Hi Bees! I have a slight dilemma with one of my bridesmaids. I have my heart set on my bridesmaids and myself wearing cowboy boots for my wedding. (I’m open to the girls just wearing them for a few pictures but I will definitely wear mine for the ceremony too.) The problem is, one of my bridesmaids has a form of athritis that will prevent her from wearing actual cowboy boots. She will be having foot surgery this fall and the wedding isn’t until next fall but her doctor has told her she most likely will not be able to wear them even after the surgery. We talked about it and she really wants to be able to at least get that picture for me but we just can’t figure out how we will be able to. We obviously won’t get a picture without her and it wouldn’t make much sense to spend the money on a pair of boots that she will only put her feet into once.
I’m not sure there is any way to get around the fact that I’m just going to have to give up those pictures but I can’t just let it go without asking the hive first. So any ideas or advice you ladies have would be awesome!

Is there any way to alter the inside of the boots with enough insoles? Could someone lend the boots for the shot, so nobody has to buy them?
It might be something that has to be let go. You can’t comprimise her health after all. =/

Not sure if this helps but I found it when I did a search for boots for people with arthritis

@Baimee: I’ve thought about asking some of FI’s friends to see if they have large enough boots to be able to pad the insides well enough. Like I said, I know I’ll probably have to give this photo up but though I would at least see what others had to say about it. 🙂
@vivshanks: Thank you! I’ve done similar searches but haven’t been able to find exactly what I’m looking for. I appreciate your help though! 🙂

What about an extra large pair? She could just pop them on at the moment of the photo and not walk around in them etc.

What if she wears one and then you just hide her other foot and/or have your photographer photoshop it into the pictures with both feet showing? If they’re all wearing the same boots it should be really easy for the photographer to copy it from another girl and paste it right on her foot.
