Are you totally opposed to wearing any kind of heel? A wedge heel might be an option for a non-heel wearer if you are concerned about your height. They tend to be more comfortable and have more support than regular heels. If you are really against heels, you could go with some cute flat sandals.

I would maybe go for gold shoes if the glittery part of your dress is gold.

I don’t know how you feel about colored shoes, but a pair of (red) peep-toes would be really cute.  They’re the ones that look like heels, with a hole at the toe.  You definitely don’t have to get red — a muted gold would also look really nice!  I think a heel as opposed to a sandal would look better with the dress and they’re easier to walk in.  And, not all heels are uncomfortable to wear.  I’m pretty short so I’m always bebopping around in heels and I have a few that feel like walking on air!  Just make sure to walk around a little when you try on the shoes, to see how they feel when you walk and to make sure they don’t rub your feet or fall off.  AND, buy the band-aid shoe rub!  You rub it on your feet when you wear heels and it keeps you from getting blisters!  You can get it at almost any drugstore!

Since you don’t like heals you probably only want it to be about 2-3 inches. If you go to Nordstrom’s online look up these

My best advice would be to drive yourself to Rack Room Shoes, Shoe Carnival or DSW and start looking at shoes you like with a heel… then expand outward to shoes that might be heels, but have great soles (I have a pair of these wedges, about 3 inches tall, that are so comfy, I can wear them all day! AND I HATE HEELS!).

Also, look into the Cole Haan Nike Air shoes. They are expensive but may be what you need.

Finally–if worst comes to worst, find a pair of flats that are strappy, not quite gladiator shoes but that go up your ankles just a bit so it gives your shoes some "height," making them look less flat. Good luck!

Here a a list of shoes I found for you on the Nordstrom website (just type the name in the search box) :

"Prissy" Sandal ( these should be comfortable because they are made my Nautralizer)

"Havana Slide" 

"Pinky" slide 

"Delovely" sandal

 All of these are in the gold color family and  have a pretty low heal (about 2-3 inches tall). 


These are in the red family but are harder to find with low heals:




Hope this helps!

Since you are "vertically challenged" I would suggest wearing heels, but since you don’t wear them very often, I would go with a wedge – they will give you the height and be much for comfortable.

Your dress is adorable! Since you are carrying a red rose bouquet, why not go with a red shoe? I think it would look great! Here are some suggestions:





If you want to stay with a white shoe to match your dress, try these:
