When I got married five years ago it was at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden on a Sunday morning. Everything was perfect except for the fact that my bridal party and I basically aerated the Garden’s lawn with our heels that dug into the ground when we walked down the aisle. In fact, in my wedding video there are a few moments where I basically look drugged out or drunk because it was hard to keep my balance in the grass. Meanwhile, as my bridal party of family and best friends stood there supportively of me while I said my vows, they teetered back and forth in an effort to keep their footing. One of my relatives said that they all looked like the Tin Man from the Wizard of Oz.
Yes, stilettos are lovely except when you’re not on solid ground.
