Shoes

Due to neurosurgery, I lost my balance and cooridnation.  I no longer can wear really nice heels.

I need to find a shoe that is probably no higher than 2" but the kicker is I need one with a wider base/heel.  I see a lot of nice shoes but once I see the heel, I have to dismiss them.

Any suggestions?

    Go to Nordstrom, any department or shoe store (in the evening,when your feet are more swollen).  Describe what you're looking for to a salesperson; he/she will help you.

    Aerosoles and Naturalizer are good comfort lines where you might be able to find something practical that still has some style especially if you don't have your heart set on a white/ivory specifically "bridal" shoe.  (Metallic or color will probably be more re-wearable than white anyway!)  You could also look into ordering shoes in a wide width, online retailers often offer free returns and department stores can sometimes order the wide or narrow width for you even if they don't stock it right there.

    A lot of brides bring a pair of ballet flats or flip flops to change into after the ceremony and pictures, so if you want to be sure you stay comfortable you can pack a change of shoes in a tote bag along with other things you might need throughout the day.  I had a pair of white mary jane style Skechers that I slipped into later on in the day when we went out for drinks after checking into our hotel.

    Whoever said it was supposed to be happily ever after is a big fat liar.

    I have been to DWS and Payless, but I haven't had any luck.  I wouldn't mind a wedge but the heel part is usually 3" - therefore I have to worry about the balance problem.
