There are three important things to consider when planning a wedding (outside of finding someone to marry, because I can’t help you with that anyway): The dress, the food, and the shoes, in that order, because everyone knows that this is the only event ever wherein clothing (or anything, really) is more important than the food. Dresses are pretty personal choices, but you can feel free to look at some of our favorite celeb picks if you’re looking for inspiration. That said, shoes aren’t that personal, and I can definitely help you pick out the right pair.

I don’t know about you, but I tend to get pretty severe sticker shock where shoes are concerned. I will very rarely buy a pair of shoes if I’m shopping on my own and see a price tag that reads anything above $40, and some of my favorite ones that I find while window or online shopping are well above $100. I’m assuming that there are plenty of you out there who are just like me and look for discounts wherever you go, so I put together a helpful list for you! Not every shoe here is under $50 because, well, I’m assuming that you might be willing to invest a bit more for your wedding day. That said, everything is under $100, which is pretty great, right?

Check out these great bridal shoes under $100:

1. Sixth Sense Heel (ASOS, $76)

What’s more appropriate for a wedding than a pair of neutral, embellished heels? The heel on these isn’t so high that your feet will be killing you by the end of the night, and even if you do want to take them out at some point during the night, at least you’ll have a good time showing them off.

2. Zesty and I Know It Heels (ModCloth, $62.99)

If you didn’t have a plan for your Something Blue, these shoes are a good choice. Plus, the bow is adorable and kind of tuxedo-esque.

3. Betsey Johnson Raciee Glitter Pump (DSW, $69.95)

There’s bound to be at least one bride reading this who wants an all-glitter-everything wedding, and these shoes fit right in.

4. Stecy Heeled Sandals (Steve Madden, $79.95)

I’m willing to bet that, if you’ve gone wedding shoe shopping, you’ve come across Stuart Weitzman‘s The Nudist sandal at one point or another, and I wouldn’t blame you if you gave in and bought them—they are gorgeous, after all. That said, if you don’t want to pay close to $400 for a pair of shoes, these Steve Madden shoes are a great dupe.

5. Silver Gem Block Heel Sandals (River Island, $96)

Block heels have been seriously on-trend for the past few seasons, and if Fashion Month was any indication, I’m willing to be they still will be come next Spring. The gem-encrusted heels on these make them party-ready, and the block heel will be waaaay more comfortable than your standard stiletto.

6. Lauren Lorraine Yvette Embellished Booties (Nordstrom Rack, $32.68)

I can see an edgy bride wearing these, maybe with a high-low gown, or even a short one.

Beach wedding, anyone?

8. Frolic Pointy Toe Pumps (Nine West, $79)

Since carrying a bouquet of shoes down the aisle would be a little weird and definitely kind of heavy, why not just wear floral shoes? This could be a fun alternative either for a bride who doesn’t want to carry flowers, or as something to tie together all of the different bridesmaids’ looks.

9. Colyn Flats (Aldo, $70)

Just a gentle reminder that not all bridal shoes need to be heels. Flats can totally work too, and these lace-up ones are pretty great.

10. Pointed Stiletto Court Shoes (Missguided, $42.50)

Had to include one for the classic, traditional bride, didn’t I?

11. Badgley Mischka Jennifer Rhinetone-Embellished Peep Toe D’Orsay Pumps (Saks Off 5th, $74.99)

Like I said, the classics are the greatest. Plus, these remind me of the Badgley Mischka’s that Mr. Big used to propose to Carrie in the Sex and the City movie, and I like that.
