Hmm, well I know that I feel better in heels, but that doesn’t mean you will – and I’m guessing your consultant was thinking along the lines of she stands straighter in heels, looks better, etc, but she didn’t think through that the same might not apply to everyone. But you’re the bride, and aching feet if that’s not what you want will only make you look miserable in pictures. So go with your instinct! Also, those are cute shoes. πŸ™‚

I say rock the flats you lucky tall lady! As a petite bride with a tall groom I’ll be wearing 4.25″ heels – mainly for the pictures :o) But if you two look balanced already I would wear the foot-friendly-flats!!

I can’t imagine how heels would improve your posture. That’s opposite of everything companies like Chaco and Earth tell you. Wear the flats since you can (they’re really cute btw) – lucky you! If you want good posture take up yoga and go to a chiropractor. Most tall girls I know do slouch – Fiance does too and tells me he doesn’t like giving the impression he’s looking down at people πŸ™

@gem…adorable shoes πŸ™‚ they’d look very pretty with  red rose buds.

I am wearing heels for my ceremony but also a pair of ballet flats for the reception. So don’t forget that as an option.

In a way, heels improve posture because if you don’t lean back/stand tall, you’d pitch forward in heels!

But I’m with the other posters – wear what makes you happy. I feel awkward, clumsy, and unsexy in heels, therefore I’m going to be wearing cute flat sandals for our August wedding. πŸ™‚

Gemstone it’s so nice to see I’m not the only one having this problem. LOL I LOVE those purple Jessica Simpson heels however. (mainly because their purple) My soon to be hubby wants me to rock the heels so we’ll see if we can meet in the middle

According to my wedding planner book, heels create a smoother line, since they lift your posterior up and out πŸ™‚

But if you cant walk in them, then that kind of defeats the purpose.

I love those flats, personally.  I posted about them before, and even though I am a shortie (5’2″) I wore flats for the second part of my reception. pssst, consultants just want you to buy more! πŸ˜‰

I really do like those red flats, I say rock the flats. You will want to feel comfy. I wore really nice heels for my wedding but about an hour in, I was dying to get them off. They hurt like heck and I even had foot padding underneath.

I like your flats. I am going with heels, just beause that’s me πŸ™‚ I think you should go with what makes you feel more comfortable on your day.

I think you should go with the flats!  Don’t force yourself to wear (and buy) a pair of shoes you don’t feel comfy in.  See, I love heels, they’re kinda my passion, so I couldn’t imagine wearing anything else.  But that doesn’t mean everyone has to wear ’em!  I’ve even let my BM’s decide what they feel most comfortable wearing, as long as its silver.  The flats you chose are really cute and you can definitely find  use for them after the wedding.
