If you are one of those shoe lovers out there, you must have thought long and hard about how you want your bridal shoes to look like. And let's face it, there is nothing sexier than a pair of sky high sparkly stilettos. Unfortunately, we all know the problem with wearing heels for a long period of time; pain! So what's a bride to do, so she can last throughout her wedding looking tall and wearing heels? Here are six tips for picking out your wedding shoes:

1. Don't Go for too High Heels

I know this may seem like an obvious piece of advice, but if your heel is not too high, you have a better chance of being able to withstand wearing them all night.

2. Practice Makes Perfect

If you are one of the petite ladies out there that needs to wear heels on her wedding day, then start practicing. You need to get yourself used to wearing heels, so that your feet can tolerate a few good hours not just 30 minutes. The more you wear heels, the longer you can last in them. 

3. Break in Your Shoes

Do not wear a new pair of shoes for the first time on your wedding day. You want your shoes to fit you well, but not give your painful ulcers. Wear your heels around the house a week before your wedding. To avoid any pain while you break them in, try wearing socks. 

4. Platform Shoes

And you're in luck, platform shoes are trending now. Fine a pair of cute platforms for your wedding, they hurt a whole lot less than stilettos.

5. Wedge Sneakers

If you need to wear high heels, you can wear them for the first half of the wedding and switch to wedge sneakers later on.

6. Patches for the sole of your feet

Go on the hunt for gel insoles. These soft patches are placed on the inside of the shoe to keep your feet a little more comfortable.
