My wedding is outside also. I am buying Solemates so my heels don’t sink. I’m going to pick up some of them for my bridesmaids also.

Mine is going to be in a garden, too. They make these plastic things that you stick on your heels to prevent sinking.. although, I dont know what they are called! 🙁

You can wear whatever you want!

But if it is outside and you are in the grass, then you will sink and could easily mess up the heels, your dress or something else.  You could also possibly fall. It’s just easier to wear something wider.

Those rubber heel covers really work, I have worn them before. But you still have to keep more weight in your forefoot than you might be used to; they’re not miracle workers.

@MrsBtoBe14:  I’m wearing wedges.  I think its a good compromise between heels and flats.

I found some gorgeous loeffler randall wedges to wear.


I’m going to advise my guests about this as well.  I went to a friends wedding outdoors, and on her website she had a link to solemates and suggested flats or wedges as alternatives.

You have a lot of potential  options:

Soulmates – I’ve heard great things about them, but they’re still not cure-alls, there will still be sinking.

Wedges – Great as long as you can walk in grass wearing them.

Stand – Make a heart-shaped cut out of plywood, painted in your colors – you can do them for your maids as well.

Two Pairs of Shoes! – Wear flats for the ceremony, and switch to your awesome heels for the reception.
