    I would go with the flats.  you can find some really cute ones out there!  I’ll try and post the ones I’ve found later bc I’m not on my home computer.  I had knee surgery (and will have one more before my wedding) so it looks like I’ll be stuck with the flats as well but I think it will be worth it to not have any problems with my knee (and to be comfortable during the wedding as well:))

    It’s really up to you. I voted a small heel as it makes a huge difference to your posture and how your dress looks.

    I’d say flats for sure… If you’d feel uncomfortable with the height difference and you’d just get plain dizzy… I wouldn’t risk it. 

    You want to be at 100% on your wedding day!

    I’m going for flats too – I have issues with my hip and wearing heels never helps. I want to enjoy my wedding day to the max so i’m going with flats.

    I’ll go with the flats… I’m sure you don’t want to have any uneasy moment (dizzy or others…) on your big day.  However, it’s really up to you.

    I would choose flats.  It sounds like a safety concern for you because you’ll be excited, stressed, running around, dancing etc.

    Some girly part of me deep down says I should go for something like a 1.5″ heel.

    The practical me is thinking flats, for the stability benefit, and since Fiance and I are pretty much the same height.  I always fall over in pointy heels, but small wedge-heels I am fine with.  

    I’d probably go with the heel, if only for not having to do the hemming.  Besides, men’s dress shoes usually add about an inch or so in height, so the difference probably won’t be as drastic.

    i’d go with the 1.5 heel. flats are always more comfy, but even the smallest heel naturally gives you better posture and makes you stand straight up and tall- which i think is a must when all the attention is on you!

    I’d go with the heel, but I could see it either way.  Sometimes finding the perfect shoe is a little hard, so why not browse for both and see where it takes you? 🙂

    I said other. Why don’t you go with the heel for the ceremony? You can literally put them on right before you walk down the aisle. And take them off right after. 

    Like other posters have said, it will give you better posture during the ceremony when you aren’t thinking about standing up straight. 

    For formal pics and the reception, you can wear flats. You will be the same height as your Fiance for the pictures and you will be comfortable.
