Kids’ Wedding Shoes – The Best Shoes to Dress Up Your Child!


Do you have a wedding coming up and you just can’t seem to find dress shoes for your kids? Are you looking for stylish shoes that they can wear to the wedding but also to other occasions as well? Are you trying to save some money considering your child will wear these shoes only once? I have put together a selection of the best kids’ wedding shoes in terms of style, support, and comfort, and the shoes are also available in different widths such as narrow (N), medium (M), wide (W), and extra wide widths (XW).

My Experience Fitting Children’s Shoes – Over a Decade of Shoe Fitting Experience!

I have been working for a children’s shoe store for 10 years now and I have helped several parents who have come at the last minute desperately looking for their kids’ wedding shoes. When parents start looking for their kids’ wedding shoes they tend to choose ivory Mary Jane or flats for their girls, and a black or brown pair of dress shoes for their boys.


Finding a good pair of wedding shoes for boys is normally much easier than finding a good pair of wedding shoes for girls. While there is a good selection of black/brown wedding shoes for boys, you won’t be able to find many ivory or white dress shoes for your girl. This is a fact, and it’s not because you are not looking in the right place, it’s just because most shoe companies don’t make a good selection of white or ivory wedding shoes for girls.

However, I have good news for you since at the children’s shoe store that I work for, we carry a good selection of white/ivory dress shoes for girls, which are also available in different widths. Keep in mind that not all children’s feet are the same, and we must find shoes that will fit your kid’s feet, no matter how wide or how narrow they are.

Wedding Shoes for Kids – Affordable and Durable!

When looking for your kids’ dress shoes, we must be able to find something reasonably priced —since your child will not wear these shoes often— and something durable too. Keep in mind that especially for dress shoes in general, we always try to leave a little bit of extra growing room, since we want our kids to wear these shoes for a longer period of time.

For example, if you take your kids to church or synagogue every weekend that means your kids will wear their dress shoes every week. That’s why leaving a little bit of extra room is important, since you will want your kids wearing their dress shoes for a longer time, not just one particular occasion!

However, some parents are okay with not leaving any extra growing room in their kids’ dress shoes, since they already know their kids won’t wear them for a long time after that particular occasion. Whether you want to leave a little bit of extra room or fit your kids’ dress shoes just right, I will help you find the perfect pair of wedding shoes for your child!


The Best Dress Shoes for Your Child to Wear to a Wedding!

Dress shoes are one of the most important compliments, no matter what type of dress your child wears.

But remember one important thing: Comfort is key! Your kids are going to want to play and run around all the time, so we must provide them with comfortable shoes!

Never provide shoes for your child that don’t fit the shape of their feet perfectly! You might end up creating all sorts of foot problems such as calluses, blisters, and corns.

I will start by showing you the best shoes for a boy to wear to a wedding, this includes shoes that come in different widths such as medium, wide, and extra wide widths, and then I will describe the best wedding shoes for your girl.

Black or Brown Dress Shoes for Boys? – Choose Them Wisely!

Boys like to play rough, they don’t care if they are at a wedding or on the playground, they will still run and chase after their friends. It’s important to find a pair of good, substantial dress shoes for them to be able to play and run confidently.

We want to look for dress shoes that are lightweight, flexible, and durable. We also want them to provide good traction, so our kids don’t slip and fall when running around.

Below you can find a selection of the best dress shoes for boys that are supportive, durable, and lightweight.

These dress shoes will fit a child with medium, wide, or extra wide feet, just choose the width of the shoe to match your child’s foot shape (M=Medium, W=Wide). The “wide” width in most dress shoes will accommodate a child with extra wide feet.

Keep in mind that if you want your kids’ dress shoes to last a little longer, you will choose the ones with velcro closure or shoelaces, but never the low-fur styles. The main reason is that low furs shoes need to be fitted heel-to-toe, which means that we won’t be able to leave any growing room for our kids to grow into the shoes. This is something to definitely keep in mind when choosing your boys’ dress shoes.

Ivory or White Dress Shoes for Girls? – The Secret Revealed!

Do you have a wedding coming up and you can’t seem to find dress shoes for your girl? Is your daughter going to be a flower girl at a wedding? 

The most popular choice for wedding shoes for girls are either ivory/white Mary Jane or flats. They seem to be the parents’ first choice when looking for wedding shoes for their girls. However, parents are always complaining that they have a hard time finding these types of shoes, especially if their kids have wide or extra feet.

Luckily I have fitted these shoes before, and I know which styles will be the best choices for your kids’ feet!

Some parents are always complaining about why it’s so hard to find good quality, leather, classic little girl’s dress shoes these days! It’s actually not that hard, maybe you just have been looking in the wrong place!

What Shoe Size Should You Order?

In each of the descriptions of the shoes, I indicate whether you need to order a half size or a whole size bigger than your child’s foot size to provide the correct amount of growing room.

These dress shoes will fit a child with medium, wide, or extra wide feet just choose the width of the shoe to match your child’s foot shape (M=Medium, W=Wide). The “wide” width in most dress shoes will accommodate a child with extra wide feet.

You can choose from ballet flats for her to the classic dressy Mary Jane with adjustable buckle and pancake heel appropriate for all dressy occasions!

Are Any Other Shoe Choices Available?

If none of these shoes are available in your child’s shoe size or if you need the shoes to be made of a specific color don’t hesitate to email me at:


I always recommend parents to take their kids to their local children’s shoe store, so they can have their kids’ shoes properly fitted. However, several parents have contacted me asking where they can get their kids’ shoes online, since they don’t have a local kids’ shoe store in their area.
