maybe you can wear something nice to the ceremony and dinner and a change of clothes for the mud; same for the shoes. 

if you don’t want to change, i say something from forever 21/ross/marshalls/target/thrift store, basically something nice but cheap b/c you’ll probably have to throw it away after.  not sure what you’d do about shoes if you don’t take an extra pair to change into unless you don’t mind the dress and galoshes look. =)

Hmm…if you’re racing in the mud you’ll need shoes that won’t get sucked off with a little traction.  I think the thrift store idea is a good one.  I also agree that changing clothes would be your best bet or perhaps just not partaking in the mud race.

I would personally opt out of the mud race– is that a possibility for you?

If not, I’d wear something nice to the ceremony, change into clothes/ shoes I don’t care for, and once the race is over, try to clean up and change back, or change into a third outfit (probably another outfit I don’t care for if I couldn’t clean up well enough).

Good luck! 🙂

Nice shirt, jeans, and whatever shoes – but bring something like gardening shoes to change into after the ceremony.  Anything more formal than a t-shirt sounds like the order of the day.

Inexpensive dress and flip flops.

I would just buy an inexpensive dress that you wouldn’t mind if it was ruined.

can you just take off your shoes for the mud racing portion of the evening? i’ve never done much running around in mud but it seems like shoes would only get stuck and slow you down. personally, i’d wear a forever 21 dress or something of the sort with nice flipflops or flats (and then ditch my shoes) and as others pointed out, it’s probably a good idea to have a change of clothes with you.

even though this wedding certainly strays from the norm, if you go into it with a positive attititude (and clothes that you don’t care about ruining), i bet it could end up being the most fun wedding you’ve ever been to!

You can totally find a nice, formal dress at forever21 or a store like H&M.  Their dresses are inexpensive so they’re often poorly made but that doesn’t matter because you’re gonna get it ruined.  I bought a dress at forever21 for $24 and wore it to a beach wedding, it was awesome!  As far as footwear goes, I’d just bring back up.  Wear something nice then throw them in the car when the race gets underway.  I remember trying to play flag football in the mud with flats on and they just got stuck and slowed me down.  I’m sure you’re not worried about winning/speed, but you don’t wanna fall face first in mud!
