MsBeer :  I splurged on expensive and gorgeous kitten heels from Rainbow Club which were super comfy when you try them on. I thought there would be no way that kitten heels could be uncomfortable and that they were very well made. On my wedding day, 14 hours later they were ruined and my feet were in a fair amount of pain, and I forgot to get any photos of them. I still adore them and they were the perfect princess shoes, but from a sensible standpoint I wish I had bought sparkly flats from Primark.

I wore some very pretty little sandals. No Regrets! I was able to dance and have fun with everyone with out my feet hurting! The only thing that arose was putting the penny in my shoe… We had to get a little creative with tape to make it stay there! lol

I regretted wearing heels.  Pretty strongly.  Wished I had worn flats. 

I was thinking about the posture heels give, but I have pretty good posture anyway, didn’t need ’em.  And, I decided that heels might give you posture in the short term, but in the long term, over the course of a long day, they cause fatigue that can actually make bad posture.

I don’t regret wearing flats at all. I splurged on my flats so that they still felt special and delicate etc.

I wore some sparkly Kate spade flats. my husband is literally the EXACT same height as me so heels were out of the question. I was a little disappointed at first but I’m SO glad I didn’t wear heels.. I was so comfy all night and danced like crazy!

You’re going to be in your shoes for HOURS AND HOURS, with lots of standing, dancing etc… I think comfort should be number 1 priority. On this day of all days, you need comfy shoes! I wore sandals with a tiny 1 inch (maybe less!) block heel and have no regrets. You can see my shoes a little bit in maybe a handful of pics but that’s it. I’d have died in heels. Plus I’m 5’7″ too and while my DH is a couple inches taller than me, two of my bridesmaids are like 5 inches shorter than me, and my dad is the same height. I didn’t want to tower over them!

MsBeer :  He’s 6’5? Good lord I’d need stilts! Hahahaha! DH is 5’10 and I’m still at his shoulder!!

But no, definitely would not regret wearing flats! I wore a pair of heels that I already owned for my wedding because I knew they’d be comfy. Otherwise I might have chosen flats regardless of being vertically challenged!

I had low chunky heels, probably only about 2 inches high.  My dress was long so you didn’t see them at all and my bridesmaids and I did not do the shoe picture that’s all over Pinterest.  I actually kept my shoes on all night.  My feet were sore by the end but I expected that.  Overall I don’t regret not wearing higher heels at all.

I’ve already talked to my fiance about this and I will absolutely be wearing heels, tall heels. He is 6′ 3″ and I am 5′ 0″. I am unsure if I’ll have a second, more casual reception dress, but it would be nice to wear lower heels with that dress when we go around to speak with everyone. Not sure if we’ll do dancing, kinda hate that. Lol whether there’s pain or not, I am so short. I know I’d regret it if I opted to wear something for the sake of comfort. I have boots, sneakers, and glam designer heels. No in-between for me. Lol

I wore flats and didn’t even think to have regrets about it! I don’t normally wear heels, anyway. My shoes were very cute (and bridal), and I was comfy all night.

I wore kitten heels for the ceremony and was barefoot the rest of the night. No regrets.
