When it comes to wedding-guest dressing, there's little room for throwing an opportunistic look together. As soon as that invite drops on the doormat/inbox, you'll spend more time questioning what to wear, how you'll stay dry and what bag will be most useful than how you'll travel there or what to gift the happy couple.
But the biggest conundrum is (without a doubt) choosing a pair of shoes. If you've got a slew of weddings stretching throughout the year, you'll happily recoup lots of cost per wear out of a sensible but not-too-safe style in nude or metallic (preferably in a heel height that'll leave your sense of humour intact after 12 hours on your feet).
If you want to ensure that nothing will hinder you being first on the dance floor, block midi heels are the way to go (ditto if the venue is in a field in the middle of nowhere). And if you really want to wear flats, do it—just make sure they're fabulous. Check out our edit of the best wedding-guest shoes below.
