I have found a "dressy sandal", it has a silvery base, a blue (or pink, I bought 2 pair!) thong, with a pretty flower applique. It also has an ever so slightly elevated heel, as I cannot wear heels, and it is ultimately comfortable.
Question is, does this sound dressy enough for a formal night?

If there's a medical problem that prevents you from conforming fully to the prescribed dress code, conform as closely as possible while doing whatever you must to deal with the medical issue. The standard of dress presumes that one is medically able to comply with it!
You ladies have an advantage. If you wear a full length dress with a fairly full skirt, your shoes won't be very noticeable because the skirt of the dress will hide them.
