Comfort is key: One of the most important parts about finding the right wedding shoe is comfort. If you plan to be in your shoes for eight hours or more, you will want to make sure your shoes are comfortable.

Practice, practice, practice: Walking in your shoes before the wedding. And make sure you scuff up the bottoms of your shoes to prevent slipping and sliding down the aisle and dance floor.
