The countdown until your spring wedding is officially on! If you’re a non-traditional bride, you’re probably rocking a non-traditional ring and have chosen an unconventional gown (or jumpsuit… or wedding shorts). Now, an equally unique pair of steppers is in order. Don’t settle for the first wedding-ready style that catches your eye. Instead, take a moment to peruse all the non-traditional footwear options out there. ‘Cause, let’s face it — there’s nothing more safe (read: snooze-worthy) than yet another pair of ivory satin heels. Scroll down for 22 next-level wedding shoes that will straight-up stun on your big day.
