@Coral99:  There really is no telling.

Just be safe and bring both. You will want to wear the heels at reception anyway.

Or walk barefoot.

Ehh I dunno, I’d do wedges.  Wouldn’t want your heel to slip through the planks

ETA – sorry, I totally didn’t catch that part about no wedges!

If they are chunky heels, maybe. But most piers I’ve been on (none in Jamaica) would not work with most heels.

My wedding is going to be on a wodden deck in Mexico.  I’m doing wedges/chunky heels.  You don’t want to be walking funny or get your heel stuck in a slat.  No bueno.

There are defiently wedges out ther that are much dressier.  Avoid anything cork, woven, or espradril style (is that the right name for it?).  Or go with a chunky heel.  Since those are so in right now they are pretty easy to find, even for dressy sandals.

Invest in some Sole Mates girl! They are clear so you cant see them and they give your heel point more area so you wont get stuck in a plank!

@Coral99:  I’d pick a heel that is thicker and avoid and skinny heel. I think you would still be fine as long as you are used to walking in heels. Also a platform will give you a little more support. Just keep the heel short!


I think wedges are still your best bet thou…..they are some really fany ones out there!

Maybe something like this
