    Hi everyone!
    I am only 5'1" and my fiance is 6'2". I want to wear heels during my beach ceremony but know I will sink in the sand. Any suggestions for cute wedged heels that anyone has found? I refuse to wear flops or go barefoot.
    Please HELP!

      Check out Shoes at Zappos.com - The Web's Most Popular Shoe Store! Our shoe store features dress shoes, casual shoes, and athletic shoes for men and women!. You can sort by wedge & see everything they have. I also like shoes.com. Shoebuy.com is OK, but their customer service isn't as great.

      It's free shipping & free returns. returns are really easy.

        hmmmm I would say get an aisle runner so you can stand on that with heels..You shouldn't sink.

        sorry not much help :)

          Unfortunately, I don't think you'll be able to walk on sand with heels even with a runner unless it was made of wood or something sturdy. Where are you getting married? Is there an option of having the ceremony on a terrace or patio overlooking the beach/ocean? Otherwise just both go barefoot and don't worry about the height difference! :)

            Toby had suggested this to me, so I'll suggest it to you. Here's some dyeable wedges. Some are really cute! I plan on making mine orange or pink. I like a little bit of sass.

                I know exactly how you feel. I'm about 5'1 and my FI is 6'0. I bought these wedge heels from David's - they better work. I'm also getting married on the beach with an aisle runner. I was thinking about practicing one morning after we get there just to make sure I can do it.

                Here's the link...

                  Careful girls with your dyeables.. very cute but if they get wet, I heard the color will run.. you'll be fine for your wedding and such, but if you do a trash the dress, or get too close to the water during pictures you might have a problem.

                    I'm wearing them in white so I don't think it'll be a problem.

                    I'm sure if your dying them you should watch out though.

                      When I was looking for shoes I fell in love with these:

                      I loved my wedges, they were really comfortable, and I didn't have any problem walking in the sand.
