Ever since we saw the 1991 remake of Father of the Bride — and subsequently re-watched it dozens of times — we've been obsessed with the concept of bridal sneakers. Not to spoil anything for you, but at the end of the movie, the bride lifts her dress to reveal that under all the silk and tulle, she's wearing a pair of white sneakers. And by the way, that choice is not just for the movies: real-life bride Serena Williams also wore athletic kicks at her 2017 wedding to Alexis Ohanian.
What a genius idea is that? Not only do we love an unexpected twist on a bridal getup, but we adore anything that will let us stay on the dance floor till the very last song. And, avoiding back pain and blisters is always good, too.
But, the unexpected style choice goes beyond practical matters. It's also about fashion, and Kate Spade's line of bridal sneakers for Keds may convince you to ditch the wedding-day heels this very moment. The adorable shoes are just as festive as you'd want them to be, and come trimmed with dainty details like flowers, pearls, and crystals. Don't worry, there's plenty of glitter too.
Take note: these kicks top off at $120, so they'd also make a great gift for everyone in the bridal party. Your 'maids would be so relieved to change into these after the ceremony, and they'd also look adorable wearing them as you take your vows. And, one more thing: you can totally bring these along for your honeymoon. After all, who wants to be traipsing through the cobblestone streets of Paris or Florence in heels?
Take a peek at the styles below, and prepare to get even more psyched for your walk down the aisle.
