Clockwise from top:

WELL HEELED
Pink bows meet rhinestone-studded straps on Kate Spade’s lovely Lydia heels—perfect for a Portland-style princess. Don these spiky shoes for indoor events, or invest in heel protector caps (try Solemates) to prevent lawn-induced ankle twists or simply getting stuck. $398 at Kate Spade, Pioneer Place Mall, 700 SW Fifth Ave, katespade.com

GREAT HEIGHTS
Leg-flattering wedges offer stylish stability and look great with both long and short dresses. We love how these shimmering Jimmy Choo Fearne sandals let a pretty pedicure peek through. $750 at Nordstrom Downtown Portland, 701 SW Broadway, nordstrom.com

EASY RIDERS
Want a little luxe lift but don’t trust yourself not to stumble down the aisle in stilettos? Sport Christian Louboutin’s ultrachic red-soled kitten heels in ombré glitter. $695 at Marios, 833 SW Broadway, marios.mitchellstores.com

PUMP IT UP
Rochas’s metallic brocade Mary Jane–style platform pumps make a showstopping finish for a short frock or slinky, ground-grazing gown with a high slit. They elongate legs while providing solid footing for dancing and alfresco festivities. $1,144 at Halo Shoes, 938 NW Everett St, haloshoes.com

SWEET & LOW
Nicholas Kirkwood’s pearltrimmed metallic sandals feel big-day beautiful but are far more practical than pumps for outdoor parties and hours on your feet. $695 at Marios, 833 SW Broadway, marios.mitchellstores.com

FIT BIT
Wear your shoes around the house a few weeks prior to your wedding to make sure you can easily walk in them and to prevent day-of blisters and slippery soles.
