Hot wedding debate: Heels versus flats!
Do you know that some brides tape their toes together to get through the wedding day without too much pain? Yes, the recommendation is to tape the third and fourth toe together to relieve pressure on the soles. It sounds like a torture method during medieval times, we know. Nowadays, it’s completely unnecessary..as women can choose from a wide range of bridal sandals for their special wedding day.
So, the hot debate is not really a debate, if you consider some aspects such as:
- You shouldn’t wear heels on your wedding day if you are not familiar with them.
This is probably one of the most common mistakes brides make and it leads to unnecessary pain and discomfort. Keep in mind that you need to feel comfortable and have the freedom to move around like a queen on your special day, so go for flats!
- Even if you are used to heels, keep in mind that you’ll be wearing them for many hours, while dancing….kissing….drinking…yeah…you get the point.
Even for women who wear heels to work daily, wearing them on your wedding day can be very different. Keep in mind that wearing them to office is not the same as dancing on them for hours. Wear flats comfortable sandals!
Choosing the wedding sandals – frequently asked questions
