Hello all! I was wondering about wearing either flats or heals on the wedding day. I’m short, 5’0 and my fiancé is 6’0 which is why I wanted to get heels to add some height. My only issue is I hate how uncomfortable heels are and I don’t wear them often so I dont walk that great in them, although if I get heels I would get some practice before hand. Having an extra couple inches would be nice so I don’t look so short in my dress. However I do like the idea of flats purely for comfort. Anyone else have this issue or opinion on this? Thank you!!!

I think you have to decide what is more important here, comfort or hight? There are some comfortable shoes out there that will give you some hight you just have to shop around. I normally like open toe shoes and my rule is the higher the higher the platform the more comfort you will get. A lot of people think super high heela will kill there feet but if you have enough support it wont be so bad. My feet normally hurt with straps in the front because my feet get squished against the strap and it rubs or when the platform is smaller because it is really making my foot bend.

I’m having this dilemma as well
i actually told my Fmil that I wanted to wear flats and she freaked out and said it was trashy and indicated mental problems

I wore flats. Comfort was a priority for me and I feel the same way about heels you do. That being said my hubbie is only 3-4″‘ taller than me so height wasn’t an issue. In your case I would wear heels for the ceremony and formal pics – I do think wearing heels will look better in the pics. Then change into flats for the rest of the night.
I spent less than $100 on my wedding shoes. Unless your wearing a shorter dress you’re shoes aren’t something that most will notice.

You could always go with a lower heel or a platform heel, both of which are way more comfortable/easier to walk in. I wouldn’t worry too much about the height thing and just go for comfort.
