Your big day is coming up, huh? Well, congrats! We wish you the best of luck. We also wish that your feet don’t hurt like hell and you don’t end up with seventeen blisters because your shoes were too tight.

While we’re on the subject of shoes, have you ever considered rocking a pair of Js for your wedding day? Or any sneakers for that matter? Now, we know it sounds a bit controversial and all, but hear us out – you don’t have to wear them at all times. You can still look like a pretty princess while taking pictures and whatnot, but when it’s time to hit the dance floor – comfortable shoes must take over.

And, if you’re still on the fence about it, don’t worry, we understand. However, we’ll still try to show you why we feel like wearing sneakers on your wedding day is a good idea!

1. They’re Super-Comfortable


Say it with us – no more blisters! There is nothing more annoying than having to try and apply band-aids to your heel and toes while wearing a puffy gown. It’s just not a good time.

With sneakers, on the other hand, you can dance all night without any pain whatsoever. In fact, you might even forget that you’re wearing them because they’re just that comfortable! And we all know that dancing is a big part of weddings. So, if you want to be able to fully enjoy your big day and not spend it sitting in your chair – get your trainers on!

2. They’re Also Stylish

Just because sneakers are comfortable doesn’t mean they have to be boring! You can find some pretty amazing and stylish sneakers out there these days. We’re talking about all-white ones, glittery ones, sequined ones, and even ones with Swarovski crystals if that’s your jam! So, if you want your wedding day shoes to make a statement – opt for some stylish but comfortable footwear.

3. You Can Still Look Like A Princess

This is probably the biggest concern when it comes to wearing sneakers on your big day – people think you’re not going to look like a “proper” bride. Well, we hate to break it to you, but no one is going to be looking at your shoes! Seriously, they’ll be too busy staring at your dress (or tux), your face, and maybe even your drunk aunt. So, please, don’t even worry about not looking like a princess! You totally will!

4. They’re More Affordable Than High Heels


Let’s be real here – wedding shoes are not cheap. Even the most basic pair of heels can cost upwards of $200! And, if you want something a bit fancier, you’re looking at spending even more money. Possibly more than four digits.

With sneakers, however, you can easily find a pair for under or around $100. In fact, you can probably even find a decent pair for under $50! So, if you’re on a budget – trainers are definitely the way to go.

5. You Can Dance All Night In Them

This is probably the most important reason to wear sneakers on your wedding day – they will allow you to dance all night without any pain! We all know that dancing is a big part of weddings and, let’s be honest, it’s also a lot of fun. But, it’s not so fun when your feet are killing you.

With sneakers, however, you can dance the night away without any pain whatsoever! So, if you want to be able to fully enjoy your big day and throw it down on the dancefloor – go with sneakers.

6. No One Will Be Able To See Them Anyway

Another big concern people have about wearing sneakers on their wedding day is that everyone will be able to see them. However, this is usually not the case. Unless you’re wearing a really short dress/skirt or your pants are super tight – chances are no one will even notice that you’re wearing sneakers. They’ll think you’re wearing flats from

7. You Will Actually Wear Then Again


Let’s be honest – how often do you actually wear your wedding shoes after the big day? Probably not that often. In fact, they might even end up sitting in the back of your closet collecting dust.

With sneakers, however, you can actually wear them again! Whether you want to wear them to the grocery store or on a casual date – you can do it! Ditch the high heels. There’s a really good chance you’ll never set your foot inside of them again.

8. You’ll Be The “One” With Sneakers On Your Wedding Day

If you really want to stand out from the crowd on your wedding day – why not be the one in Nikes? It’s definitely something different and it will make people remember the day you got hitched! Plus, it’s a great way to show off your personality and have the other brides talk about you for years to come.

9. They Go With Everything

Another great thing about sneakers is that they pretty much go with everything. Whether you’re wearing a dress, a suit, or even just jeans – they’ll look great! So, if you’re on a mission to find a versatile shoe to wear on your wedding day – go with some trainers.

10. You Can Find Them In Any Colour


When it comes to wedding shoes, the options are usually pretty limited. They come in white, champagne, beige and that’s about it. However, with sneakers – the sky is the limit! You can find them in any color imaginable which means you’re sure to find a pair that goes perfect with your outfit. So, if you’re on the hunt for the perfect finishing touch to your wedding day look – go with a pair of Js!


As you can see, there are plenty of reasons to wear sneakers on your wedding day. So, if you’re looking for a comfy, affordable, and stylish shoe option – lace up! You won’t regret it.
