I ended up wearing mine to the rehearsal dinner as well as the wedding. I loved my shoes and you couldn’t see them under my wedding dress but you could see them with my cute shorter dress at the Rehearsal Dinner.

I wear mine around the house to break them in and get used to them. However, I try to stay on the carpeted areas so I don’t scuff up the bottoms. Plus, I kind of like occasionally startling Fiance by appearing in 4″+ blue sparkly heels with yoga pants and a t-shirt. He’s pretty amused as well.

I am going to wear mine to break them in, to hopefully stop blisters or soreness.

I wore mine last weekend for a dress fitting, but other than that they are staying in the box. They’re a lower heel height (for me) – 3″ – and fit comfortably, so I’m not too worried about breaking them in. I will say, if you’re worried about strap rub or blisters, the Band-Aid blister block stick works great! It’s like BodyGlide but longer-lasting, and it’s clear.

@LTD418: i’ve worn mine around the house twice to try and break them in a bit, and i plan on doing it more often as the day gets closer….when Fiance isn’t home, of course. 😉

I wore mine for my fittings and also for our dance lessons – we did a choreographed first dance and our private instructor suggested I wear my shoes so I know how to dance in them. They were really comfortable though so I don’t think I’d have had a problem otherwise. It’s usually suggested to wear your shoes around the house to break them in.

Yep, I wore them for our engagement shoot, my boudoir shoot, dinner, shows, etc. I totally didn’t care that they weren’t brand new for my wedding.

I’ve been wearing mine since I got them. I wore them to a friend’s graduation ceremony, her graduation party, a bridesmaid luncheon, and just out and about when I want to dress up a little. They’re still in good shape, clean, and I know for sure I’ll be able to wear them all day long.

I’m only wearing them around the house to break them in. I won’t be wearing them outside until the wedding day.

Mine are slip-on flats, so I’m not breaking them in or wearing them before the wedding.

I did. I wore mine around my house and also for our engagement pics. I am glad I did b/c they were soo slippery at first that when I walked on our hard wood floor at home I almost slipped.. by wearing them I scuffed up the bottoms enough so they weren’t slippery on our wedding day! Thank goodness! No spills on the dance floor for me 🙂

@sn2bmrsmntgmry: That slippery is also something I’m worried about
I think that I’ll probably do what you ladies did and wear them around the house before the day.
