I am torn on what I should wear. I love the way heels look and keep going back to looking for heels but I RARELY ever wear them and am so scared to fall (I am most likely walking down the aisle by myself) and I also do not want to be uncomfortable. I ordered 2 pairs of shoes (they havent arrived yet), one is a flat royal blue just because it was the only one I could find that I really liked and I figure I need something blue and then a purple pump that will match my bridesmaids dresses. Can anyone give me their opinion on shoe choices? Did you regret wearing heels? How was the dress length when the heels came off? Did you feel too casual if you wore flats?

nstrans1: Super cute shoes! I love the rhinstone detail! I have ordered a pair of 2″ heals that haven’t arrived yet. And I am also worried about wearing them all day. I plan to have a pair of flats waiting for me at the head table just incase I need some relief.

I wore heels for the ceremony and first dances with my husband and dad and then switched to platformed flip flops so my dress wouldn’t drag. No one can see under your dress anyway! I was so comfy and danced all night lol

Love your shoe choices! I love the look of heels too much not to wear them. So I will be wearing heels for the ceremony and probably the first dance like the PP, but I will change into flats for the rest of the reception so I can really “let my hair down”. Best of both worlds.

I wore heels with a modest height. I don’t ever like a heel higher than 3″. A heel improves my posture, that is a big motivator for them. Plus they are so feminine. And I can’t imagine wearing a wedding gown with flats, it would feel off to me.
I do wish I brought flats to change into for the last hour or two. I thought my shoes were sooooo comfortable I could wear them for days but nope, felt like my feet went through a meat grinder. They took 2 weeks to heal! It was really bad. So if you do wear heels, bring a pair of flats!

Im wearing flats all day. Besides the fact that I am a gazelle I wanted to be comfortable. Im not a every day heel person so I didnt want to look like a was teetering down the isle.
And since you asked for shoe options… I havent decided for sure but Ive been stuck on these Teiks for a few months now. I never felt like they were too casual, but we are getting married in Big Sur, CA so I need something I can tromp around in outside.

I’m wearing heels up until the reception starts, then I’m changing to either low wedges or flats. I bought the teal heels for $15, and I owned wedges/flats already. I didn’t care about the color so much, because they won’t be visible anyway!

If you dont normally wear heels, please do consider flats. I am a flats girl who wore heels in my brother’s wedding last year. I looked (and felt) like a baby giraffe, and am still astonished that I survived without breaking an ankle!

if you are not used to it, flats are definitely a good choice. besides, no one will see your shoes under the dress. i wore heels because i wanted to feel longer and leaner haha and plus heels usually force me to stand a little straighter. i practised wearing my heels before the day — stood in them for 2 hours while watching tv haha!

Thank you everyone!! I’m having my first fitting this Sunday and my flats won’t be here yet so I was going to try to see how I felt with the heels although, I really think I am going to go with the flats and just return the heels. They are so cute it’s going to be so sad to return them!
For anyone who wore heels then switched to flats did the dress drag a lot?

nstrans1: why don’t you wear heels for the ceremony and/or getting ready pictures, portraits Etc., and then switch over to flats during the reception and the dancing portion of the night?

I had 3.5″ heels with a very thick heel and sparkly flats to change into. I had two bustle heights made in my dress so I could pull it up higher when I changed into the flats later in the night. However my feet never got tired or sore so I wore the heels the whole time! They were wonderful. I am 5’7″ and Fiance is 6’2″ I liked being taller I think heels make you look slimmer too (if thats your goal, it was certainly mine!).
I walked alone down the aisle- a LONG grass aisle! It was fine though especially because I practiced a few times in the location prior to the wedding. You can do it! Will you be on grass or an easier surface?

If you don’t normally wear heels, I wouldn’t suggest you keep the purple ones with the high heel. You could find something with a lower, kitten style heel, that will still give you the posture from heels, but be more comfortable to wear. Then if you switch to flats there isn’t such a height difference for your dress.

I’ve tried those heels on and they were comfy. They are my color but the only reason whybi didn’t get them was because i bought other heels already. I say wear both and change out halfway through.
