I hate it too – I get why they do it heels suck!  I live by the rule a real woman never takes her shoes off! Bring flats or bear the pain!

everyone kept their shoes on at my reception…. but that may have had something to do with the outdoor concrete floor. Innocent

I did tell all the ladies to feel free to change into flip flops or flats if they wanted to bring them!

You’d definitely hate me – I can’t even wear heels so I always wear flats, but I end up even taking those off whenever I possibly can lol. It’s just a comfort thing 🙂

Oh for heaven’s sakes. Feet are not obscene. Let your guests worry about their own hygeine and you worry about yours. This country girl doesn’t give a dayum about dirty feet and I hope my guests feel a-okay to kick their shoes off if they wanna.

@SupermarketGirl:  some of us are vertically challenged and like to wear heels throughout the day for pictures and the more formal parts of the wedding (like the ceremony). I don’t even own any flat dress shoes – all of my pants would drag on the ground.

 

I grew up running around barefoot on a farm. You want to see dirty feet, take a look after you run across gravel driveways and cowpens. 

Please don’t actually try to enforce shoe-wearing by your guests at your wedding. Like PPs have said, I’d much rather they be barefoot and dancing than sitting around!

 I don’t ever take my shoes off, I wear (wore until feet swelled at 28 weeks 🙁 ) Really high heels to work every day and providing they fit well, can dance the night away wearing heels. However i have never cared if others take their’s off, I have never really paid much attention.

@mixtapehearts:  I don’t think they’re obscene…and it’s not about hygiene (other than the floor being really dirty). I just think it’s supposed to be a relatively formal event, and that it’s not the time or place for barefeet unless it’s a beach wedding. I have plenty of heels that are wear-able for the duration of a wedding (some I wear to work for 8 hours), and I think unless your feet are under the table under a tablecloth, you should have shoes on your feet.

@SupermarketGirl:  I notice SOOOO many heels are REALLY high lately, like 5-6 inches…those are crazy. But a supportive 3-3 1/2 inch heel shouldn’t really be that bad. I’m 5′ too! 😉

Your not alone!  I cannot stand this!  If you cannot last in 4 inch heels than you don’t deserve to wear them.  Even my 14 year old was still in heels at the end of a very very long day.

I just don’t see why people care. If you want to keep them on …then by all means- keep them on! If you want to take them off then take them off. As long as the shoeless  people aren’t rubbing their bare feet on your face and the heeled people aren’t running around trying to stab you with their stilettos then I don’t think there will be any problems either way.

I would brave the pain of my heels rather than go barefoot. Floors are disgusting IMO and I always tell people that the floor is covered with fecal matter. Think about it – people go and use the restroom. The toilet spews waste when it is being flushed. Your shoes walk on this spewed waste and then you go back into the reception hall and people walk where you walked with bare feet. Gross.

@baletrina:  LOL, now you have to pass a test to ‘deserve’ to wear certain shoes? 14 hours in 4 inch heels? No thank you!

@Mrs_Amanda:  I agree! There are SO many bigger things to worry about at a wedding. I can’t see why people would give a flying pig if guests kick off their heels to have a good time!
