When my editor forwarded me a list of 2019’s top wedding trends, I didn’t expect to see anything too far outside the norm. Zeitgeisty movements tend to dictate things like wedding dress styles, floral motifs and bridesmaid dress colors (blush, again?!). But this year, I noticed something of a theme in the details du jour—brides were embracing wedding gowns with pockets, bridal suits over bridal dresses, and wedding sneakers over wedding heels (or other forms of wedding footwear). It became clear that 2019 was the year of the Rational Wedding, with brides favoring comfort and practicality over convention and formality. And as someone who favors flats over heels on the daily, I was thoroughly here for it.

Now, this 2019 wedding trends email didn’t actually dictate when and where these bridal sneakers were to be worn. It’s entirely possible that 2019 brides plan to walk down the aisle in one thing and slip into something a bit cozier for the hours-long reception. Either way, wedding sneakers are the walking embodiment (literally) of a power move. The shoe-obsessed will undoubtedly revel in the opportunity to sport two distinct footwear options on their big day. And the heel-averse will have the chance to avoid discomfort altogether; bridal gowns are so long, no one can really peep what you’re wearing underneath—so why not wear whatever the fuck you want?

Even nicer than the sheer existence of this movement is the veritable plethora of ways to shop it. Dainty white sneakers are abundantly on offer at many of your favorite retailers (or at least, at many of our favorite retailers). And you can really get as delicate—or decidedly edgy—as you want. Bridal sneakers are available in every variety under the sun—woven, chunky, embroidered, metallic, athletic, beachy, you name it. So no matter what wedding aesthetic you’ve settled on, you’re sure to find a sneaker that fits right in.

The zeitgeist has made it easier than ever to dance the night away on your big day. So go forth and shop—that’s really all that’s left to do, right?
