My wedding is relatively casual and rustic and we’re having it at a cabin in the woods in the middle of cold, snowy February in Quebec.
My bridesmaids have already bought their dresses:
And I plan on buying them these shawls in ivory:
And they will be holding bouquets of red, light yellow and blue paper flowers:
I asked them about tights and they all agreed that they did not want to wear them. However, a bunch of them thought it would be really cute and fit in with the rustic & winter theme if they wore Uggs (or rip off versions). Sort of like the winter equivelent of cowboy boots or rain boots. Most of them already own a pair and they love this idea.
I think it would be fun and casual, but is it kind of (dare I say it) tacky? I think it would be cute for pictures outside in the snow… but for the ceremony? I think I might have to see it altogether…

Don’t do it. I personally(prob from dealing with kids) think Uggs are sloppy looking. Seen too many Ugg boots/Crocs/Ugg slip-on things with pajama pants and sweats. Ick. Hate to be harsh.
There are SO many cuter boots out there that are affordable, that can be utilized. Unless they are walking through the snow i.e. its outdoors though boots are unnecessary.

@baletrina: Parts of my wedding is outside. There isn’t going to be any walking through knee deep snow, but there certainly will be snow on the ground in February, so open-toed shoes, or very high heels would be silly.
What kind of boots would you recommend? I’m having trouble finding ones that look nice and are not expensive (I don’t want to make my BMs pay more than $30 for footwear).

I think for pictures outside it would be ok cause its snow and cold but I would probably have them change for the reception. Inside pics and dancing with uggs just don’t sound bridal!

I definitely think you need to see how they all look together before you make the final decision. I’m having some trouble picturing it myself but I think the dark brown Uggs might look better than the tan. It could end up looking very cute while outdoors.

What about some cute ankle height leather boots? I’m not a fan of uggs with dresses after seeing it SO much at school in the past.

@Miss Sunset: I thought about dancing and I’m pretty sure they’d end up taking them off… I can’t imagine dancing in wool-lined boots would be comfortable lol!
Also, not to mention that Uggs were designed to keep surfers’ feet warm on the beach, not to walk around in slush and snow…. but I digress.

Maybe something like these? They’re faux fur lined so they would be warm.

honestly, i love uggs and i think that’s a bad idea.
i think tights with heels would be better, or maybe even a close-toed heeled bootie sort of thing?
What about a fancy boot? Something leather?
I hate to sound too harsh, but I agree with you on the tacky thing.

I love Uggs, but not for a wedding. THe dress and shall seem elegant so I think the Uggs would clash with it.

I seriously don’t care for Uggs. If the girls are cool with it and YOU are happy with it, then go for it.
I absolutely would NOT want them for the ceremony but could see how they might look cute outside. Maybe. haha I definitely think knee socks with rain boots would be a cuter option, but obviously I just don’t like Uggs. If you couldn’t tell. 😉

I find them ugly and uncomfortable myself. That said, since they want to do it, I’d probably just let them, but I’m easy going like that. Maybe bring up a change of shoes for dancing and see what they think.

I hate, hate, hate Uggs. I don’t understand why anyone wants to look like the cut off a Yeti’s foot and stuck it on their leg. But hey, to each their own.
They are the most informal of ‘boots’ and to me are more like slippers. If they do go that route, I think they need to be wearing a new pair of Uggs, not old slouchy, salt stained ones.
I do think there are other options though.

I think you need to see it all together. dong get me wrong I love my uggs but I just dont feel like they have any place at a wedding no matter how cold it is. Like you said maybe for pics outside it would be cute, but not for the ceremony.
