In what way? How are they uncomfortable right now? What kind of shoes are they?

What helped me the best with my heels were to practice walking in them and added padded inserts where they may rub uncomfortably like the back.

@meowbride: I wore them in every possible opportunity with socks so as to stretch them. I had no pain on the day, only at the end when I stopped dancing

I added clear, padded gel inserts made specifically for heels. They kept my feet from slipping and were super cushiony. My feet felt so nice the whole night 🙂

I practiced walking in my heels that I wore for the pictures and ceremony, but I also bought a pair of comfy, white wedges that I put on for the reception.  We danced all night, so I figured the best option for me was taking off the stilettos and putting on my dancing shoes Cool

I wore them around the house and in my dress at my fittings.  They were pretty comfortable to begin with, so they held up ok.

 

The biggest tip I can give you is to take an extra pair of shoes in the same heel height to the reception.  I did this as a Bridesmaid or Best Man once and after spending most of the day standing in one pair, the 2nd pair (even though they were just as high) felt like a dream.  So, for my wedding, I had the same game plan it worked like a charm.  My feet still hurt at the end of the night (mostly because my dress was so heavy and I was carrying around all that extra weight + dancing the night away)… but I couldn’t imagine doing it another way! 🙂

@meowbride:  They were just gel inserts from Avon, made specifically for high heels. They have them in any store though. I’ve seen them hanging out at Target in either the shoe section or like where the panty hose and what not is.
