Wedding Wedge Tips
Before you start your search for the perfect wedding shoe wedges, consider the following tips:
1. Find the right wedge for your specific wedding. Take into consideration where you'll have your ceremony and reception; the style of wedge wedding shoes you choose should accommodate the type of ground you'll be on. Shop around and try on different styles of wedding wedge heels before committing to one so that you're certain your choice is the best fit for your wedding style and theme.
2. Don't forget to break your shoes in. When you're standing around for two to three hours taking pictures with the entire wedding party, your thirteen cousins and a dozen work friends, you'll be glad you took the time to break your shoes in months in advance. One good way to do this is to wear them around your house to do housework; just be careful to keep them clean! And if you find they're hard or painful to prance around in (even with practice), consider swapping them out for something else.
3. Accessorize! Dolling up your wedding wedges with brooches and shoe clips is fun, but here we're talking about accessorizing your shoe to give you maximum comfort. From arch inserts to toe protectors, make sure you add the necessary padding to give you all-day support.
4. Have a spare pair of shoes. Experienced wedding planners recommend always carrying an extra pair of shoes for your wedding. They know that tired and sore feet or a wedding wedge with a broken heel or strap can ruin a bride's night in about 3.5 seconds.
5. Consider getting a pedicure. Treat yourself to a little bit of luxury and stress relief with a pedicure. Not only will you feel more relaxed, but you can also choose a fun polish that complements your kicks.
