    Of course you can. It’s not as if people don’t do quite major editing on some wedding pictures! But why not wear them while you get ready so you could have shots of you in your dress and the gorgeous shoes but then take them off before the ceremony?

    @IzzyBear:  I voted yes, because for me personally, I’d look at the photos after and be like ‘Oh yeah: there’s the shoes I didn’t actually wear’. If I wasn’t wearing them, they’d just lose significance for me.

    But that’s just me. I’m weird about things like this; I feel the same about brides who remove piercings/cover tattoos/ask bridesmaids to change their appearance, and about heavily photoshopped photos (eg where it was a grey, rainy day but in the futures it’s all beautiful blue skies). I want our photos to be a true reflection of the day.

    I agree with PPs who are telling you to wear them while getting ready.

    Good choice being comfortable during the ceremony! I wore high heels once as a MOH and was told that people could see me shifting back and forth for the entire ceremony (because my feet hurt). I decided right then to wear comfortable shoes for the wedding!

    Comfort is so important for the wedding.  You’re going to be on your feet pretty much all day, so I’d go with the more comfortable option.  I think it would be a great idea to include your shoes in the getting ready photos.

    You should be comfortable on your wedding day. the only issue with wearing your heels for photos will be the length of you dress. if you have alterations to fit your flats then your dress will be short for your photos! Heres what i’m doing bc i cannot wear heels either. I am wearing my heels for the ceremony and getting flip flop wedges (the foamy kind) to wear during the reception! That way my dress will not drag if i change shoes! hope that helps! goodluck!

    I did the exact same thing!  I bought expensive shoes , paid additional money to have them redesigned into a pair I saw on pinterest only to switch out to flats during reception.  Be comfy! Even though I switched my feet were so sore it kept me from falling asleep!

    @IzzyBear:  NOT AT ALL!!!! Also, this is your wedding, do what makes you happy!

    I feel the same way about heels, I can only last about 2-3 hrs depending on the heel height. So I made sure that my wedding shoes were a  good height that I can last in, but i still bought slippers to change into!

    Its your wedding do what you want! If taking pics with the shoes but not wearing them will make YOU happy then go for it! (I actually liove the idea myself)

    That’s weird to me.  The pictures are supposed to capture the day, not be a stage just to take some fancy pictures.  It sounds really superficial to me to just take pics with shoes that actually had no real function in the wedding day.  If it was at least worn for the ceremony it’s make more sense to me.

    @IzzyBear:  I say as long as you don’t look back thinking ‘oh yeah, I didn’t wear those at my wedding’ in a negative sense, why not? I don’t know about your dress but my dress is so long noone would even know if I was barefoot!
