Wedding moccasins and 5 other shoes for brides who don’t give a shit about shoes

I asked some Offbeat Bride readers on Facebook what I should focus my next shoe post on, and one of them said: “What about a post for brides who don’t give a shit about shoes? I was one of those brides. I ended up with a pair of $19.99 moccasins. They were functional, comfortable, cheap, and got the job (aka not being barefoot) done.”

You know what? This is an excellent idea.
