I wear heels almost every day to work and a couple of years ago I decided that I was totally OVER uncomfortable shoes.  I only by heels that are both comfortable and cute.

My tips:

1) Alwasy buy heels that have some sort of padding in them.  The cheap ones with zero padding under your foot pad become SO UNCOMFORTABLE.

2) Don’t delude yourself into thinking that they fit.  If they don’t fit in the store, they probably never will.  I personally ahve to watch out to make sure shoes don’t squish my toes, they aren’t too small, and they don’t have any straps that dig in uncomfortably.

3) Leather is a good way to go.  Inexpensive shoes don’t breath whcih makes your feet sweaty and swollen.  Leather shoes usually do better for me. 

In terms of brands Miz Mooz is one of my personal favorites, but the styles are not exactly bridal/evening wear.  http://mizmooz.ca/collections/all-products

Didn’t know a good bunch if these, will try next time 😉 and they forgot the chunky heel= more comfortable than a stiletto (of course). As for brands/ designer I have a few Vince Camuto heels that are rather comfy.

cbgg:  I was thinking Miz Mooz but didn’t mention them since I only have a pair if high heeled boots from them, but so cozy! I felt like I was wearing flats & even walked my dogs wearing them 😛

donnawed:  I love this blog. http://www.barkingdogshoes.com/comfortable-heels

It is somewhat geared towards people with various foot issues, but as someone who has to be on their feet a lot for work, it’s nice to look through to see her reviews and learn about shoe brands that I wouldn’t otherwise normally see at my local stores. Some of them are somewhat ‘old-ladyish’ but some are really cute!

Cole Haan Nike Air and Sofft are two brands that come to mind when I think of comfortable heels.

Make sure you purchase your shoes in the afternoon when your feet are at their largest. If shoes don’t feel comfortable in the store, they never will. When you try them on, really walk around the store, not just a few feet in either direction.

donnawed:  Go for a heel that has a bit of a platform. The heel looks larger but theres actually less of an angle. Definitely go for something that is a little bit padded. I’ve always found Nine West heels to be pretty comfortable. 

Also – bring flip flops to change into, lol. I can wear heels for a couple hours (if I’m constantly on my feet) before my feet hurt. I just don’t think I am cut out for them!

donnawed:  when I replied earlier I didn’t realize for some reason you were looking for shoes for your wedding. Here’s the link for bridal shoes, I don’t know if any of these will fit your taste or not. http://www.barkingdogshoes.com/2014/03/comfortable-bridal-shoes-2.html

And here’s the link from 2013, maybe some of the styles might still be available http://www.barkingdogshoes.com/2013/04/comfortable-bridal-shoes.html

Sounds kind of crazy but look at the angle of the shoe before you buy, see how high the place for your heel is from where the ball of your foot sits. Sometimes if the shoe has a bit of a platform, you can get away with looking like you’re wearing a higher heel but actually are wearing one that’s shorter by an inch, even two 🙂
