We all know how "comfortable" high heels can be. No matter how wide the heel, how high the platform, how much extra insole grips we add, they're gonna hurt after standing in them for over 10 hours. The wear on your feet on your wedding day is no joke either-- you're walking down aisles, posing, jumping and dancing. That's why some smart brides have actually planned out back-up dancing shoes for their receptions instead of ending up barefoot on a dirty dancefloor! Every part of your wedding is a photo-op, so why not take advantage and have your bridal party in matching dancing footwear?
Check out these trendy alternatives to cheapy flip flops and whack fold-up flats:
TOMS: These shoes became a hit because of their "one for one" business model. For every pair you buy, a new pair of shoes is given to a child in need! Known for their comfort and everyday wearability, if you go with a pair of these for everyone in your bridal party, it'll surely be a shoe they continue to wear daily. Their popularity as a wedding day shot up so quickly this past year that they actually have a Toms Wedding line for both the Bride and the Groom!
CHUCKS: A classic shoe that seems to transcend fashion subgenres, the converse chuck taylors aren't just an awesome dancing shoe-- countless numbers of wedding parties have actually rocked these for the whole day. The great thing about Chucks are the abundance of colours and patterns that they're available in. If you don't see a style you like, you can design your own completely customized pair! The site even offers the option of embroidering a customized message on the shoe, so you can easily throw on some initials or your wedding date.
CROCS: You're laughing, I know. Crocs are synonymous with being the lowest of the low in fashion, but you're thinking of the clog shaped ones people wear in the garden! Crocs actually have a line of flats that have the comfort of crocs and are shaped like... normal flats! I own multiple pairs (don't judge me) and I swear by the comfort because they eventually shape to your foot.
So what do you think? Will you try to rock the heels to the bitter end, or are you gonna work in a fashionable and quirky backup plan?
