Tips For Wedding Shoe Shopping

You ve finally found photo 3440776-1


You’ve finally found your dream wedding dress, and now you need a pair of shoes that
are stylish and comfortable, too.


Read these 5 tips before hitting the shops and we guarantee your Cinderella moment
will go smoothly!


1. CONSIDER YOUR VENUE.


When shopping for your perfect pair it’s important to keep your celebration space in
mind. For instance, serious stilettos probably aren’t the best match for a
beachside ceremony—flat sandals might be a better fit. Likewise, heels can be
problematic on green grass (you don’t want to get stuck in the lawn!), so pick
wedges if your wedding is outdoors.


2. KNOW YOUR COMFORT ZONE.


Those 5-inch platform pumps might look super-sexy in the window, but how are you
going to manage in real life? If kitten heels are more your speed now is not
the time to experiment with sky-high stilettos. Stick to a shoe style and heel
height that you have worn before. You want to be comfortable and in command
during your walk down the aisle, not teetering and tripping!


3. TAKE A RISK.


When it comes to wedding shoes, there really are no rules anymore. Pick white satin
or black patent leather or leopard print—whatever your heart desires.


4. BREAK THEM IN.


Get to know your wedding shoes before the big day. Wear them around the house, and
make sure to scuff up the soles a bit so they’re not slippery. Figure out where
you might need to wear Band-aids, or whether you need insoles. Your perfect
pair should feel like a second skin by the time the big day rolls around.


5. BRING BACK-UP.


When in doubt, pack an extra pair of flats for your wedding reception. Even the most
comfortable party heels can start to hurt after countless hours on the
dancefloor. We suggest picking up a pretty pair of ballet flats or jazz shoes just in case.

This is awesome advice!!! I am SO glad I brought a pair of flats because even though I broke mine in, I ended up going barefoot for the entire reception - my feet were so sore after the ceremony!!!
