@Sparkle Pony:  How thick are the socks you’re wearing? Personally when I wear socks with some of my shoes they stretch the shoe out a bit and then they can be too big without them. I would not purposely scuff the sole of the shoe. Just wear them around the house so that any blisters you might get from them have time to heal before the wedding so that you won’t get them the day of.

I was doing socks, but mine weren’t stretching enough… so I actually bought shoe stretchers 🙂

I can’t remember where I saw it, but putting ziploc bags of water into the shoes and then putting them into the freezer.  Supposed to break them in!

@Sparkle Pony:  If you wont be walking on a lot of carpet before the ceremony in your shoes, I wouldnt worry about scuffing the soles.  A quick walk on pavement will do that just fine.

@Sparkle Pony:  If they’re thin it should not matter much. I understand wearing socks to protect the color, I just wouldn’t wear thick ones.
