I’m hoping you will have some miraculous shoe suggestion for me. We are getting married in a garden and I literally never wear high heels so I’m looking for a low (1.5 inch) wedge shoe to wear. That’s about the height I need for the dress.
I’m having trouble picking a shoe which would look ok with my dress – no idea where to begin really. Below are photos of my dress on the model, front and back.
It’s cream in colour. I’m not super keen to match the shoes to the dress colour.
Any suggestions in terms of style? Keep in mind I am in Australia so specific store reccomendations probably won’t help me much, but suggestions on the TYPE of shoe which might look ok are much appreciated.

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!

Ooooh those are actually quite lovely. Yes, there doesn’t seem to be much in the way of wedges around.
Thank you for the suggestion of block heels! I must admit that it is comforting to think people won’t care about my shoes… I really don’t care myself so I don’t want to spend months and months thinking about it :). I just want to be comfortable.

P.S. All I’m having an amazing time looking at block heels – I think this is truly the solution!!

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!

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

Thanks for all your awesome suggestions everyone. I’ve bought a pair of affortable metallic block shoes from ASOS – they are cheap so it’s a good way to see if they will actually suit. If they don’t I’ll try some other cheap styles to see what works. I’m kind of hoping that lahela017
is correct and nobody will be able to see my shoes/care! Hahahah.
I really like these too!
