Honestly, I didn’t think there were any heels that I would be comfortable wearing and being on my feet all day! It’s not a matter of the straps, it physically the way that heels put pressure on the balls of your feet. I’ve tried those cushion insoles and they help but my feet still get super sore after a couple hours. Especially given that I only wear heels once every couple months. So I wore flats. They were under my dress so you didn’t even really see them. Would you consider flats?

Hm, what about something like this that has a platform so you get some height but your heel isn’t actually that much higher than the balls of your feet?

Via wedding bee, I learned about Angela Nuran shoes… tried them on in a store, fell in love with their comfort level, and ordered them online. Tradesy often has discounted pairs.  Just google or search on the Bee – they’re padded and flexible, and a lot of people have had good experiences. Granted, I haven’t had my wedding yet, but I like wearing them around my house to break them in and haven’t had any discomfort so far.  Good luck!

I have bought my wedding shoes today. Let me tell you first that I have flat feet plus bunions. So I am VERY critical when it comes to comfort. I was almost about to buy a pair of sandals in Naturalizer, but the pair I liked was made of man-made leather, i.e. will never stretch to fit my feet. So… with almost no hope I checked a shoe store and found Geox shoes! They are not typical wedding shoes at all (and we even had an argument with my SO) but they will be hardly seen under my dress.

I also have feet problems and issues… I have a small heel (maybe 3-4 inches) and as comfortable as they seem so far, I will be swapping them out for my wedges. You can find some seriously cute and cheap wedges online. I got mine from Ebay, they are really cute and comfy.

shorebride105:  I bought these off Zappos and LOVE THEM.  The ivory is more champange-ish, but I like it.  Size down a FULL size (no really, trust me).

They are super comfortable IMO, and you can show off your pedicure! It was one of my requirements to have a peep-toe because of that 🙂

They’re called Myrah by Bouquets

shorebride105:  Try Clarks. They have some white heels and are typically made for comfort!

shorebride105:  Wedges would be more comfortable.  The fortunate thing about our wedding is that it is in the middle of winter in Michigan so I have decided to purchase a brand new pair of UGGs and decorate them up with some rhinestones.  Have you considered flats? Or what about having one pair of shoes for the ceremony and another for reception?  I know many brides who also just end up going barefoot.
