If you are planning a winter wedding, there is always the chance of snow and it’s best to be prepared, just in case. Yes, you have your lovely wedding shoes but you will probably be thankful to have a pair of warm boots, too!
I think that when it is snowy outside, a pair of boots somehow just looks more at one with the weather than dainty shoes! If you plan to wear boots at some point on your wedding day, there are three styles of boots that I think work really well for brides and they are ….
[I have provided links below for the boots featured in the collages.]
Lace-Up Boots have the look of ice skates and a feminine vibe to them. They are not overly “clunky” and I think they pair really well with a wedding gown in an outdoor scenario. If this is the style you want, you probably won’t have any trouble finding lots of choices, including styles with fur trim and pom poms.
Ugg Boots: A few years ago Ugg Australia introduced a line of bridal boots but they quit offering them not too long ago. Luckily, there are some stores that still have them (see links below). If you think you want Uggs from their bridal collection, my advice is to get them now. The supply is dwindling. Of course, the regular Ugg boots are plentiful and you can even design your own. The beige pair on the last row below was created using the “Ugg-By-You” feature. Since Uggs come in a variety of colors, it will be easy to coordinate with your bridesmaids, so that you are wearing the same basic style of boots.
Hunter Wellies: Hunter boots are most well-known as rain boots, but they work well in snow, also. They are a good choice if you want a boot that comes in lots of fun colors. I love their Porcelain Blue color. It has a bridal look to me and can be your “something blue”. Or you may want to wear boots that match the color of your bridesmaids’ dresses. You have lots of choices with Hunter boots.
Oh, in case you wonder why boots in this style are called “Wellies” … They have a long history, having been made popular in the 1800s by Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington and they became “the” boot for outdoor wear by British aristocracy.
