I have a question. I have open toed shoes that I am wearing with my wedding dress. My dress is tea length so the shoes will be seen. I was wondering whether or not I should wear pantyhose with the shoes? Some people say I should (specifically since the wedding is in March and it may be cool outside) while others say it would be tacky. What do most people do?
Thanks for your help!

Try them on with the shoes and see how it looks. Depending on how “open” the open toe is (small peep toe vs sandal) you may be able to get away with it.
Personally I do not like the look of pantyhose w/ open toed shoes. (actually I don’t like pantyhose period).

I personally wouldn’t, but I don’t think it will ruin your day if you do!

I don’t like pantyhose with open-toe shoes….period. I think it’s very 1990’s and I wouldn’t be caught dead wearing pantyhose with open toe shoes, regardless of what month it was or how cold it was. We just had our work Christmas party in Iowa and it was 10 degrees … still no pantyhose for me.
I don’t think it’s tacky (I hate that word, BTW) … I guess I just don’t really see anyone doing that much anymore. Now regular shoes, w/out open toes … then that’s okay.
My opinion. 🙂

Down with pantyhose!
How long are you going to be outside for? Just pictures and stuff? I think you may want to let your legs be cold 🙂 Besides then you don’t have to worry about the pantyhose bunching up around your waist or getting a run in it.

do you have a picture of the shoes so we can see how open/covered your feet will be?? they make some kinds of nylons that might work, but it depends on the shoe.

Sorry, but NO, NO, NO! 🙂
I did work with a gal that found pantyhouse with the toes cut out to specifically wear with open toe or peep toe shoes. But I still thought it looked weird and very dated.

I’m not a fan of open toe shoe and pantyhose.
Not tacky but it looks odd.
I think you could pull it off with a peep toe.

I also wore a shorter dress with open toed shoes in the winter, no pantyhose. I just don’t like the look. I did bring a pair of closed toed shoes and some tights in case I wanted them for the reception (it was outside) so I wouldn’t freeze just in case.

I was leaning towards not wearing them (my Mom was the main one insisting that I wear them) but you guys made it clear. No pantyhose for me with my open toed shoes!

This reminds me of when i was in my cousin’s wedding and she wanted us to wear pantyhose w/ open toed shoes and we were all complaining. Then up walks her other cousin and Bridesmaid or Best Man with footless pantyhose that stop at ther thigh and we were all so mad that we didn’t think of that and she got away with it!

@FutureMrs.M: Yay! I don’t wear panthose period. I think they’re actually pretty rare for women of my generation (currently 20s-30s). It’s almost always fine to go without and especially with shoes where the toes show.

Try these! http://www.amazon.com/Berkshire-Ultra-Sheer-without-Hosiery/dp/B00008IPE0 (I actually bought some from Macy’s). I bought them for my Mother-In-Law to wear for our wedding and she LOVED them! And this way you get the best of both worlds. 😉
