Whether you are about to get married yourself or are attending a wedding as a guest, picking the right shoes will go a long way toward having a wonderful night. There are many things you need to consider so you can enjoy each moment with friends and family. Here’s a few things that you should consider.
Most people totally forget that they need to be comfortable… It is going to be a long day and a very long night. If you aren’t comfortable, it won’t matter that the shoes look great because you’re gonna be miserable for the entire evening. A shoe that doesn’t fit very well or has an extremely high heel will put you at risk for developing blisters. It can even lead to your feet hurting so bad that you won’t want to hit the dance floor. If you try on a shoe and it’s instantly clear that it’s not a good fit and is actually uncomfortable, then just forget about it. Look at another pair and try them on instead. When you do purchase a shoe it is best to wear them for a few hours before the wedding to be sure that they won’t cause you misery on the big day.
Many folks also forget that you can dye your new shoes to match your dress. Many shoe stores offer a wide variety of shoes that are able to be dyed. It can be rather difficult to find a shoe that matches a dress perfectly. In fact, many people buy their shoes first and then look for a dress that will work with the shoes. If you are looking for a perfect match, however, and have certain colors in mind remember that you can have your shoes dyed.
Finally, you will want to choose a shoe that has a low heel. Even if you are great at walking in high heels, wearing them through an entire wedding and reception can easily lead to stiffness in your back and ankles. And you don’t want to ruin your experience by being in constant back pain because of high heels. Often when you wear heels you have the chance to sit the majority of the time. If you will be part of the wedding party, however, you will be standing for many hours through the day. Taking pictures, the ceremony, the reception line and dancing can all lead to a great deal of standing during the day. A low heel will reduce the chances that you will be worn out before the reception is over.
Choosing the right shoe for a wedding will make a huge difference between having a wonderful time and being miserable and in pain. The more thought that you put into your selection, the less likely it is that you will regret your decision. Keep the above tips in mind so that you can have the confidence that you will feel and look great from the beginning of the day until the last song plays that night.
