Hi,

here is something I have found on kissthegroom site. I am not sure if you are thinking something like this but I loved these.. I am very short so I couldn’t consider this option but I think it’s a great idea!! 🙂

I think flats would be great.  Checkout Zappos.com or Shoes.com.  They seem to have a ton of pretty cool flats that you might like.

yep they are from Christian Louboutin. I searched for you but couldn’t find any white ones 🙁

my dress is off white and I am getting Christian Louboutin’s pink pumps, matching with my pink bouquet:)

I’ve worn actual ballet shoes (I think they were capezios) with a formal gown before (I didn’t want to wear heels and my dress was primarily white) and it worked fairly well- however, because your ceremony is in a park I would caution against wearing them. The sole is made for the dancer to have excellent contact with the floor (which I can appreciate on a good dance floor) however you will feel every single bump and rock in the ground which I got tired of very quickly when I wore them outside.

I would suggest regular flats (there are some cute white ones on Zappos)- I would worry about heels sinking into the ground anyway.

I love the ballet slipper idea!  Just a suggestion, from someone who wears flats to work, and pretty much everywhere else — they can be uncomfortable just like heels… so if it doesn’t pain you to do so, maybe wear them around outside a little beforehand (for errands or something else benign).  I’ve gotten many a blister from stiff new flats — just because they don’t have a heel, don’t assume they’ll be a breeze all day!  I might use Foot Petals on the bottom with these or these, and maybe even the back of the heel, just in case, to make them even comfier.  Of course, it depends on the pair — if they are super soft or on the wide side to start with, then you’re probably fine.

Freed of London (probably other dance brands too) makes satin ballet slippers and satin is dyeable. But real ballet slippers have no support, it will be like you’re barefoot. If you’re not comfortable with that, I’d buy ballet flats that are real shoes.
