I have a number of dresses on order to be delivered this week and I think a nude

Oops...

I think a nude shoe would be best even though I know nude is very cliche nowadays. We're taking our toddler so I can't imagine wearing a 4.5 inch stiletto all day but I do need height. Any ideas what style of shoe I should go for?

Hah. Trainers. wink

Mid heel wedges will give you height, comfort and stability.

Any shoe that makes you look & feel beautiful grin

I would wear this sort of thing. Retro, lowish heel but with straps and supportive. Would go with a multitude of dresses, come in various colours. Job done.

Doc martens. Any time, any place, anywhere.

i wore them to my own wedding, they were very comfy.

personally, I might well go for a metallic flat - or a metallic mid to low wedge, depending of course on how it sat with the hem line etc

I would personally go for exactly the same as Herecomes would just caution against Hotter. They really are incredibly frumpy and you could get many more glamorous flats.

I don't like all if Hotter's range, by no means! grin

However I do quite like the ones I posted, I am not proud. Should I blush?

2 pairs. One for ceremony and photos, another pair for the dancing and running etc.

Wedges. Comfortable but with height. Also, rope someone else in to do the running after the toddler smile

A man could be, quite justifiably, be roped in for the running. They wear flats as a matter of course and are often quite proud of athletic prowess IME...

Ballet flats

I would ditch the toddler and wear high shoes!

Whatever shoes you want!

I went to a wedding my my DD was almost 2. I went flying in my (beautiful) shoes when I was trying to chase her.

It was the most embarrassing moment of my life. The wedding was full of strangers and work colleagues. Then I couldn't find DH for about an hour and stood with DD and a really swollen knee while inwardly dying..

Flats? smile

Wedges. In the interests of research I just ran across the (quiet) road I'm walking on in my 2 inch wedge ankle strap sandals and they were fine. But do try on as not all wedges are equally comfy/practical

I can't link atm but have a look at the www.enbrogue.com blog. She did a post about flat wedding shoes a little while ago. Some nice ones iirc.

There are some lovely block heel sandals around with an ankle strap. I bought some cream ones as I am getting married and I won't last the whole day in my ridiculous heels!

Hughfearnley - where are you cream ones from?
