Wedding dress—check. Veil—check. Shoes—check. One more thing to add to your pre-wedding shopping list? Over-the-counter products to ensure that blisters, calluses, and sore feet don't make an appearance at your reception.

Although selecting a comfortable pair of shoes to begin with (think styles with arch support, a wider toe box, and not-too-high heels) is the surest way to avoid wedding day foot pain, OTC products can also make a big difference. Many A-listers swear by cooling foot sprays, for example. And Ettore Vulcano, MD, a foot and ankle surgeon at Mount Sinai West in New York City, tells us that gel inserts or gel toe sleeves are also a good investment. "[They] may help pad the toes, hence preventing some discomfort," he says.

Here, six affordable over-the-counter finds that will allow you to dance the night away, sans foot pain.
