Here at vouchercloud HQ, we’ve been noticing a gradual – yet significant – change among us females over the past few years. Heading towards our late twenties and early thirties, we’ve seen a change in our drinking habits – pass the red wine – our weekend activities – think hike and a pub lunch rather than a massive night out on the tiles – and also, prominently, our choice in footwear. From a pair of classic sneakers to the now covetable mule, get us together and we can wax lyrical about the wonders of a flat shoe.
Now don’t get us wrong, we lust after a beautiful heel as much as the next girl – but we have to say we’re total suckers for a sensible, yet chic, flat. As we reach the age where more and more of our friends are starting to head up the aisle – we’ve been thinking that we’ll leave the full day of heel wearing to those with a greater sense of balance and stamina!
The season of weddings is now upon us, so we’ve taken a look at the beautiful flats and sandals that are out there to ensure when it comes to the evenings of weddings across the country we can be looking great, whilst remaining comfortable right into the evening. We’ll be there, ready to throw some shapes on the dance floor with the best of them.
Whether it’s a beautiful beach wedding or a local country ‘do’, we’ve have hunted down the best of the best to make sure that you too can enjoy the benefits of a beautiful flat.
The Perfect Wedding Flats : The Church Wedding
We already have a gazillion weddings in our calendar and a fair few of these are the classic church wedding. A picturesque venue for your insta-snaps, make sure that you can take any cobbled paths or uneven walkways in your stride with a pair of comfortable flats.
We love these chic loafers in faux snakeskin. The diamante embellishment adds a touch of glam that is perfect for making sure your wedding shoe game is on point. We’ll be paring ours with an embellished clutch, lace tea dress, and a simple silver bangle.

The Perfect Wedding Flats : The Beach Wedding
Now if you have ever tried wearing heels on sand, you’ll know this is not a walk of elegance and poise. When you are sipping a pina colada, with the waves lapping behind you, you’ll just want to be soaking up some sun and not worrying about nosediving into the sea.
Go for a bright pair of sandals, such as this fab pair below and team with a great tan, a light dress, and some statement earrings.

The Perfect Wedding Flats : The Country Wedding
With the farm wedding on the rise, we are in complete agreement that the countryside is a wonderful locale for a big day and we are more than happy to make a weekend of it in the gorgeous greenery the UK has to offer.
The one downside to this kind of wedding is the potential for damp mud. A stiletto is not ideal in this scenario which is why we would opt for a classic brogue. This metallic pair below are a fantastic modern update which will look great with a floral print dress. Make sure to pack a packet of wet wipes in your clutch to easily wipe them free of any dirt.

P.S. A pair of wellies is always a good idea to throw in the car just in case the wonderful British weather doesn’t hold up!
