Always remember to break your heels out before you commit to an entire wedding day of walking in them! This goes for not only the bride, but any other woman as well! Make sure to test drive a new pair heels for a day by walking in them to ensure there are no blisters or friction and you're comfy.

Make sure to not tape it up too tight, which might interfere with the blood flow! Surgical tape can be used for this.
