Today marks one month until the wedding and I still don’t know what to do about shoes. As of last count I have bought 4 pairs of shoes, all heels, knowing that I would be on grass. I love heels and having a tall fiance makes it easy for me to find whatever I want. However, we are are getting married on grass and it can be uneven. Any of you ladies try sole mates for the end of you heels? What do you think!?

But what about your dress? what heel height did you wear for your alterations?

Being altered in two weeks. Still have time to decide. 🙂 Plus the heel height I had when I tried it on was good. Just new heels…never can have enough shoes.

I don’t have experience with sole mates, but I didn’t want to fool with worrying about it, that’s why I went with wedges.

When I bought the solemates, they ended up being too big for the narrow heel on my Valentinos. I ordered them online so there was no way I could know this in advance. Make sure you try the solemates with your shoes, they might not fit.
Anyway, I wore my pointy high heels on grass and did not “sink.” so I’m not sure solemates are worth it.

Learn to walk on the balls of your feet 😉 I do a lot of musical theatre and had to do this constantly because heels make a lot of noise on stage. It’s surprising how fast you can make it a habit, and I haven’t had a heel sink into the grass in years!

I used heels above for my wedding and loved them. I forgot to put them on my shoes during our rehersal and sank into the ground so deep I had to hold onto my husband while I yanked my shoes out to the ground. Standing forward does help a lot, but there was so much going on there was no way I was going to remember to keep my weight shifted. You do have to check the heel thichness though, my sets came with two sizes and neither fit my mom’s shoes.
