Have you heard of solemates? They’re these little rubber things you stick onto the heel to keep them from sinking into the grass. I haven’t actually used them myself, but I was considering getting some for my wedding before we moved it inside. Here’s their website if you want to look into that option: http://thesolemates.com/

The only other thing I can think of is maybe getting wedges or just a shoe with a wider/thicker heel. Hope that helps 🙂

There’s a product you can buy called Solemates. They keep heels from sinking into grass.

I bought the solemates for a wedding last year and they really work as great as they say they do! Lifesaver!

What about wedge heels??

I’ve been told that they’re more comfortable then stilleto heels and are easier on your feet. (I wouldn’t know personally because I’m 6 feet tall and don’t wear heels) And they wouldn’t stick and you wouldn’t have plastic things on your shoe. I’m not saying anything against the soulmates but if your bridesmaid wanted to wear nice shoes, I doubt she’ll want them altered with the soulmates.

So the wedge heel is an option.

Miss Stiletto posted about this problem a while ago — there are these little plastic things you can stick on the heel of your shoes to theoretically stop them from sinking. (These are the "solemates" mentioned above, I believe.) There are also wedge heels, if you’d prefer (they also give you more stability).

Ya, I’m having an outdoor wedding and was concerned about this too, I think wedges are the way to go…I guess it depends on how fancy your wedding will be but I think mine are going with some espadrilles from Jcrew…

I hadn’t thought about this. Has anyone here used soulmates that can report back on them and how they worked out???
