    Go with a heel close to the size you plan on wearing.

    Heels, similar in size to what I was planning on wearing to the wedding.

    I was barefoot because it was just easier.  I am 5’11”-6′ tall though so I wasn’t planning on wearing heels anyway.

    Barefoot, because you’re just trying on dresses, not doing a fitting. Unless you have a pair of shoes that you have to wear, or you’re extra tall, it doesn’t really matter what’s on your feet when you’re trying them on.

    I went barefoot because I was just trying on dresses. I’ll wear my heels for my fittings.

    I went barefoot since most salons make you take your shoes off. And I’m not going to be wearing heels anyway as I’m already over 6′!

    I wore heels because it gave a better representation of how the dress would look on my weddisay day. I wanted to know what my “proportions” would look like.

    My salon suggested that I bring shoes the same heel height I plan to wear on the day. 

    For me, when trying on clothes in general, wearing heels makes a big difference in the way I look. Heels elongate my legs and torso and make me stand up straighter in general.

    My salon did not allow shoes to be worn in the store. I knew this in advance so I wore pantyhose under my jeans.

    I’ve only tried on one dress thus far, but unless you’re getting fitted it doesn’t really matter. If you’re comfortable in heels and want to get more of a feel for what it would look like on the day (should you choose heels), then do so. If not, and you want to go barefoot, that’s okay also. Just try to enjoy the process and focus on the dress, so you’re not one of the (what seems to be) many “dress regret” brides!

    I was barefoot. Actually, I wore heels to the appointment but I was barefoot the whole time I tried on dresses. I’m tall though, so half the dresses would have been too short if I were in heels.

    Socks or no shoes, my dress is sort of being constructed by a seamstress and she doesn’t allow shoes in her “try dresses on area” LOL I don’t what words to describe any of this experience.
