Garden weddings are beautiful. That is, until you not-so-gracefully get your pristine leather stiletto heel wedged firmly in three inches of mucky mud.

We won't chastise you on how bad of a decision it was to wear those in the first place, as most of us really learn it by experience; instead, let us provide you with equally stylish alternatives to wear the next time you get invited to an outdoor wedding. Check out these styling tips: 


1. Block-heeled platforms

Endless praises for the comforting security and additional inches the block-heeled platform generously doles out. Opt for a shimmering version to add a touch of glam to a plain dress, or cop Heart Evangelista's fun, color-blocked iteration. 

TRY: Saint Laurent Farrah metallic leather sandals, Shangri-la Plaza East Wing


2.Ballet flats

Swathed in peach satin, Liz Uy is convincing us that nothing pairs better with a good ol' ballet flat than sultry-sweet, boudoir-ready separates.

TRY: Giovanne The Label Lily ballet flats, P1,550, available at

3.Trumpet-heeled pumps

Behold, the closest you can possibly get to a slim stiletto without foregoing the safety of a thicker foundation. Amina Muaddi's signature sparkly, kick-flare stilts are at the top of our wish lists! 

TRY: Amina Muaddi Gilda mules,

4. Cap-toed slingbacks

Many have vouched for these cap-toed Chanel classics that are comfy enough to wear to everything from drinks out to a quick grocery dash. Aimee Song toned down a perky lavender skirt suit with neutral-colored heels. 



TRY: Chanel Two-tone slingbacks,

5. Strappy low sandals

Sarah Lahbati actually wore her strappy flat sandals to a pal's Hawaii nuptials, so there's a super-solid example for you! Pair it with a slinky slip dress in the color of a soft-focus sunset.


TRY: Milli Talia sandal, P1,990, available at

6. Flat chunky platforms

These are making an unlikely comeback and we're hands-down here for it. Courtney Trop toughened up a billowing, bloom-sprinkled frock with a black pair of chunky platforms, and so should you.



TRY: Zara Jute woven platforms, P2,995, Greenbelt 5

7. PVC wedges

Here's a cool, current spin on the tired ol' wedge your mom left behind in the aughts, care of a simple addition: the clear PVC strap. Maria Bernad pairs hers with crisp bright blue trousers and a clever silk scarf top. You'll be the funnest guest in the place.

TRY: Primadonna PVC strap wedges, SM Megamall
