I wore boots, but not practical ones. But have you considered white Ariats? There are some really beautiful white boots that might be less practical, but would look more bridal. They could be your “fancy” boots after the wedding.

@redoy:  As I said, they definitely were NOT practical! Six inch heels with a platform, as my Dh is 6’8″ and I am 5’3″. And I can definitely understand not wanting to spend big on something you won’t wear again, or at least not much. Realistically, your dress is full length, so no one would even really see your boots unless you showed them.

I don’t know… combine the fact that they could serve as wedding shoes/boots AND they would fit perfectly AND they would probably last next to forever and $600 doesn’t seem like so much. Especially if you have foot issues and are hard to fit. The break in period for your boots sounds excruciating, and then they wouldn’t look new for the wedding anymore anyway. And if you ride – which you clearly do! – those boots could be really practical for many years to come. 

There’s nothing worse than painful feet (except, maybe, tooth pain), and if custom boots could not only solve that issue, but also serve so many other purposes (they could be your wedding gift!), suddenly $600 doesn’t sound like all that much. I realize it’s on a larger scale of cost, but if you buy a pair of sandals for $20 that wears out or hurts your feet for a summer, it might be worth paying $60 (triple the cost) to get a leather pair you can wear for the next three or four summers and won’t kill your feet. Likewise with the boots. A regular pais is probably $200, so for a pair that is higher quality, made to fit and won’t hurt, it might be worth the cost.

I wore corral boots! They were super comfortable for me, and you really couldn’t see them unless it was intentional. This is the only photo where you can see the toe when I was walking. 100% glad with my decision, go for it girl!!
