    I’m in the same boat as you, it seems. I’m getting married on the lake ground near a barn, where the reception will be. I want the height of a heel but the ease of walking on the uneven terrain that flats provide. so as of right now i’m thinking of buying wedges.

    However, in response to your question, I actually think cute flats might be best, but that’s simply an opinion based on the fact that heels can easily get stuck in the ground. Sorry I can’t be more helpful! Good luck with the shoe search! Can’t wait to see what you decide!

    I would urge you to think about what the floor of the barn looks like.  Does it have small cracks between the boards?  I got married on a covered bridge, and my heels got stcuk in the boards during rehearsal!  I fell over backwards!  During the wedding, I had to make sure I was walking in the middle of the boards.  It made things a little difficult.

    I’m getting married in a rustic log cabin and I am wearing flats. I chose flats because while I think heels look nice, it was more important to me that I be comfortable on my wedding day.

    Have you considered using something like SoleMates?  http://www.thesolemates.com/  If you decide you want heels or find some you love they can be great!  I ordered a pair and they give the heel about three times the surface area so they won’t sink in the ground and make it easier to walk on uneven surfaces.  I’m getting married outside too and couldn’t decide on a pair of flats or wedges I liked so these are my life saver!

    Just a thought!
