Your lifestyle, your quirk
Wearing heels to big events just seemed to be one of those necessary evils to growing up. Well, no longer. The practice of wearing flats to one’s wedding or prom has become en vogue, and I personally couldn’t be happier. While heels usually signal formality, there’s no reason a great pair of flats shouldn’t be donned for your special day. It makes more sense, honestly; dresses are typically long enough to cover whatever shoes you might be wearing, and besides, flats are ten times more comfortable. Being able to move around in comfort enables you to enjoy whatever you’re doing more, whether it’s walking down the aisle or dancing the night away. Plus, for all you ladies with shorter partners, being able to stand flat-footed may make them feel more at ease. If you’re considering flats for your next big soiree, consider these demure options.
Going to the Chapel
These Caparros beauties at only $75 exude classic elegance and would be a great choice for those who want to keep footwear simple and traditional.
Ivory satin flats from 6pm.com match well with an off-white dress, and at $52 (65% off MSRP), will fit into many a wedding budget.
These ivory flats from RSVP are reminiscent of ballet toe shoes, and stick to a similarly delicate price point at $21.00 plus shipping.
Pink bridal flats from Emmaline Bride can transition easily from ceremony to reception, and are appropriate for brides hesitant to wear white shoes to a winter wedding.
These yellow Etsy flats are absolutely adorable, regardless of the occasion. However, if you don’t care for the strap up style, these purple Zappos.com shoes are a great choice for those with a darker dress or more traditional style.
I wore black dresses to more than one high school dance just because it never goes out of style as a dress color; plus, who doesn’t love a little black dress? My dates were also pretty pleased, since it took the stress out of matching the exact shade with their ties, tuxes, etc. Being a lady in black allows you to add a punch of color or go with some truly unique footwear, like these Mia Parisian Flats from zappos.com. I know $70 may seem a bit steep for a pair of flats, but unlike the tangerine heels you bought for that killer homecoming dress last year, you could conceivably wear these again.
