Experiment- Wear booties with a long skirt and crop top. For the pheras, change into flats. Go for medium heels or better wedges for the wedding day. High heels work for gowns. Break all the rules by sporting snickers from Asos or Nordstorm, under your dress and you are sure to turn heads while you dance around in comfort.
