There are plenty of to-do’s on your wedding list, but your wedding shoes can make or break your day. If you pick a pair of wedding shoes that’s uncomfortable, unflattering, or downright painful, you’ll be sorry you did. But, here are the top five to remember!
Mistakes: #1 – Forgetting to break in your shoes before the wedding.
The absolute last thing you want is to wobble down the aisle or deal with blisters on the best day of your life! Once you buy your wedding shoes, break ’em in. Wear your shoes under your desk at work or take a stroll at the mall to break them in BEFORE the big day. It is more important to feel comfortable in what you are wearing!
Mistakes: #2- Avoiding to use them again.
Comfort and style is the end result. Choose a pair of shoes you love and which is comfortable and stylish, as to wear them again and again. Brides should fall in love with their shoes and want to wear them again and again after their wedding day. It is very important to feel comfortable in what you are wearing. Be brave and do it!
Mistakes: #3- Forgetting the spare pair.
If you are worried about dancing in heels all night, it’s a awesome idea to pick up a flat pair. Stuff happens: heels break, your shoes can make your feet hurt, or you may want heels for photos. And you get two pairs of new shoes – what’s not to love about that!
Mistakes: #4 Skipping the pedicure.
Whether you go to a spa or DIY at home, get a pedicure! A pedicure is not only a luxury you deserve for your wedding day, but a must if you’re going barefoot, wearing sandals, wearing peep-toe heels, or even if you’re wearing closed-toe (you’ll still want your feet to look nice for the beach on your honeymoon).
Mistakes: #5 Wearing the wrong wedding shoes for your dress.
It is best to buy your wedding shoes before your dress fittings, obviously. The shoes you choose will play a huge part in your overall look. If you want to wear flip flops or go barefoot, you’ll want your dress to be long enough to cover your feet. If you want to wear heels, you’ll want to make sure your dress is lengthened to allow for the extra height so it’s not too short; and, the same goes for wearing flats. You should make sure that the length of your dress allows you to wear this or that pair of shoes, if you do not want your dress to drag on the floor.
