The Ultimate Guide To Wedding Shoes

Comfy Wedding Shoes

How to choose the best shoes for your wedding day

Did you know on average bride’s tend to stand for 12 hours on their wedding day? This is why comfort is prioritised within all of our collections (along with beautifully crafted shoewear of course!). We all know the moment you put a shoe on you can tell if you will feel supported and comfortable wearing them. We want you to make those steps from Miss to Mrs feeling like you are walking on a cloud.

We use luxurious latex padding that has been tried and tested to ensure you feel the cushioning within your shoes. Alongside that, we use a soft luxurious leather so there is no need to worry about rubbing against your skin. Our wedding shoes are crafted with you at the forefront of our designs - this is why we are proud to have such a variety of bridal block heels to suit your purpose.


Charlotte Mills shoes wouldn’t be possible without our fantastic Spanish production team - (a family run factory) tirelessly handcrafting our bridal shoes with love and care to ensure only the most beautiful and comfortable shoes for our brides. Each pair of Charlotte Mills shoes is meticulously finished with our signature details, which include an original silver sixpence inserted into every left shoe and a beautiful embossed sole.

Using nothing but the finest materials (incl: leather, pearls, crushed glitter) to ensure the products are the perfect-fit and texture. From pattern cutting, piping, stitching, trimming, buckles to finish - each aspect is handcrafted by the team. The average Charlotte Mills style is handled by 100 workers before arriving with our brides.

Finding The Right Fit

We have a range of block heel heights from low (1cm-4cm), to mid (7cm-8cm), to high block heels (9-10.5cm). Choose a style you feel most comfortable in. If you’re unsure we have appointments available at our showroom The Aisle Edit, or you can contact customer service ( for any further advice.

Introducing the wide fit range
