    I wore really tall shoes for the ceremony and put flat flip flops on for the rreception because I fell walking down the aisle in my tall shoes LOL. The dress was on the ground but I just lifted it when I needed to walk. It really wasn’t a huge deal. I was also slightly taller than my Darling Husband when we said our vows/ kissed but I don’t think you could even tell that much. I’ll post a few photos… hang on =)

    I don’t see why it wouldn’t be feasible to change if you want to! You’ll just have to put someone on shoe duty so that neither pair gets lost…

    @ellbell921:  Thank you! Yeah I figured the photos would help, I went through this too before the wedding but when the day came I took the shoes off without a second thought. As long as you lift the dress when you walk around it’ll be fine! =D

    I did get a few photos caught of me walking around holding onto my dress but I don’t think that it looks bad: (also the height difference after the shoes)

    @ellbell921:  My Fiance is just 3-inch taller than me, and he will probably wear shoes with 1-inch heels (just typical men’s dress shoes). So originally I planned to wear 4-inch heels. But after watching the video that our dance teacher shot for us when we’re practicing our first dance, I found I looked bigger than him when I was wearing 3.75-inch heels.

    (My street size is 0 or 2, and my Fiance usually wear a size M in american brands. So it should not be possible that I’d look bigger than him, but it did happen!! And I believe I’d look even bigger in a wedding gown…)

    So now, my plan has been changed. I’ll probably wear 2.5-inch heels in the wedding…

    My suggestion is… Why don’t you wear the shoes you like and take some pictures with your Fiance to see how it looks like? I wore 4-inch heels and stood in front of a mirror with my Fiance, and it looked fine, but it even didn’t work out in front of the camera when I was wearing lower heels…
