Are you wearing a dress short enough to show your shoes? If you’re wearing full-length, wear whatever shoes you want. Including your sneakers if they are most comfortable. To have been engaged for two and a half years, have been shopping for the perfect pair of shoes for that length of time, and I’ve decided I’m wearing flats. Sparkly satin flats, but still flats. I don’t want sore feet to ruin my wedding day!

@kestane:  If there’s any day you should feel comfortable on your feet it’s your wedding. I wore  fuzzy slippers during the ceremony (the dress hid them anyway) and rhinestone flip flops during the reception.

I’m the reverse… I always wear heels and am wearing flats for the wedding. I’m gonna feel so short!!! 

Most comfortable heels on earth are probably fluevogs, but any heel with some chunk to it or at least a wider base is great for someone who doesn’t wear them much. You can still get a great heel look and keep them on the shorter side, too. I wouldn’t go above 2.5-3″ for sure, if that. 

I have iron feet, so I don’t know a lot about inserts, but for anything that is like a pump, I love the little sticky gel things you can put in the heel area to stop it from slipping off your foot, which is usually my biggest complaint about formal shoes. (My heels are usually boot shaped.)

I never wear heels except for formal occasions. I was planning to wear flats at my wedding but I heard that heels help give better posture so I bought a pair of 2-inch heels. The brand is Caparros and they are so comfortable. I have one other pair of heels and they are also Caparros. They are both so comfortable and easy to walk in, and no blisters anywhere! I got them at DSW.

You have almost a year to get yourself heel ready and that is plenty of time.  I was working at a bank as a teller when I first started to wear heels.  After wearing my first pair, which was about a 4 inch heel, for a full eight our day, I swore I would never do it again.  But I waiting a few days, and then did it again.  I got to the point where I could wear them every day no sweat!  I never wear them anymore so I should probably start to prepare for my wedding next month. Good luck!
