The High Heel – Outdoor Wedding Conundrum

If you’ve been reading along, you’re well aware I had my fair share of attire difficulties during my wedding. Chief among them? My shoes.

I bought two-inch, thick-heeled, vintage-looking shoes that were a lovely blush color, cute enough for the wedding day but not so fancy so that they would have no use post-wedding. My thick heels were no match for a month’s worth of wet ground. Those suckers sunk right into the ground. And the heels are now seriously scraped up.

Turns out, I had more options than I thought. There are high heel protectors that keep your heels from sinking and getting scratched up, like SoleMates High Heeler above. Another option is Heels Above, pictured below.

Of note: These are for slim heels, so neither would have fit the shoes I wore. That said, I chose my shoes because I thought they wouldn’t sink into the grass. If I had known about these products, I could have gone with those slimmer heels I was wary of.

How about you: Would you wear a heel protector for an outdoor wedding?
