I LOVE heals and wear them to work nearly every day.  That being said, I will not be wearing heals on my wedding day.  This is the one day you will be on your feet and on the go from sun up to well after sun down.  You don’t want to be uncomfortable at all.  Even a comfortable heal will eventually begin to hurt your feet, back or legs.  I plan to wear a very low wedge shoe for the ceremony and change into some comfy slippers after.  You have to be careful not to change your height so much as to drag your dress.  I think a little drag is expected, but you don’t want to trip over it and step all over it.

I need all the extra height that I can have.  My Fiance and I have 14 inch height difference. I do plan to wear heels but of course will have flats throughout the reception or as needed.

i would absolutely wear heels, no questions asked. there is a huge difference in the way my dress lookso on me when i wear heels under it compared to when i don’t. my dress has a very similar silhouette to yours. i also think that my shoes might shoe in some of the pictures as well.

i would definitely wear heels for as much of the day as i could, and then bring comfy sheos as a backup. i only get married once, i wanna be dressed to the max!

I’m all for comfort, but I’m positive I’m going to be wearing the highest heels I can manage at my wedding.  My BF is just over a foot taller than I am, and his dad and brother are both four inches taller than him!  I’m going to wear heels just so I don’t look like a kid in all the pictures.  I don’t know what the height difference is for you and your Fiance, but if it’s something similar, I recommend the heels.

All that being said, I wish they weren’t so uncomfortable.  I have weak ligaments, and I have ended up on crutches many times before because I hurt my feet badly by wearing heels.
