The sad truth about heels is that although they look so beautiful, they often hurt to wear for long periods of time. For your wedding I understand the desire to have beautiful heels. The great thing about today’s weddings though, is you can do whatever you want. So if you don’t feel like wearing heels then don’t! Wear whatever you want and stay true to you! If you don’t wear heels normally then don’t feel like you have to on your wedding day. You can wear flats, wedges, pumps, sandals, cowboy boots, or kitten heels. Whatever works for you. They also don’t have to be white. The great thing about this is you are more likely to wear your heels again after the wedding then.
If your concern is having pretty heels for your wedding photos and album, then have two separate pairs of shoes to wear. One for photos and to wear at the ceremony, then for the reception you can change into a more comfortable pair of shoes. This is also great in case your heel breaks, or you find your first pair may not be as comfortable as you thought they would be, it’s good to have a second pair of more comfortable shoes to change into.
Be sure to break in your shoes before the wedding day. This will prevent blisters and help keep you comfortable longer!
Ideally you’ll want to start looking for shoes shortly after you’ve gotten your wedding dress. This way you know what kind of style or look you want if you’re going to coordinate with your dress. It’s also key to have your shoes before your dress fittings. The seamstress will need to know what length to hem your dress at and that will depend on the height of your shoes. You don’t want the dress too short or dragging because it’s too long, so having your shoes beforehand will make sure it’s hemmed correctly.
