Seems do-able, and looks nice. You will have someone to hang on to, right?

ETA: I should try reading the whole post before I respond. Well, I guess it depends on how you feel walking in the dress & shoes. Still seems okay though.

As long as you’re not too drunk and your shoes are too high and spikey, I think you’ll be fine. That’s a really prettyu area!

That’s a gorgeous setting, I would take the risk! 🙂 No, but seriously – I don’t think you have to worry. Especially as you’re not planning to wear a floor length dress. I’ll wear a tea length myself and I’m actually planning to walk to church 15 min away from where I’ll get ready.

I walked down stairs in a MASSIVE dress and I didn’t fall.  But I was super nervous.  Our ceremony had to be moved inside last minute so it wasn’t planned.  Luckily, I got one practice run and it was okay.

Is there a railing at least?

At the wedding venue I worked at the ceremonies took place in a similar amphitheatre setup, but with stone steps. So I saw many, many brides go down the steps and there was never an issue. They all were escorted down the stairs by someone though, which may have made it slightly easier. But I still think you will be fine as long as you take it slow, especially since you are wearing a short dress and won’t have a long train dragging behind you. Just don’t wear too high of heels.
