So I had my first dress fitting which I was worried about. I hadn’t seen my dress in about a year or tried it on, so I was wondering if it would still fit, if I wouldn’t like it, etc.
Well, I still LOVE my dress and it fit like a glove! Even though it is a DB dress, I decided to go offsite for the alterations and they will be costing me $220 which is pretty good I think (hem, sewing in cups, 4 bustles, and steam/press closer to the wedding).
Unfortunately my shoes KILLED my feet. I stood in them for 1/2 an hour and it cut into my foot so bad it started bleeding a bit. They are only 2 3/4″ heels, so now I’m wondering if I should just get flats and deal with the fact I’m short and he’s tall (honestly I don’t think 2″ is going to make a difference between my 5′ 2″ and his 6′ 4″). Also I’m sad I spent four hours dyeing my shoes that I can’t wear.
So…my question is should I look for flat sandals or just wear decorated tennis shoes? I’m kinda leaning towards sandals since I will have a pedi, but I am worried about them cutting into my feet again. I usually wear tennis shoes. What do you all think?

You can always get some bright colored chuck taylors!! 😀 I’m thinking about doing that. I say go with what makes you most comfortable. I’ll most likely end up with some sort of ballet flat.

I suggest finding a show cobbler in your area and ask them if they can stretch them out a bit for you.

That is not because of heel height, but because the shoes do not fit properly. Heels might hurt but they wouldn’t cut into your foot or make it bleed just because of height. Try a different brand or size.
If you feel a little insecure in heels but want height have you thought about trying a wedge?

Meh, the shoes cost me $10. I’m not going to cobble them. 🙂
Actually everytime I have every worn high heels with straps they cut into my feet. Pumps don’t fit my feet at all (even with something on the heel they slip off and if I go a size smaller they pinch my toes). So in order to wear heels I have to have straps of some sort around the ankle.
I’m just worried if I am on my feet for 8 hours that a heel is going to hurt because I just don’t wear them. All my sandals are flats or I wear tennis shoes. Maybe a wedge would work, I just don’t know.
I on;y have two weeks to make a descision. :-/

I’m going with a wedge then I have ballet flats for the reception just in case! My mom made me buy the wedges at the bridal store because we forgot to get some before the fitting LOL but I don’t mind because they are a simple white wedge sandal plus no one will see them anyway!
