    I loved my shoes!! I wore Bagdley Mischka heels around 4 inches. They aren’t super comfy but I spent a lot of time breaking them in and I didn’t even notice them until the very end of the night. I didn’t have blisters or anything, but I was tired of being in heels for half the day. I hardly ever wear heels on a regular basis too.

    I wore Nina Electra, 4.25 heel with a .75 platform.  I reguarly wear heels so the height was nothing to me.  I probably sould have broken them in, but I got lucky was able to wear it all day for 10+ hours the day of the wedding right out of the box.

    @jwdesiree:  Fellow shorty here!  I wore (and regularly wear) 5.25″ platform pumps on my wedding day.  They are SO comfortable, the platform makes them much easier to walk in and wear all day long.  Check out Qupid brand on Urbanog.com.  It might find a while to find some classy enough for a wedding (they’ve got some crazy styles out there right now) but SO worth it, and they’re NOT expensive.

    @jwdesiree:  I tried on about 4 different ones and they were all really uncomfortable, so be picky!! Zappos has free shipping and free returns 🙂

    I’m a bit on the short side (5’3) and I like the look of heels but hardly ever wear them, and our ceremony is in a park that I definitely need flats or wedges for, and that’s what I’m going with!

    Haven’t gotten my shoes yet, but right now I have my eyes on these, which might technically be sneakers. I found them after another bee shared that she wore some from the same line on her day.

    @jwdesiree:  I plan on wearing 2 different shoes. A platform high heel and a pair of flats for later on in the night. I’ll try to wear the heels all night, but I want the option of changing when my feet are killing me!

    I actually already bought both shoes, and I love them! 

    Full disclosure: I have 3 pairs of white heels that I could wear for my big day, and when the time gets closer, I will make a concrete decision.

    I wore 5″ Jimmy Choos that I bought at Nordstrom. I would recommend them. I think you need to decide what you like though and (possibly) try on shoes to find what is comfortable and pretty to YOU.

    I’m about 5’1″ and all 6 of my bridesmaids are taller (going up to 5’7″)

    I wore three pairs. 🙂 One pair of heels that kept me shorter than DH and my Dad, then after the dances, I switched into fancy sandals with a higher heel. Then, a pair of wedge sandals for the after party. Was *very* happy I had extras!

    I wore 4.25″ Badgley Michka shoes!

    I thought they were super comfy until the WAY end of the night, when I noticed one of my feet were numb!

    I didn’t think it was a big deal–until 4 days later when 3 of my toes were still numb! I think I got complete feeling back a few days after that. Worth it!

    @jwdesiree:  I wore cowboy boots, they were a gift from DH on a trip we took to Austin and the design is so beautiful. I love, love heels and DH is over a foot taller than I am, so I struggled with the decision. I went with the boots for sentimental and practical reasons though.  We had an outdoor wedding so they just made more sense, and turned out to be a great choice for comfort, and even if I wore 4 or 5″ heels it would not have made a significant dent in our height difference.  Also, because I already had them they were very budget-friendly.
