    I wore heels and my feel were killing me.  I was worried I wouldn’t be able to stand for the whole ceremony!  Definitely go with what you are comfortable with!  If I had to do it again, I would have work much shorter heels or flats!

    It’s not tacky to wear flats at all on your wedding day. I actually plan on wearing flats for my ceremony because it will be 90 min long and I am not putting myself through the pain of standing 90 min on marble floor. I plan on wearing heels for pictures and the reception, but I am comfortable in heels.

    I’m not very comfortable in heels either and I plan on wearing flats.

    I’m already over 5’8″ and my dress is floor length so who’s gonna notice? lol

    Wear what’s comfortable for you or you’ll regret it.

    They have shoes with the tiniest 1 inch heels…would even those bother you?

    I wore ballet flats (floor-length gown so you couldn’t even see them) and was comfy the whole ceremony and reception!! (Sorry, don’t have pics of the shoes)

    I wore them for two reasons. One, I wanted my feet to be comfortable and two, I’m taller than my husband so I didn’t want to be even taller.

    Also, some wear heels for the ceremony and then flats for the reception, but remember that if you do this, the length of the dress will be longer with the flats and that could be a big problem!

    The last thing I wanted was to be uncomfortable on my wedding day. My feet felt great and I was able to dance the entire reception!

    Go for what every you feel comfortable in, and really if your sister wears heels daily then let her ๐Ÿ™‚ I have 2 very tall Bridesmaid or Best Man and i would never expect them to wear 3 in heels in my wedding…I am going for longer dresses as well ๐Ÿ™‚ If you wanted appease the sister (not that you should!) but the Kitten Heel is going to be super popular in 2011 (just saw this on the news!) you could do a low kitten will look so cute!

    I already know 100% that I want to wear flats on my wedding day. I don’t like heels and I want to be comfortable. Overall though I want to have a laid back, cozy wedding. If your wedding is very formal, flats might be strange.

    I’m DEFINITELY wearing flats.  I never wear heels, can’t walk in ’em, and am not wiping out during my wedding for the sake of fashion.  Be your wonderfully comfortable self on your wedding day.  Stay strong!

    I wore flats, because, like you, I never wear heels!

    Your wedding shouldn’t be a time to try out being something that you’re not – it’s a time to celebrate your love, not wear the trendiest shoes your sister can put on your feet, haha.

    Go with what makes you feel like yourself, but confident and pretty.

    @ashleetoo: Wow, I could have written this myself! I have juggled this with in my head as well and heard friends say similar comments. I’m wearing flats because I know myself and I know I would end up making a fool of myself if I tried to wear heels. I want to be comfortable and the last thing I want to be worrying about is my feet! I think if your the most comfortable in flats, go with them! You want to be relaxed not stressed about not if you’re going to fall, but when! Yay to flats!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m buying two pairs – a pair of heels for ceremony and pictures, then flats to swap into. I’m NOT a heel person, so I know I won’t last in my cute heels for more than a few hours!
