When i say ballet shoes i mean the real canvas ballet shoe you dance in, not ballet flats. I’ve been dancing for about 18 years…so ballet shoes are comfortable to me. Whenever i try on dresses and the dress is alittle too long they all say “oh you’ll be wearing heels” i wasnt planning on it.
Do you think that its too casual or unusual to wear them on your wedding day?? My dress will be long so they will be covered and i would most likely take heels off for the reception anyway (and we plan on walking to our reception site, which is about a block away).
I suppose i could wear heels to the ceremony and just change before we leave to go to the reception, but i would rather my dress be altered barefooted because if i did take my heels off the dress would still be too long. I would rather not be tripping over my dress all night.

No, I think it’s pretty, AND it’s personal to you, which is important. It’s your day – wear whatever the heck you want! I’m wearing flats my whole reception, and I would wear them during the ceremony if I didn’t need a little extra height with my dress.

I think they would be a perfect accessory for your wedding day.

I would have to say no, but not because they arent appropriate. They have no arch support at all and such thin sole its more like being barefoot. Ive danced ballet and pointe for years, and there is no way i would wear them. they are comfortable to dance in, yes, but not to wear as shoes. they simply arent designed for that. i wouldnt want to wear them for 8-10 hours straight.

I have to agree with ClairDarling. I don’t know what your dress looks like so I can’t say if it’s too casual to wear with it, but I will say it’s unusual to me. I would notice it – but then again I was a dance teacher & have been dancing since I was 3 – so other people might not notice.
Most industrial dance floors aren’t built the same as studio floors – there’s not as much give & structure to the flooring itself. You might kill your arches. Plus most dance floors for venues are often highly shellacked & with your soft-shoes on you’ll be slipping all over the place.
A friend of mine changed for her reception & wore a pair of white Dansneakers & put lace in for the laces – it was really cute
