Wedding fever has reached new heights following the nuptials of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle - and as all brides know, one's big day isn't simply about the dress. It's all about one's wedding shoe too. Think bridal footwear and you instantly think of Carrie Bradshaw's to-die-for Manalo Blahnik's in Sex and the City. Clever M&S created its own version of the gorgeous shoe last year, and of course, they sold out due to high demand.
Now the high street favourite has restocked the must-have heel and we're telling you all about it. The M&S stiletto heel jewel pointed toe court shoe is priced at £39.50 and comes in two shades: ivory and blush. We're in love with these shoes –ivory Manolo's at Harvey Nichols retail for £745, but buy the M&S dupe and you'll get a huge saving of £705.50.

The fab thing about the M&S bridal shoe is the comfy element (yes, we know, we're so uncool). The shoe comes with Insolia soles, endorsed by the UK College of Podiatrists. It takes the weight off the balls of your feet, reduces pressure and gives you a more stable ankle – exactly what you need for a long wedding day in heels.

One review on the M&S website reads: "Love, Love, Love! I had an evening event to go to with a very simple plain cream dress so I wanted to dress them up with some shoes. These shoes are simply stunning! Beautiful blush colour, not brash in any way, and the diamante on the front is gorgeous, I wore them for three hours and they are also so comfortable and perfect fit." The customer added: "My little five year old girl loves dressing up in these so beware mums!"
We also adore the diamante detail on the toe, so very Carrie. We'll take both colours please M&S!
