With These Shoes I Thee Wed

It looks like Valentino will be attending my wedding…

I’m not sure what was going through my head when I walked into Nordstrom and walked out with a pair of shoes that I will be paying off for the next ten years.  It just felt natural.

I tried on other shoes but these…just made me feel magical…and really tall! With the extra height I added to my petite frame (thanks to the five-inch heels) I felt like I could conquer the world….then again – The aisle is my runway!

Here are a few tips to choosing your perfect pair.

Walk the walk- Before you walk out of the store, make sure you walk around on the carpet and the tile.  Some shoes, especially if they are brand new can be a little slippery and you don’t want any surprises when you walk down the aisle.

Don’t break the bank- Although I didn’t take my own advice, splurging on shoes wasn’t something I planned. But on the other hand,  I can wear them over and over. They are dressy but not too formal.  If you are looking for wedding shoes and have your heart set of a pair of designer slingbacks, opt for something neutral that you can wear again. If shoes are something you can’t splurge on, don’t fret. There are a ton of great options that you can find for under $100. My favorite discount sites are 6pm.com, Ideeli and HauteLook.

Don’t sacrifice comfort- You will be walking, dancing and maybe even running-but hopefully not away from the altar. Before you buy a pair of shoes make sure you can handle the pain and make sure have a pair of flats handy. Dr. Scholl’s for Her can also be a lifesaver!

Happy planning! xoxo
