Shoes . . .
We all wear them. And no pair will be more important, or have more thought put into, than the ones you’ll wear on your wedding day.
Your wedding shoes:
- are the perfect accessory for your wedding gown
- will be photographed
- will be oohed and aahed over by your guests
But you’re going to be on your feet for seven to eight hours straight easy, and . . .
There’s nothing worse than painful blisters, pinched toes, and hurting feet, especially on your wedding day.
Avoid hobbling around the next morning by:
- Skipping narrow styles and opt for a pair with a wide toe box
- Choosing a moderate heel (2 – 2 ½ inches is good)
- Wearing those stilettos you’ve been dying to wear for the ceremony, then switching to something lower for the reception
- Practicing walking in your shoes before your wedding day
- Using cushiony insoles to help protect the bottoms of your feet
- If you frequently get blisters, applying a blister preventative (try Dr. Scholl’s Blister Treatment or Sole Goddess Blister Protection Foot Balm), before putting on your shoes
- Having blister treatment, such as Band-Aid Advanced Healing Blister Cushions, on hand in case your feet do start to rub
Hearts, Joy, Love!
