Once you’ve found your perfect pair of wedding shoes, you want to do all you can to ensure they are comfortable to stand in for a long period of time. Beautiful shoes are great for photographs, but the last thing you want is to be in pain from uncomfortable heels on your wedding day. Here are a few essential tips to making sure your shoes are as comfortable as possible on your wedding day.
Wear Them Around The House
Wearing a pair of new shoes for the first time on your wedding day can result in some very painful feet. Instead, wear the shoes for about 30 minutes every day of the week leading up to your wedding. If the shoes feel a little tight, try wearing thick socks to expand them slightly to take away the threat of blisters. You can also warm the heels carefully with a hairdryer to increase the elasticity of the fabric, which allows the shoes to conform to the shape of your feet.
Scuff The Bottoms
While you don’t want to ruin your new pair of wedding shoes, you should gently scuff the soles on a rough surface to get a little more grip. This won’t damage your shoes- in fact, it could save you from slipping and falling on your big day! New shoes are known to be slippery, which can cause you to focus on your feet and take away from enjoying every moment on your wedding day.
Some people claim that a nice pair of cushioned inserts is even more important than the shoes themselves! There are many types of inserts to choose from, whether you need a full insole for the entire length of your foot or smaller pads just for your arch or ball of the foot. After a long day of standing and dancing, you’ll be thankful for the gel inserts keeping your feet comfortable and pain-free.
