Make sure you get any pictures with shoe shots in them BEFORE you walk outside..you don’t want a muddy heel in all of your pictures. Hopefully the ground won’t be too soft.

Oooh… I would make sure you’re not going to sink into the ground with those skinny heels! If you don’t like wedges, maybe a thicker heel at least?

These shoes are gorgeous, but I would be concerned that I would stumble. And if you’re wearing a full wedding gown with a train, remember it will take a little extra effort to walk in the first place. Tip-toeing + heavy gown may not be a good combo! Can you test it out at your venue with another pair of shoes that have a similar heel?

Would you consider wearing a “safer” pair for the ceremony and then changing into these for the reception (assuming it’s indoors or on harder surface)?

@LoveForShaun: Oh, that does make a big difference – you’re a tip-toe pro!!

P.S. I wore 3.5″ flip-flops. Here’s a pink pair w/4.25″ platforms at Zappos (from Juicy):

 

And a pair of wedges (I realize they’re much more casual; just throwing out options!):

Practice practice practice. If you don’t want to risk getting your actual wedding-day shoes dirty, can you buy a cheaper pair with a heel of similar thickness and height? Or do you already have a pair? If so, walk on grass as much as possible. That’s what I did for my shoes. I felt ridiculous traipsing around my backyard in 4″ heels, but walking down the aisle was thankfully uneventful.

The heel caps work well in my opinion. I wore them for a friends wedding and the ceremony took place outdoors.  My stiletto heels didn’t sink, nor did they get dirty. Try a pair and practice in some other heels.  I got mine from http://www.thesolemates.com. Good luck!!!

I’m going to be walking down a long dirt path in 3″ heels! I don’t mind digging in a little- works like soccer cleats, lol! But I am staying away from fabric shoes, so the dirt doesn’t get ground into them.
