How To Decide Between Flat Bridal Shoes Or High Heeled Bridal Shoes For You Wedding

Aug 18, 2007
Many women think that the only way to go is high heeled when it comes to bridal shoes but should you always follow the crowd? Over 80% of the women asked the question, "Would you wear high heels or flats on your wedding day?" answered that they would choose high heeled bridal shoes. There are many cases when high heels are inappropriate and after all you not only want to be beautiful on your wedding day but comfortable as well.

Even those that said they would wear the flat bridal shoes stated that the only reason they would wear flats would be if the venue of the wedding dictated it. Some even said they would forego shoes totally if they were being married on the beach. I see this all the time where I live in Florida. Almost unanimously they agreed that there wasn't a chance that they would wear flats if they were going to have a church wedding or if being married in a hotel or even a garden setting. Why are women so opposed to flat bridal shoes?

For most women their wedding day will probably be the single most stressful day in their lives even if it is the culmination of a lifetime of dreaming. With this in mind consideration also should be given to the possibility that high heels present a considerable risk of stumbling or falling due to them getting caught up in the wedding dress.

I believe that all the hoopla over the high heeled bridal shoes comes from the writers of fashion magazines and those on TV shows that feature celebrity weddings. They all espouse the supposed attributes of high heels with claims that they will make the bride's walk look more lady like and sexy. I personally disagree with them and I don't believe that high heels necessarily make a woman look sexier, with the right dress flats or even no shoes at all can look very hot.

Going back to comfort, you must consider that as a bride you will be on your feet for quite a long time. You don't just wear the shoes for the wedding and then it's all over. You will be visiting with guests, friends, and relatives, dancing, having pictures taken and more. Possibly the answer is to have two pairs in the same style and color scheme of your wedding theme. That way you can have a pair of higher heels for your wedding and then the flats for the rest of the day so you are more comfortable.
