Feather puff nude flats

Worried that wearing flat wedding shoes will make you feel less wedding-ready? We've found 28 designs beautiful enough to convert even the most dedicated lover of heels.

These are the best flat wedding shoes to give you confidence, style - and comfort! Maybe you just don't do heels; perhaps you're planning to swap to flats for the evening party. However you plan to bring them into your wedding look, these are the flat shoes to know about, from affordable high street brands to let's-splash-out designer styles.

Flats work with all kind of looks, whether we're talking boho sandals for a destination wedding or sparkly ballerinas for a winter wedding. On the practical side, as with all wedding shoes, flats do still need to be broken in ahead of the big day. A simple way to do this is to wear them around the house with thick socks - oh, the glamour - to give them some all-important stretch.

Once you've chosen your shoes, make sure you take them along to a wedding dress fitting, to check how they work with the length - tripping over your hem all day is never a good look. If you're wearing a longer style or a train with heels during the day, your seamstress may be able to 'bustle' the gown to make it easier to walk in your wedding flats later on.

And don't forget to weather- and stain-proof your wedding shoes using a protector spray.

With the practicalities taken care of, now let's get to the pretty! Here are the most gorgeous flat wedding shoes that won't leave you hobbling home at the end of the night.
