I really don’t know about cowboy boots with that dress.  It might be overkill.  We are having a very rustic wedding, but the BMs are wearing off white Bandolino slingbacks.

It’s not my taste, but I would go by how your bridesmaids feel. If they are with you and think it’s funky, go for it. But if they aren’t too comfortable on the idea, I don’t think it would be too great to make them wear something that would be embarrassing to them. They will feel self conscious and probably not have a good time at the wedding.

HI! I think the idea of having the bridesmaids wear cowboy boots is adorable. Although, I think you have to be careful of what style dress you choose and the feel you are looking for your wedding to have.

The dress above might be too formal to wear with cowboy boots, but then again it may not. Best bet would be to talk it over with the girls you have asked to be bridesmaids and then take the boots with you on a bridesmaid dress hunt session.

Good luck!

PS these were some of my favs from online.

I like the idea of boots under a long wedding dress, or long bridesmaids dresses. But I think that in this particular case, your bridesmaids’ dress is very beautiful and dressy. I think cowboy boots wouldn’t look right. The dress is too classic to get that funky vibe.

I honestly don’t think it’s a bad idea, especially after seeing those cute pictures.  But, I would just say that maybe you wear the boots just so you stand out more…the bride’s the one who should be the most special that day, right?

I think it can be fun!  But becuase that dress is a little dressier than the ones pictured, I think I’d give them a country shawl or wrap to really pull it together as an outfit instead of out of place looking boots.

My girls (as well as myself) will most likely all be wearing boots.  It can look really cute, but I think that’s maybe not the case with your Bridesmaid or Best Man dress.  Seeing the whole outfit in person really makes a huge difference but I’m inclined to think that that dress and boots won’t go together well.

I am wearing boots under my dress. (So excited!!) I tried suggesting it to the girls as well, but they were NOT big fans. Whatever, I don’t care that much. Plus we’re having a cowboy rehearsal dinner so they can do that then.

Good luck!

LOVE LOVE the boots! I have picture #3 bookmarked in my, to die for weddings folder : ) Her wedding was amazing. I really like all those pictures with boots actually but one suggestion I would make is maybe casual up your Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses. All those in the picture fit a little more with the "formality" of the boots. Your light blue satin dress might be mismatchy with them. But I LOVE the boots look so hopefully you pull it all together and love it. Good luck!
