    My dress is on my page.
    Im tall at 5"10 and my partner is exactly the same height normally ln nights out i will wear my heels and he does feel a little bit dwarfed by me so he has requested (nicely i may add) that i wear flats if just for the ceremony. Which is fair enough hw wants to feel taller and.more.masculine so i said thats fine. In all honesty the front of my dress kind of scoops upwards a little bit so you can see my feet when i walk so i didnt want heels anyway.
    I have been looking at ballet flats but they dont give me a weddingy feel, my dress is ivory and has a lace underlay. I was going to wear flip flops but i dont like the idea of the flip flop noise following me.down the aisle
    Lol.
    Can anyone reccomend some good wedding flats? Kind of blingy and comfortable.

    What do you think about sandals? Ive never worn them before... My feet are kind of.wide so im scared of snapping the straps.

    i was actually going to suggest sandals, they sell some lovely wedding sandals out there, dont worry about your feet being wide, so are mine and i have never had an issue with the straps snapping

    What about c0nv3r5e?

    Also, you could buy a pair of ivory flats and decorate them yourself?

    I thought about those Mrs T, i dont think im hip enough to carry off that look. I think i want to feel girly and have a dainty shoe.
    Kind of hard it find a sandal that is the gladiator style

    You could wear ballerinas but get some of those footless sandals for the bling? Have a g00gl3 you'll see what I mean x

    Could you get away with a kitten heel? There might be something pretty in that style without you towering over your OH. X

    i would say get a lovely sparkly sandle, something that makes you feel really girly. Maybe he could buy a new pair of shoes with a thicker sole to give him even an inch extra in height which allows for a kitten heel? x

    p.s. beautiful dress!!!

    Thanks ladies for the advice and Faye for the links.
    Ive found a pair in [email protected] but again im not sure they go with my dress.
    I wish the shop holding my dress would contact me sooner rather than later so i can go try it on again. Last time i saw it was in September.

    I think you should just tell them you want to see the dress again and make sure they make you an appointment to do so. With 6 weeks to go they should be thinking about a fitting by now, at least getting a fitting booked in. At the end of the day it's your dress and you have a right to go and see it if you want to, when you want to xx

    Your dress is quite similar to mine! Except mine has capped sleeves! I have heels for the day (being 5'2" I can get away with it) but for the evening a found some nice pumps in [email protected] They are broderie anglaise fabric. N3w L*0k also have some pretty sandals and flats. Maybe a sparkly shoe would be nice? x

    Primarni special £6.00. Absolutely love them. :-)
    Yes my feet are red and swollen from being on them all day, my apologies. And my fitting date is 16th August.
    Really productive day. Hehe
