Breaking them in
Let’s face it, girls love heels, and so come your big day it is probably safe to assume you have worn a fair few pairs of heels in your time. Therefore you probably know it take a few wears to break them in, get them moulded to the shape of your foot and get them extra comfortable. If you just try on your wedding shoes once and then leave them all pristine and perfect until the day of your wedding, chances are after wearing them for an hour or so you are going to find little bits that niggle, pinch, rub etc. So give yourself a break and wear your wedding heels around the house a few times to stretch them out a bit and get them comfortable. You can use thick socks to help add a little give to your shoe, or try putting a bag of water inside them and putting them in the freezer (a little strange we know but it won’t damage your shoes and as the water freezes it expands therefore stretching them out without you have to do any of the work)!
Do a bit of foot DIY
If you’ve found the perfect pair of wedding shoes, yet don’t feel like your feet at getting much support then why not take matters into your own hands and add some cushioning yourself -it really can make all the difference to your comfort. Invest in some shoe cushions to improve the fit of your shoes and fill any of the gaps that might make them rub.
Have a backup
There is no shame in admitting defeat and come the end of the evening, or when the dancing begins you may have to accept the fact that your 4 inch glass stilettos just aren’t going to work for you anymore. If this is the case and you can’t bear the pain then you will be seriously glad you have a comfortable second pair of shoes that you can quickly slip into to then hit the dance floor! Let’s be honest, no one is likely to notice by that point anyway!
