Getting a gorgeous wedding dress is a top priority for brides, but what about your shoes? Style and
aesthetics are an important part of your wedding day, but so is your comfort! You don’t want to be in a
stunning dress on the best day of your life while also wincing in pain as you walk down the aisle. Here
are some things to consider when choosing your wedding day shoes.
Do you wear heels on a regular basis?
If not, heels on your wedding day may not be the best idea. If you
are set on wearing heels, buy them EARLY, before your dress alterations. Test them out a few times
around the house. If you’re uncomfortable after only 10 minutes, you’ll definitely be uncomfortable
walking around in them all day at your wedding. Consider a shorter, wider heel for more comfort!
There are so many cute and comfortable alternatives to heels. Bridal flats, cute sneakers or
cowboy boots to name a few. Keep in mind that if you have a full length gown, they won’t show most of
the time anyway! This can be a cool way to incorporate a little fun into your photos as well!
Keep in mind that if you’ll be outside the majority of your wedding, skinny heels
may sink in the grass and leave you with muddy shoes. If you are set on wearing heels, consider
purchasing high heel protectors like these. They will help your shoes from sinking and avoid a muddy
Best of both worlds.
Did you find the perfect pair of heels, but are worried about being uncomfortable?
Go ahead and buy the heels, but buy a backup pair of flats or sneakers. Wear your cute heels for the
ceremony and photos, and switch your shoes afterwards so you can dance the night away!
Break them in!
No matter what kind of shoes you choose for your special day, make sure you break
them in. Blisters and foot pain are definitely two things you do not want to deal with on your wedding
day! Just in case, pack a couple band aids or blister pads for back up.
