I made it through pictures and the ceremony.  Right after the ceremony my feet started BURNING–I couldn’t take another step.  So I wore my fancy flip flops the rest of the night.  So glad I didn’t spend a ton of $$$ on my shoes:)

I don’t wear heels every day, but I did make sure to wear them at least once a week so I was working the “stiletto” muscles.

I wore flats, so I had no issues what-so-ever.  ๐Ÿ™‚

I wore heels, but they were not extremely high heels and ended up being super comfy.  I wore them from ceremony through pictures (well, had to take them off for some photos due to the terrain) and for dancing the night away.

I was really worried about this and actually ended up going with Angela Nuran shoes which are expensive but comfy. They are based on ballroom dancing shoes! I got the 2.5 inch just to be safe and I wore them from 1-10 with no problems. I ended up taking them off not because my feet were sore but everyone else was in the cute flip flops I bought them (even the guests as I had a flip flop basket for the guests too) and I wanted to wear mine ๐Ÿ™‚

I don’t wear heels on a day to day basis but do wear them often.

On my wedding day I had on 4.25″ heels and unfortunately never got around to breaking them in. They came off after the first dance, parent dances, cake cutting, etc.

I’m not married quite yet but I can guarantee my heels will come off after the ceremony. They’re super cute– 4 inch heels— but I don’t wear heels ever and even though I’ve practiced a bit and can walk in them, after about 20 min the balls of my feet ache. I plan to wear them for pictures and ceremony, then ditch them for platform flipflops.

I wore 4.25″ with a .5″ platform.  from 1pm through 11pm.  My feet hurt by dinner time but not enough for me to need to switch shoes.  I do wear heels regularly though.  I also broke in my shoes for weeks before the wedding.  I think that REALLy helped.

I wore 3.5″ heels with about a .25″ platform. I don’t normally wear heels either, but they were just so cute! I didn’t really break them in and they were pretty comfortable. I tell you it must’ve been the adrenaline from the day b/c I didn’t notice my feet hurt until the end of the night. I had those puppies on for 10 hours with a lot of walking and dancing.

My feet hurt as I was walking down the aisle. My shoes were beautiful, but awful. Luckily I had some flats to wear for the reception.

I wore a 3″ heel and wore them all day and all night. They were the Cole Haan Nike Airs. This is the only pic I have of them at the moment. They were plain, but I highly reccomend for comfort

I wore a medium heel (just under 3 inches) and I was very comfortable all night. I picked the highest heel that I know I can wear without being in pain. Over 3 inches just doesn’t work for me!

I wore ballet flats and still ended up with blisters (tops of my pinkie toes). I took them off during dinner and went barefoot until it was time to leave the reception. ๐Ÿ™‚

I wore my heels all day up until the last dance and literally couldn’t even stand anymore so I switched to my cute flats ๐Ÿ™‚

I wore 4.5″ heels and while they were very comfortable and I AM used to wearing heels, 12 hours of standing in even the most comfortable sneakers will make your feet hurt. I’m telling you though, it was totally worth it. My shoes were beautiful and they enhanced my overall bridal look, I have no regrets.
