There are two types of women in the world: those who have been planning their wedding ever since they were little girls and those who don’t admit it. Leaving all jokes aside, there is some truth in this. Our society is still built around the institution of family, so the wedding itself means a lot of pressure put on women’s shoulders, who perceive it as a “rite of passage”.
So, on the most important night of your life, you have to look and feel your best. The spotlight is on you, so you have to be spotless. Yet, with all the places you have to go, all the customs you have to respect and all the guests you have to please, you undergo a lot of stress which doesn’t really go hand in hand with your dream wedding, does it?
There are a lot of unpredictable things that can happen, but there are some elements that you can plan. Like shoes, counted among the most important pieces of your wedding outfit – both in esthetic and in practical terms. Because, let’s face it, a pair of sore or bleeding feet is the last drop on top of everything, and this is how the name bridezilla was invented. Trust me, there’s nothing scarier than an angry bride.
Luckily, shoes, like those on TwoComfyShoes, can be carefully chosen, so as to be your secret helpers. The only trick is to know how to, so I thought to show you some criteria to look for when you’re searching for the most comfortable high heels for your big day. Yes, they do exist! Here are some tips on what to look at to determine whether the pair you are trying on is the right one and below are several shoe models among which you can find some very comfy ones.
1. The T-Bar sandals can provide your feet the support they need in order to walk you safe and happy down the aisle. The high heels are counterbalanced by the bars which anchor your leg into the sole. They have quite a wow-effect as well!
2. Peep-toe wedges are your spine’s best friends, as they allow your weight to be distributed throughout the entire sole, not just the heels. So these shoes can do the trick for the day, giving you the extra height you’re looking for, the comfort and the je-ne-sais-quoi factor.
3. Platforms are a great solution for those of you who are not accustomed to wearing high heels. They can add some inches to your height without putting so much pressure on your ankles, as the entire sole is lifted up a notch.
4. Of course, if high heels are not for you, there’s always the flat alternative. And I do recommend you carry one pair of flats in your emergency kit, especially if you want to hit the dance floor later on. And they look great with mini dresses as well!
5. Converse shoes are chosen by more and more brides for their practical side, but also for that hippie style they bring to your outfit. It’s a mix of glamor with a trashy style. All in all, they are just perfect for a nonconformist wedding, definitely being the most comfortable wedding heels ever worn!
Some bonus tips for all the brides-to-be: before the big day, try to wear your shoes at home as much as possible, just to make sure they don’t rub against any parts of your leg, thus causing wounds. Also, if possible, have a pair of spare comfy shoes with you, just in case. And do not forget to put some transparent band aids in your purse, they can be very handy.
