Wedges or flats…or look into getting sole mates for your heels!

I once saw plastic things that brides put on their heels if they were having a wedding in the grass. http://www.thesolemates.com/ I just googled it and found this link! Tell me what you think about these.

Ok, this is not meant to insult anybody who might like those, but they are sooo ugly! Why would people put those on their beautiful shoes?

LOL! I dont wear high heels so I dont know! Im 6 ft…so no heels here! Can you notice them that bad? I just thought if she really wanted heels and would be on the grass…and i dont think anyone would see them under the gown? And she could just wear them on the grass and take them off after.

My wedding ceremony is on the grass too and I have the same fear of sinking. I’m short and I love heels though, so I’m gonna wear ’em anyway and hope for the best. I put on heels and did a test run around my ceremony site and it seemed to be okay… the lawn/grass there is pretty firm.

I actually have those SoleMates that D.Marie posted, and I was thinking the same thing… they’d help me get down the aisle without sinking and without being too noticeable since they’ll be under my dress. I ordered them online, but they don’t even really fit onto the heel of my shoe. So I’m not using them.

I am in the same  boat, outdoor ceremony – sinking bride!

As I am quite short, 5′, 5’1 when you catch me on a good day (tee hee) and need the height with my dress since I am getting my dress hemmed with wearing my heels I figured I needed to find some big sandels – you know those big spoungy type ones?

if you wanted to go two shoes that might be a good option, if you are unable to you may have to consider something like those SoleMates that D.Marie posted (which are weird looking…)

@KateMW:  I think they are ugly too, but then again no one will see them since most wedding dresses are really long and cover your feel anyways.  I just can’t bear wearing casual shoes with my fancy dress and to me, wedges/flats are just too casual. I’d rather have some nice wedding heels in my photographs, and then slip those plastic things on after the photos are done..

I bought ivory wedges from Dillard’s. I think that the plastic heel things look ridiculous. If you took it off right after the ceremony it would be okay I guess.

I have the same issue, too! My wedding will also be on grass, and I really don’t want to wear wedges and flats, either. Originally I planned to have sole mates, but now I look at those pictures and find it does look ugly… 🙁
