Today's tip: How to keep your feet from aching on wedding day. Everyone knows that you should buy your shoes (especially heels) well in advance of the big day and wear them around your house to break them in. Well, here's a great little inexpensive item to assist with that process courtesy of advice given to me by my alterations guru, Janet.
Go to any drugstore or grocery store and find the first aid / band-aid aisle. You will see a little item that looks like a mini deodorant made by Johnson & Johnson called FRICTION BLOCK. It looks like this:
All you do is roll this on your feet around where any edges, straps, etc from your shoes will touch your skin. It helps your feet from getting blisters, red marks, etc. It runs about $5-$10 and would be a great little gift to throw in with your bridesmaids gifts or emergency kits on the wedding day.
Another favorite to ease your barking dogs is the web site Foot Petals. This site has just about every type of insert, cushion and heel slip pad you can think of to help with whatever little problems your sexy little beauties are causing you. I personally am looking into the Tip Toes which keep your feet from sliding forward or your toes from scrunching up through peep toes when you wear taller heels.
They even have cusions with lavendar and aromatherapy scents and cool little videos to show you how to use the products and what each product helps you with.
With these helpful little products, you can take the time to invest in yourself and make sure that the 8 to 12 hours you spend on your feet taking photos, walking down that aisle and dancing the night away does not get ruined by achy feet.
