I’m not engaged yet (close, though) and plan on wearing flats. I’m only 5’3” and my SO is 5’5.5” and is very much like yours in that he doesn’t care if I wear heels and am taller, but I don’t like wearing heels if I can avoid, plus I’m having more and more pain all over my body.

I just discovered these today and the price alone has made them to most serious contender ever for my shoes.

I wore flats! I’m also 5’8″ and I dont mind wearing heels and being an amazon, but I got married on grass and my feet always hurt in heels. I wanted to be comfortable and dance all night! I wore these which I got for like $40 cad.

I’m wearing flats! And I’m only 5’4, lol. I just can’t do heels. Total disaster. I know I’ll feel much more comfortable in flats. My fiance isn’t super tall (5’9) so there’s not a huge height difference anyway.

I’ve seen a lot of really pretty flat evening sandals lately in the stores – delicate metallic straps, rhinestones/beading, etc.

I’m pretty close to my fiance’s height (5’9″ to his 5’11”) so I can’t wear much of a heel without being taller than him.  Not terribly fond of heels to begin with – I have weird pinky toes so most pairs are super painful for me, and because I don’t wear them that much, I’m not that good at walking in them anyway.

However, when I needed some nice heels for something, the shoe salesman brought me out some pumps made by Walking Cradles, and holy shit they are the most comfortable heels I’ve ever worn.  I could walk for miles in them without killing my feet.  I decided I would get the same brand for my wedding shoes.

I wanted either a flat or low heel, both to be comfortable and not be taller than my finance.  I ended up with these: https://walkingcradles.com/collections/dress-shoes/products/heidi-white-leather-new

They have a low, broad heel that makes them comfy and super stable.

The flats in this brand weren’t particularly elegant, so I didn’t go with them.  The type of pointy elegant flats I’d want are exactly the type of shoe that hurt my little toes, hence going with the comfy but still elegant low-heel pump.

I’m wearing these because I want to be comfy, and I think they’re amazing:

We got married in a park outside (lots of grass) so I wore these : https://www.badgleymischka.com/hampden/

Badgely Mischka has a nice selection of fancy sandals- if you’re looking for something more formal.   Congratulations!

I wore low heels for my ceremony then switched into these Badgley Mischka flats (Gigi).  I loved them!  They look nicer than the pic looks.

So I tried really hard to talk myself into heels. but it was an outdoor wedding, and I’ve sprained both ankles/feet in the last 8 months. In fact, when I HAD to make a decision, I had injured my foot so badly, that I knew my only option were flats. The other thing was, I really wanted to be comfortable. So I bought a pair of Love shoes by Ellen that were part of the theme (andh ad them for our engagement shoot), and a pair of sparkly keds for the reception. Both were comfortable and I have no regrets.
