Tuesday Tips | Volume 9 | Your Vermont Wedding Planner

Happy Tuesday!  It's officially February here in Vermont... well, I'm assuming it's February everywhere else too but for us this particular month is extra special!  February is a month of birthdays for the ladies in my life.  Both of our daughters, Madelyn and Mirabelle, are February babies and my Mom, Trish, is too.  It's a month of celebrations!  When I think about partying all night long, I think about wedding nights and that always brings me to one thought...  What am I going to wear on my feet?  So here we go with today's Tuesday Tip...

Wedding days are long.  There is no way around it.  You'll definitely be on your feet all day and well into the night.  If your feet are uncomfortable on your wedding day you will not be happy.  So what to do....  Well, let's start with heels.  If you have your heart set on heels for your wedding day make sure you break them in early.  I would suggest you start a few months ahead of the wedding. Also, consider ordering them slightly larger than needed as your feet may swell a bit on that night.  Another good tip for you heel loving brides is a bit of deodorant is a good buffer between the straps on your shoes and your feet.  I've had a lot of brides use that trick over the years.  You also might want to consider getting two or even three pairs of shoes for the day.  Strappy heels are great for photos and the ceremony but then maybe you switch into a cute flat or wedge to dance the night away.  If you say no way to heels in general, don't do it on wedding day.  This is definitely not the day to try something new.  If you prefer a little height or you have an outdoor wedding perhaps a pair of wedges would work perfectly just like they did for our bride Katelyn, whose adorable Lily Pulitzer's are featured above.  Perhaps you've already decided on flats, all day, but nothing too casual.  This Christian Louboutin Follies Strass Flat might be a perfect fit for you.  BHLDN also has a line of super cute reasonably priced bridal shoes, everything from flats to heels and oxfords to wedges. Kate Spade has these Just Married Ballet Flats in mint green or blush if you really want something for late night that is incredibly adorable and comfortable.

Another way to go that is super popular right now is a cute sneaker.  I know my girl, Lizzy, will be rocking some custom ones at her wedding this year.  If custom seems out of reach for you I would definitely recommend the new line of wedding days sneakers that's a collaboration between Kate Spade and Keds.  They're pretty darn cute, check them out here:  Keds X Kate Spade New York.  Lastly, I would recommend that if your wedding is outside, look around for the cutes pair of rain boots you've ever seen and make sure we can have them overnighted, just in case.  That last tip goes right along with our blog post 'Always have a Rain Plan for your Vermont Wedding'.   Have you noticed that we refer back to that one often? :)

At the end of the day it's all about your style and what shoes you are most comfortable in.  I really do think that changing your shoes throughout the night works well. I would be more than happy to hold on to that extra pair of shoes for you to change into late night.  If your feet are happy on wedding night, I'm happy!   Get in touch today so we can talk more about all of the details for your wedding day.
