#MemberRequest: Brown wedding shoes - yes or no? We're having a DIY wedding at my friends farm, and I already own a pair of brown leather lace up ankle boots which are exactly the right height and extremely comfortable. My mother HATES the idea of brown bridal shoes and is insisting I wear white ones, but they'll just get trashed in the grass and frankly I don't want to spend money on something I'll only wear once. But at the same time I don't want to look stupid if everyone thinks brown leather boots are not appropriate.... PLEASE HELP - I don't know what to do!!
In my humble opinion brown ankle boots would be perfect. Plus, can you imagine how awful mucky white shoes would be on your photographs?
I love this idea and how great they will compliment your theme too :)
It’s YOUR wedding, I really like the idea of something different and that isn’t seen as the “norm” if you feel comfortable and want to wear them then wear them.
Nothing is considered normal in most weddings these days so have fun :)
Your wedding your shoes xx
And evey other time you wear those boots you will be reminded of your day. Stuff what your mum says xx
Boot boots comfy sound ace bit of uniqueness too your wedding photos. You dont have to follow traditions its your day you want to be comfy x
I've got heels for the service and white sparkling trainer's for the reception wear whatever you like xxx
I think they are fine. In keeping with the wedding! And comfy!
We organised a wedding in a field for a client. The wore t length dresses and had cowboy boots on. Looked quirky and awesome. They arrived in a tractor 🤠
Your wedding ! Your day ! Your way !
Ask yourself who is getting married here. I am not comfortable in heels and found some converse in my colour with glitter. These are my wedding shoes. My sister's would love to see me in 6in heels and won't stop whinging about it. Until I reminded them who is paying for this wedding. Harsh yes but unless someone is paying for your wedding their opinion is just that. Wear what YOU are comfortable in.x
Do you love your shoes ? Are they comfy for you ? Is it your wedding ?
Do what YOU want , I have coffee coloured shoes
It's your wedding, you wear what you want - sounds perfect for the style of wedding you're having. I'm wearing Doc Martens and no-one is changing that 😁
Brides shoes are rarely seen, go for comfort!
I’m completely the same I want to wear new dubarry boots they’re so much more practical and comfy as we are having a marquee at the farm I actually think it’ll make a good photo excuse and gives people something to talk about! But my mum is not so sure!
My friend had a wedding outdoors and she wore supper cute and super glittery silver brouges!
love the idea, I’m wearing flip flops or no footwear I’m getting married abroad and it’s what you want at the end of the day, and I know people who have got married in brown shoes and wellingtons, it’s your wedding no one else’s so where what you want x
Wear what you like and what you feel comfortable and confident in, as much as it lovely to have parents on board with decisions, your mum isn't the one wearing the shoes all day :) x
They can be your ‘something old’
Friends and family seem to think that it's their place to instruct you as to what to do. It's YOUR wedding. YOUR way. Even if money is coming from other people, they're not buying a stake in the day!
I'm not wearing white and I don't care what people think. My mum was not best pleased when I said I was buying my dress online either. Im really not fussed.
You have to remember the day for what it is, not what other people think it should be.
PS I'm looking at gold trainers for the party because I have arthritis and can't wear heels for very long. I don't care if people scoff, it's comfortable!
If that's what you want yo wear then go for it! I love showing different footwear when they peak out of the dress! x
I got married on a farm we had Tipi’s I had rose gold shoes so I could wear them again the mud just came straight off the heels they are like new x
I have gold wedding shoes!
Where whatever you feel comfortable in. Not like your having a traditional white church wedding..
Bride is wearing boots
This sounds great! Do what makes you happy, don't spend all your efforts trying to please everyone else , there will always be one person with an opinion. Xx
They would be fine ive seen pics of brides in wellies or cowboy boots
It's your wedding do what you want to do! Brown boots sound ideal for a farm wedding!
Wear what you like, it's YOUR wedding day!!!
Is your mum wearing them? No. Simple as that, enjoy your day in your brown wedding shoes
It's your wedding not your mother's so you wear what you want. If your dress is long then there is also a very big chance no one will actually see your shoes! I love the idea of brown lace up boots. I wore my wedding dress a second time as we had a separate party as my husband had a very large Italian family and I wore flat brown boots to that party as my feet were sore from being on them all day in heels a few days prior to that. I felt super comfy and you couldn't even see them until I lifted me dress up!
Wear boots and maybe get a bridesmaid or family member to keep hold of your shoes to change into for the photos? Then I’d put the boots back on.
Your wedding, your choice. My cousin had her wedding on a farm and the dress code was wellies....everyone looked fab and it was so practical...white shoes would have got wrecked!
I wore red converse under my dress
Wedding and practical
It's your wedding ....not hers.....lol ....you wear what is best for you hun x ....hope you have a great day
I had my new black Converse trainers on on my wedding day! The grounds wear bumpy and uneven where we got married and being pregnant I didn't wanna risk falling! Plus, I just wanted to be comfy! Drive my mum mad but she could tell how comfy and happy I was in them! Do what u want on ur day!!! Xx
Your wedding day. Your choice. If you know you will happy. Do it x
Exactly as the others say it's your wedding if you wanted to wear a hessian sack you could it's what ever makes you and your new spouse happy so forget anyone else. I think the boots will look quirky your personality showing through. Good luck x
It would make a great photo! Your brown ankle boots in grass and mud! go for it! xx
I spent a fortune on wedding shoes and only ended up wearing them for the Church I put my boots on to go outside for photos but was so comfortable they stayed on till the very end. It’s your day do what you want and what makes you comfortable. Xxx
Love the idea of the boots! Go for it xx
IMO no one generally sees your shoes if your wearing a long dress. I'm not planning on wearing glitzy heels
Wear comfy boots, the last thing you want taking your mind off of your lovely day is painful feet. I'd love a funky pair of irregular choice wedding shoes but I never wear uncomfortable shoes so I'll probably just wear trainers , they won't be seen under my gorgeous dress anyway
I'm wearing a pair of used gold sandals I've had for years, incredibly comfortable and no one is going to see them anyway. I'm the same what is the point in spending a ridiculous amount of money on shoes you'll only wear once xx
If your dress is long get custom made boot covers (like they have on ice skates)!
Boots all the way ,maybe bling them with sparkling whit laces :)
I have noticed so many people wearing different coloured wedding shoes. So why not brown?? You're mother doesn't have to wear them
I wore red doc martins under my dress! At the end of the day it's your wedding and your decision.
Sounds like an amazing idea, my shoes will be my something blue
I had red polka dot shoes x
Wear what you like....it’s your day! I’m having a black dress with black boots-my choice! Everyone is entitled to their opinion but for me, white is not my colour of choice and I’ve always dreamed of having a black dress-do what makes you and you alone happy, it’s one of the few times you should be able to be selfish!
It’s your wedding, your day. Wear what you want and what you are comfortable in. For my wedding, I am going to be wearing a set of Converse
I wore Purple sandals
Fitted in with our colour scheme, comfy and i've worn them since :-)
Even as Mam of the Groom when my son got married
YOUR WEDDING YOUR CHOICE, YOUR COMFORT. :-)
They are ur feet ur shoes n u and H2B day... do wat u like... however if u feel u are letting people down and want to compromise how bout blinging the boots u have.. u can get white boot paint. The kind you use to touch up ice skates.. add a bit of glitter maybe change the laces to match your theme... I think that would be quite cool...
I had nude louboutins so I could wear them again (I had always wanted some so that was the perfect time ) I didn’t see the point of pretty white lace shoes I would wear once either so do it
Wear the shoes you want to wear. It’s your day and you need to be happy and comfortable ... I doubt many people will even notice your shoes xxx
Wear whatever you like chick. There are so many things I did to keep people happy that I now regret. It’s YOUR day. Enjoy it the way you want to x
Your wedding. If the shoes are right then that's the end of the conversation xx
Youre wedding plus they are under youre dress!
Your mum had her wedding day, this is your day and your time, do what you want. I think it your shoes sound great with your theme and for practical readons, but my opinion doesn't count either. Who cares what "should" be done "should" doesn't really apply anymore these days. Do what makes you happy.
My sister wore dcs for her wedding
You have what ever you're comfortable in, I had purple for mine
If I were you, I put the groom, bridesmaids,flower girls and registrar in boots as well.
