    I don’t know about boots with a formal gown (I’m thinking satin with beading and maybe pickups kind of thing), but I think coloured shoes are great!

    ETA: I went with a red sandal.

    I voted definately a do!!!

    I will be wearing blue shoes with my gown.

    I think pink boots would be cute; depending on what your gown looks like. On one of the wedding shows, a girl wore cowboy boots and it was adorable.

    I vote yes on colored shoes! I wore pink peep toes and they weren’t very visible at all, but I asked our photographer to take some shots with the shoes in them, and those are some of my favorite pictures.

    Colored shoes are so fun!  They’re definitely a ‘do’ in my book.  I had lime green shoes and love the pics of them poking out under the dress!

    I wore blue shoes, but they were formal shoes (satin with bling on them). I don’t know about wearing boots or less formal shoes with a formal gown, no matter what color they are–but it really depends on what the boots look like.

    If you love them, get them!  It’s your wedding, you get to be the kind of bride you want to be!

    I’m going to be wearing blue shoes and decorate them with sparkles with my seven year old niece.  It’s going to be fun and cute, although not at the height of fine fashion (I’m not a fashionista in my real life, why try to be someone I’m not in my bride life!).

    As a side note, my niece is really concerned that I’m going to wear blue shoes with a white dress.  I’ve managed to convince her that this will be ok after explaining the whole “something blue”.

    I love colored shoes under a wedding dress. I say go for it.

    Do you have a picture of the boots, I am sure everyone would love to see them.

    I voted a definite do!  I wore pink shoes under my formal gown, and I’m so glad I did. They made me feel special.

    If you think about it, color is a part of the wedding. We choose our wedding colors and incorporate them in so many ways, the flowers, the napkins, bows, etc. Why not in our shoes?
