White lace high heels might not be the most versatile shoes out there, but no one can deny that they're a perfect fit for a bride on her wedding night. With a traditionally feminine look and a bit of vintage feel to them, lace shoes can look like an absolute dream alongside a wedding gown. They can add a bit of glamour and texture, especially underneath a gown that is satin, silk, or crepe.

Finding the perfect pair, however, means finding something that matches your gown—for example, if your gown is lace, you might not want to get lace shoes unless you can be sure the pattern and design are exactly the same. Comfort is always a nice plus with wedding shoes since you'll be wearing and standing in them for hours on end, which is why you might want to consider lace flats or even sneakers, too!

Whether you want something traditional and ultra-feminine, or something chic and stylish, you'll find it among the 21 pretty lace wedding shoes below.

  • Should you wear lace wedding shoes with a lace wedding dress?

    You can go the all-lace route if you want, but if you do, you should try matching the lace of your shoes to the lace of your dress. This might mean getting custom-made shoes.

  • Are lace shoes comfortable?

    The comfort level of your lace shoes really depends on the type of shoe it is and what it's made of. For example, lace sneakers are always going to be a more comfortable option compared to lace stilettos.

  • Are lace shoes expensive?

    Since white lace shoes are usually marketed as bridal shoes, they might be a little bit pricier. But it's still possible to find affordable lace heels, flats, and sneakers with a bit of digging.
