The complementing piece to any decadent wedding dress (or sleek pantsuit, if that's more of your thing): the shoes! They're basically your glass slipper, Cinderella. You need to be able to stand all day, pose for family photos and dance the night away in those bad boys. If you're dropping as much money on the shoes as you are on your dress, you'll want something that you'll be able to wear more than just one day for ten hours. And there's only so many satin peep-toe pumps you can look through without going crazy.
Here are some alternative kicks that'll take you from the wedding day and beyond.
