When people say "wedding season," I experience actual confusion. Does anyone really have enough weddings to attend to call it a "season?" I personally have been to one wedding since leaving home for college (I attended a few family friends' commitment ceremonies and was a flower girl when I was a baby). One. My friends have all been pretty single or in long-term, non-engaged relationships for most of my adult life.
I didn't know anyone with a ring on their finger until this year and then, like magic... we have not one, but TWO weddings approaching. What? I actually now have to figure out what the heck you're supposed to do at weddings. What you wear. What you don't wear. What you bring (water? is it hot?). Bug spray? Is that a thing at outdoor ranch-y weddings? How on earth do you figure out your shoes?
But really, the shoes, ladies, the shoes. You have to be on your feet and dancing for the majority of the time spent at the wedding. Most of them take place outside during the summer (lawns, gardens, orchards). Do you aerate the lawn with stilettos and let your baby toes bleed out inside your shoe? Do you wear a flat and let your toes get dusty and the soles of your feet black? Do you wear a toe-constricting hot flat?
And then Rockport offered me this stacked heel, ultra-comfy (it's made to wear from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at night, really) strappy black sandal to try out for my upcoming summer weddings. And I think I figured it out. It needs to be a wedge or a thick stacked heel to avoid puncturing the lawn, and the toes need to be free. That's crucial for keeping cool, trust me, it's 90 here so I know.
What do you wear on your feet for summer weddings? I'd love to hear your input on the comfiest and least comfy shoes you've sported, and if you'd try out a super comfortable heel for a long day of wedding festivities.
