Are wedges an option for you? I had heels for the pictures before the ceremony and then said screw it and changed into my wedges (not wedding wedges, my michael kors wedges, haha) for the ceremony and rstof the night, best decision ever. I danced all night, my feet never hurt and no one could see them under my dress.

Gsxr06:  I wear wedges when I attend an outdoor wedding on grass.  I’m with you on those heel covers. Not only do they look ugly, they also don’t really work all that well.  They do help prevent so much damage to a fabric heel, but they still sink into the grass.

My ceremony (and most of the fun parts of the wedding) took place on soft grass.

I wore my 4″ heels for the ceremony. It was a little tricky standing in the grass but I did a practice run the day before and I was fine.

But I ended up changing into fancy flat sandals right before the first dance. 🙂

I’ve worn regular heels once for an outdoor ceremony (I was a BM) and I’d advise against it. It was a short ceremony but even still, I felt weird trying to avoid sinking the whole time I was standing up there. Also I’m sure I walked kind of funny going down the aisle. I’d seriously look into some flats or wedges.
