Unless you’re basically prancing or walking super-fast, you’ll end up sinking in…it’s inevitable. ๐Ÿ™ Wedges are definitely your best bet if you don’t like flats.

No problem. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Also, check out Zappos–they have some awesome blue shoes that are relatively inexpensive.

I am thinking about putting some particle board down under an aisle runner.  We just need to pull it up right after the ceremony.  I’m switching to wedges for reception.

yup, @Statutory Grape: hit it dead on.  I wear heels constantly and end up airating the ground whenever I walk across it regardless of how I walk…. unless it’s drought-time, then it doesn’t matter ’cause the ground is hard as rock!!! LOL!

you could go with the chuncky-style heels (think Mary Janes) and those would be fine.  just NOTHING with stiletto-type heels.  the narrow, thin heels act like nails and you’ll sink.

I’m going to be having an outside wedding as well and won’t feel like swapping shoes (the ceremony site is cemented, reception area is NOT… figures, doesn’t it?).  I’ll end up wearing sandals with a wedge-type heel.  (no flat shoes for me, otherwise I’ll fall flat on my face.)

I never even thought of Mary Janes–duh! Basically, as Ryna said, anything with a wider heel will work well.

I did okay with an inch 1/2 heel that was just a little bit thicker than the average high heel. If I wanted to sink into the grass (which I did to prove my point to my mother that the shoes she found for me wouldn’t cut it) I could have. She then told me “stop walking on your heels” and that worked out fine!

I think as long as you aren’t doing the typical high heel or stilettos you will be okay.

I purchased soulmates for my upcoming Sept 5 wedding and have practiced walking around the yard, so far no problems.

i guess this isnt the looke your going for,but trying some sort of an aisle runner would definitely allow you to wear heels.
