I Wore no shoes to my wedding? I mean like if I wear heels I’m going to be itching to take them off by the end of my walk down the aisle. and if i wear sneakers I’m pretty sure my traditional Mother-In-Law will have something to say about it. So I might as well walk down the aisle Barefooted. Plus my foot is a size 10.5 or 11 and I have yet to see a sexy pair of ballet flats in my size.

Maybe some cute sandals? Depending on where you are getting married and the surfaces you’d be walking on, I’m not sure barefoot is the best idea… but lots of people who get married in hot places or on beaches do the sandal thing.

my first wedding was a barefoot wedding.. it was on the beach..and it was beautiful .. I say if you want to be barefoot …go for it

I think it definitely depends on your location. Beach = perfect, church = eeks, no!

what kind of shoes do you wear now then? like today?
is this a beach wedding? i think if it is on the beach, no shoes may be okay.
church = unclassy.

I have no clue on venue yet but Alaska doesnt have many great beaches so probably will be in a church or a hotel. And I Wear mainly sneakers anyway.

If it will make you happy and won’t affect anyone else, I say do it. Just be mindful of your location, as others have said. You want to be comfortable, but you also don’t want an injury.
When I see pictures of a barefoot bride, I think, “Oh look! She’s having so much fun, she just kicked off her heels and got right into that party all the way!”
Also, having been to half a dozen weddings, and been in more than half of those… I have yet to be witness to a wedding where every woman has kept her shoes on the entire time. Bridal party, guests, whoever… with any party long enough, there’s a good chance those shoes are coming off anyway. 🙂

I’m not sure about unclassy, but I know I’d be thinking about the potential germiness of the floors in some high-traffic areas. Is your dress long enough to cover your feet? If you’re happy with barefoot, go for it.
I feel for you on the shoe issue. I wear an 11 and have “suffered” without cute shoes for many years. You mentioned ballet flats–what qualifies as a sexy ballet flat for you? If you’re still considering shoes, throw out a few requirements and I’m sure the recommendations will come in. You’ve got access to the F.Bee.I. The ladies on this board can find the most obscure treasures.

I attended a wedding were the bridesmaids didn’t wear any shoes at a church ceremony. I think they couldn’t decide on a shoe. I think your Mother-In-Law would prefer you wearing tennis shoe as opposed to no shoes at all.

I’m totally going to wear sneakers, I’m thinking yellow converse. My mom keeps trying to talk me out of it, and honestly, just makes me want to do it more, haha. Sometimes I am still such a child. But I have NEVER liked “fancy” shoes. Plus, I think my feet would hurt soo much if I didn’t wear sneakers. Sometimes when i do wear flats my feet ache within a few hours because i’m used to my sneaks. What about jazzed up flip flops? My mom was trying to talk me into that, too. How long is your dress? I intentionally picked a dress where no one would see my feet.

First off, forget anybody else or what ur traditional Mother-In-Law will think…if you truly want to and are comfortable with it, do it. But personally, location is KEY for me. Like PP mentioned…if you’re walking down the aisle in a church..eeekk yea I would def think it is out of place

I agree with PPs, an outdoor ceremony or at a beach? Classy.
Church? Not classy.

I wore size 11 ballet flats, which I got from elinor44 on eBay. The first two pictures show details; the third one shows them peaking out from under my dress on my wedding day. They were very comfortable–just like bedroom slippers.

@2dBride: I’m willing to buy your shoes if you ever want to sell them.

@sosnowsexy: definitely don’t go barefoot if it is indoors. if you are wearing a long dress, you can wear whatever makes you comfortable. it will be covered, even your Mother-In-Law won’t see it.
