A definitive guide to wearing trainers on your wedding day

Sabrina Carder

A wedding day has many sartorial customs, from walking down the aisle in a white dress to wearing something blue for luck. Heels, however, are no longer on the list of requirements.

Many modern brides have made the sensible decision to ditch stilettos for a more casual (and comfortable) pair of sneakers, leaving them to enjoy the day pain-free and dance the night away.

From personalised 'Mrs' Converse to elegant satin ribbon laces and sparkly Jimmy Choo sneakers - here are all the best bridal trainer options.

The budget bride: Kate Spade x Keds

Bow sneakers by Keds x Kate Spade (Kate Spade)

last year Kate Spade collaborated with Keds on a super feminine range of bridal trainers. Styles range from glitter-covered tennis shoes with elegant ribbon laces, to embellished 'Triple-Decker' flatform plimsolls.

And with prices starting at £75, they're a cost effective option to take you from the aisle to the dance floor.

The bespoke bride: Personalised Converse

Ivory wedding converse, £105 (Wedding Converse)

Weddings are all about the personal touches, which is why British brand Wedding Converse allow you to personalise (guaranteed 100% authentic) trainers from Converse, Vans, Nike and Adidas.

From a customised name or the date of your wedding on the side to 'just married' adorned on the heel of each shoe, brides can get creative with whatever detail they prefer.

You can also jazz them up even further by embellishing the tip with Swarovski crystals and adding satin laces.

The classic bride: Superga

Lace trainers, £60 (Superga)

Superga recently launched a wedding edit, which includes everything from retro white high-tops, to their signature sleek tennis shoes and even trainers with a 7cm platform for those who need the extra height.

There's even a bridal-appropriate pair covered in delicate white lace, perfect for those with a matching lace dress. They also come with two sets of laces, one ribbon for your special day and one normal so you can wear them for years to come.

The luxe-loving bride: Jimmy Choo

Crystal Shimmer Suede Low Top Trainers with Crystal Details (Jimmy Choo )

For many, the excuse to buy a pair of designer shoes for their wedding day is just too good an opportunity to pass up.

But, just because you ditch heels doesn't mean you can't invest in a piece of luxury footwear.

Popular bridal shoe brand Jimmy Choo recently launched The Diamond Sneaker range which, as the name suggests, features a super sparkly collection of sneakers covered in dazzling Swarovksi crystals. You might not fancy vertiginous stilettos, but you can still have the showstopping shoes of your dreams.
