I am obsessed with shoes, especially heels, so how much they hurt feet is never ever a deterrent for me buying and wearing them. My wedding shoes are going to be killer, probably in the sense of them hurting my feet, and of how much i’m going to love how they look. I will def. be going barefoot i’m sure at some point but oh well i’ll have on a long dress atleast Wink

My shoes need to be comfy. I am miserable if my feet hurt.

Omg- if you want to wear your shoes all night… get the comfy shoes!

I was of the mind that it wouldn’t matter to me.  I just wanted the nicest shoes I could find.  The ones I fell for were 4 inches tall, ouch.  While standing at the altar I remember thinking, “I don’t have much more of this in me”.  I was in pain!  So every chance I got I’d take those bad boys off and go bare foot.  Aside from the first dance, my shoes were off in a corner somewhere.  The bottom of my feet were sooooo dirty (and I stepped on something that cute my foot- oops)!  And I should mention that there’s only one picture of my shoes.  Not worth the drama!

Again, go with comfort, you’ll be so glad you did!

I totally envy those of you who can wear the gorgeous and painful shoes!  I totally wish I could!  I’m one of those people where if my feet hurt, I’m out of commission.  So I won’t be wearing those shoes to my wedding.  But I’m already taller than my fiance, so the heels don’t work anyways.

I am completely and totally against buying shoes that are uncomfortable (for myself) but *gasp* I don’t care about shoes too much. I dislike dislike dislike having uncomfortable feet. My bridesmaids are lucky I agreed not to wear sneakers on the wedding day.

I would never buy shoes that I KNOW are uncomfortable…but I do have shoes that have become uncomfortable after an hour or two, and I continue to wear them, lol.

What about doing kitten heels or flats? Or something with a stacked heel…I find that those shoes are more comfy that stilettos.

It was important to me to find comfortables shoe (comfortable 4 inch heels nonetheless), so I bought several pairs before I found the “one”.

The kicker is that the day before the wedding, I wore a new pair of black heels to my rehearsal dinner.  I thought they would be comfortable – well, they were NOT.  I ended up getting blisters on my feet. 

So, there I was, on my wedding day, forcing my freshly blistered feet in my new comfortable wedding shoes that took me forever to find.  They weren’t so comfortable anymore.  It was not fun.

I would never buy uncomfortable shoes.  It isn’t worth it to me.  I tend to go for hidden platforms if I have to have on heels.  I always buy quality.

I WISH I could get the pretty shoes so many bees have posted, but I will be sticking to shoes that are no higher than 1.5-2″.  Anything more than that, my feet will ache after 30 mins or so of standing, which then translates to crankiness 🙁

I don’t put my feet in unecessary pain! I used to do that in college and now i wait and spend my money on good quality shoes that look great AND feel great. I just can’t do it.

I can deal with a little discomfort, like the balls of my feet hurting from heels.  I wore 4-inch heels for my ceremony, but then changed for the reception.  They were still tall, but they had rubber soles so they were cushy.

Usually if a shoe is terrible, I can force myself to wear it until they break in, and then they’re great.  I spent all last Memorial Day weekend hobbling around Minneapolis in these excruciating T-straps (flats! They weren’t even heels!), changing band-aids several times a day, but now they are the best shoes ever and I can walk for hours in them.

I absolutely love shoes!  I have this problem where i fall in love with gorgeous, totally uncomfortable shoes, and then can’t wear them longer than 30 minutes, lol!  I plan on finding the perfect tall but comfortable shoes for the wedding.  What I’ve found works best for me are platforms (they tend to be padded a bit more, and give the height, without the extreme foot angle).  I’m in love with the idea of the Cole Haan Nike Air technology pumps, though, so I’m definitely looking into those for the day.  Fiance is almost a foot taller than me, so height is a must.

ETA: I also love wegdes!  They’re so much more comfortable than regular heels…
