The ridiculously comfy occasion wear shoes wedding guests need to know about

More than 200,000 weddings take place in the UK each year, and the chances are we’ll all receive an invite to at least one of them.

And for those who are keen to put their best foot forward on such a special day, shoes make up a key element of the wedding guest ensemble.

Although a pair of heels would seem the natural choice for this important occasion, being able to continue partying into the small hours pain-free is often the priority.

This is where the Hotter’s Rita Sandals step in. Part of the leading shoe brand’s occasion wear collection, these stylish sandals come in two go-with everything colours: Black and Soft Silver (pictured).

Currently on sale priced at £42 (down from £72) and available in standard fit – the sandals feature flexible and fashion forward elasticated crossover straps with rear heel support to keep your foot in place, while offering flexibility as you move.

Metallic and wedges are two style staples that show no signs of abating, so once the wedding celebrations are over you’ll be able to wear the shoes to everything from christenings to summer parties.

All sizes from 3 to 9 – excluding 4.5 – are available in Soft Silver and the same applies to Black – excluding 4.5 and 7.5.

Delivery is free via click and collect (up to 7 days) or £2.95 for standard UK delivery (up to 3 working days).

Another sandal that ticks the boxes for wearable and wedding-ready are the Wendy Sandals.

Available in Black, Iridescent (pictured) and Meadow Floral and in standard this sandal is also currently on sale at £49 (down from £72).

These comfortable slip-on shoes feature a rope covered subtle wedge heel and come in three different fabric finishes, with the Iridescent colour the only one to include a bow accent.

The Floral design is currently available in all sizes (3–9), while the Iridescent is available in all sizes apart from 3. The Black design meanwhile only has the following sizes still available: 4, 4.5, 5 and 6.

All that’s left to do is complete your outfit with the requisite fascinator or wide brimmed hat and the perfect dress, two-piece or trouser suit.
