Flat shoe help!

Hi everyone,
My fiance is about an inch shorter than me and I have been on the hunt for some flat or VERY low heel shoes for my wedding, but can't find any that look nice. My dress is ivory and has some embroidery and sparkle on it.  I was thinking about doing the ballet slippers, but can I wear those to the ceremony also, or are they only good for the reception? Any recs on where I can shop  for nice flats either in person or online?
Any help or opinions are greatly appreciated!! Thank you!

    I guess you're right, they would be okay for a ceremony too- I wasn't sure if there was any sort of ettiquette (I know a lot of people change into ballet flats at their reception for comfort reasons) or if I should have fancier shoes for pictures -although I suppose noone really will see my shoes at the ceremony anyway! Thanks for your help!

    No one will even see your feet, unless you want them too of course!  Wear what you're comfortable in. I say go with the ballet flats!

    My girlfriend wore white sneakers.  I had no idea until she told me afterwards.

    There is also a store called "Added Attractions" in Garwood that carry many flats and another that is more expensive in Chatham with the most shoes Ive seen called Model Bride.

    I got gold slippers that look like ballet flats from cole haan. They are the most comfortable things in the world and really cute. And they were under $100 which made me very happy.
