Trying to figure out an outfit to wear to a wedding is never easy; you want to look chic and impress the guests but don’t want to be too bold and upstage the bride. An easy and subtle way to add to your ensemble is to wear a pair of chic yet understated heels, especially ones with a low heel so you don’t tire your feet out before you get to the reception. We rounded up some of the chicest low-heel wedding shoes for women — from slingback heels to mules — all with heels under 2.5 inches high.
