Feeling the Pinch?
Ouch. Blisters. Definitely not welcome at Gorcott Hall on your wedding day.
Shoes, glorious shoes, so many choices……..from flats to boots and everything in between! So to try and help you avoid a shopping faux pas we thought it might be useful to help you think about some of things you might need to consider before making the final purchase of the perfect pair (or two!).
Bear in mind that Gorcott Hall was built in the 16th century, (long before the invention of the modern day spirit level) and most of the floors are original and now come with the odd crack and wobble that you need to look out for and avoid. Couple this with our beautiful cobbles outside and the inevitable trek across the paddock to the lake for some fabulous photos and suddenly really high stiletto heels may no longer be feeling like the best option. Remember we can’t guarantee the British weather at any time of year, and the paddock can go mighty squidgey after lots of rain!
Be honest with yourself about how high you can handle! Remember you’re likely to be strutting around in them all day, it’s important that you feel fabulous but equally as important to be comfortable (uh oh, am I sounding like my mum?). Don’t disregard the possibility of two pairs, if your budget allows! There’s nothing wrong with slipping the heels off and dancing the night away in a pair of cool trainers or converse, but you might want to mention this when getting the alterations done to your dress.
Whatever you choose we re sure you’ll look fantastic! Just remember to pop them on while you’re at home doing the ironing (or something) to wear them in a bit before the big day. And if that doesn’t work, well you can always rely on Team Gorcott to be at hand with a huge box of plasters…….but that needs to be the last resort!
Bickering!? Definitely not something that should be on your wedding planning checklist. But with the uncertainty that’s come...
