A lot of brides think they have to wear heels as their wedding shoes. However, flats are better option for you to go with. Especially if you are wearing long wedding gown – your shoes won’t be even visible!
Opting for heels means you will end up in pain and blisters. Dancing all night in 12-inch heels is not a good idea, and you know it. On the other hand, flats are more flattering alternative that will keep you comfy and very stylish. You can even wear them down the aisle.
Before you start choosing your new wedding flats, take a look at these pieces of advice that we have prepared for you. They will definitely assure you flats are great, but also what to pay attention to when choosing the right pair.
Break Them Well Before Wedding Day
No matter which ballet flats you decided to wear, you need to break them well before your wedding ceremony. Bridal stylists advice us to choose closed-toe flats, because they will definitely be more supportive for a whole-day wear. Breaking your flats before wedding day will keep your feet safe from blisters and discomfort.
Flats Should Match The Venue
Believe it or not, you need to choose your wedding shoes depending on the venue location. If your wedding ceremony will take place outdoors, then wedges and block heels are not a good choice. However, if you are going to be married indoors, you can choose higher heels, or flats with a good sole.
Flats are Unique
If you want to be different from the others, just pick sparkly, lace-up flats and don’t worry about your style. Flats are great for upgrading your wedding attire, especially if they some sparkly, details, broches, etc.
Bring Shoes to Wedding Fittings
Don’t forget to bring you shoes to wedding dress fittings. If you are still in a dilemma which shoes to wear – heels or flats, don’t hesitate to bring them both to the fitting. You will be sure your dress alterations are done right, only when you see how long it is when wearing flats or heels. If you still opt for flats, be careful from falling. Use safety pins to shorten the front of your dress.
You Can Wear Flats Again
Unlike some extravagant high heels, flats are great for wearing them again after wedding day is over. If they are chic and classy, you can even consider wearing them to work, or ‘recycle’ them for some other special event.
Always Keep Moleskines Close
In case your new flats still give you discomfort and blisters, don’t be afraid. Make sure to keep blister moleskines close by, and put them immediately after you feel the pain. Also, make sure to break your flats before wearing (very important).
As you can see, flats are perfectly good choice as well as heels. If you want to avoid pain, discomfort, and tripping over your dress, then choose nice, chic flats that you can wear after your wedding day.
