    Kyle and I are almost the same height, so I don’t want to tower above him. That’s why I’m on the hunt for some pretty ballet flats! My mom suggested a pair of Isotoners, because who sees your feet anyway? But, no, I’m sticking to ballet flats.

    I wore personalized converse high tops and switched to flip flops for the reception.

  1. I will probably wear ballet shoes for my fiancee is almost three inches shorter than me (yes, how awkward LOL) and I cannot wear heels anymore due to multiple herniated discs in my back. Which is fine because I am 6 feet tall myself. Don’t need to go around looking like a giant anyways LOL.

  2. I wore slingbacks with a 2-inch heel at my wedding. I would have preferred flats, but the dress fit really well — just a bit long — without any alterations, so I decided to leave it as it was and go with small heels.

    I also did a costume change (for a tea ceremony) partway through the reception. The shoes that went with the ceremony outfit were tall heels with buckles at the ankle. And then I changed *back* into the dress and slingbacks afterward.

    Man, those strappy shoes were a pain. I could barely see them underneath all the fabric gathered at my knees as I bent over to buckle them. The slingbacks may not have looked as formal, but they were so much easier to deal with.

  1. No trackbacks yet.
