As the title asks…is wearing heels under a fuller-skirted dress really going to make me look better? I don’t really WANT to wear heels, I’d rather wear flats. However, I know heels make your legs and butt look better. Will this make a difference under my dress (see attached). Thanks!

First of all, I LOVE your dress! You look amazing!
I, too, and dealing with this question. I love high heels. As I’m sure you can tell from my name on here. I’m actually leaning more and more to just wearing cute kitten heels so that my feel aren’t hurting terribly by the end of the night. To make matters worse, if I was to wear a pair of killer high heels and then take them off and switch to something else, I will be tripping all over myself in my dress, which would be too long in flatter shoes… so I think I am actually going to go with kitten heels. No one is going to see them anyways.
Louboutins are also increadibly uncomfortable, unless you wear a platform version of it and I don’t want to be almost 6 feet tall on my wedding day (I’m 5’7″ as it is)

If you want to be comfy, don’t wear high heels. The only time you’ll see them is maybe when you sit down. Or like Mrs. Louboutin says…wear kitten heels!

Love love LOVE you dress – you look gorgeous in it!
I am dealing with this question also!
My feet hurt in heels all the time and I really don’t want that on my wedding day! So I thought about wearing flats but then I am worried that it will make my legs look short because my dress has a dropped waist (not a mermaid the waist sits just on top of my hips) but seen as your dress has a natural waist this shouldn’t be a problem for you!
The other problem I am worried about it Louboutin talked about – wearing heals – taking them off when your feet are hurting and then stepping on your dress for the rest of the night!
It is hard to tell where your feet are under that dress so the only think I would be worried about with flats would the dress being shortened too much if you are short like me!
The heals having an effect on your legs or bum in a ball gown will definitely NOT be seen!
Let us know what you decide!

I also have a full skirted dress and I’m leaning towards kitten heels. I agree with Louboutin that shoes with a platform seem to be the most ‘stable’ for me and comfortable, if I were to wear heels. But since no one will be seeing them, I’ll probably just save my feet.
I don’t think anyone would notice a difference in your butt in a big skirt!

heels can make you stand taller and look more confident… so maybe check your posture in both and see what you want to look like on your day!

I *love* shoes, and I adore pics of brides’ gorgeous, funky-colored pumps with their dresses hiked up a few inches (often next to the grooms feet).
I am so disappointed I never did this for my own wedding. If I had it to do over again, I would go with some gorgeous blue pumps under my dress. You can always change later!

i think the heels i bought have a 2 inch heal? i’m leaning toward heals to help with posture issues;)

I just feel more comfortable in at least some heel, but if you don’t have an attachment to them, then it probably doesn’t matter. Have you tried different options with your dress to see which looks better with the fall of the skirt?
Gorgeous dress. : )

I’d probably go with comfort, but sometimes you have to wear the heels. Because of the way my dress was designed, it would have been very expensive for me to have it shortened, so I had to wear 4 1/2 inch heels. Luckily I found some comfy ones.

I personally believe in never wearing shoes that are uncomfortable. There are comfortable high-heels and women shouldn’t compromise and buy the pretty painful ones! We just perpetuate the cycle of bad shoemaking! I like the look high-heels give, it changes your posture too. But if you’re uncomfortable, it’s so, so not worth it. You’ll look uncomfortable too.

I’m up in the air about this as well. Heels change the way that you stand/walk, so maybe take photos of yourself standing in heels versus standing in fats. I guess you could always change into some comfy flats for the reception, but depending on how high your heels are, your dress might drag a little. Kitten heels seem to be a good compromise. Beautiful dress, btw, you look great in it!

I’m so glad you brought this up. I haven’t decided what to wear yet, but aliciareneephotogapy’s post inspired me to find something that matches my personality since the shoes will not show unless I show them. (I’m a clunky boot girl myself, can’t stand pinchy high heels)

Use Yoga to work on your posture and find some great (relatively flat!) comfy shoes for your wedding day!

I love heels. I’m SUCH a shoe girl. I’ll have two pairs of shoes – one pair of heels to enjoy for a while, and then switch it up to some very decorative flats. 🙂 Why not have the best of both worlds if I want it?
