Attending wedding receptions are enjoyable for a myriad of reasons: getting to break bread with loved ones, emotional toasts and the sweat-inducing dancing. It is truly a beautiful thing. But if you’ve been on your feet for the better part of the day as a member of the bridal party, chances are by Soul Train line time you’ve long kicked off your 3-inch heels.

Don’t you hate how you never get to truly eat the way you want to on special occasions because of the excitement of the day? (This happens to me every Thanksgiving.)
