@gpiglet:  I wore short heels – only about 2 inches or so and I’m really glad I did. I walked around Manhattan for two hours after the wedding taking photos and it would have gotten really old really quickly if my feet hurt. 

If you’re not used to wearing high heels, I wouldn’t go into it thinking that you’ll be able to tough it out on your wedding day. You can actually end up with nerve damage in your feet from high or uncomfortable heels. Usually it’s temporary, but who wants that?! (I’ve had it, it’s not fun). 

If you’re really committed to wearing high heels, start wearing high heels now and getting used to it. It will make such a difference in the way your feet feel, but also in your ability to walk and not look awkward. 

Good luck!

I wore high heels over 5 inches. I changed into flats in the middle of the reception. everyone was drinking and dancing so I doubt they paid attention (not that I would’ve cared if they did)

My heels were 2.5 inches.  I can’t imagine wearing anything higher, but I pretty much never wear heels anymore since my DH is my exact same height.  I’m not used to heels, so they kill my feet.
