I found my dream wedding shoes! They have a 4 inch heel and are Oscar de la Renta (on sale!). The weird thing is that they are comfortable on my foot, but when I wear them the back of my calves hurt. Does this happeb to any other girls? I’m not used to wearing super high heels so this is probably why. Can I train my leg to get over this? Haha.
I don’t plan on wearing these all day. Just down the aisle, to the ceremony and then for an outfit change later on. I’ll be wearing flats in between!
How high was your wedding heel?

They are stunning!
My wedding shoes were 2 inches high. Darling Husband is 8 inches taller than me so I could have gone for a higher heel but mine were comfy and a steal for only £20.
However I wore them until after the first dance, at which point I ditched them under a table and proceeded to go barefoot for the rest of the evening. I’m reasonably tall, my dress had a full length skirt, no one could tell until I told them! My feet were dirty but I had so much fun 🙂

I personally got married in flats…but I am 5’10 and clumsy so it was fine for me.
I like your plan of having a pair of flats to wear! I’m looking forward to seeing pics of those too 🙂

Yes your calves hurt if you’re not used to heels. If you go for these then have loads of practice in other high heels first. You don’t want to worry about toppling down the aisle!

manga : if you don’t wear high heels often, your calves will hurt. But not for a long time, as your muscles will get used to it!

Looks like you have about 8 months until your wedding, if your plan is to wear these for about 2-3 hours and you spend time practicing you should be totally fine!
I wear heels pretty regularly but once we get into the 4+ range my time in them is a little harder.

Thanks everyone. Do you think the heel is truly 4 inches? That’s what it says online but I’m not sure of its accurate.

I wouldn’t do them! I opted for flats (mainly because Darling Husband is only an inch taller than me), and I am so happy I did! I didn’t have to think about my shoes or feet at all until pretty late in the night, when I was just all around tired and everything hurt. They are also shoes that I can wear again to another fancy function.

manga : It does look like about a 4 inch heel to me.

I’ll be wearing 4.5 inch heels but I wear that probably 3-4 times a week so I’m used to it. I’d get them but just practice wearing heels so your legs get used to it.

Wow, those are gorgeous!!!

Well there’s no way I would wear 4 inch heels since I rarely go above, like, 1 inch! They look pretty high to me, I would believe that they are 4 inches. If you have your heart set on them then I guess just be sure to practice like PPs have said. Also consider that when you switch to flats your dress might suddenly be 4 inches too long.

I love love love these shoes! I wore a 4ish inch heel and was fine but I did change into a reception dress about an hour into my reception and changed into white wedges!

Wear the shoes- they are STUNNING!! And really unique.
Try to practice in other similar height shoes to work and at date nights when you can. I totally swapped shoes half way through the day.
THAT BEING SAID… read what others have posted about changing to flats re: your dress. Now the front of your dress will drag on the floor by several inches (as typically we don’t stand as tall either when we wear flats). I would actually recommend wearing those platform wedge sandal thingies to keep the height. Find a pair and bring them to the alternations appt with you as the other shoes to see perspectiv eon how it will look.
