9 pairs of Victorian-flavored boots for your pointy-toed or steampunk wedding

We recently shared a post on Facebook that featured a photo with the boots above as the illustration. Immediately a reader was like "Whatever about that post — WHAT ABOUT THOSE BOOTS." So perhaps it's time to share a small collection of Victorian boots. These could be great Neo-Victorian or steampunk wedding shoes, or maybe you just like booties with lace and pointy toes? Regardless, if granny boots are your thing… this is your post.

19 affordable wedding shoes under $50

Think your economical shoe budget can't get you big footwear fashion? AU CONTRAIRE! Under $50 is no problem. A small caution with super cheap shoes: some of these are going to be designer knock-offs. Some of them might not be the most comfortable or well-constructed. Some of them are available in limited quantities or are only available in limited sizes. For this post, I prioritized price point over all other interests. So if you're looking for fabulous, offbeat bridal footwear that's going to make your feet look sweet for the afternoon you get married, this is your post.

Comfortable wedding shoes are NOT an oxymoron

First, let's start out with the simple truth: comfort is subjective. There are some of us who swear that 4" platform heels are completely comfortable (and of course they are, compared to 5" non-platform heels!), while others of us will only wear flats. Meanwhile, others of us find the lack of arch support in flats to be a complete killer — flats are the worst for some arches! Keeping in mind that no collection of comfortable shoes could ever be perfect for everyone, I thought I'd wrastle up a few of my very favorite funky, colorful, and yes somewhat comfortable wedding shoes. My focus here is on brands known for their comfort, as well as lower heel height, chunkier heels, and flats.

Platform shoes to elevate your wedding day

Aww, platforms. I'm not sure which era they're hearkening to at this point — the '90s, which were hearkening to the '70s? I can't keep track, but I've missed them. Tons of chunky heels and sky-high weirdness in here — and as always, I have terrible and very loud taste. I tried to include a few white pretties… but there are also a pair of rainbow gladiators with gold gilded inverted heels so… prepare yourself!

I dare you to wear any of these shoes at your wedding

The Offbeat Empire's Vendor Relations Manager is a New Jersey babe named Tiffany who has colorful, eclectic tastes that mirror my own when it comes to skirting right along that edge of "too much in a good way" and "wait, is it just too much?" She recently shared ZombiePeepshow's shoes with me, and now it's official: I'm dying to see an Offbeat Bride rock these on their wedding day. For the rest of us who are a little less daring, ZombiePeepshow is some amazing eye candy here…

All these shoes have a little surprise for you. It might be something on the sole, something hiding behind the heel, or just a subtle visual element that isn't immediately obvious. Also, pretty much all of them are sky-high heels — sorry flats-lovers!

Vintage-ish t-strap wedding shoes

So you want vintage-ish, but new. You want heels (or maybe flats?). You want some strappiness. And of course, you want some color. Today I'm going to dabble in t-strap heels and flats, which can help you out on all these accounts. Below you'll find a few of my current favorites, including a surprising number of t-strap Oxfords, which always give a bit of a sexy librarian feel to a wedding day…
