11 comfortable wedding-guest shoes that’ll have you ‘dancing till dawn’ — from $25

wedding shoes
Gorgeous wedding shoes that you can walk and dance in comfortably — and almost all are on sale! (Amazon)

It's officially wedding season! If you're attending a spring wedding — or saying your own "I do" — the time is now to find the perfect pair of wedding shoes. But let's face it: wedding shoes have developed a reputation over the years as glorified torture devices. A stiff stiletto can make walking down the aisle a painful proposition, and strappy sandals that dig into your toes are less wedded bliss and more wedded blister. But what if you want to radiate head-turning style and still be able to kick up your heels 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 — and most are even on sale.
