This bride is obsessed with a pretty unique pair of designer floral kicks. We don’t know where this obsession stems from (GET IT?!?!), but we’re here to help, per usual.
I’m on a very strict budget for our wedding I was able to get my dress made and altered for around $400!
Looking for shoes now and it turns out I have very expensive taste! First floral kitten heels I fell in love with turned out to be $479!!!
Please help me find a shoe just as amazing as the one I am looking at now.
It is so hard to find floral shoes that have a small heel as these do.
The challenge with falling in love with really specific, designer shoes is nothing in the “affordable” realm will really be spot-on. As a budget-minded bride, that can be a bummer – but don’t let it be. An open mind is the key to finding a reasonably priced option.

Without knowing your size, it’s hard to throw out one-of-a-kind options. But consider doing a bit of searching on Etsy. There are some vintage options there with floral flare like these size 8s from Wild Rabbit Vintage or these vegan floral pumps from KlubKidVintage. Also, just for fun, check out these shoes from the 1960s – they’re amazing!
The term “bridal shoes” CREEPS.ME.OUT. Why, you ask? Well, let’s start with, “words that come to mind when I hear the term ‘bridal shoes’”: uncomfortable, dated, blocky, stiff, bright white, in-yo-face, blind-me satin. So yes, CREEPY. Fear not though, brides! I’m hear to tell you how to find cheap wedding shoes that don’t look cheap!
I know things have changed lately in bridal footwearland, thanks to brands like Badgley Mischka and Pour la Victoire. But letsgetserious. Many of us cannot afford the $200+ pricetag on those puppies — wedding day or not. Many of us cannot even afford the $100 to $199 range… or the $50 to $99 range. I mean, come on, this is the Broke-Ass Bride you’re reading… and if you remember, Mrs. Broke-Ass herself was tasked with having to find hot, affordable unbridal-y wedding shoes too. So you’re not alone, ladies. I’m here to tell you that brightwhitesatin “bridal shoes” are NOT your only affordable options out there. Because get this: After scouring the world wide web, I found a slew of wedding appropriate shoes that are A) Stylish B) Something we’d wear post-wedding, and C) AFFORDABLE. Check it:
And for the record, with the right dress, I would wear every single one of these pairs of shoes on my wedding day (especially those blue polka dot Nine West ones — I had a “hello, lover” moment for sure after I feasted my eyes on those babies). And you know what my bank account would be doing if I did wear one of these “under 40 dollar” pairs? It would be on it’s hands and knees thanking my fine, frugalicious broke-ass, that’s what!
So if you would be so kind, in the comment section below, please leave an “Under $40 Wedding Shoe” link to share with each other. We need to start spreading the hot, affordable, re-wearable wedding shoe love now. Broke-ass brides UNITE!
