Just wondering what height heels you gals are wearing with your dresses. My dress is heavy and it has a big full skirt, so I think I’m going with a respectable but fun 41/2 inches. Affords me height and movement – I think 6 inches would make me too wobbly under all of that fabric, lol. (Though I do wear 6 inch sitllettos on a fairly regular basis)
So what are you ladies going with?

@MissHelen: Every woman in my family is like 5’9 – 6’0. Me? I’m 5’2″ lol. It’s funny in pictures.

I am wearing a ball gown. I am fairly short – so the thought of wearing heels has run through my mind. (Considering my FI is nearly 6ft and I am just 5’2) BUT I have never worn high heels over 1 inch and when I have I walked very akward. I havn’t had much practice with heels becuase I aviod them and don’t have any. I wish I could pull off heels – I really do. But I would be paranoid the whole time. So I am just going to wear really cute dance slippers 🙂
I don’t plan on anyone seeing my feet anyways! (Except for when we do the garter throw)
If you feel uncomfortable in any way with heels don’t wear them. But if you are worried about stumbling, don’t worry about it! I am not sure if you have been fitted yet or not – but once your dress is hemmed there shouldn’t be a problem with any fabric getting caught in your heels. Good luck 🙂

6 inch heels! holy crap, my 4 inchers are the most I could possibly do. I’m wearing my 4 inch heels for as long as I possibly can and then changing into something a bit shorter if my feet start to hurt. I’m only 4′ 11″ btw, I really need the height 🙂

Wow, I’m impressed that you wear 6 inchers so often! I’m not sure I could even do 4 1/2!!

Mine are 3 in. I was looking for 2 or 2.5 but the shoes I liked best were 3in. I am wearing them a bit to see if I can pull it off. I may have to buy lower or flats to change into, but I haven’t found them yet.

I wore 2.5 inch heels and a cocktail length dress.

I have a short FI, so I’m going with flats, too :). Even if he was tall, though, I wouldn’t go over three inches so I could be comfortable all night.

Mine were 3 1/2 and that was pretty high for me!! I can’t really do 4″ and I can’t even imagine 6″!!

Mine are 3″ and I am so scared b/c I never wear heels. I need to get them from the shop tomorrow to start practicing!!

Mine were 4″ and I wore an A-line dress. I didn’t think I’d be able to keep them on the whole night, so I had a pair of 3″ wedges in reserve, but didn’t end up using them.

i think mine were 3.5… 3.75… the nina ulexas… they were the perfect height… a couple of inches shorter than FI and still walkable without trippin over my dress! 😀

Mine are about 4 1/2, I believe.
