The two most important factors in avoiding blisters are 

1) Make sure the shoes fit well and 

2) Make sure the shoes are made well, of quality material.

I am a runner and I swear by Bodyglide. I am not familiar with footglide. I have used Bodyglide with dress shoes succesfully.

May I also suggest that you try to break your shoes in by wearing them around the house. And maybe you’ll break your feet in, too, as you develop calluses where needed.

I used Dr. Scholl’s For Her Rub Relief for a wedding I went to and I really liked it. I actually put it on after my shoes started rubbing my feet and I think it worked. I would suggest trying a few different things out before your wedding so you can be sure it will actually work.

I always use body glide when I run, but I’ve never used it with heels.  With heels I use foot petals for comfort, and I get the little strips that go on the back of my heel, so that may help with blisters as well.

This isn’t a product suggestion, but I break in really high heels by wearing them around the house with thick socks for a couple of days. They rarely give me blisters after that.

I also am a fan of bodyglide for blisters. I often put it on my feet in the morning before I put on sandals or other shoes that might rub. Even though it lasts awhile, I’d throw a stick of it in your emergency kit in case blisters crop up halfway during the event. It can help keep them from being super painful.
