I'm wearing an ivory lace strapless dress and I'm really struggling with what to wear for shoes. I've never worn heels before and I don't think I'm talented enough to wear them. My ceremony is outdoors. I really want to be comfortable because I'll be on my feet all day, but also feel beautiful. Help Me Pick Wedding Shoes 1

    Are you thinking sandals or flats? I bought beautiful white Pearl sandals for my beach wedding and they are perfect!

    I'm in the same boat. I don't wear heels and my ceremony is outside on the grass. Fortunately I just ordered some lovely shoes with a 1.5-inch block heel. You can also find ballet flats or flat sandals. Some even have gemstones or glitter on them! I found mine on Etsy, they were affordable and there's a bigger variety of designs there than what you may find at a typical shoe or bridal store.

    I like Bella Belle flats. Just make sure you're dress is hemmed for flats and not heels

    There are lots of cute flats and sandals for weddings if you don’t want to wear heels once you will be outside of you decide to do a small wheel I would do a block heel.

    I thin you could wear some cute flats or sandals. Your dress is pretty long son no one will see

    Shop locally so you can try them on before you buy. Not everyone is comfortable in or can wear the same styles. Go to Ross, Burlington, Macy’s, Target, DSW, etc

    Also be aware that if you have your dress altered for heels, you will need to wear those the entire night. If you change into flats, you will trip on your dress. If you choose to wear flats, get the dress altered to that height. No one will notice a 2” gap.

    I wore flats for mine. Honestly, you couldn’t even see my shoes under my dress lol. I found my shoes at David’s bridal, they were super comfy all day! I love them, they remind me of Dorothy’s shoes from the Wizard of Oz. Smiley heart Def get your dress hemmed appropriately like someone else mentioned.

    Would you consider wedges? These would offer all around support, and be more comfortable and stable than regular heels. You may be able to order additional fabric from David's Bridal that matches your dress, and customize your shoes through a local cobbler or an Etsy vendor.

    Thanks everyone! I think I've decided to go with some chunky heels. I found a pair that I like.
