Your fiance can also wear men’s latin dance shoes (when worn, they just look dress shoes).  They have cuban heels, which are approx 1" high.  If he’s not comfortable with the idea of wearing heels, check out pictures of Jason Taylor (NFL Football Player) and Mario Lopez on Dancing with the Stars.  They look hot, the shoes improve posture, and no one thinks "he’s wearing heels!"

You can also wear gladiator style flats.  There are tons of bejeweled beauties out there that are so appropriate for weddings.

I’m obsessed with flats- I would try piperlime.com or nordstrom.com and search for fancy flats- you didn’t mention what color you wanted- like off white or metallic or whatever, but they have great selection. . .

My best tip is to use the "search" function at zappos.com and select flats to search through endless options. I really only wear flats (at 6’1) and my wedding shoes were Shannon Britt’s olivia.

You’ll definitely be able to find something out there!

Also check out J.Crew.  They usually have at least one style of ivory satin flats.  I was able to find what I thought was impossible… flats with an open toe!

I wore flats as well:

When they arrived I thought they might be uncomfortable, but they were super easy to break in and I thought they were great–they can also be dyed if you like (heel height is .25"–that’s about as low as it gets besides a ballet shoe)
