Keeping It Casual Weddings - Comfortable Feet

If you're going to have casual anything, then comfort is high on the list. If you're not used to wearing high heels, then the wedding day is not the time to start, lol.

When I got married, I was used to wearing heels, however, I did wait a little too long before doing my shoe shopping. I wanted a white pair of dress sandals with a heel, so my dress wouldn't drag the ground. I did find a pair of stylish white sandals, but they were at least one size too small. Can you say pinched toes?

Lesson learned, so I'm passing it on to you. Decide what kind of shoes you need, based on what you're comfortable in and how long your dress is, and make sure you shop for them ahead of time.

The other thing that I wanted to share, is that I no longer wear high heels. I have since studied to be a massage therapist and learned a lot about posture, and things that are better for our bodies and feet. I then stopped wearing high heels, and you know what; the calluses that I used to have on my feet have gone away naturally.

If I had it to do again, I'd think that I'd pick flats and also let my toes have some extra room.

May you pick the shoes and also the dress, that are comfortable for you.
