(Closed) Shoes!!! Need a low wedge… not loving wedding shoes in general

I hate heels and only wear them if they’re comfy enough. I used to attempt to wear stilettos when I was near to 20s but I gave up on that.

I recommend instead of a wedge getting a block heel. They are still comfy and feel sturdy on the feet. I have a pair like this in black, 5cm heel from Clarks, used it for multiple ocassions:

I did a search for “block heel sandal” on google and they show a bunch of results. If you want something more closed toe, I’m sure you would also find a solution. In the end, I never notice a bride’s shoes, so I think you’ll be fine. 🙂

I was also going to suggest a low block heel instead of a wedge, not many wedges around at the moment. There’s lots of this sort of shape on ASOS.

 

I am struggling to find something too as I want them to be off-white to match the dress but there’s hardly any white shoes around!

ely16 :  Glad you liked or suggestions. I went to nordstrom since they have a lot of stocked brands. This link might help (it’s a custom search) 🙂 http://shop.nordstrom.com/c/womens-heels?origin=topnav&cm_sp=Top%20Navigation-_-Shoes-_-Women_Heels&top=66&flexi=60193190_60193192&color=%27White%27%7C%27Offwhite%27%7C%27Beige%27%7C%27Metallic%27

I think beige, metallic, white and off-white colours would suit a wedding look. 🙂

No one will look at your shoes, so just find some that work for you and don’t worry about it.  I got some flats that I thought were pretty, and looked ok- if anyone saw them.  I don’t think anyone saw them though.

Agree with the above, but if you’re really set on a wedge, Badgley Mischka does some lower fancy ones that you can find at tons of online retailers. Pretty dress!

I was kind of excited for my shoes and the only people who saw them were my friends and family who got ready with me! And our 8 year old cousin because she was soooo excited that we were both wearing gold shoes lol. Lots of good options posted here!

cinnapep :  omg i LOVE those! looking for them now.

OP i can relate to your struggle. i’m getting married in a garden so if I wear heels they can’t be stiletto (or else i’ll sink into the grassy ground).  i dont really love the look of wedges with a long dress though. i am tempted to wear flats for the comfort aspect, but my Fiance is a foot taller than me so maybe it would be nice to have a little height? ugh i dunno.

My Fiance is my height and we are getting married on brick outside. I plan on wearing fancy flats. With maybe a touch of sparkle. Ditto on the block heel for you or just say eff it and go for flats!

I wore flip flop wedges i bought from Etsy. I highly recommend them, they were comfortable and didn’t hurt at all! This idea would only work if you weren’t getting married in the winter though obviously.

I wore these and they were super comfortable – plus they aren’t ‘wedding’ shoes so I can wear them again
