    I would suggest practicing if possible; take them along to a fitting and try walking up and down in them. If you feel unstable in the shop, you’ll definitely feel unstable doing that amount of walking and handling steps. I would also ask if you can go to the venue, and bring a pair of heels in the height and style you hope to wear, and walk up and down several times and see how you feel. Again, if you’re struggling as it is, high heels probably won’t be a great idea with the added weight of the dress and train.

    I was originally going to wear 3.5 inch strappy sandals for the ceremony, and a 2.5inch peep-toe pair for the dancing. Now I have my dress (I’m odd, the shoes came first lol) I’ll be switching that around, and wearing the 2.5inchpair for the ceremony and the 3.5 inch pair for the dancing. Reason being I have to walk about 3 minutes to the ceremony venue, and my dress with the train is REALLY heavy. I felt completely unstable in the 3.5 inch heels, and so decided to go with the lower ones. But for the evening, my dress will be bustled up, so no train dragging about, and because the heels are slightly higher, it won’t drag on the floor, plus I’m better at dancing in higher heels. Could something like this work for you? Ie a slightly lower heel for the ceremony itself, but high ones for everything else?

    @Kimy:  I am such a fan of heels but as pp said I would practice in them. It’s a good idea to wear the shoes a few times before the big day!

    What about having a pair or flip flops, wedges, etc…wearing them for all the walking and carrying a small tote bag with the heels to change into? Thanks always an option as well….just have one of the bridesmaid carry it.

    Personally, I’m not stable enough on heels.  I really need to focus all my energy on staying up- I wil never understand how some girls seem to be born to walk in heels and then others (like me) are all wobbly   I’m just over 5’1″ and my fiance is a little over 6″.  We are having an outdoor ceremony in an old English garden and I am FIGHTING a losing battle with some members of the bridal party to let me wear flats.  I might settle for a low or kitten heel to satisfy everyone and I do agree that they are a bit dressier than the ballet flats.  (I’ll just have to pack those for the reception!) But, I’m not wearing the heels for height– it’s purely aesthetic. I don’t know about you, but being short is part of who I am and I’m totally okay with being teeny tiny next to my fiance on our big day.  That’s just who we are.


    So… Long story short, I think it really depends on what you’re capable of and what you’re most confortable in.  If you must have a heel, maybe settle for a lower, more stable heel to go with the environment you’ll be getting married in.

    Are people going to watch you walk this whole way? If not, I would put the heels on at the last second!

    I’d definitely rock heels.  I’d just make sure not to get super skinny stilettos that would get stuck easily.

    @Kimy:  Oh wow!! Well, will you have someone’s arm to hold? If the shoes are really comfortable, or maybe have a wide heel, I woudl do it. My Fiance is 6’2″ and I’m 5’4″ and I’m definitely wearing heels so we can fit in the same pictures haha!
