Heels!


I made it through a wedding in 3 inch heels! NO! I just measured--4 inch heels!!!I am actually surprised that I made it. I had to be at the church at 1:30 to take a bunch of pictures. The wedding didn't start until 4:30. So I had the shoes on and off a lot before the actual wedding. You know, take a picture, take the shoes off, put them back on, take another picture.... But at 4:30 it was game time. I walked down the aisle like I had been walking in giant heels all my life. Then I stood there, very painfully for around 30 minutes. It was a short, beautiful ceremony and the only "extra" thing they did was light a unity candle while a friend sang a short (and beautiful) song. Every time there was a prayer you could see all seven bridesmaids shifting, just trying to get some feeling back in their toes before we had to walk out. I waited patiently for my turn to be ushered out of the church and I almost didn't make it. The groomsman laughed all the way up the aisle because I was wobbling the whole way! My feet were numb, but still in pain if you know what I mean. The very second I got through the door the shoes came off and the blood came rushing back to my toes. It took about 15 minutes to feel them completely again, but I guess it was worth it:) My friend's wedding was beautiful and I think it turned out just the way she wanted. Now, I'm trying to figure out what to do with those shoes....should I burn them? I don't think that's harsh enough!

Hahahaaa! I did the same thing this summer! I literally threw them off as soon as we walked through the back of the church doors. I was the matron of honor so I know how you feel. My shoes were off for all of the pictures, except a couple which showed off the shoes. I'd keep them, though...

Or if you know you cannot use them again, sell them. Online..... That's just an idea.
