Are you looking for cowboy boots or bridal boots?

Do you like cowboy boots? If so, I’d suggest just finding a pair you like that fits well. I think they’re pretty neutral and work with almost any dress. And you can wear them after the wedding!

If you don’t like boots, find a pair of shoes you do like. You don’t have to match everyone else. And either way, if you have a long dress, it’ll hide the shoes.

I love the idea of boots with a wedding dress.  I live in my boots so it would be weird not to wear them with my dress.

With cowboy boots, especially good ones, I would focus on fit and boot style first and then look at the colors. With the money you put into a good pair, you want to make sure they fit well and you are comfertable walking or dancing in them. And are you wanting them just for the wedding? Or would you want to wear them afterwards? I wouldn’t just focus on how they’ll fit in the wedding if you want to wear them alot afterwards. What may work well for a wedding may not work well in everyday life.

Different types have different soles. Dance and some dress have a smooth sole that has no traction and are very easy to slip in. 

And they do come in different heel heights.  My Ariats that I live in are only about and inch tall. But they are also work-type boots and probably wouldn’t work for a wedding.

And I just asked my SO, and most men’s dress boots are either pretty flat or 1 1/2″ at most. So unless you wear flats, you’re probably still going to be taller than your hubby-to-be.

And to answer your question about color, if you like the way the tan or beige looks with your dress, go for it. I think the boots will stand out anyways no matter what color they are so I personally wouldn’t focus on matching or trying to blend they in.
