Buying heels is a serious business, buying the right ones even more so.
It is your wedding day and wearing the right shoes on every event could add more comfort while maintaining the extravagance of your bridal attire. The proposal; the ring; the wedding date; the dress and then the heels…or is it the heels first and the dress to match with it later? Whichever way it is, there is no denying that heels make or break the entire persona of the wedding dress! Buying heels is a serious business. There are so many beautiful pairs, and I for one always get confused about which one to choose! Let’s take a look at some of the points to ponder on when looking for heels for the big day.
Wedding shoes like any other footwear should be the right fit. The heels should be the perfect length so you can walk easily during the whole event. Even if you aren’t doing any walking, the heels should not hurt your feet. They come in different sizes and shapes so choosing a comfortable heel for the big day is a major task to complete.
Heels with a thick strap over them minimizes friction and restrict movement. This increases the chance of blisters that you definitely do not want on your special day! A laced up ankle strap will be more supportive as compared to a standard stiletto with no strap.
Feet have different shapes, widths, and sizes with bumps and lumps, but shoes only come in widths and sizes. The most important part is to look at the angle of the heel. The wrong angle type can be very painful for your feet, and you don’t want to spend your special day worrying about your feet!
Soft leather is the best choice for a durable heel so keep that in mind when searching for your pair. Another precaution would be to place counter arch in your shoes that will help in solving arch fatigues and muscle spasms on the big day. They will also lessen the ball or burning of the foot pain while you’re wearing a 4-5-inch heel. Inner sole padding will also do the trick. Swelling, burning, redness and jamming will no longer exist and you will be able to party for as long as you want. It’s your big day after all!
Being used to walking in flats makes it hard to walk in heels. But your heart just sets on heels for your wedding and you definitely have to wear them. They say practice makes perfect and it applies in the case of heels as well. Never slip in your wedding heels for the first time only on the day of your wedding. You never know when you take a fall and make a joke out of yourself! Walk in your heels for a few days before the wedding so you get used to them.
At the end of the day, just take off the heels and pat your feet for giving such a great performance. Keep in mind the tips above and get to shopping!
