The ubiquitous white sneaker is a wardrobe staple. But it's also become a wedding style staple. Many brides are choosing a cute pair of trainers as their secondary shoe when the time comes to kick off the heels and bring a bit of street-style funk and comfort to their bridal look. If it fits your style, you can also opt to wear the sneakers as your all-day shoe—there are so many cool ones to chose from. The only issue will be deciding exactly what is the perfect pair: glittery, embellished, retro, platform, slip on, the options are endless. And bonus: these are wedding shoes you will DEFINITELY wear again!

We are currently in a major sneakerhead phase and have happily done the market research for you on the cutest kicks for your wedding day. Here are seven of our current favourites that any laid-back bride can pair with her bridal outift.

For Whimsical Garden Brides: Ted Baker London Mispir print lace-up sneaker. We love these sneaks for their English country feel and the rose gold hardware adds a lovely luxe touch.

For Boho Skater Girls: Sam Edelman Eda sneaker. These leather slip-ons with chic woven details will also give you a little boost thanks to its slight platform style.

For Sparkle Lovers: Keds for Kate Spade glitter sneaker. The classic retro camp sneaker gets pixie dusted and ribbon tied for a look that is 100% party perfect.

For Retro Sporty Vibes: K-Swiss Classic VN. If you are a 90s kid, you likely rocked these classics which are back and are a cool option to wear under a voluminous ballgown for your dance party.

For Classic Kicks With A Twist: Adidas Superstar. First launched in 1969, these iconic shell-toe trainers now come in a pink three stripe model which is wedding perfect!

For High Fashion Minimalism: Prada White Cassetta Logo platform sneakers. They're Prada baby, enough said!

For Megan Markle Chicness: Veja Esplar Sneaker. These vegan kicks were waitlisted in a nanosecond when the Duchess of Sussex wore a pair on her Australian tour last fall.

For A Classic 1980s Throwback: Reebok Club C 85 Vintage. All the cool kids are rocking these kicks and we love the cream colour and mint detailing (neo mint is one of the colours of the mo!)
