@housebee:  I’m curious to know where one finds “insanely comfortable” heels… seems like an oxymoron to me! 🙂 Would love to find a pair of comfy heels haha.

Actually heels do make you stand up straighter. Not just a myth

Even when i model photographers make you wear heels when you take shots above the waist .. because the posture is noticable.

I have a closet full of heels…it wouldnt seem right that I would cheat on them with something else on the big day. Heels are part of my style and I feel great/ put together when I’ve got a great pair of sky high heels on. That being said- I chose to purchase high heels for my wedding day because thats true to my own style. You should choose shoes that make you feel like a million bucks and if that’s a pair of 6 inch stilettos, wedges, pumps, slingbacks,flip flops or flats then rock it! Hell, if rainboots make you feel special then bust em’ out, Bee! 🙂 Like you said, no one sees them under your dress anyways!

 

On a side note: I am getting married on our family farm with a rustic/chic theme and found these great things for myself and my Maid/Matron of Honor so we dont sink into the ground.

@KingsDaughter:  Heels make people who have poor to mediocre posture normally stand up straighter, by forcing their pelvis into an anterior tilt. They then engage their core muscles to level their pelvis, which in turn lengthens their spine. 

If you have good posture (i.e. you don’t have excessive anterior or posterior pelvic tilt, and you carry yourself with your core muscles engaged and your spine long) to begin with, heels will not improve it. All they’ll do is shorten your calf muscles and Achilles tendon, and in many cases cause foot, back, and leg pain. It just seems so much easier to learn to stand up straight.

I always wear heels so it was the obvious choice for me – i will also be taking lots of shoe photos.

I think heels would still make you look slimmer because they’d elongate your bottom half, even if you can’t see them.  I’m just wearing 1″ wedges though – definitely not a heels girl.

@Omgbunnies:  Well the only thing is they’re pricey (well pricey to me, but I’m pretty cheap lol).  My Fiance bought me a pair of Cole Haans (they have Nike air technology) when they were on sale from amazon for $150.  I have a weird foot size (5.5 W, US) and they happened to make them.  I’ve been able to walk around for 6-7 hours no problem in these.  I think they’re 4.25″

I wore some pretty sturdy heels for the ceremony and photos, but I changed into sneakers pretty much straight after the reception started (so much better!). No one cared what I was wearing when it was heels, but when they saw my sneakers, everyone thought it was a great idea.

1. I’m 5’2 and would like to get at least close to eye level with the fiance on the big day
2. I have larger hips, shorter legs, and a mermaid dress. Any extra height/length I can get added below the knee, the better!

I’m wearing heels because I love love love heels.  I wear them a lot in my regular life and by far feel best in them.  

 

That said, I have fallen in love with these but they are reallllly tall… debating whether I should just focus on breaking them in, or look for a lower heel.  Everything I love that feels special enough seems to be 4″+.  Undecided

@MrsBtoBe14:  Heels change your posture .. well, they make me stand taller and prouder anyway, and also, the dress has a more flowy nature to it – again, this is just based on my experience 🙂

I am pretty sure that I will be wearing some tiny heels for my wedding. I am only 5’0 so everyone is used to there being a height difference between me and Fiance. 

 

I plan on bustin’ a move or two at my reception, don’t want to trip up the aisle and don’t want to be walking around like a fool wearing 4” heels that I can’t walk in!

@MrsBtoBe14:

Personally flats hurt me more than heels so I’ll probably wear heels for comfy reasons.  I’m sure I’ll wear sandals as the night goes on.

I’m DEFINITELY wearing flats, I can’t stand heels for more than 20 minutes! I want open toe/sandal style for my indoor wedding because I hate when my feet get sweaty and hot.

I’ll probably buy something simple like this:
