Maybe I’ve been living in a super relaxed southern city too long but I say no to stockings in general  unless they’re  sexy for the man or woman (seams, fishnet). Nude isn’t cute and feels matronly; not to get too tmi, but not a turn on for the wedding night lol. Is your wedding outdoors?

I would most definitely go with flesh colored stockings.

I was wondering this as well for our legal ceremony in a few weeks. I have a short white dress. The way the weather is acting, it will probably still be freezing well into the summer lol. I think I will be wearing fishnet stockings with a pair of dressy ankle boots. The plan is to go downtown near the water and have my mom perform the ceremony then head to a nearby fancy restaurant for dinner with our parents. So because we will be outside for a bit, I’ll need some type of stockings.

@mrsfranklin79:  I wore thicker tights because my wedding day was cold! It is hard for me to find a good color match for my skin but in the end it didn’t matter because nobody could see it 🙂

@mrsfranklin79: A light tan color (I think?) 

Find something close to your skin tone and don’t worry if it isn’t perfect! You just need it to be similar enough to look normal if/when it peeks out from under your dress. If someone gets a quick glimpse and it looks similar enough then they probably won’t think anything of it. A colored stocking would probably draw more attention:)
