I could do an entire week’s worth of posts on the dressing disasters I see among wedding guests.
#1 – Shoes
I can tell you that if there is a noon ceremony and the reception isn’t until 6PM, then your feet are going to be hurting before the cocktail hour ends. That is why I love these: fold-up ballet flats by Fit in the Clouds that can fit into your handbag. For only $22, I think they are a total bargain and much more chic than going barefoot.

I think shoes are the one area you can skimp on…I found my wedding shoes in 5 minutes and they cost about $20 at payless. Best of all, THEY WERE COMFORTABLE. You don't need to wear super uncomfortable shoes to look FAB on your wedding day.
I agree that you can skimp on shoes. I decided to make this area a splurge since I would be able to rewear them again and again.
THANK YOU! I am so not one of those powerhouse career women who can strut down the city streets from 9am to 6pm in sky-high heels. I can only go about three hours, so I've actually adopted this tip for nights out dancing! I always bring a purse big enough to smush a pair of flats in, and check my bag at the door so I'm not socking people with a purse all night on the dancefloor. Lifesaver! Especially since after hours of dancing, the walk back to your car on tired legs and a tired back, i.e., really bad posture, in high heels is what's most likely to give you pain the next day.
Thank you for your post! These foldable shoes are heels new best friend!
