    I’m actually probably going to have 3 pairs. Sounds crazy, but there’s a good reason:

    1st pair – the pretty pair, for the ceremony, pictures, as much of the reception as I can manage.

    2nd pair – as pretty as I can manage, but mostly geared towards comfort so I have something I can dance in after pair #1 starts hurting too much (which we all know is going to happen, and I can’t stand being barefoot in public places)

    3rd pair – Cute rainboots! I’m getting married in March in Minnesota, and we’ll be walking between the ceremony and reception venues, so I want something for my feet that can a) stand up to snow and slush b) slip on/off quick and c) be cute.

    All of that made perfect sense when I planned it, but looking at having to keep track of 3 pairs of shoes that day makes me feel a little insane. Yikes.

    I would love to have a second pair (flats) for the reception but I don’t want my gown to drag any more than it already will, lol.

    I hope I can get away with one pair, but that depends on whether I can find a pair of nice looking dancing shoes. If I can’t, I’ll get a nice pair for the ceremony and a second pair just for the dance.

    I am SO glad I got some shoes for after my feet started killing me. I’m usually okay in heels, but since I was wearing 4″ heels for quite a while and walking and standing most of that time, I knew I might need some pain-free shoes to change into after the general festivities of the reception turned from formal to dance party.

    Enter the late night shoes:

    I wanted to wear the blue shoes I bought so bad. So I decided to bring them with me to change into them later on. But the pair I had on were so darn comfortable, I just couldn’t take them off. And I should have changed because my bustle broke & my dress was slightly dragging, and those heels were a little over 2 inches higher than the shoes I wore all day. I still have them and haven’t worn them yet.

    I’m only buying one pair. I may bring one of my pairs of ballet flats as an emergency plan at the reception, but I’m planning to buy the heels with comfort in mind. Also, given the specific shoes I’m currently looking at, I’d better only buy one pair…

    I had three pairs of shoes, but I also had two different dresses. I had two different pairs of heels, one to go with each dress, and a pair of flats for the reception. Honestly I still ended up taking my shoes off, I swore I would not be one of those brides….. but I was.

    I’m having three pairs. Heels for my wedding gown and another for my reception dress. Adding a pair of Vera Wang closed-toe flats in case I need them to change into

    I don’t know for sure yet but I’m thinking I’ll have my pretty not-so-comfortable heels for the ceremony, my comfy pair of heels for the reception, and maybe a pair of flats for back up

    I have not decided yet. I really badly want to wear pretty shoes – but I’m really tall so they can’t be heels, and I’m having a hell of a time finding ones I like. 

    I also want to be comfortable though so I’ll probably end up wearing flip flops or flats at the reception. 

    Then I guess if you count my boots for outdoor pictures (just my gray Uggs for warmth) that would make 3!

    2 pairs. the second is for when if/when my feet begin to hurt. I’ll change into a pair of wedge sandals.

    Just one. We’re getting married on a boat and I wanted flats – it was sooo hard to find ivory flats to match my dress, I can’t imagine having to find a second pair. And they’re comfy!
