So now that I have a dress I’ve begun the internet shopping search for the perfect pair of shoes… woohoo!
Just curious, is it better to break in your shoes before the big day? Or keep them pristine for pictures and all? I’ll need to wear them for alterations, but that’s not really breaking in heels…

BREAK THEM IN!
Save yourself from pain on your wedding day. Wear them at home for a few hours over a few days. You can do your vacuuming in them. You can answer emails in them. Dance around your apartment and practice your first dance with your FI in them. If you just wear them at home they’ll stay nice and clean and fresh, but you’ll be WAY more comfortable. Plus, wearing them a bit will let you know if they need any inserts anywhere for areas that might hurt after some dancing.

I bought two pairs of shoes – flats and heels. Both I’ve worn multiple times. Not only did I just need new pairs of shoes, but now I know just how comfy they are / aren’t and can plan accordingly! My mom was HORRIFIED that I was wearing a pair with my FI to a party one time. I felt like I broke her heart, ha 🙂

I left mine in the box until the wedding except to try on during the fitting. Do you have sandals or pumps? If sandals, I vote wear them around carefully… if pumps, you probably dont want to crease them, so leave it in the box.

Wear them around the house so they aren’t that dirty? Haha

I vote = wear them on inside all day. I did that with a pair I bought and got blisters -so I knew to get a different pair to wear!

I say break em in but wear around the house not outdoors or anything. Be very careful with them. I would start wearing them around the house a week before the wedding. I would not recommend not to wear them till the big day.

I’ll definitely be breaking mine in. Even sitting around wearing them and thick socks helps!

I put my on last weekend and kept them on for an hour while in the house. Im happy that I did so, because after half an hour or so…my feet started hurting.
I bought a bigger size the next day 🙂

i didn’t wear my shoes ahead of time and they gave me blisters on the back of my feet that still haven’t healed.

I agree with those saying to wear them around the house. I wouldn’t risk wearing them out, but they won’t get dirty if you stay inside. That’s my plan if I ever find shoes I like!

Definitely don’t wear them out but do put them on a few hours a week and make sure you stand and walk in them. All on carpet! That way you won’t have that weird walk when a girl can’t walk in her shoes. ahaha

If I walk around on my wood floors, it still leaves marks on the sole from dirt and whatnot.
