kb123 :  You will not look strange. Rock the flats! be comfy! ORRR just wear heels for the ceremony them kick them damn things off and rock some flats! =)

I bought heels for my wedding and during the first look photos they cut into the back of my heel. I wore flats the rest of the night, no one knew, no one asked, and I was comfy!

You should wear whatever makes you feel most comfortable and confident. I never wear heels in regular life (I have lower back issues), so there was no question about me wearing flats for the wedding. No regrets!

Im not wearing heels, simply because I had foot surgery a year ago and my foot still hurts. Most of the time noone even sees your feet, I wouldnt fret over it…wear what you love and what you feel comfortable in!!

Im 5’4 and my fiance is 6′

kb123 :  Same situation here, to a T– my mom insists I wear tall heels to even out our 5’2″ and 6’3″ height difference, and I’m like mom, people know I’m short. We’re not fooling anyone by putting me in Victoria’s Secret model stilettos. Stick to your guns and wear flats– you’re going to look marvelous.

I’m wearing crazy tall heels for a few pictures and then ditching them for flats! The last thing I want to do is twist my ankle and not be able to do the things I want on my honeymoon. 

My mom hasn’t been very involved in my planning, but she keeps insisting a wear a necklace even though I’ve told her multiple times I’m wearing earrings, a bracelet but NO necklace. It’s not even that we have an heirloom necklace that’s important to her!

Haha you will NOT regret wearing flats!  I sure don’t regret it; I was able to wear the same shoes all day long!  Plus, I have been able to re-wear them because I never wear heels ever.

Why would you consider wearing heels if you dont like them and arent comfortable in them? If your Fiance is used to you without heels, wouldnt it be weird for both of you guys if you were suddenly super tall on your wedding day?

I wore glittery white flip flops on my wedding day 😁 In a floor length dress who the heck sees your shoes anyways?!? Comfort over fashion any day IMO!

I wore high “wedding” sandals. Basically flats, elevated like 3.5 inches. SO comfy, cost me like $5, gave me some height, and were basically just perfect. I highly recommend them! 

ETA: I suggest them because it might be a good compromise with your mom. Wear whatever you’re most comfortable in! Flats are totally fine!

I also basically never wear heels. So I decided to wear flats on my wedding day and was so glad I did! My feet didn’t hurt at all 🙂 The last thing you want on your wedding day is to not be able to dance and have fun because your feet are so sore.

I’m definitely wearing flats, no question. There are so many flats out there that look very “bridal.” Cute and comfortable, all the way.

I would wear flats. Actually, I am going to wear flats at my wedding too. Maybe wear heels for some of the photos to appease your mom.
