So I have the dress…now onto the accessories. See the post below to get an idea
I’m having an outdoor reception and i’m a little nervous about what shoes to wear. I’m 5’2″ on a good day and FH is almost 6 ft. Will this be an issue in pics if I wear flats and will I look more like a little kid? i’m having a hard time picturing a wedding dress with flats. I like the idea of wearing them because then I might be worrying less about tripping and sinking in the grass.
I have found some cute wedges however, they are a little pricy and might not work with my arches. (I’m a problem, I know). I like these because they are more wedding-y and make me feel taller. Also no sinking.
Option 3, by any heel and get heel stoppers. This = taller, no sinking but maybe a little foot pain 🙂
Any ideas or even dress/shoe pics???

What do you usually wear when you are out? I am a fan of wearing a heel for the ceremony, pix and dancing and then a more comfy shoe for everything else… but I am 5’4″ and M is 6′ so I always feel tiny and girlie when standing next to him with lower heels, however whenever I wear heels I’m still not his height so I guess it’s really what you’re most comfy with.

So I was uncoordinated a couple days before my wedding and walked into a cement wall and caused some damage to my pinky toe, which happened to be where the strap of my wedding shoes went, ouch. Luckily they had a low heel and I could easily switch over to flats with no straps but my BM wore heels and the groomsmen are tall. You can decide for yourself how goofy it looks, it’s definately something we got a bit of a kick out of once we saw the pictures, but for me I wouldn’t have wanted to try and do heels with that toe, I would have been miserable.

I wore flat sandals outside. I didn’t sink in and they still looked “nice” but really, you got a long dress on, so who gives a poop? Wear whatever won’t hurt your feet all night long!!! I’m 5’11” and DH is 5’10” so I didn’t want to wear heels or tower over my bm’s.

Wear whatever you think youll be most comfortable in! You can always wear heels just for the pictures!

I am 5’2″ FI is 6′ also and I think I am going for flats due to comfort – I have bad feet problems too!
So go with what is more comfortable and remember that you will be in them for up to 8 hours!

I would get heels with the heel stoppers for the ceremony and pictures… if they are good shoes, you might be able to wear them for dancing and the rest of the reception. 🙂 I think you should wear not only what’s comfortable, but also what makes you feel cute. 😉 I don’t feel cute in flats (and I’m a lot taller than you are ;), but if you do, then maybe that’s the best bet?

I’m also having an outdoor reception, and I’m probably going to do heels for the ceremony, and flats for the reception. Do what you’re most comfortable in, because it would suck to have hurt-y feet at your wedding. (Sorry, it’s Friday night, not feeling that good with the words!).
Those Dessy flats are cute. I wish they came in more bright colors, though!

Hehe…I’m glad I’m not the only one who has height issues 🙂 Makes me feel better!
bvig-thanks for posting the pic, that really did help. PS-I love your BM dresses!
marigold-I keep coming back to those stoppers so maybe I will do both and that way I get the best of both worlds!
jduck-Thank you! They look comfy too! Yah, they should come in more variety.
Thanks everyone! I will post pics when I get my final products. I’m soo excited to buy shoes!

Wear whatever you’re most comfortable in, and if you can wear one pair for the whole day, even better.
