We love a good rustic outdoor wedding ceremony, but one of the possible risks for an outdoor ceremony is the potential mud factor. Heels and either grass or mud don’t go well together. So another great option is to wear a pair of cowboy boots (or cowgirl boots!).
Let’s face it: heels are not always the best option for a long day of walking down aisles, mingling with people, and dancing the night away. Wearing cowboy boots on your wedding day is a great option for both the comfort factor and the little bit of lift they provide. Also, look at all the fun and unique pictures you can capture sporting a pair of cowboy boots!
Cowboy Boot in Bride Attire
Traditional cowboy boots tend to be earthy tones such as brown, gray or black. A bride that is a little shy about the idea of wearing a boot may want to stick to traditional brown boots with less embellishment, which will look fab against a white dress. Modern designs renew drab neutral color boots with an array of colors from neon green to hot pink. Be careful not to step too far outside the box with your boot choice, as you don’t want to take away from the beauty of your natural bridal charm.
It’s all a matter of personal taste in which boot you choose – the right choice is the one that best reflects your own style, color, and comfort.

If a dark brown boot is too scary, wear a light taupe or white boot like the two brides below. We love that this first bride was actually able to find boots with heart cut outs!

Cowboy Boots in Bridesmaid Attire
If your style is all-out rustic and you want to ensure a cohesive theme, why not get your girls to wear a pair of cowboy boots too? Keep in mind that you are the bride and should be the center of attention. So if you wear a short gown you may want to opt for a taller boot with more embellishment and your ladies can wear an ankle length boot.

Cowboy Boots in the Decor
Perhaps you love rustic wedding charm and you are a country girl at heart that wants to include cowboy boots, but not in your attire. Use cowboy boots as a flower vase on a dessert table would be a great option that provides the best of both worlds.
