So what if you want to radiate head-turning style on the big day and still be able kick up your heels all night without kicking them off? We found 12 pairs of the most comfortable wedding shoes for the bride, her bridesmaids and even the mother of the bride. Each pair of heels, wedges and flats marries form and function at a price that'll warm your heart — and most are on sale.
