I have my dress and shoes picked- a tea length dress and cute little blue/green pumps with 3 inch heels. Only problem is, though these shoes are supposed to be very comfortable as far as high heels go they really do hurt my feet. I could probably count the times that I’ve worn heels on one hand and I’m nearly 30 now so I’m guessing it’s probably just that I’m not used to wearing high heels… That being said, I would really LOVE to keep the shoes I picked as my wedding shoes and have been practicing for at least 10-15 min almost everyday and I still have a LONG time to go before the wedding but I’m thinking I might need to get a second pair of shoes to change into after the ceremony and pictures… the question is, how short can I go without looking weird since my dress is tea length?? I’m thinking I can’t do flats because I feel flats with tea length dresses makes people look really short and I’m already short enough (5’3”) but what do you all think???

I’m planning on wearing a tea length dress and flats. I’m 5’2″ on a good day and my SO is over 6′. I don’t think it looks weird at all.

hemmm… i could go flats 🙂 another friend of my also suggested flats too. Maybe I am all wrong about flats. Wedges would also work! Def tons easier than heels. Thanks for the input ladies! 🙂

Judging by your icon picture, you and I have the same wedding shoes. Hey Lady “At Tiffany’s”, right?
Their shoes run SO small. I had to return the first pair b/c they were 1/2 size too small, and even the new ones were snug.
Start by putting rubbing alcohol on the insides and then wearing them around the house with thick socks on. It sounds crazy, but I promise they will loosen up after just a few times.
You could also take them to a shoe repair place and they will stretch them for you and help you pick out cushions for the balls of the feet if you need them.
Hope that helps! You sound like me… I’m too stubborn to give them up!

I think you could go down to a cute pair of kitten heels and pull it off. That height is so sweet and retro and would look smashing with a tea length dress. I actually had a tea-length skirt that I used to wear (back in my skinny days, lol) with the sweetest kitten heels and I always got compliments on them. 🙂 For reference, I’m 5′ 1/2″, and I would much rather be comfortable than tall on my wedding day!

I agree comfort is the way to go!! I originally wanted to get some mary jane kitten heels or peep toes to go with my tea length dress but ended up finding some glitter and lace high heeled peep toes but I think I’m definitely going to look for some ballet flats to wear with the gown at the reception for when my toes get tired!
