HEEL HELP Any woman who has spent a night dancing in her new heels knows all too well that pain is beauty. But it doesnt have to be that way. You can wear heels and dance at your wedding.
Dale Maahs, owner of Dales Shoetique in Greenville, suggests choosing two pairs of shoes. I have a lot of brides who wear one pair for the ceremony and photos, and another pair for the reception, she says. That way you can have the look youve dreamed of while all eyes are on you. Later, switch them out for a favorite pair or even flats during the reception.
But the best piece of advice is to break in the shoes first. Wear them around the house for a week or so before the big event. You dont want your wedding day to be the first time you put the shoe on, Maahs says.
If youre still harboring fears of running barefoot around your guests, consider inserts. They will pad your step and keep your foot in place.
You might also try a lanolin and glycerin lotion. It will keep you from reaching for a Band-Aid halfway through the first dance. It helps prevent blisters from even forming, Maahs says.
