Hi Ladies! First time post 🙂 Loving the input I have read from others, so I am hoping I can get some great advice.
I am getting married outdoors next May. My fiance is 6′ 5″ and I am 5′ 6″, so I would like something with a bit of a heel to compensate for our difference in height, but I do not want to poke holes in the dirt the whole way down the aisle.
I am looking for suggestions for a fantastic shoe, but my online searches have proved unfruitful. Any websites or designers that you could suggest would be very appreciated!

I wouldn’t really call these fantastic, but here is a silver wedge that might work. You could add a shoe clip or flower if you wanted. And they are only $30. Or here are some white ones.

Two suggestions: Seychelles has some really cute wedges that might work, but it would depend on the style of your dress. I got the “Joan” wedges in off-white and have gotten SO many compliments on them. I got them as back-up shoes to the original shoes that I bought (Nina Critia in blue) but had the same dilemma as you . . . I was worried about sinking into the ground at my outdoor wedding. Looks like I won’t need my back-up shoes for the wedding because I bought “Sole Savers” which slip onto the heel of your shoe and prevent you fron digging into the dirt. I have heard they don’t work for everyone, but I tried them on my shoes and they work just fine (and keep me from sinking). Here’s the link: http://www.thesolemates.com/ Good luck!

I enjoy browsing shoes and I’m bored at work so I’ve found a couple possible options for you. I don’t know the formality of your event so two of these are very formal and the other two are more casual. I also don’t know your budget for shoes so a couple of these may not work depending on that.
Casual White Wedges w/ 3″ heel – http://www.zappos.com/romantic-soles-shanny-white-patent
Casual White (or I really like the Pewter color) Wedges w/ 2.25″ heel – http://www.zappos.com/ak-anne-klein-frolic-pewter
Formal Ivory Wedge w/ 4″ heel – http://www.zappos.com/pour-la-victoire-bridal-and-evening-cordelia-ivory-satin
Very formal Ivory wedge w/ 4″ heel – http://www.zappos.com/pour-la-victoire-bridal-and-evening-enya-ivory-satin
If I find anything else that could work outdoors without sinking, I’ll post it for you!

Thank you all! I had never even thought of a wedge style. I think I will move forward with that kind of shoe, because my Fiance is so tall, I could actually have a taller shoe.

I found these on ebay!! I haven’t tested them, but it makes sense, more surface, less chance of sinking. that way you could have the option of still were a spiked heel. They’re called solemates heel protectors
