Can anyone help me find cute, well-made, *comfortable* flats to wear with a long wedding dress? (And hopefully continue to wear for years after the wedding)
I'm finally ready to move past $15 shoes from Target, but I'm not sure what brands are worth the price.

I got the shoes I wore with my wedding dress from Blowfish. I believe most if not all of their shoes are vegan. My dress was short and kelly green and the shoes were hot pink, so that's a little different, but regardless, they have cute flats. http://www.blowfishshoes.com/

They are very basic and perhaps not as dressy as you might be looking for, but I love the Jing Jing flats from vivobarefoot. The fit is very slipper-like with a thin sole -- I have 3 pairs and wear them almost every day. They have a bunch of different colors, and sometimes you can find a color on sale on Amazon for $30. They have been durable so far -- I've had my oldest pair for about a year and they are going strong. They do run a little small. I wear a 7.5-8 and had to get an 8.5 (39).

Super dressy definitely isn't a requirement - I figure with a long dress my shoes won't be that visible anyway.
Thanks for the suggestions so far!

I was just thinking about you two and wondering if your wedding had taken place yet. So sweet to see a post from you!
I ended up wearing shoes I already had and then just wearing flip flops for most of the afternoon.

I got ballet flats from Ruche (shopruche.com). They have a lot of vegan stuff, and since they have a wedding section (I bought my dress from there too) they have a lot of shoes designed for weddings.

Warning: you might get pretty excited about that site if you find yourself into their clothes.

I would try Ruche or ModCloth for online shopping. But there is always Etsy too. And DSW might have some surprising options, even Zappos these days has a huge selection of vegan shoes but I'm not sure if they have any wedding designers that they sell from.

Aww, hi Amey - it's next spring so I've got a little bit.

I have one pair of shoes from ModCloth but they're super uncomfortable - I guess I'll just have to try some things and see.

Thanks everyone!
