ensures that doesn't happen. There is also a nice low kitten heel, making this pair of comfortable wedding shoes easy to walk in.
Comfortable Wedding Shoes From L. K. Bennett
L. K. Bennett are a go-to for occasion wear, but their comfortable wedding shoes collection is what sees them make the shortlist in this edit.
With their products, you can expect timeless designs, high quality fabrics and wardrobe staples you'll want to wear again and again, long after your wedding day.
Best For: Chic wedding heels made from high quality fabrics.
Sizing: UK 2 - UK 9
Wide Fit: No
Delivery: Free standard delivery for orders over £300. Standard, nominated day, next working day and concierge delivery options also available.
15. Eliana Metallic Crinkle Block Wedding Heels - £329
We brought you the Loeffler Randall dupes when ASOS launched theirs, but we might actually prefer these ones. They may not have the bow, but we feel like the knot and crinkle fabric are detailed enough. The Eliana crinkle heels look and feel so expensive and are well worth the investment in our opinion.
Comfort Features: Block heel and supportive knot detail.
Expert Take: The knot front comes up really high on the foot, making the support much more robust than other sandal wedding shoes. A block heel always makes for comfortable wedding shoes and these are no different. They fit true to size and have a skinny ankle strap for extra support.
16. Amanda Soft Leather Platform Wedding Heels - £329
We thought we knew what soft leather felt like until we felt the Amanda platforms for ourselves. We're not joking when we say it literally feels like your feet are getting hugged!
The knot front, like the Eliana sandals above, add that extra level of support, and the platform at the bottom mean the arch of the heel is actually much lower than the heel makes out.
Comfort Features: Platform and block heel, and supportive straps.
Expert Take: "These comfortable wedding shoes are made from the softest leather I have ever felt," says our tester.
"They are high, but the platform makes up for some of that height. The ankle strap comes up really high on the leg as well so as I walked, I didn't feel wobbly at all."
17. Zelda Court Shoes with Pearl Strap - £329
For the classic nearlywed amongst you, look to the Zelda courts for a timeless look.
There are so many details to enjoy here, yet the shoe feels simplistic and minimal at the same time.
The V-shape at the front mirrors the pointed toe and will elongate wider feet. The heel gets thicker at the bottom so those who don't normally enjoy a kitten heel will feel more supported.
Comfort Features: Wide kitten heel, elasticated asymmetric strap and low heel.
Expert Take: "Simply stunning and lovely to walk in," were the words our Hitched team used to describe these.
One reviewer added, "I love wearing court shoes, they are very much my style, but I have never seen any with this asymmetrical strap before. It's elasticated so would support wider feet as well. The heel being thick at the bottom meant I felt steady as I walked. They're just beautiful!"
18. Blakely Patent Block Heel Low Pumps - £279
You know we're here for a pair of flat shoes and the Blakely flats are one of our favourites.
They give us such chic city wedding vibes and would look amazing with a white wedding suit or pencil skirt and blazer combo.
Comfort Features: Small flat heel and soft leather.
Expert Take: These shoes are the perfect fit for someone looking for comfortable wedding shoes that aren't completely flat.
Comfortable Wedding Shoes From Harriet Wilde
If you're on the hunt for exquisitely designed comfy bridal shoes, UK brands like Harriet Wilde should be one of your stops.
Designed in London, UK, Harriet Wilde shoes offer dyeable designer wedding shoes, as well as custom-made and embellished styles. They also have ready-to-wear ones you can buy as they are.
Best For: Unique wedding shoe designs with optional embellishments.
Sizing: UK 2 - UK 6
Wide Fit: Yes
Delivery: Free UK delivery on orders over £230. Standard and next day delivery options also available. Click and collect free at the London showroom.
19. Arabella Block Heel With Custom Embellishment - From £230
We love the Arabella heels as they are, but you can add embellishments to the back of the heel to make them stand out even more. Choose from blossom old, pink cherry and many more options to add something different to your comfortable wedding shoes.
You can also choose from classic ivory, or pastel blue. Blue wedding shoes are a great way to wear something different on your special day and incorporate your something blue at the same time.
Comfort Features: Platform and block heel and criss-cross strap.
Expert Take: The criss-cross strap holds both the top of your foot and your ankle secure so walking is super comfortable. Although these are considered high heels, you are technically only walking in 3.5 inches as the platform accounts for half an inch.
20. Rosslyn Strappy Comfortable Block Heel - From £230
Another one of our favourite Harriet Wilde designs is the Rosslyn. We love a strappy wedding heel because they look amazing but from a practical point of view, they also add a lot of extra support to your foot as you walk.
Like the Arabella, these can also be customised with gorgeous embellishments and you can have them in ivory or baby pink.
Another feature we love about Harriet Wilde wedding shoes is the fact that you can add a custom message to the sole of them - how sweet is that?
Comfort Features: Platform and block heel, straps add security.
Expert Take: As well as the additional straps, the sole of Harriet Wilde shoes each have a fully padded sock under them which really adds to their comfort.
Comfortable Wedding Shoes From Freya Rose
When it comes to the most comfortable wedding shoes in the UK which are completely unique, Freya Rose is where you should go.
Their designer wedding heels have such a distinct look to them, you know instantly when you see a design of theirs. They have ready to wear and custom made options and offer their styles in a range of heel heights too.
Best For: Delicate craftsmanship and iconic shoes to treasure forever.
Sizing: UK 2 - UK 9
Wide Fit: No
Delivery: Standard shoes delivered five business days.
Made to order products delivered between 10 - 14 weeks. Embellished shoes are delivered without the embellishments attached to ensure sizing is correct. The shoes can then be returned for free to add the final details for you before being shipped out again.
21. Gigi Pearl Block Wedding Heels With Ankle Strap - £645
Disco divas will love the retro party vibes the Gigi heel gives. The pearl heel is a signature element that makes Freya Rose designs so recognisable and we love how chunky this block heel is.
Comfort Features: Chunky block heel, platform and foot strap.
Expert Take: For those who need support around their foot as opposed to their ankle, the Gigi heel is perfect. What's more, the height of the platform means the arch isn't that high at all, making them super comfortable to wear.
22. Martene Pearl Heel Midi Shoes - £495
Comfortable wedding shoes with a low heel in the UK just got upgraded - introducing the Martene midis. Martene is available in a higher heel, but we actually really like them at this height. The thick ankle and foot strap add plenty of support and the signature pearl heel will reflect light beautifully.
Comfort Features: Low midi block heel and thick supportive straps.
Expert Take: A low block heel will always make for a comfortable walk, but the thick straps holding the foot in place are what really make the difference here. This sandal also has a full back to it, adding even more support where some other sandals don't.
Comfortable Wedding Shoes From Marks & Spencer's
If budget doesn't allow you to splurge on designer wedding shoes, you'll be pleased to know that you can still get comfortable bridal shoes from UK high street retailers, and who better to give us comfy shoes than Marks and Spencer's.
They are a tried and tested reliable brand who know the importance of comfort and their shoes really channel this.
Best For: High street wedding shoes which can be worn again.
Sizing: UK 3 - UK 8
Wide Fit: No
Delivery: Free standard delivery on orders over £60. Click and collect in store also available.
23. Gold Block Heels With Ankle Strap - £55
Gold wedding shoes are something we think every nearlywed should consider, especially when designs like these gold platforms exist at such low prices.
The chunky design will add plenty of height to your wedding day look and we love the unique square toe shape.
Comfort Features: Chunky platform and block heel. Added support with a square toe.
Expert Take: Many reviews on the M&S website state that this style of heel comes up narrow for them. Our tester was obsessing over these, saying, "I could wear these all day long and the fact that they are so cool means they could be worn during plenty of non-wedding celebrations after the big day. I have a narrow foot and found them to be a perfect fit, but those with wider feet might want to consider sizing up."
24. Sparkle Court Shoes With Stiletto Heel - £35
For a super glamorous wedding day look, consider these mesh court shoes. Not just for the fact that they are only £35 - but because they are absolutely gorgeous and super comfortable.
Comfort Features: Low court heel and supportive mesh.
Expert Take: "Unlike other cut out shoes, these comfortable wedding shoes have a mesh lining so your feet feel super secure. These were a half size bigger than my normal size and the fit was ideal so I'd suggest sizing up for a really comfortable wear," says our Hitched expert.
25. Retro Silver Block Heels With Cross Over Straps - £49.50
We think these silver platforms will add a bit of rock and roll to your wedding day look and were by far one of the most comfortable wedding shoes we tried in the entire test.
The block heel isn't that high and is balanced even further by the chunky platform.
Comfort Features: Thick cross over straps, midi block heel and ankle strap.
Expert Take: "I wish more people considered a chunky heel for their wedding," says our reviewer, "They are so incredibly comfortable and as someone with bigger feet, I struggle to find shoes that fit me properly, so I was delighted when I discovered these comfy bridal shoes."
