Say Yes to the… Boots?

A western motif for your big day can be a great way to express your style and heritage and is a great way to add more fun and festivity. Cowboy and cowgirl boots have come a long way in terms of fashion in recent years and are no longer the utilitarian footwear they once were. Bring some western flair to your wedding by matching your wedding dress with a pair of well-made cowgirl boots, and your groom can wear cowboy boots with a suit or tuxedo.

Finding Cowboy Boots to Wear with Your Wedding Dress

Cowboy boots have many variations in style and shape, so when it comes to finding the perfect cowboy boots to wear with a wedding dress, you’ll have many options. Traditionally, a bride would wear white shoes with her wedding dress. Why not wear white or light colored cowboy boots instead? Even if you wear a traditional white wedding dress, wearing cowboy boots of any color will help draw the eyes of the crowd onto you as you walk down the aisle. Plus, they’re so much more comfortable! Cowboy boots can also fit into the old tradition of “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue”. The ‘something blue’ could be a beautiful pair of cowboy boots! Considering a pair of wedding cowgirl boots is one way to make your day more fun, festive, and true to your style.

Finding the Right Cowboy Boots to Wear with Your Wedding Dress

Finding the right pair of cowboy boots to wear with your wedding dress is largely a matter of personal taste. If you’re the type of person that likes to follow tradition pretty closely, wearing a pair of white or silver cowboy booties is your best option. If you’re not afraid of bending the rules, gold cowboy boots are sure to turn heads. The general rule of thumb is to match your boots with either your dress or the ribbon on your bouquet. When it comes to pairing a wedding dress with cowboy boots, you’ll find that there are many options ranging from a more traditional appearance, to a bolder appearance.

Can You Wear Cowboy Boots to a Wedding?

If you’re a guest and unsure if you should wear cowboy boots to a western wedding, your best option is to ask the bride and groom if it’s appropriate. While cowboy boots are a great addition to a formal occasion, the bride and groom may want to be the only ones showing off their boots to stand out in the crowd on their wedding day.

Hosting a Western Wedding? Let Your Guests in on the Fun Too!

Should guests wear cowboy boots? It’s your big day, but it’ll be more enjoyable for everyone to get in on the fun with their own pair of cowboy boots. Bridesmaids can wear matching dresses and boots and stand alongside you at the altar, making it a true western inspired wedding. Or, if you want to stand out against your bridesmaids, have them wear cowgirl booties instead, and wear a cowboy boot with an embossed floral pattern that turns your wedding ensemble into a complete show-stopper.

When considering a wedding dress and cowboy boots for you and/or your guests at your wedding, you’ll find that a clean and polished pair of cowboy boots fits in with formal attire just as well and can add the fun flair that you’re looking for.
