1. I really like your dress

2. I think beige wedges will go great with that dress, BUT I am not sure about the cork heel. If any part of the shoe is visible, it’ll be the heel part, and cork just seems informal to me. I’d go with something more like this

I’d wear the comfortable shoes, and just swap out for your cute heels when you take pictures. Your feet will thank you at the end of the night!

Could you do your shoe pictures all in one go? Then you won’t need to swap out all the time.

I was also on the fence about shoes. After seeing all the neat shoes on the Bee I wondered if I should get some cool ones too. But then I figured no one would see them and it was one more thing to spend money on. Ultimately, it worked out just fine and I was pretty comfortable.

I vote for heels – I’m personally not a fan of wedges at all but even moreso with a wedding dress. If you want to wear hills and not sink in, there are little things that go on the bottom of yor heel – they work like a charm!

I am also 5’2, and I didn’t want to look short on my wedding day (my bridesmaids are all taller than me, and my fiance is 6’2). I don’t think there is anything wrong with wearing cork wedges under your wedding dress. I bought comfortable wedge shoes by BCBG for my wedding day. They are cork on the bottom and the straps are gold. They measure 4 1/4 inches tall, but the rise is only 2 inches (yay comfort). I also got a pair of 4 inch tall Badgley Mishka shoes, which I plan to wear only for photos (I wanted both shoes to be the same height so my dress wouldn’t drag).

If you won’t be showing your shoes off in photos, I say stick with what’s comfortable. The last thing you want is to be uncomfortable on your wedding day! 🙂
