I’ve decided that I want cowboy boots to wear while dancing, might where during ceremony too depending on how the boots look and fit. I have an oyster colored wedding dress (like champagne colored).
I tried to send an email to my bridesmaids to see what they thought, but WHOOH! some of their responses showed they didn’t really get what I was looking for, well I’m not a fasionista and I have a very unique style of dressing. Well, I’m in the military and one of my friends thought I’d like camoflaguoed boots (heck no!). Well my sister who was in on the topic after I mentioned that, thought I would’ve too, she also recommended white boots (makes my dress look dirty). She didn’t think brown boots would go (which is what I’m leaning toward). She also thought that any color would look bad.
So, I’m coming to all you Bees out there to see what your thoughts are. I’d like a heel. Boots are comfortable so that won’t bother me. I start altering in January, so I’d like to have a boot picked out by then. Here are a few I’m looking at.
There were more I found two months ago, but I have to find the piece of paper. And the photo is my dress….

Oooh I love the 1st pair with the blue! YOu have to remember that people that aren’t actively planning a wedding and reading blogs everyday prolly are picturing weddings in a more traditional sense.
Since I began reading WB I have really opened my mind up to a much less traditional view of what a wedding “has to be”.
Who was the blogger that wore the awesome red boots?
I hope it works out for you!!

I like that with the first or second pair, your something blue would be built in! Mrs. Cherry Pie and Pineapple both wore brown cowboy boots, if you would like more inspiration.

I also like the first pair with the blue (plus it’s an instant something blue taken care of). The last time we were boot shopping for the boy I saw a really pretty pair of light blue ones that could be fun as well.
I agree with derbybride in that most people only think of traditional shoes with wedding dresses. I know my desire to wear blue shoes was met with some raised eyebrows and a few stern warnings from my family & bridesmaids….however the day of our wedding I can’t count the number of compliments they gave me on them. One even apologized for thinking I was crazy. Bottom line…it’s your feet….wear what you feel most comfortable and beautiful in! 🙂

I like any of the first three. I think a brown would work, more of a caramel-y brown, if you know what I mean. I’d go with some softer, vintage-y boots, personally, because I think they’re pretty stylish, and you could keep wearing them after the wedding. Don’t listen to haters! Boots under your dress is totally cool!

A little more info:
Our wedding colors are green, brown, cream…(no whites or blacks). The groom will be wearing a chocolate brown, the groom a cream, the bridesmaids various shades of green (not hunter green or any limes).
I have wider feet, and prefer curved toes rather than pointy shoes. I went searching for my other lists of boots I like but somehow misplaced it all.

I got these boots from steve madden and they are really comfy! They are also really cute and I get tons of compliments when I wear them. Good luck with your search!

I have a pair of Ariats, and they are brown on the foot part, but have a cute design on the upper part. Plus they are SSSOOO comfy!!! I would suggest that! 🙂

I freaking love cowboy boots. But I URGE you to break them in first! Try rubbing warm vegetable/canola oil on the inside and then wearing them. It sounds gross – but it works!
I seriously love the first and second pair. Are there any Outback stores close to you? I got mine on the cheap and they’re amazing … They were on sale – so that’s always a good option to look into, as well!

Given your colors & that I like brown cowboy boots with wedding dresses & I like brown cowboy boots in general I would go with brown. There are so many pics on the internet of brown cowboy boot brides you can look at them to see which shade of brown you like with a champagne dress.
