...and has wide, non-dainty feet. I really can't go down the Louboutin route; I need comfort after a foot injury.Also, I like things to be very plain and simple; no frills or furbelows, but this rules out 95% of the wedding market confused. Must be ivory to match dress.

Any cunning ideas? Thanks smile

Ballet pumps? Are they going to show? If your dress is floor length you have more options.

or these?

Or do you want no heel at all?

these are very plain

these do have baubles, but they're very cute

Also ballet pumps like these (though I'm sure you could find some cheaper)

this website is useful as it lets you search by heel height and it also lists some extra width fitting shoes.

Sorry to disappear. Some really good suggestions here, so thanks to all smile

I particularly like minipie's ones with baubles, although was thinking that maybe I needed straps to make me feel more comfortable that they wouldn't come off halfway down the aisle, leaving me to stand and smile in mute appeal for help....

Elegant Steps have officially the biggest range of wedding shoes in the UK - they have a bricks & mortar shop on the Wirral which is worth a visit if you're anywhere nearby.

I love Rachel Simpson shoes - and now sell them (although shoes aren't my main 'thing'), so if you want a pair (check out the full range on her website) private mail me and I'll send you a discount code. They are quite expensive but lovely.

Well I love these -

Irregular Choice

But you did say plain (and I have ignored that obviously!!) so I also like these -

Snake I have given those shoes as a gift to my Best Friend who gets married next week I just love them [very tight budget so we have all tried to gift her pieces for the day]
They are not that high and seem very comfortable.

Venetia if you're worried about slipping out of them, I would suggest some of those heel gripper strips (the suedey ones)? Helps stop the shoe rubbing there too.

minipie's bauble ones are lovely. Can't comment on the Irregular Choice ones as can't abide any of their shoes!

emsyj - random and slightly stalkery q but were you on YAYW a lot, in the "unconventional/alternative" section, a couple of years ago?
