    @SnowInApril:  No, no, no. I’m not very picky about details (HA yeah right), but I would not ever allow cowboy boots at my wedding, especially with a suit in a church. I’m sure they look great with the proper attire, but unfortunately suits are not proper attire with boots, and it would look, well, tacky. :/

    @SnowInApril:  Well i have to disagree with pp. If its not to formal I think it would be fine. Maybe its just where I am ppl do this a lot. Idk. And btw its sweet that he’ll do what ever you want 🙂

    @SnowInApril:  I say if it makes him happy, go ahead. Most of your guests will never notice, and I defy anyone to say that this groom isn’t hot in these ostrich leather boots.

    @SnowInApril:  As long as they are black dress cowboy boots I think it’d look great! Being a country girl myself, I’ve seen it at a lot of weddings and when done right, it looks great!

    @julies1949:  not hot. HAHA your defiance is futile. I don’t think that’s a real saying. Whatever, haha. This could be a personal opinion (I know it is), and I don’t mean to offend anyone — It’s really just my opinion, but I hate hate hate boots at weddings. My cousin said she’s going to wear them to hers and I don’t her I won’t go if she does (obviously I’m joking, but still).

    My husband wears cowboy boots with dress pants once in a while and it’s HOT! Plus, guys don’t get to plan that much about the wedding – I think you should let him do what he wants. (My guy insisted in being barefoot… at least it was an outdoors wedding…)

    Clean freshly polished black cowboy boots look better than some dress shoes!  For men easily.

    Personally I’ve worn them with fancy floor length dresses and had people say “Those are cute!  Shoe boots, where’d you get them, what brand are they?”.  They were always amazed when I pulled the dress up to show cowboy boots :).  I usually don’t bother telling them I picked them up in some tiny store in the mountains and they don’t have a brand name lol.

    And they’re cheap.  You can get a really good pair for around $70, and they’ll last you 20 years easy with just $30 to re-sole them every couple years (and that’s with daily wear!).

    ETA: and polish or cleaner (depending on leather type) but that only runs $5 and can last years.

    @SnowInApril:  I say yes. My pastor actually wears cowboy buits with his suits almost every Sunday, and it looks pretty good (and our church is fairly formal)! It’s kind of a fun quirky thing, and if he likes them, he should go for it!

    Maybe it’s the Texan in me, but that’s really common around here.

    More of the guys I have seen married wore boots than dress shoes. Dh wore these epic running shoes in our wedding colors with the date on em, BIL wore chucks, other bil didn’t wear shoes at all, so maybe I am biased. But I think it is his wedding too and be should get some say,  he is a grown man not a ken doll and the idea of “allowing” or not allowing the grown man you’re marrying to dress himself seems insane. H is a big boy,  let him wear what he wants. Plus a nice pair of boots frequently look way nicer than bland dress shoes.

    If he wears boots regularly, why not? It’s common in some areas of the country. If he doesn’t, it smacks of playing dress-up, which I hate, but to each his own.

    In defense of dress shoes, I guarantee most men have never even touched, let alone worn a nice pair of men’s dress shoes. It’s a world of difference.
