I was thinking about doing the same thing because I LOVE my shoes and want to wear them already. BUT to me, I want them to be a surprise on my wedding day. I want to poke my foot out of underneath my dress and be like "look at my shoes!!!" while everyone gasps and says "oh those are so cute!" But if I wear them early there will be no gasping and no oooh-ing and aaaah-ing. As far as it being taboo, I have no clue i’m sorry!

 By the way I think your shoes are amazing! Love em!

First off–I love your shoes.  So cute!

 If you really like your shoes and are ok with wearing them twice then go for it!  You always hear people talking about getting more wear out of their bridal shoes, and that’s a great way to get that done.  Plus, it’s one less no worry when you don’t have to find another pair of shoes for the rehearsal.  Do it!

I say go for it! 

It will also help break them in a little more before the wedding.

Definitely wear them!  Not that many people are going to notice them on your wedding day.  The only downside that I can think of is if they make your feet hurt enough that you don’t want to wear them two days in a row. 

P.S.  I love your outfit!  The shoes and the dress go together perfectly!

Those are so cute, you should certainly wear them as much as possible!

I love your shoes!

I’d definitely wear them and I also think your Maid/Matron of Honor is right.  If it makes you feel better, I’m planning on wearing my wedding shoes (cute yellow flats) to two other weddings and probably a bridal shower.  I just want to get as much mileage and use out of them as possible, otherwise personally, it feels like I’m wasting money!

i definitely think you should wear your wedding heels to your rehearsal dinner, they would absolutely darling with the dress and you should get as much wear out of them as possible! plus, you need to break them in anyways!

as for the whole element of surprise…i personally think that its not the dress, so not a big deal. also, the rehearsal dinner is typically only for immediate family and the wedding party, not a mini wedding (but really, its up to the couple of course) so only a select few will see them and there will still be the surprise wow factor at the wedding for the majority of the guests! if you think about it, 2 days of compliments on your shoes lol.

i personally am in complete love with my shoes and want to wear them as much as possible!

thats just my opinion, i hope it helps!!

Yep, unless you were really hoping to keep all the aspects of your wedding day wardrobe secret, I saw do it!! How cute! And there are an unfortunate shortage of events that call for lovely white heels. Sigh.

I’d totally wear them! Besides, it’s an old theatre rule of thumb to rehearse in the shoes you’ll be wearing on the big day – so go for it!

as long as you don’t get the soles all smudgy – you don’t want your dirty footprint in your bridal photographs!  That’s the only reason i wouldn’t wear mine.  I tend to not watch where i’m going, too, and i get heels caught in sidewalk cracks, step in poo, etc.

I was thinking about doing that too! I vote go for it! Who cares anyway?! It’s your wedding. Plus.. it might help “breaking them in” on the same ground so you have less chance to fall.

Good luck!
