I work from home and have been wearing mine around the house to break them in and get used to having them on for long periods of time, but I’m thinking flip flops are a good idea. I’ve done this as a Bridesmaid or Best Man and suggested my BMs do it, so why not do it myslef??

By The Way, can I please tell you how foolish I feel walking around my apartment all day in a hoodie, PJ pants and satin d’orsays? Hehe!

I haven’t decided on shoes yet, but I know I am going comfortable. Did your flip flops make a lot of ‘flip flop noises’ when you walked around. I think the ballet shoes look comfy, but I hate the looks of them. Still looking for a cute pair of comfy shoes. Any suggestions?

I’ll definitely have some comfortable shoes on hand at the reception.  I am hoping to find some that are the same height as the heels I get… maybe platform flip flops??  I don’t know if those are actually comfortable.  But, so far both pairs of perfect shoes only exist in my mind. 🙂

I think HumarockBride was talking about wearing Uggs to her reception.  How comfy would that be???

I’ll have short heels and a short reception.  I think I’ll stay with one pair.

I think I definitely want a pair of flip flops or sandals for the reception.  No matter how comfortable my ceremony shoes are, I think I’m going to want something else so I can dance the night away!  I’m glad I’m not the only one, Mrs. Bee. 🙂

I wore three pairs of shoes throughout my day!  I had my highest heels for the ceremony and then switched into slightly lower heels for the reception but I also had these gorgeous lacy peep-toed flats to dance in, the best part was the lace on the shoes coordinated with my dress perfectly and I picked the lace ballet flats up at DSW for like $20 bucks!

My dress is long enough that I HOPE I can get away with wearing something relatively comfortable the whole time.

I’m changing into flip flops with a wedge heel…that way they aren’t too too far in height from the heels I’m wearing earlier in the day. Don’t want to be tripping all over the place. :o)

I have some cute Mary Janes for our ceremony (my Future Mother-In-Law isn’t cool with me wearing sneakers down the aisle, but that’s what the Fiance will wearing), and a cute pair of Etnies sneakers for our reception. I am ALWAYS in sneakers, can’t wear heals, and want to be comfy. Our guests will be able to see my feet the whole time (my dress is just below the knee) and although I don’t care, and my Fiance doesn’t care, I don’t want our guests to think I’m a wack job for wearing black sneakers with silver stars on them down the aisle!

@MrsLifeAccounts, was changing heel heights a problem w.r.t. to having your dress drag?  Or with the bustle is it less of a problem?  I hadn’t actually considered multiple shoes, but it sounds like a great idea!  I’ve been stressing between getting a nice long leg line and gorgeous shoes and being comfortable…especially b/c I intend to dance a lot!

I’m planning on having a change of shoes for the reception to save my feet from too much pain and suffering.  I might go for a pair of comfy flats.

I’m a two shoe bride.  I thought Fluevogs might feel a little restrictive for dancing so I got the TwoLips Talent as a backup.

I’m not sure if I’ll change since I have yet to find my shoes.  I love love love shoes though, so it may be an excuse to buy a second pair. 🙂
