Could you do a wedge heel? (Going into this completely blind, not sure how formal your dress/wedding is…)

They provide a little more stability for your feet, and I find them more comfy than a traditional heel. Also, if you can, get a shoe with at least a little platform. That extra padding under the foot really helps boost the comfy level, and your feet aren’t  “slanting up” as much…

For reference, here’s my wedding shoe, with a wedge heel and the platform:

Wedges rock! My wedding is pretty casual, and my shoes will be hidden under my dress anyways, so I am wearing some keds wedges. They are SOOO comfortable and have a 3″ heel.

I have seen those keds wedges and they are pretty cute, you could try those and change into flip flops for the reception, alot of people change their shoes for the reception.

I think you should wear whatever you think will make you most comfortable.  If you want to wear flats then go ahead and wear them.  If you do decide that you want heels then I would look around for a low heel that you think you’ll feel good standing in for a few hours.  I would also look into some products to make them more comfortable, you know like those ball of foot pads and blister protector.  Here are some low heels that I found on Zappos.com and a pair of flats that I thought were really nice if you decide to go that way instead.  You could also change into different shoes at some point in the night.

Oh and here is a website that you might find usefull if you do wear heels:

Here are some other thoughts:

From Zappos.com

Maybe heels for the ceremony and those flipflops for dancing the night away?

I wore flats and was so glad I did.  Granted I felt I had to because I am already two inches taller than fiance, but I wore them all day and my feet felt fantastic!

I’m ballet wearing flats (with heels I’m as tall as my FI).  These are mine, but my goal was to find some cole haan ballet flats that have the nike air in the sole.  I am on my feet a lot for work, so I don’t want to be in pain by the end of the night – especially since I’m looking forward to all the dancing.
