This past weekend I got to be a bridesmaid in my friend's wedding. And besides getting the dress to fit right, I knew I needed the perfect shoes in order to be able to stand all day and bust some moves on the dance floor. So whether you are in a wedding, the bride-to-be, or just a wedding guest, you need comfortable shoes! Here are my tips for finding the perfect wedding shoe.

When shopping for the perfect wedding shoe, the key is the heel. I try to look for a low heel under 2 1/2 - 3 inches. Even better if the front of the shoe is "platform" which means that in reality your heel elevation is only an inch or so. So even though it looks like you are wearing heels your feet feel like they are just walking on a flat surface. A game changer!! Secondly, I would opt for a chunkier or block heel. This is great for any outdoor weddings so you don't get stuck in the grass or dirt as well as just creates more stability with movement.

Now this step is super important that most people forget and can get you in trouble at the actual event. Do not forget to have a try on session in these shoes. I typically put the shoes on at home so they do not get ruined and wear them around the house for at least 30 min to 1 hour. This is critical because if the shoes are to hurt they most likely start hurting or rubbing within the first hour. When trying on your shoes remember to be up moving around not just sitting on the couch for an hour with the shoes on lol. If at any point you feel that the shoes are uncomfortable, then return them and keep looking. Trust me, it will not get any better!! I love these for the bride or bridesmaids, a clean and classic look.
