Im curious does anyone else hate the oh so popular idea of wearing converse with wedding dress or bridesmaid dress. I attended a wedding recently and noticed that the bride and bridal party were all wearing converse, i do think its a cute idea but considering how dramatic and dressed up the bridesmaids were (long red and gold dresses) all i could stare at were their black converse during the ceremony. weird rant i know, but i just couldnt understand why you would pick such a gorgeous dress for your bridesmaids and then stick them in black clashing shoes.

I don’t particularly like it, but I also dislike the look of cowboy boots with formal dresses which is equally as popular where I live. Not my wedding though, so whatever floats their boat!

I think cowboy boots look even stupidier- it makes me stabby but I don’t make posts about it. Because it’s not my wedding.
I think it makes MORE sense when they bride wears converse- and not the whole bridal party- because you can usually see their feet more- but eh- whatever- to each their own.

I think the brides that go for converse or boots normally don’t wear dresses or get dolled up so they wear them as a way to feel comfortable or show their personality. I’ll be wearing colored heels, which was super hard for my mom to even come to terms with, but it was the only middle ground we could find between my hope of a comfy flat and her traditional opinion. And hey, that bride left a lasting memory for you in a time where we all seem to be wearing similar white dresses doing similar bridal things 🙂 What shoes will you be wearing?

It’s not converse but I had custom Nikes made to wear with my designer dress. My Fiance works at Nike and we have way too many Nikes so it totally fits us to have custom ones made for our wedding. I’m short as hell and my dress will cover my shoes the entire time, plus they’re more comfortable. I think if it fits the couple, it can look fine, if they’re just doing it to be pinteresty cute, then it makes it look dumber.

I wore Toms on my wedding day. They were my something blue. However, my dress was long enough that just the toe was peeking out, so they werent distracting.
I see nothing wrong with silly shoes.

I don’t like them either, but live and let live.

It was cute the first time, now it’s just overdone and tryhard. I’m all for comfy shoes for the reception but IMO keep it tasteful.

I wore Coverse for my wedding and I wouldn’t have done it any other way. No one besides my hubby and bridal party knew I had them on until the reception, and now I have awesome comfy custom shoes to wear whenever I want! I do agree that it looks strange with shorter or fancier dresses on bridesmaids!

We are all wearing Vans – a request Fiance made that I am very excited about. I like wearing heels and getting dressed up but when he buys a pair of vans, I do too. It’s just been a thing that THOSE are our shoes and I’m excited that they’ll be our wedding shoes too. Plus I’ll be comfy! When I was in high school I used to paint on my vans to make them unique so I’m considering adding something like this on the back
My bridesmaids are excited to wear their Vans too! And Fiance And his groomsmen will have to be wrestled into their dress pants and dress shirt – FI’s request was because he (and his brother and uncle who will be groomsmen) can’t stand dress shoes. The bridesmaids and FIs sister are all wearing short dresses though, and I’m wearing a ballgown so unless I’m walking no one will see my feet.

It doesn’t bother me when the bride does it because almost always the dress covers your feet anyway. I’m not a fan of them when they’re visible though, so I’d probably vote “no” for bridesmaids.

I think it depends. A Facebook friend just posted all her wedding pics and she and her wife did this and it was perfect for them. I didn’t notice what shoes the bridal party wore though, I think normal.
My friend wore a beautiful (possibly blush) gown with blue converse and her wife wore a white suit with a light pink shirt and light pink converse. Their wedding was at the Santa Monica Pier so I think converse fit the playful vibe really well.

It’s not my “thing” so I’ll probably be rocking Jimmy Choos and a white dress but I’m perfectly thrilled to concede that my Fiance can wear custom Converse since she’ll be wearing a wedding dress of her own. She’s not a girly-girl and is more comfy in jeans and Chucks but she also feels that weddings are a once-in-a-lifetime thing and she wouldn’t feel right if our photos didn’t have two dresses. Also, she thinks the father-daughter dance should have only one person in slacks 😉
That being said, I’m on the hunt for designer sneakers/flats that feel like “her” to match my designer heels as her bridal gift. If I can find something I like and makes sense, I’ll buy them for (at least) some of the wedding photos but will let her decide what she actually wears down the aisle.
