Ok, Bees, here’s the problem…
We are getting married at a lovely, outdoor venue (200 year old plantation!). I cannot imagine NOT wearing heels on my wedding day, but I’m concerned about the sinkage factor. What did you do to prevent that?

@TroubadourTango: I haven’t personally used them, but these look neat: https://www.thesolemates.com/.

Hmmm… no idea – I would actually wear ballet flats 🙂 (and have the bridesmaids do the same~)
There are specialty products though:

I’m gonna go for a wedge to get around this but if you’re dead set on pumps you could try to get a pair with a thicker heel (no stilettos!)

Excellent idea! Those look great!
@MrsBuesleBee: I know I probably should wear a wedge or flats, but that’s just so not me. I am obsessed with Ferragamo shoes, and I really want to be able to incorporate that obsession into my wedding day ensemble. I know he makes wedges, too, but I fear my dress is a tad too formal for a wedge. Maybe these will work…

Oh I totally understand and I love Ferragamo! But even a bit broader of a heel then a pencil thin stiletto would help you not sink! I’ve heard good things about those plastic wedgies (Assumimg that’s what PP linked)
show a pic of the Ferragamos dream shoes! I visited their headquarters and museum in Italy and drooled all over myself. It was awesome.
My wedding vision is a bit hippie garden party so the espadrille wedge works for me- but I totally get having a fashion obsession you don’t want to let go of! Why should you!?

I bought those heel saver thingys that slide onto the heel and give a wider heel width for a grassy plantation/garden wedding. I think they would have worked if it had not rained twice the day before our wedding. The ground was really moist still, and the owner even asked if I wanted to move the ceremony. The entire plastic heel saver sank into the grass and came off the heel entirely. So both of them r stuck in the ground somewhere at that venue.
So IF u have a venue with nice dry ground, I think heel savers could work.
