Whether you're the bride, a bridesmaid or a guest, planning an outfit for an upcoming wedding is, more often than not, a challenging task. Sure, you may already know exactly what dress you're wearing for the occasion. And you've probably gotten your hair and makeup look down to an art. But then come the finishing touches, which include accessories and shoes.

If you're the one planning to say "I do" at the end of the aisle, the tricky part to finding the perfect pair of shoes for your big day is finding ones that go with your wedding dress. Sometimes, this may be in the form of a simple and classic stiletto heel. Of course, if you don't want to spend your entire day with aching feet, you can also go for comfortable wedding shoes with a low heel, instead (especially if you're going for an alternative bridal look as a modern bride).

Now, wedding shoes aren't strictly reserved for the one preparing her nuptials. If you're part of the bridal party, or you're in the audience as a guest, odds are you have to consider stylish options to go with your outfits, too.

We know the search for the perfect wedding shoe, no matter who you are, is easier said than done. So, we at ET Style scanned the internet and pulled together our favorites for you to shop in one place.

Whether you're spending the wedding day in a bridal dress and veil, you're standing next to the one making her vows or you're simply attending, scroll down to shop our favorite wedding shoes to wear this spring.

For the Bride

Of all the different types of bridal shoes out there, there's nothing more classic than a strappy heel. We love this sophisticated style from Stuart Weitzman, which wraps around the ankle.

A pleated, pointy-toe pump set -- doesn't get much more elegant than that.

For the bride planning to walk down the aisle in an outdoor venue, consider a pair of block heels, which keep you from sinking into the ground.

These block heels mesh comfort, sophistication and nostalgia all together to cultivate the most charming style.

The low-key bride will love wearing these simple block-heel mules, which will also be great for before and after the wedding, too.

 For the Bridal Party

Give your bridal party a shoe worth celebrating along with your nuptials, which will look just as good going down the aisle as it will on the reception dance floor. Plus, what makes this shoe so great is the fact that this silver metallic heel will go with any type of dress you wear.
$35 AT H&M

When in doubt, you'll never go wrong with classic black heels, whether you're in the bridal party or not. These strappy sandals feature a chunky block heel, which will keep you comfortable through the entire night.

If you want to add a subtle touch of color to your look, opt for a petal pink pair of easy slingback sandals, like these.

Keep it strappy and stylish with these versatile, neutral block heel mules from Reformation.

All that glitters is not gold -- but these are both and shoppers love the extra pop they add to any outfit.

For the Guests

The next time you're heading to a wedding, opt for a cool, playful and funky touch with this '70s-inspired python-embossed wedge.

If you're wearing a more simple dress for your next wedding, make a statement with your shoes. This satin mule from Jeffrey Campbell features oversized chain hardware, which is a major trend for spring.

If you don't want to sport a wedge but want to get the same level of height and comfort, opt for a clog style shoe, which is perfect for spring wedding looks.

The ruched detail on these mules offer a more refined, elegant look to an otherwise classic shoe.

Textured straps layered across the sandal give this shoe and extra layer of depth and boldness.
