    I didn’t, but I bought a brand of shoes that I already new that I could dance in all night long without my feet hurting.  I did have flipflops with me as that is what I wore all morning long, so they were there just in case.

    I changed into my flip flops half way into the reception. My new husband helped me take off my shoes and slip these comfy ones on. I was sooo glad I had them hidden in a paper bag under the bridal table, we just say down and no one know what we were doing. It felt so much better.

    Here’s what they look like.

    I’m not planning on it, but our venue does supply flip flops for those with sore feet so I have the option. But I’m more of one just to go barefoot – that’s what I ended up doing at prom lol

    Originally I was going to, but then a friend of mine who just got married reminded me that my dress will be hemmed based on my heel height. If I switch to flip flops, I will be walking all over my dress all night. I might just go with a nice pair of wedges to compromise 🙂

    I may seek out some of those wedge flip flops, but if I change, it’ll be stealth. I want to stay in my heels as long as I can.

    I changed into these, as much as I loved my ceremony shoes there was no way I could be on my feet for 8 hours in 5″ heels!  These wedges were shorter and my dress did drag a bit but it wasn’t a big deal.

    I had my reception dress hemmed to flip flops and bought a nice pair of flat silver sandals to change into. However, they didn’t end up in the bag with my dress so I ended up wearing a pair of Reefs from my BMs car for photos, changing back into my heels for introductions and then grabbing a pair of flip flops from my flip flop basket (in the wrong size) for the rest of the reception. I am a total flip flop girl though so not one was surprised although my mother had a good laugh at the fitting when I pulled out my flip flops for the seamstress to take measurements.

    I plan on changing into a shorter dress once all the traditional stuff is over and the “party party” starts. I’ll change shoes then. If I do change earlier, it’ll be into a nice pair wedges that are the same height so I don’t drag the hem of my dress.

    I just went barefoot once my feet started to hurt in my heels too much.  Boogie-ing on the dance floor is much easier barefoot than in foam flip-flops.

    @katwed2012: I plan on wearing ballet flats, too.  Either that or wedges for the whole day/night.
