What kind of shoes are you planning on wearing?

Most annoying deal for me. I wear a size 10, have very narrow feet and for some reason not all flats fit me. Peep toes look ridiculous on me with my feet being so narrow because it looks like my toes just want to slide right on through the hole lol! I'd like to wear flats the day of but I'm a little worried about being uncomfortable in them because I get very annoyed wearing closed toe shoes for too long. Recently I thought about wearing sandals, like cute beach sandals but then I thought the first dance and F/D dance could get complicated wearing sandals.. mehh I hate shoe shopping.

What is everyone else doing for shoes? Whether it's high heel, low heel or flat doesn't matter. You can specify below if you'd like.. I'm also curious to see how many will be wearing high heels or flats the majority of the day. (reception dancing does not count for this poll if you're changing into flats, slippers or flip flops later)

Re: What kind of shoes are you planning on wearing?

  • I wearing heals with a peep toe, I also hate shoe shopping I wear a 9.5 and have super wide feet.  I was super lucky to have found a pair that are comfortable and cute.  I wear them around my house now so i get use to them and break them in a little.

    I'm wearing peep toe, I'm a 9.5 and wide so it's always difficult shopping for fancy shoes! My feet just roll over the edges and it looks gross! Haha. I say wear whatever is the most comfortable for you, nobody is going to be staring at your feet :)

  • I'm wearing blue glittery toms. I'm not a fan of heels and I want to be comfortable. Plus these are something I can wear after the wedding :)

  • I am wearing 3 inch heels for the ceremony.  I found some size 9.5 Betsey Johnson shoes on eBay and snagged them for $21.00 so I couldn't resist! 


  • Wow!! We all have some big feet, lol!  I thought I was alone in this.
  • I'm wearing Jimmy Choos that are tall but with a platform to compensate for the heel. I am used to wearing heels pretty much every day though because I'm 5' tall and need the height! I have a feeling my feet will be falling off by the end of the night though so I may actually bring my (old) glittery Steven Madden flats with me just in case. I wear them on my commute to work and they are the most comfortable flats I've owned (I usually agree about flats being really uncomfortable).

  • I agree Penny! I'm glad to know I'm not alone either!! I go through hell shoe shopping here because most women are short and wear size 5! Can you imagine?! I always wait to go home and buy shoes.. not that that makes it any easier lol but oh well.

    Bridetobe I'm looooving those Jimmy Choos! Very sexy! I envy you btw, I'm still trying to train myself to wear heels more often. Not working out so well hahaha
  • Nati, I've been wearing heels since I was like, 10 years old, which is the only reason I'm used to it. :)

    Well you're very lucky lol! You know most schools here have uniforms and on certain days of the week all adolescents/ teenagers have to wear dress shoes.. meaning 1"-2" heels for girls. FI says they were always told the purpose is so that once they go out into the business world men aren't stiff in their suits and women aren't trying to walk in heels for the first time looking ridiculous at their first interviews. At first I thought how awful!, but really I'm so frickin jealous haha. If I had ever gone to one of these schools, I'd be an expert by now! Like every other woman around here. And you! ;-)
  • I'm a size 9.5/10 depending on the shoe, and I have bought a few pairs of shoes and still can't make up my mind on which ones to wear so I'm keeping them all. I figure I'll use them all for different wedding related functions or just when I get dressed up to go out. I have a pair of pumps that are amazing and are ivory with rhinestones all over them and a blue soul with I do in rhinestones again, but they're 4 inches. Then I have a pair of peep toe ivory shoes that are 3 inch heels and also have some rhinestones but not the pretty blue soul with I Do. And then I have a pair of purple that are more similar to a strappy sandal with a 3.5 inch heel. As well as 2 different pairs of sparkly flats, but flats always give me horrible blisters so I don't know if I'll wear them. Might just change into them at the end of the night if my feet can't take heels any more. I've been wearing the heels around my apartment while I do things so I get used to wearing them again and break them in.

  • I'm wearing gold flats. I have to wear flats all the time because I have serious knee problems. At 16 I was told I could never wear heels. So flats it is! Anyway, I was really worried about finding shoes because it is not always easy to find comfortable flats in the right colors (i.e. the gray ones I have been looking for) but I found my shoes by accudent one day at DSW and they match perfectly!

    Me too! I wear a size 10 - and people are always like "Omgz - size 10??"

    I'll  be wearing flats - one way or another. I haven't decided on flip-flops or open toe..or sandal or anything yet - because I don't have a dress yet.

    I hate high-heels. Sooo uncomfortable and I feel wicked unsteady on them.

    Wedges are okay - and a possibility depending on the dress.

  • I haven't decided exactly what I want, but it will probably be a sandal with a small heel. I can't wear high heels for long periods of time so there's no way I'm wearing high ones on my wedding day. I already bought slippers for the reception to change into!

  • I'm thinking of wearing flip flops if I can't find any cute flats which I haven't yet.Yayy for big feet I agree! I'm a 9.5 with fat toes lol and can never find flats unless I get a 10 and then when I wear them in they are floppy

  • I saw some really cute wedges at David's Bridal that were comfy when I was trying on the dresses and I didn't fall over in them either!! I have size 8 feet but my feet are wide so I always have issues finding shoes as well! I'll probably bring some flats or flip flops for the reception to change into.

    Jimmy Choos tend to run pretty narrow, I thought, but then I had to size down, so what do I know! They are definitely more TTS than Manolos though.

    <div>I dunno... Heels aren't really good for you as long as you're still growing, I don't know if I'd be happy about my teenage daughter wearing heels. Although I guess you can't tell teenage daughters to stay away from the pretty shoes. I didn't wear heels until well into my twenties and I'm pretty used to it now. It's never too late to learn!</div><div>
