First off, I normall don’t wear heels so I’m not too sure about this. I will have a fabric aisle runner on a wooden floor. But will I still be making the clickety clack noises as I walk down the aisle? is it really not a problem or what else can I do so that I don’t sound like I’m stomping down the aisle.
(I do realize that I might just need to practice walking quietly in heels)

Do you think that everyone be able to hear you walking with the music on? I think that you will be okay!!!

If you get a shoe with a soft rubber sole (Sofft makes nice heels with rubber soles) not only will it be more comfortable to stand and dance in but it won’t make much noise when you walk. If you get a leather sole, or if your heels have a hard rubber tap on them, you will make noise. However, you’re probably going to have music, right? Plus, you generally walk pretty slowly (compared to a normal pace). The typical "bride-step" goes something like STEP – PAUSE – STEP – PAUSE… so you’re not really walking, if you know what I mean.

Thanks for the reaasurance! I had no idea. The rare times I do wear heels, I always felt like I made so much noise! I guess I just have to make sure that I’m not sprinting down the aisle 🙂

Remember what you just said, prettylittlethings. NOT sprinting down the aisle is one of the hardest things for brides to do. I always tell brides to take a moment before even THINKING about walking. Take it all in. Look at the guests. Because you will never have that view or experience again. Then start walking. And walk. slowly.

if you’re not normally a heel wearer, unless you just have your heart set on wearing them on your wedding day, why not find something that’s more your style that you’re more comfortable with? sure, there are definitely ways to keep from having the heels clack down the aisle, but…you could always do something that doesn’t make you uncomfortable–pretty flip flops, for example.
Just an idea!

I think with walking slower and music on, you should be fine, but if you are really worried about it you could check into having the tips of the heels replaced. I’ve done this on a few pairs of heels (apparently I’m really tough on them!) and the cost is minimal (under $10) and the result is a much quieter walk. (They use a rubber tip as opposed to the original plastic material.)
