Wedding Shoes

Google shows so many choices for wedding shoes when you look on the image screen. How do you know which ones are right for you?

John Saunders PhotographyThe first wedding I went to, I was a bridesmaid for my best friend. We were so excited to go dress shopping and wanted to make sure that whatever shoes we got would match the dresses. We were focused more on what the bride needed and how we could help. Her gown was gorgeous. Honestly, she was the most beautiful bride I have ever seen. She was so happy and I was so happy for her. Honestly, we didn’t think about shoes, other than how they looked. After standing for twenty minutes, my feet started to complain a little. I didn’t care, it was an awesome day. After the formalities and dancing, my feet were sore and blistered… I thought it was because I didn’t break them in enough. So, the next wedding I went to I broke the shoes in even longer, again I went for the look. After the many hours in the shoes, at least I didn’t have blisters this time.

I began to realize that my feet were with me for life and I needed to take better care of them. It was important for me to have comfort if I was to stand for hours on end, I needed to worry more about comfort than about style. I was dating Ron and starting to help him with weddings that he was working. I saw many bridesmaids and brides who were wearing shoes, like I did in the past, and their feet would inevitably hurt. By the end of the night they were dancing shoe-less.

When I married Ron, I decided to have comfortable wedding shoes. This was my day and I didn’t want my feet complaining after standing for several hours. I wore my most comfortable cowboy boots and my feet couldn’t have been happier.

I recommend thinking about comfort before style when choosing the right wedding shoes for you.
