I’ve been putting off the wedding shoe search because I can’t really wear super cute shoes for the wedding. Why? Because I can’t wear super cute shoes in general right now! I have plantar fasciitis in my feet (which makes wearing heels or slides excruciatingly painful) AND smashed up my knee pretty badly a few weeks ago, so wearing any type of shoe without a good comfortable support (including most flats and flip flops) basically has me in tears, sitting on the floor, within about 5 minutes.
So…I think I found a shoe (http://www.bornshoes.com/Product.aspx?ProductID=5285), but I’ve been looking online for so long that I do not trust my judgment at this point. What do you think? Is it fancy enough for a wedding? (My dress is pretty formal, and it’s floor length so no one will see the darn shoes anyway) If you think they’re no good do you have any other suggestions??

They are perfect! I am wearing a pair of ballet flats, purely for comfort! No one will see them, like you said.

I have high high heels that I’m prepared to dance the night away in – plus walk down the isle in but there are these foldupable ballet pumps that are going to be stashed away if my feet start to die!!

I love Born shoes and totally recommend them. I say wear them! By the way, try to find them somewhere besides Born’s website (to save some money). Try 6pm.com, shoebuy.com, maybe Amazon.com.

I’m all for having comfortable shoes for the wedding. I’ve worn way too many uncomfortable shoes for many events and I don’t want to go through that pain again. Your dress is floor length, then not many people will see your shoes anyways. And if they do, they’re cute shoes!! 🙂

I think these are great. I have a really hard time with shoes because I have a super high arch- and super pain in the ball of my foot. The only shoes I can wear… are Birkenstocks. I am not even kidding you!! 🙁 Luckily, Birks, in Germany, come in a zillion really cute styles, so I was able to find some silver dressy ones. But, literally, – I feel your pain! I think those are great if they are comfortable for you and you like them- do what is right for your feet. Your dress is so long, no one will really see those puppies anyway.

I like them a lot and think they’d be great! Love the flower details–so feminine! Also, try Zappos & Shoebuy.com for lower prices too. If you sign up with Shoebuy.com for emails, they send out coupons ALL the time, so you can def save a lot!
EDIT: Just saw Masala already suggested shoebuy.com and some other good sites too!
