    @Anna22:  I had to pick ugly only because they are not really my style, but “ugly” isn’t the best word to describe them.  I think it depends on your dress, your style, etc.  Personally, I think they are a little chunky for a wedding.  I would prefer something sleeker, more feminine.  But like I said, it about what you like.

    I feel like they’re a little too chunky.

    They’re not ugly but I chose ugly because they’re kinda chunky looking for my taste.  I think they’re kinda badass for other stuff just not something I’d wear in a wedding

    i can’t believe your grandma picked those out.  i was expecting hushpuppies or something.

    they don’t look like they will be super comfy all wedding day.  that’s my concern for you.

    @mypinkshoes:  I agree! Grandma’s taste is alot more up-to-date than I imagined. I would be terrified if my grandma bought my wedding shoes.

    I would suggest maybe wearing the shoes for the ceremony so grandma can feel like she had a special part in it and change shoes for the reception. Will your wedding dress be covering it?

    Will your grandmother be upset if you don’t wear them?

    My thinking is that we’re all going to look back at our photos in 20 years and think, “Wow, those are some dated shoes.” It’s not to say that we don’t have great style now, it’s just that style changes so quickly. In 20 years moon-boots might be all the wedding rage, you know? So, it might not be worth it to upset your grandmother now for shoes that might be dated later. 

    On the other hand, you should be comfortable and happy. Maybe you need two pairs of wedding shoes! (C’mon, more shoes is never a bad thing.)

    @Anna22:  I’d be afraid of clomping down the aisle.

    I don’t think they’re ugly but I agree that they’re chunky. Not necessarily a bad thing, I just personally perfer shoes with thinner heels and a thinner or no platform.

    They’re not my taste but I agree with @lindseyl06:  maybe you could wear them for your ceremony and then change to more comfortable shoes that are more your taste for reception 🙂

    Very sweet gesture but I’d be concerned for your safety and comfort in those on a day you’ll be on your feet most of the time. You may lose balance or miss an edge, try to get something with less or no platform.

    If you’re having a rehearsal dinner, and she’s coming to it, you can wear them then since you’ll likely be sitting and eating the whole time, if the height of them is a huge issue.
