Tips for Choosing the Perfect Bridal Shoes (Part 1)

Shoes are always a difficult purchase. Choosing the size, the comfort, the color, and the style are enough to drive any sane person crazy. Now, add to that the stress of purchasing a special pair of shoes, your beautiful bridal shoes, and you have a monumental event!

When choosing bridal shoes for your special day, the most important point to remember is to use common sense and not emotions. To help make that decision a little easier, I've put together a list of 10 common sense tips that you should remember when shopping for those perfect little wedding day slippers.

Here is the first tip:

Buy Bridal Shoes That Are Comfortable

Because you will most likely wear new bridal shoes, it is important that they are comfortable. You could be spending hours on your feet by the time you walk down the aisle, pose for photographs, stand in the receiving line, cut the cake, and dance the first dance with your beloved.

When you try on the bridal shoes, make sure you walk around on a rug and take notice of any areas that pinch your feet or wear on a toe or part of your foot. Chances are that if the shoes are not comfortable in a certain spot when you try them on, they will not be comfortable when you wear them for the day.

Once you take the shoes home, you should try to make them more comfortable by wearing them around the house. Do not spoil them by wearing them outside. Wear the shoes a little more every day, gearing yourself up to several hours at a time. Make sure in advance that the shoes are going to make it through the whole wedding day.

Tomorrow, I will talk about more tips for choosing the perfect bridal shoes.
