    Why did you order such high heels? I’ve got a pair of Jimmy Choos with a 5″ heel and 1″ concealed platform and they look saucy but not cheap. However, most really high heels with large platforms look rather stripper-ish.

    That’s what I will be wearing so I vote no.

    I chose them because it’s the brand I always wear and I know them to be VERY comfortable, also it worked out perfectly so I didn’t have to have the dress length altered.

    Is your dress full length?  IF so I wouldn’t worry what people will think, they probably won’t even see them.

    What do yours look like?

    I think how uncomfortable they are really depends on the brand, and on how comfortable you are in heels to begin with.  If you wear heels all the time and it’s a decent quality shoe, it’s probably a non-issue.  If you’ve never worn heels before in your life, or the shoes are really cheap, it’s more likely to get uncomfortable.

    I don’t think so, I’m bringing and a pair of flat shoes to change in. I love high heels though.

    No – but I would have some shoes to change into. I wore really high heels for pictures and the ceremony and had platform sneakers for the reception. (They had to be platform because I’m a shorty so the dress was hemmed to the correct length with heels on, and once I took the heels off the dress couldn’t be dragging all over the floor.) It worked out great.

    depends on the shoes themselves, but I had the same because DH is really tall and they did not look “cheap”. Not to mention you cant really see them under the dress anyway. 

    I had no problems with them. They were comfortable, but I am used to wearing heals.

    EDIT: I also had some wedges to change into like a PP because I didnt want my dress dragging, but turns out my heels were more comfortable.

    If you’re going to fall and break your ass, they’re too high. Otherwise, wear what makes you feel beautiful.

    If you’re used to wearing heels they’ll be fine.  If you’re not used to wearing them you’ll be screwed.

    It really depends on how cmfortable they are. I have deformed feet, and I struggle to get the right width. I find it easier to wear heels than flats, though, because they are often wider around the toe joints in order to allow the toes to spread and grip. For that reason, I think the height is irrelevant.

    @flouncy:  Have you worn Loubies before? I LOVE them to look at but find them really uncomfortable (especially in comparison to Choos).
