Last summer my sister got married in Black Forest, CO at a pretty park (just north of Colorado Springs). Due to her lack of wanting to communicate details for the day–still don’t understand that–all of us BMs found out we’d be hiking around the forest and not just the park that had lots of great spots for photos–wearing heels. So you can imagine how hard it was for us to hike up dirt and pine needle covered hills in 3" heels! My sister was wearing cute little decorative white flip flops so it didn’t bother her.
Are any of you getting married where the terrain is crappy? If so, what are you wearing for shoes that don’t look like house shoes?!

I’m having an outdoor wedding in hilly terrain, and my coordinator said I should make sure my shoes have a chunky heel!!

i’m getting married up in the mountain and just ordered a set of SoleMates to wear with my shoes so they wouldn’t sink…

There are the shoes I got…a nice flat rubber sole, because:
a) I don’t normally wear heels, so they aren’t very comfortable
b) I’m tall enough, I don’t want anymore height
c) I also want to have pictures all over, and I’m not a fan of sinking heels in the ground!
d) they are only $19, and come in black or white (they did have pink and lime green awhile ago)!
How about buying a second pair for the hiking? Then slip in and out of them for photos that would show shoes?

I would probably wear cute shoes for the ceremony/reception and boots or something similar to hike up the hill.

I’m getting married outdoors on grass, where heels sink. I don’t feel comfortable in heels anyways, so my plan is to go barefoot, and my friend has offered to lend me some white sandals for later in the day. =)
