This is why i bring fast flats to receptions. 

I think its SUPER nasty to walk on the dance floor where everyone is spilling drinks with your bare feet. 

I will probably provide cheap flip flops at my reception.

I dont have a problem with it. I plan on dancing alot during the reception and if my shoes hurt, really…I will just take them off 🙂

Its our party after all….and if guests want to do the same….thats also fine by me.

@WhatMaeBee:  “But a supportive 3-3 1/2 inch heel shouldn’t really be that bad.”.

For you maybe, but I wouldn’t last an hour in those. Some people cannot wear heels for an extended period of time. Like some PP’s, they may want to wear them for the ceremony (where they’ll be sitting most of the time) and for pictures but once the activity starts, comfort comes first.

@lilbluebird:  Unless you’re planning to lick your feet, I wouldn’t think it would be that big of a deal.

@baletrina:  “If you cannot last in 4 inch heels than you don’t deserve to wear them.” 

Really?

@Mrs_Amanda: I’m with ya. I had NO idea that this was such an issue for some people. Seems kind of ridiculous to worry about something so trivial.

I am always impressed with people who can wear high heels for more than like, an hour or two!  But I am a huge fan of being barefoot, I feel like my feet can get dirty, and then I’ll wash them.  No big deal!  

Plus I’ve always felt like when people start taking their shoes off, the party starts getting wilder!  I guess I’ll be happy if people feel the need to take their shoes off to dance, as long as they wait until, say, after dinner…

If you want to get technical there are trace amounts of fecal matter on a whole whole lot of stuff we touch.  Getting some on the bottom of my feet is the least of my worries.  Really, its the furtherest thing from my mouth.

I always kick off my shoes as soon as the music starts.  So do most of the other women there.

I always have a pair of flipflops with me for weddings.  They alway are clean and match my outfit I have at least a dozen pairs of Reefs in every color and silver and gold flip flops (I am a beach kid.) I hate dancing in heels.  I also have been known to kick of my shoes.  I will have heels for my wedding and Chuck Taylors for the reception (I love the idea b/c Fiance always gives me a new color every Christmas).  I would much rather my guest be comfortable and be able to enjoy themselves than worry about something like bare feet or flip flops in photos.

While I wouldn’t dance barefoot – not because I find it tacky, icky, classless, etc – but because I can’t dance, I would have no problem with people being barefoot at my wedding.  Sometimes it hurts to be a girl…literally!  We stuff ourselves into tight undergarments/dresses to where it’s hard to breath, stick our feet into small shoes that have a an unnatural angle, paint our faces in 100 degree weather, wax ourselves hairless, all kinds of other crazy things to look good. Sometimes it’s nice to not care for a minute about we look and just have fun.

I haven’t been to a wedding in 5 years, and I don’t even remember what people did.  Luckily, there are a lot of flats out that I’m sure a lot of people will be happy about.  I feel like I haven’t noticed this many flat shoes in the stores in years.  I’m a high heel fan, and have never taken them off, but for me, it’s more important that people are on that dance floor rather than sitting at the table.  If I really wanted to control it, I’d provide the flip flop basket (which does seem like a really nice gesture and actually looks cute) or ballerina flats, but I’m not.  But, Yes, I’d also love for everyone to keep their heels on, but we certainly cannot control it.

I would be disappointed if all the shoes stayed ON at our wedding…

I love being barefoot. I have funny shaped feet so I find it very difficult to get comfortable shoes. I can’t even wear flip flops without developing rather horrible blisters. If I remember I try to take little ballet pumps (I have loads in different colours from Aldo, which are the comfiest things ever!) out to events, but if I forget then my beautiful-but-deadly sky high heels are usually abandoned anyway after an hour or so.

I never ever take my shoes off at parties. I’ve seen it done at clubs (back in the day), Christmas parties, and Weddings. I don’t really care if ladies choose to do this, it’s just really not for me. However, I do always wonder why they wear shoes that hurt their feet, why not just wear cute, comfy shoes, they do exsist! Although, I guess some people may like dancing barefoot, maybe it just feels better!
