- Wedding: June 2010 - The Mountain Terrace, Woodside, CA
I voted no stockings….but you could always have a nude pair handy in case you get cold and want to put them on later. That’s the only reason I ever wear them, for the tiny bit of warmth they provide. But under your dress I doubt you’ll need them.

Definitely no stockings. They are usually uncomfortable and I wouldn’t wear them unless you liked the look or wanted the warmth they provide, as CaliValley82 said. No stockings.

Rock them without the stockings…but that’s just my opinion.
Personally, I’m going to have enough to deal with walking in high heels across the grassy lawn to add the “sliding” feeling that pairing stockings with sandals gives me…

I wear stockings all the time, but by choice, not by convention mandate. The rules are much freer now and you can choose. I think you’d be more comfortable without, it sounds like from your post,?

Down with stockings! Go bare… it’s sexier & not nearly as restricting! Its your day, do what feels right & comfortable!

I usually don’t wear stockings, but I think I am wearing control top panty hose for my wedding. My undergarment is an all-in-one, so no spanx, and I thought I needed something on my legs. Plus, I’m wearing ballet slippers (I think they are really bedroom slippers to tell the truth) they are satin with some lace and pearls on them-so I think barefoot will not feel too good anyway. If I were wearing your shoes-I’d say no stockings and get a really pretty color or french pedi with those sexy high heeled shoes!

stockings nah.. fishnets maybe… especially the really cute ones that they have out nowadays, but that’s really only for closed toed shoes….. so i voted no as well.

I wouldn’t wear stockings. I think you’ll be warm enough. I had color in my dress too. Although my wedding was in August, it was only 55 degrees that night. It was chilly, but I was sweating a lot under my dress.

You do not have to wear them, but I did just see an ad about spanx footless nude ones…

I believe stockings is a must for a wedding. Imagine seeing a man wearing a suit without a tie; it’s just not formal. For my wedding, I want everything to be perfect, elegant and beautiful. Therefore, I really believe that my white thigh high stockings will go well with my wedding dress. I picked up a pair of luxurious thigh highs from here: http://www.viennemilano.com
