Ok, here is my problem. I can’t find any i want to wear on my wedding day. I have ordered no less then 35 pairs of shoes from zappos, shoebuy and endless (ok its THEIR fault for having free shipping and free return shipping). Now because i’m a plus sized bride i need a low heel shoe. I thought i found the perfect shoe until i went for my dress fitting. My dress is very heavy and 30 minutes standing in those shoes and my feet were killing me, so it was back to the drawing board. I’m beginning to wonder if i will ever find the perfect shoe. But i know in reality the only time anyone will see my shoes is during the garter, but still i want me some cute shoes.

Have you thought about a cute pair of flats? What are your wedding colors?

Use the shoes you love for the garter and wear comfortable ones the rest of the time?
My Boyfriend or Best Friend always laughs that I’ll need platform sneakers when we get married (he’s over a foot taller then me) because I don’t think I’ll make it in sky high heels all night as much as I’d love to!

I second the flats… If I wasnt 5ft tall with no grace in flats Id definitely do it… And you can always keep a hot pair of shoes under the table… before the garter stuff slip them on and even for pictures if your doing some that might see your shoes… then when your done back to comft ballet flats!

I think for something like that the best bet is to go for a super cute flat. A friend of mine wore some from Irregular Choice for her wedding. They were beautiful. I may or may not have been stalking the website trying to find them…
Hi, I’m LittleMissMoo and I have a serious shoe problem too 🙂

I wore fabulous looking uncomfortable shoes and it was 100% worth it. Yes, I had blisters at the end of the day and could barely walk, but I wore the most fabulous shoes I’ve ever worn on the most important day of my life! I also had a pair of flats to change into, which people kept trying to make me do but I didn’t until the after party.
You’re the bride, the day will revolve around you so if you need some help walking or need to sit down a minute, so be it! Go for the fab shoes!

Have you seen Damn Heels ?http://www.damnheels.com/
They are folded ballet flats that come in a cute pouch. You can wear them for your whole wedding except for the garter removal and toss. You will be sitting for that anyway so it won’t matter that your gown may be a bit short with your other pair-“sexy sandals” on.
Your photos will show you in fabulous sexy shoes.

I had the best shoes ever! but i had to take them off before the ceremony even started and put on flats- my feet hurt so bad! Go with flats!

I had the BEST shoes 🙂 Purple and matched my colors but after the ceremony I *wanted* to take them off but had my dress altered for 4″ heels so instead I had my Maid/Matron of Honor run to my room and get my rehearsal dinner shoes (also 4″ and not quite as fab but very cute nonetheless) and wore those instead….by 1a.m my feet didn’t hurt and I didn’t have blisters but my toes were pretty white and numb! haha
I ABSOLUTLY suggest getting a blister stick (bandaid makes one you can get at Target or a drugstore) because I used it and didn’t have ANY blisters at all (I usually get them on a typical “night out”)

Hi, I’m Scottielass and I am a Shoe Addict, too . Fiance says my shoe collection breeds when he’s sleeping. So far, just one ultra hot pair of shoes for the big day, but I would just be blowing smoke to say that won’t change over the next 10 months. I am a bargainista. When he starts giving me grief, I just remind him a pair of my shoes is still less than one of his video games.
