a) Crazy About Copper
These trend-forward pumps were hand-picked by a designer from Milwaukee-based Mint & Lovely Studios for a stylish copper-themed photoshoot. Designed by shoe icon Christian Louboutin, these stunners are covered in nude mesh and embellished with eye-catching crystals that cascade from toe to heel.

b) Flat-Out Fancy
Flats should never be overlooked as a beautiful and practical option for the contemporary bride. Taylor Keuler searched high and low for flats with that special wow factor before landing on this crystallized pair by Bella Belle for her June 2017 wedding in Wausau.

c) Head over Heels
Carolyn Sandvick Ship had an extra spring in her step at her June 2017 nuptials in Milwaukee, thanks to these Diane Von Furstenberg champagne-gold heels. With a Grecian-style design, the shoes “struck the perfect balance between chic elegance and modern romance,” says Ship.

d) Good for the Sole
Bride Nicole Shinners had no intention of walking in heels all day. Instead, she strolled down the aisle in comfort and style, sporting Kate Spade Keds at her July 2017 Wausau wedding. The white hue and abundance of glitter added traditional elements to her unconventional style.

e) Something Blue
Step out in these softly hued pumps from Big Tree Shoes for a “something blue” that’s never looked so chic. This pair, chosen for a styled shoot by Meghan Lee Harris, has a sleek finish for a perfectly polished look. Throw in a statement bow, and these heels are feminine, fun and sophisticated all at once.

f) Pretty in Pumps
Bride Stephanie Huttner chose these Badgley Mischka pumps to add a touch of glamour to her whimsical bohemian dress. The shoes reminded Huttner of her chic grandmother, whom she honored at her October 2016 ceremony at her grandmother’s house in Williams Bay.

g) All That Glitters
No stranger to the wedding scene, bridal stylist Marissa Hoffmann chose these Mary Jane-style Kate Spade pumps for her own May 2017 nuptials in Green Lake, knowing they could transform her simple gown into a unique bridal look. With delicate ankle straps and a plethora of glitter, these shoes beg for the dance floor.
