    If no one is going to see them then they are fine. If people are going to see them then I think they are not GREAT. But shoes are a VERY personal thing and I am a 100000% advocate of comfort over style if you have to choose between the two. I do think you could find something comfy and practical that is a bit more special though (only if, as I said, anyone is going to see them!)

    Literally no one is going to see them under a long dress so they are fine. Are you wearing flats for the ceremony though? You don’t want to have your dress hemmed to a certain height in heels and then be tripping all over it when you change into sandals for the reception!

    lucyinsky :  You don’t have to sacrifice comfort for style! There are many options available that will provide both. Just because no one will see your shoes, doesn’t mean you should settle for something that you don’t like that much; after all, most people don’t see our underwear, yet we buy cute underwearsmile. These are options that you might consider, all of them are wide width:

    They’re not the most stylish thing around but they’re not ugly.  The only things I would say to consider are: 1) do they match your dress well enough and 2) do you want open sandals on a lawn?  I’m one of those people that can’t stand grass sticking to my feet so the possibility of that would drive me nuts.

    Are they the height of fashion?  Nope.  But they aren’t ugly.  I have a few pair of similar style sandals and I honestly can’t figure out what makes the three pair a PP posted that much different besides the block heel. You will never regret being comfortable.

    I understand wanting to be comfortable so why not consider flip flops? There are some nicer ones and if your dress is long no one will see. If you want to dance why not have something easy?

    lucyinsky :  I hate them but no one will see them. Comfort wins every time. Heck you could wear sneakers if you wanted.

    I’d wear them. They’re definitely not ugly.

    I wouldn’t call them fugly, and I’d wear them on a Saturday… but I wouldn’t wear them for a wedding. I think you can find comfortable and cuter. However, as others have said… no one sees them so who really cares.

    Google wedding photos and see how much you notice other brides’ shoes.  Try on your dress with the shoes and see how much of your shoes you can see when you walk around.  Only you can judge whether you’ll have regret over it or whether you’ll notice that much.

    I honestly can’t remember what any single bride’s shoes have looked like from any wedding I attended or whether I even saw them.  The only time I think I have ever remotely paid attention is when brides have posted photos after the fact and had their photographer do that photo where they stick their rings on the heel of their shoe and do a close up photo.  And honestly I always think those photos are weird af.  I’ve never understood posing your rings on random sh*t.

    Whether anyone will see is probably dependent on the skirt type. I had a big ballroom skirt and noone would have seen my shoes, which I put zero effort in to (they were a pair I already owned). If it’s a narrow skirt they might be a bit visible sometimes  But I can only remember the shoes one bride wore at her wedding and that was because they were bright red and she made them a feature  If they’re comfy and you are happy with how they look with your dress I wouldn’t worry.

    I would purchase something I would wear again at other functions or just to wear outside.  I personally wouldn’t purchase them whether if guests will see them or not.  I don’t like it.  That’s just my personal opinion.

    lucyinsky :  I think they’re fine! For my first wedding, I literally wore the ugliest sandals because they were SO comfy. No one saw them and my feet were happy all day long. I changed into something nicer for the ceremony (mainly because I had my dress hemmed for a 1 inch heel & I didn’t want to trip on my dress walking down the aisle lol).
