Possibly.  Just remember that if there is a significant height difference between your ceremony shoes and your reception shoes, your dress will drag.  The only solution to this (or so I’ve been told) is to alter your dress length to the flatter pair of shoes.

I’d like to keep my heels on all night, but I’m currently trying to find some tall wedge flip flops to at least have just in case! I don’t want my dress to drag if I do change so that’s why I’m looking for some taller flip flops. I say go for it and at least get something just to be on the safe side.

I did!  I changed out of my high heels to similar colored flats, I hid those shoes at my place at the table in the reception so I changed into them as I sat down for dinner =)

I’m changing into wedges.  I’ll keep the height and gain some comfort!

I changed into white leather ballet flats around 10:30/11:00 pm at my reception.  I tried to make it as long as I could in my heels – but after a while I was just over it!

It was a great decision and my dress didn’t seem to drag too much at all.

I would definitely like to wear heels all night, but I know I won’t make it. Has anyone found platform/wedge flip flops?

I saw some cute ones at Pac Sun the other day! I’m not sure how tall they were i’ll have to go back and check.

I want to keep the same pair of heels all day and night. That’s why it’s important to chose comfortable shoes. I haven’t chosen mine yet, but I’m really excited to go shoe shopping!

I’ve got 4.5″ heels for the ceremony. I think once the first dance is over I’ll change into my Converses that are the same color!

I’ve suffered from wicked crippling foot pain for years whenever I spend too much time standing around, and heels exacerbate the problem, so I’m definitely going to have an attractive pair of flats around that I like and that complements my dress in case I want to change at any point during the reception. They’ll be pretty, though; I’m not into the flip-flops thing. Hopefully something I would wear again after the wedding. I’m not worried about the dress dragging since I’m only wearing ~2″ heels anyway, and the dress will be bustled by that point.
