Should I Wear Platforms to My Wedding?

When deciding on the appropriate footwear for your wedding day, there are a few important factors to consider.

Dress Length

Keep in mind that your dress may obscure your shoes entirely, so you'll want to keep that in mind when selecting wedding shoes. Make sure to have your shoe decision finalized when you go for your wedding dress alterations so that your seamstress can get your dress to the perfect length.


Consider your own height and how tall you want to be on your wedding day when selecting shoes. While this is totally up to personal preference, some brides will consider whether they feel comfortable standing taller than their spouse. The most important thing is that you feel confident on your big day, so choose shoes that make you feel best in terms of height.


You'll want to ensure that your shoes are comfortable enough to last all night, so be sure to do a trial run and break in your wedding shoes. Platform shoes are a great option because you don't have to sacrifice style for comfort. If you aren't used to wearing heels often, platform styles are a great choice that are much easier to walk in than your standard stiletto heel. Try on a few different styles and heel heights until you find the one that's most comfortable for you.
