I am not a heel wearer. I work in a lab so I am normally in flats, and will occasionally wear short wedges or kitten heels to special events. But then I fell in love with the Badgley Mischka Lacie which has a 3″ heel. I have been wearing them around the house for a couple of weeks. They aren’t too bad and I can walk in them- but I’m more concerned with standing still during the ceremony and pictures? I bought one size up and added some foot petals, and I will definitely switch to flats or flip flops for the reception.
If you are not a regular heel-wearer did you wear high heels on your wedding day? Did you regret it? The last thing I want to be thinking about that day is how bad my feet hurt, and I’m wondering if it’s even worth it if no one will see my shoes under my dress anyway.

I wore heels and couldn’t even walk in them. But I made it through the ceremony and pictures. I changed into flats much earlier than I expected– I’d worn heels the night before and my feet were just DONE. You should be fine, especially if you’re practicing– something I dearly wish I’d done.

The thing about wearing 3″ heels is that if you have to take them off, you will completely trip on your dress because it will be way too long. I wore a 1.5″ heel. I figured that it wasn’t too high, so if I had to change out of them it wouldn’t make my dress seem too much longer. I spent a lot of time wearing them in (I went dancing in them a few times), and ended up keeping them on the whole time.
The other thing to consider when picking shoes- for the ceremony you are just standing still, which is very different from walking around. Some flats are actually very uncomfortable to just stand up in for extended periods of time.

I wore flat TOMS! I am not a regular heel-wearer and I did not want to deal with my dress dragging all night after I took them off. I felt that it wouldn’t be very “me” if I wore heels on this one occassion.
I have to say though, my DH and I are EXACTLY the same height (it’s weird, I know) so if I had worn heels I would have been several inches taller than him. I really didn’t want to do that.

BoilerBride101015: I am not a regular heel wearer and on my wedding day I wore lacey white flats. I didn’t want to change shoes or worry about my hem being too long after switching shoes. It worked great. I was comfortable all day.

I wear heeled boots and tall wedges a lot, but opted for modest wedges for the wedding so I could walk over grass, gravel, and uneven flagstone. They worked out really well and my feet weren’t sore at all.

I am a heel wearer and can run a mile in 5 inch heels if i wanted. I opted for a lower heel for my wedding, 3 inch stuart weitzman heels and was very comfortable the entire night. i am 5’4 and feel like my dress didnt flow right if I went in flats, and I would look stumpy. the extra height gave me that extra oomph i was looking for
