- Take Them for a Test-Run. You are not very likely to buy a car that you haven’t had a chance to drive. This same logic can be applied to your heels. Whether you are buying them, or have already bought them, you will want to take them for a test-drive so you know that you can navigate them smoothly on your big day. This will also help break in your shoes to avoid any pain or blisters.
- Test Your Weight. Whether you are using your wedding heels, or a random pair of heels, it’s time to test your core. It’s recommended that you use your wedding heels, so you can be prepared for your big day and you can break them in. Strut around in those heels, and determine where your weight falls. You can close your eyes, get a feel for your core, and take a step. This will allow you to focus the required muscles to maintain a balance. You can open your eyes slightly and take another step. After taking a few more steps, opening your eyes slightly with every step, you will have a good feel of where your core balance is.
- Take A Seat. Wearing heels for an entire day, no matter how broken in they may be, will still be rough on your feet. You can avoid any unnecessary pain by taking a seat every twenty minutes or so. It doesn’t matter where, or what your excuse needs to be, take a seat and give your poor feet a rest.
- Showcase Your Confidence. Is there anything more beautiful that a bride can wear, than confidence? As long as you feel good, you are sure to look good and navigate those heels better than you ever imagined. It is important that, before your wedding day, you are entirely confident walking in your heels! If you have any doubts at all, it may be best to opt for a different pair.
