the closer we get to our preferred date at the end of october without being able to book a venue (and with so many potential guests that have to travel long distances, and therefore need time to plan), the more it looks like we’re going to have a winter wedding. which means it’ll be cold. which means…do i want to wear tights? if i did, i’d get white ones with a lace pattern or something, i think. in fact, there are thigh-high hookups on the pretty waist-cincher i plan to wear, so maybe i’ll get solid white with lace tops.
is anyone else wearing tights? i already have my shoes, and they’re peep-toes…
do you think stockings/tights are ok with peep toes? i suppose that’s my biggest concern. i really like these shoes and they’re super comfy. i’d hate to be at square one again as far as shoes go.

Personally, I hate the look of tights with open-toed shoes. If you want to wear tights (which I think could be cute), I’d change your shoes. Actually, I’d probably change the shoes, anyway, if you’re doing a winter wedding. If they were big platform heels where your feet would be lifted off the ground, they might work – but since they’re flats, you might not want your toes exposed and sloshing around in the muck…? You also have plenty of time to find new (closed-toed) shoes if you decide to.

I hate open toe shoes with tights! One of my friends does that a lot and it drives me nuts.
If I were to do tights for my wedding, I’d do something fun with them- bright colors to match the wedding or something. White seems dated (80’s) to me. Tights to match your wedding colors could be fun as long as your dress isn’t super-thin. But yeah, get closed toed shoes.

tight with peep toes is a fashion NO. unless they are a specific color, like black tights and grey peep toes. If they are skin color, don’t do it!!
unless it’s cold and you need to…
but with a long dress i don’t think you need them

Your dress is going to be a LOT hotter than you’re expecting. Once you’re inside, you’ll be warm. Once you’re dancing, you’ll be sweating. I don’t think tights are necessary, and I really don’t thing tights look good with ppep toes!

I got married in Feb in Massachusetts, and I didn’t wear tights. You are going to be MUCH warmer than you think. At one point during the reception I was outside in my strapless gown trying to cool off!!

@zippylef: ok, THAT is seriously cool.
i want to do white (or off-white) because my dress is already in color, light blue. with bronze-y shoes too, i feel like if i keep going with color, it’ll be too much. i have to confess that i AM considering getting different shoes anyway, because as much as i love those shoes, i’m afraid the color won’t go very well. i’m thinking of going for a grey/pewter color instead, since i’m doing most of my accessories in navy and grey with touches of ivory.
Fiance has a special place in his heart for peep-toes though. (really, this guy has NOT been good for helping me control my shoe habit. lol)

@cardus: it depends on the tights. I would have to see a pic of them together

I don’t like thights…especially with peep-toe shoes. I don’t think they look good.

How about nude fishnets with closed toe shoes?

Get the tights that cover the leg & feet but have open toes. Googling “open toe tights” will bring a few sites up :). My old roomie had a pair & they were so very awesome!!
FYI I do not know how legit these sites are, but it looks like the kind my old roomie had…
