Wild wedges: for when you want a heel, but not a spike #Wedding Shoes#wedges March 16 | Ariel Meadow Stallings offbeatbride This post features offbeat affiliates, meaning that if you buy something featured, you'll be financially supporting this site's mission of bringing awesomeness to readers everywhere. For those of us who have issues walking in heels (and don't be fooled: I love to LOOK at insane heels, but god knows I can't walk in them!) wedges are the perfect solution. You get a little elevation, but with the advantage of a more solid sole — and often the assistance of a little platform. Today I'm wrastling up a few of my favorite wedges. These run the gamut from the more casual, retro end of the spectrum (beach wedding? adorbz!) all the way to glitter-crusted neon space booties for your sci-fi midnight adventure wedding. Oh, and one pair of fuzzy mice. Related Post Yeah, I'm kind of obsessed with these wooden wedges These handpainted wooden wedges from Etsy seller Saigon Socialite are giving me a very special kind of shoe boner.

Love these! 5 agree Reply Frank-n-Furter, it's all over! Your mission is a failure, your lifestyle's too extreme. I'm your new commander…… 5 agree Reply Dear participants in outdoor weddings, Wedges. You're welcome, Moi 4 agree Reply Agreed! I had a bit of an argument with a few people because I wanted to put a note on my website warning the ladies that we'd be on grass much of the day so tiny heels could be a bad idea. Apparently some people thought I was ordering them around and put it in much the same catergory as "all guests must wear olive green". I had a suprisingly hard time explaining that I didn't care if they got a shoe stuck and fell over, but I thought they might. 1 agrees Reply This is PERFECT timing for me as I'm just getting ready for my bachelorette weekend and would like to get new cute shoes, but, there is *no way* I would last in heels all day. I also don't like the cork/rope-y stuff-on-the-bottom-type of wedges (just my own personal preference), so I love the "Cupid Island" one!! (And, of course, mice!) Thanks for posting! 🙂 1 agrees Reply Well, I don't wear wedges (I don't have a lot of principles, but this is one) and even in this shoe-category you've managed to stun me with awesome, fun and over-the-top. You truly are the queen of cybershoe-fun and I salute you. 🙂 3 agree Reply Sad face! Every single shoe that I clicked on isn't available anymore! 5 agree Reply GAH. This is the agony of ModCloth — awesome stuff, but they have it in small batches, so things come and go. That said, check out what they've got in stock now — you may find something you like even more! Reply Will do! Reply Thanks for saving me from having to make this comment myself….It's not the first time this tragedy has hit me lately….I *finally* found the perfect wedding boots and they aren't for sale anymore! Gah! Reply Thank you for posting these! I've had the hardest time finding the perfect shoes for my beach wedding (multiple trips to DSW and I even ordered shoes from China!) but I found the perfect sandals at Modcloth. Squee! http://www.modcloth.com/shop/shoes-wedges/sunset-lemonade-wedge Reply love these espically the neon pink and yellow. Reply Just discovered Chie Mihara shoes… they look comfortable AND cute (here's my favorite wedges they do): http://www.chiemihara.com/Ficheros/MAGIC.jpg Reply Oh god no, the little mousie ones are gone! So much love, they look like tiny little mascot costumes for your feet! Reply I've just finished decorating my own awesome wedges…..I'm not a girly girl and I've never gotten used to heals (I wear them maybe one a year) but I've always been comfortable in massive platforms (from ya olde goth days) so I found an awesome pair of platform wedges from deminoia and covered them in glitter,ribbons and buttons! We're having an outdoor ceremony witha reception on a field and the ground will not be level, so wedges are the way to go! 1 agrees Reply Oh hells yeah! I 'made' my wedding shoes, too! Wedges for a long day of being on my feet FTW!!! Reply I wore Modcloth wedges for my muddy rainy outdoor wedding — they were perfect! Reply If only this post had happened a year ago! I needed heels for my wedding because of my dress (floor length and it didn't look right dragging on the ground) but I can't walk in heels, find most of them incredibly painful and I was standing on grass much of the day. My sister recommended wedges but it was suprisingly hard to find some that were both comfortable and looked good. This could have saved me a lot of time. Reply It wasn't a year ago, but does TWO years ago count? Reply I know I'm late to the party, but these wedges are adorable and amazing. Reply The wedge party never ends. You cannot be late. 1 agrees Reply OOooohhh, I wish they had those mint wedges in another color, like orange. I've found a pair of unworn (!) vintage clog wedges for my wedding, SCORE! Reply I just saw these gorgeous wedges and thought an Offbeat Bride might love 'em too: http://www.modcloth.com/shop/shoes-wedges/makes-me-blush-wedge Reply Wonderful post! I'm definitely a wedge girl, but I recently found the perfect shoes for my wedding… the only problem is that they're stilettos! I was wondering if you have any ideas for turning a pair of stilettos into wedges, or if I should take them to a cobbler and get the whole sole replaced into wedge style. Any input is appreciated!
