Brides in Boots: Winter Wedding Footwear

What does a winter bride wear on her feet?  For the thousands of wedding dress styles and hundreds of veil and headpiece choices, there are surprisingly few wedding shoe options out there.  And the options are even fewer for the bride and bridesmaids who will need to cross snow and ice from limo to venue, or even do some outdoor photography.  Here are some of our favorite choices for winter brides (and bridesmaids) in boots.

The most obvious option for a wedding gown is white boots.  However, because bridal gowns are made in so many different shades of white, there is a real risk of white boots not being a complementary shade for the gown. A more fashion-forward choice is the non-white boot – either in a bold shade for the stylish and modern bride, or a neutral beige or taupe for the more traditional bride.  Selecting non-white boots would also be appreciated by bridesmaids, as a bold red or taupe bootie is certainly easier to re-wear after the event.

In addition to ‘breaking in’ her wedding boots before the big day, it’s a good idea for the winter bride to add a traction sticker to its sole.  Sole Stopperz by Footpetals are a good choice to ensure that a bride doesn’t fall and have her blooper posted on YouTube!

Finally, for the bride whose outdoor terrain involves deep snow or slush, changing into an attractive rainboot may be the best solution while outdoors.  Again, cute rainboots can always be worn after the event, making them a good financial as well as practical choice.
