Wedding shoes are one of those weird wedding accessories that you can find yourself spending almost nothing on, or if you try on a certain pair you can feel like all of a sudden you’re spending your entire outfit budget!

Thankfully most brides, however, seem to err on the lower side when it comes to their wedding shoes. According to a new survey from Zola, 70% of brides spent under $100 on their wedding shoes. Ever wondered what TYPE of wedding shoes other brides are wearing? Here’s what the brides they surveyed said as well:

  1. Traditional high heel (33%)
  2. Flat or sandal (27%)
  3. Kitten heel (10%)
  4. .Bridal sneaker (6%)
  5. Wedge (4%)
  6. Other­: Barefoot, ballroom dance shoes, cowboy boots, and one bride said “handmade leather fairy boots.” LOL.

I can tell you from experience that I wore mine once–on our wedding day–and I’ve yet to put them on since. So I’m definitely a fan of spending as little as you can on a pair of shoes that are comfortable and stylish but don’t break the bank. And it’s not that hard to find!
