As you may already know, I’ve just spent five (long) weeks in a cast, and now I’m stuck in flats, which got me thinking about the choice to wear flat shoes on your wedding day. I’m a little over 5 foot, my husband is 6″4, and I love wearing heels, but by the end of the day I was sooo ready for some flat shoes! Here are a few reasons you might consider them too.
Rock Flats on Your Wedding Day
Everyone has their own preference when it comes to the shoes they’ll wear on their big day. Some of us have feet that have adapted to wearing the tallest, most uncomfortable heels known to man (usually me), others can’t seem to walk in anything that’s taller than three inches, whereas many people find heels really uncomfortable, and we only want you to feel good on their wedding day. As long as they match beautifully with your stunning attire of choice, you can wear any shoes that your heart and feet desire.
Why flat shoes make perfect wedding shoes
Okay, so forgoing shoes altogether may not be a realistic choice for everyone, but don’t knock flats off your list before you try them. The main focus of your wedding guests really won’t be your wedding shoes, but what they will notice is the attitude with which you wear them.
Here are a few reasons to find perfect flats for your wedding
1) No one will even notice
As most brides wear a dress long enough to cover your shoes, most of your guests won’t know what shoes you have on. A dress that grazes the floor will keep your shoes hidden while still giving the illusion of height.
2) You’ll wear your wedding flats again
The fashion writers from Glamour have advised readers to think twice about those bedazzled stilettos, which will be much harder to wear on a regular basis, compared to satin flats that can be blended into a variety of outfits.
3) You’re expected to dance at your wedding
No one wants to see a bride sitting at the table all by herself while everyone else is tearing it up on the dance floor. With all the planning that went into this day, you need to do everything to keep yourself happy, from head-to-toe, and giving yourself the opportunity to bust a few moves on the dance floor.
Your wedding is about you (and your future spouse, of course), so prioritise what will keep you happy on your wedding day. If that means swapping traditional bridal heels for elegant white sandals, go for it, by all means!
4) You’ll be More Comfortable
Not only do flat shoes look amazing, you’ll also be comfortable all day (you’re on your feet for about 5,000 hours on your wedding day, you know that right!). If you don’t want the extra height, don’t feel like you need to wear heels, you’ll be so much more comfortable in flats!
Still not convinced…? Here’s a few which might just change your mind.
