While we've seen many brides don heels in nude, "something blue," and even offbeat colors like red or green on their wedding days, a number of women have always envisioned wearing a classic white heel as they walk down the aisle. For the bride who wants to wear a pair of chic ivory heels on the big day, we have completed the search! From traditional pumps, to strappy sandals, to peep-toe styles, a bridal heel in wedding white is always a timeless choice that will complement a bridal gown in a traditional vanilla hue and never go out of style.
Selecting an all-white wedding shoe doesn't mean the design has to be plain! Bridal shoe designers are embellishing ivory wedding heels with floral appliqués, charming bows, sparkling crystal details, and other unique embellishments for those beauties who desire extra adornments that look especially fun and lovely in detail shots for your wedding album. Like the "second wedding dress" trend, many brides are also choosing to wear a more-bridal shoe style during the ceremony and later switch to a flat, bootie, or sneaker look for the reception or after-party!
No matter what your desired wedding shoe style is – from funky to sophisticated, we've gathered 13 white bridal heels to inspire your choice that are all absolutely stunning and fabulous. Start shopping your favorites by clicking the links below the images!

We love these heels! They have a classic pump-style toe with unique embellishments, including crystal details just before the toe, as well as a beautiful bow at each ankle. This style is perfect for the bride who wants to blend classic and modern details. “Olivia Ivory” bridal shoes with bows and jewels, $595 by Bella Belle Shoes
If you love white but your dress isn't a stark white, these ivory sandals are the perfect choice. We love the subtle pearl details at each ankle – it's like a built-in anklet that keeps your heels comfortable all night long, while also looking incredibly chic. "Yanelli" ivory heels with pearl details, $140 by Sam Edelman (available at BHLDN)
This style is the ultimate choice for the bride who wants a timeless wedding heel for her big day. Badgley Mischka has been a favorite of brides for decades, and this crisp white style with a sparkling buckle detail at the toe will always remain a classic choice. “Cher” pointed-toe pump, $225 by Badgley Mischka (available on Amazon
If you're planning on having a bohemian-style wedding or you just want your boho style to come across in your wedding footwear, you'll love these lace-up wedding heels with a lace motif. You'll definitely want to wear these after the big day too! "Cameron" lace-up wedding heels in Ivory, $325 by Bella Belle Shoes
Another classic choice, these pumps in ivory satin are certainly timeless. While they'd be beautiful with just the satin styling, we love that there's a surprise crystal detail on the ankle. They'll look beautiful on the dance floor and in your wedding detail shots that will grace your album! “Celine” satin sandals with crystal details, $403 by Freya Rose (available at BHLDN)
Christian Louboutin is another favorite for brides, and we love how these classic pumps have surprise details, like corded lace designs on mesh around the entire foot. These would be perfect for a bride who is having a classic ballroom wedding since the stiletto heel may not do well in outdoor environments with grass lawns, gravel, cobblestones, and so on. "Galativi 85" leather, lace, and mesh pumps, $795 by Christian Louboutin (available at Net-a-Porter
These heels are so fun! We love the bow detail at the ankle, as well as the design on the pointed toe. They're romantic, cute, and elegant – fitting a number of different bridal styles and wedding themes. "Penelope" lace & pearl wedding heels, $405 by Bella Belle Shoes
These stylish heels blend shimmering crystal details with romantic bows. Tie them into a large bow on the side, or crisscross the straps up your ankle for two different looks in one. “Bobbie” heels with bow detail at ankle, $245 by Badgley Mischka (available at BHLDN)
These are one of our favorite bridal styles for those who aren't afraid of an asymmetrical look. The right foot has a bow at the back of the ankle, while the left foot has a bow on the thin toe strap. They'll look beautiful on and in your wedding detail shots! "Aveline" ankle strap sandal with bows, $975 by Jimmy Choo (available at Nordstrom)
For fans of the similar Christian Louboutin style, these pumps with embellishments over mesh will give you a similar look at a lower price point. “Elsa Ivory” sequin-studded heels, $419 by Bella Belle Shoes
Brides love wearing Loeffler Randall heels to various wedding events, such as the bridal shower or engagement party, but this look is also perfect for the wedding day! The block heel is ideal for outdoor weddings, so you don't have to worry about sinking into the grass. "Camellia" heels with crinkled taffeta bows, $395 by Loeffler Randall (available at BHLDN)
Looking for a low heel? These stunning heels have a classic pump look with elegant pearl details in a T-strap formation that ends with a bow tied at the back. They're classic, yet unique – perfect for the bride who wants to stand out and remain timeless. "Lucia" ivory pearl bridal shoes with bow, $365 by Bella Belle Shoes
More and more brides are embracing bootie styles for the big day. These peep-toe booties with floral appliqués are perfect for the reception or after-party – as well as the ceremony itself! “Belle by Joy Proctor” mesh peep-toe booties, $375 by Bella Belle Shoes; bellabelleshoes.com
Remember, most bridal shoes won't even show beneath your wedding dress (unless you're a bride who has chosen a high-low, tea-length, or shorter style), so don't be afraid to choose a style that has some sparkle, personality, or comfort that doesn't 100% match your gown.
You want to feel like yourself on the big day – while also being comfortable – so try on your favorite shoes and pick your absolute favorite look. If you can't choose, go with one pair for the ceremony and another pair for the reception or after-party. Happy shopping!
