Absolutely need a heel for that in my opinion.

I agree, I think the heel is necessary to complete the look. Sorry OP.

I also think it needs a heel. A wedge would look great!

I think you could get away with wedges, but definitely not flats.

Gorgeous dress and yep, it definitely needs heels.

You might have to practice wearing your new heels at home a few time if you are out of practice. I recommend playing "I'm too Sexy" by Right Said Fred while sashaying up and down your hallway.

Don't be a slave to fashion.  You should absolutely wear whatever you comfortable in.

As long as they're not flats.

laughing2.gif hilarious!

For a wedding you need heels with ANY outfit IMHO.

Why not the pettiskirt OP? It is gorgeous.

You can do a kitten heel if you feel more comfortable being lower to the ground.  Something like this - http://www.lightinthebox.com/patent-leathe...le_p288576.html - in black would look fantastic.

I think you could get away with flats, cool black satin ones or something. I think it would look quite 60s maybe. I'm not good with eras but I'm sure there was an era when they wore fared skirts and flats, rockabilly or something.

I think you could wear something like this OP. This is actually a 'character' dance shoe that I've linked - if you got something like that from a dance shop it would be supremely comfortable and easy to walk in (if I'm getting the right feel from your OP that you don't really like heels?) http://static1.dancewear365.com/shoes/tap-...t-strap-700.jpg

I think flats could work too.

I'd have the pettiskirts for a bit of flare and a longer hemline if you don't have pin legs.

Choose the right sort of flats and you can pull it off.

I personally would wear heels to a wedding but that's because I'd love the excuse to frock up.

#19 Propaganda

You can do flats if you want. Make sure they're cutesy or a bit vintage in style and they should be fine.

Heels could take you from cute to stunning though. Why not wear heels, but bring some matching flats just in case. You'll look better comfortable instead of in pain, no matter what shoes you're wearing.

#20 Feral*Spikey*

Keep the flats in your handbag for after the photos, and for dancing.

Buy a nice pair of heels (not too high, not too chunky) to wear for all the photos and for the ceremonies.

I have several lovely shoes from Sandra Miller and Airflex that aren't too high, but lengthen the look of your leg, and are extremely comfortable (surprisingly so - I can wear them all night). Both brands are usually sold at Betts or Myers, or DJs.

actually its more they don't like me...

i have bad over pronation in both ankles so they roll quite badly and i like being closer to the ground on a more steady surface!

I am looking at a few wedge type heels that i could get away with but am going to wait for my dress to come in so i can make sure it works biggrin.gif
