Vince Camuto Devin, 4 1/4 inches. I’m 5’2 and I’d like a bit of extra height that day. 😊 They are surprisingly comfortable. I’ve been breaking them in around the house for the last week but can’t say how I’ll feel after consecutive hours of wear. Planning to bring a change of clothes and wedges just in case. Wish I had some tips but I’m usually a jeans and flip flop lady, not much experience with heels except low heels for work.

So my shoe advice is to never settle. No matter how pretty a shoe is. When shopping, find a shoe that can distribute your weight over a good amount of area, rather than focusing all the weight on the balls of your feet. If you find a good pair in stores, take them home and cook dinner in them. If you can stand and move in them without pain for an hour, then they could be a keeper. Otherwise they should go back.

Generally I find pumps more comfortable than sandals. Thicker heels or wedges more comfortable than stilettos. A good stiletto though I think is worth all the money in the world. My wedding pumps came in right under $200 but my trusty work heels have generally been somewhere in the $100 range. 

Most brides I know either lose their shoes to change to flip flops over the course of the night. I don’t want to go from a high heel to no heel and risk stepping on my dress so if I need to, I’m going to change into a pair of my favorite broken in work heels if I get uncomfortable. These work heels are a wedge and has gotten me through 12 hour days.

I wore 4.5 in wedges for the ceremony and then just went barefoot the rest of the night. The shoes were comfy but not comfortable enough to wear for hours, especially since I’m typically a flats kinda girl.

sam0528 :  lol Accident prone on a regular day so I get it. I wanted to walk down the aisle solo but it would hurt my dads feelings so not worth it. Now I’m thinking his arm support might help keep me on my feet. Fiance has already cracked a couple jokes about me falling. You’ll be ok! Try walking in the shoes with your dress on for a few minutes if possible. Just be careful with your dress.

sam0528 :  You could get shoes with block heels or wedges so they’re more comfortable and you’re less likely to trip.

sam0528 :  Block heels! You are wear taller ones to give you the height without having to worry about trying to balance/walk in thin heels!

These were my bridal Shower shoes which are Badgley Mischka as well. These weren’t comfortable but they were cute.

If you want to be comfortable you should wear platform shoes and get .5 size big. I am petit and wear size 5. I wore guess kiery platform sandals on my wedding day. Put them on at 4pm and took them off at 5am. Danced whole night and didn’t even hurt!
