Blue pairs beautifully with wedding dresses of all shades of pale. If you want to create a stylish contrast, go for cobalt or navy; for added prettiness, it’s a sky or dusty blue; and for a cool colour pop, choose teal or aquamarine.

What’s more, blue is universally pleasing – a survey actually found that it’s the world’s most popular colour!

To help you find the perfect pair to suit your style, we’ve rounded up our favourite blue wedding shoes. These include a range of shades, styles and heel heights – worry not, flat-shoe-lovers, we have you covered, too – and different budgets.
