If so, take a look at our style guide to the best dresses to wear with cowboy boots at your wedding. While cowboy boots are typically not a shoe that is worn at weddings, they can certainly be stylish and have an easygoing vibe when you wear them with appropriate attire.
You could go long in your wedding dress and still have the look shift slightly depending on how far you want the boots to reach. Cowboy boots work well with almost every kind of wedding dress, from a ballerina-length gown to a mermaid-style gown. Say “I do” to these dresses that look amazing with cowboy boots for your next guest appearance at your wedding.
You can always pick up a cool pair of cowboy boots and wear them with just about any dressy outfit you have in the closet. To make your bridal party dresses more Western, ask your girls to wear cowboy boots rather than heels, and add Western belts with buckles on the waist.
A high-low dress may showcase the boots in the front, but still maintain the longer length in the back. Dresses with a low-low hemline are also perfect to wear with boots because it is longer, yet people will be able to still see your boots. When pairing long dresses with boots, ones that have a slight split down the leg are the most fashion-forward, since this allows you to showcase at least one of the cowboy boots.
Mini dresses are always a popular option for weddings, but make sure that they are a form-fitting, rather than a floppy look. Flower dresses are also a popular wedding option, and are a perfect type of outfit to wear if you are going as a guest at a wedding. Pretty, casual dresses with some style, such as this floral fit-and-flare dress, and some I showed below, are perfect at rustic weddings.
Whether a barn wedding or outdoor country setting wedding, a rustic look can be the dress code. Whether you are getting married in a wide-open field or a rustic barn, you are going to want your wedding dress to fit with the free-spirited nature of the countryside setting. You will even find some country wedding dresses for sale if you are looking for ways to save on your wedding.
If your wedding reception is held indoors, whether in a barn, a country estate, or at a winery, and is more a rural-chic formal style, you may wish to choose a more semi-formal outfit, like a maxi dress, which can be made to feel casual or formal if needed–maxi dresses are those all-purpose outfits that can be transformed from daytime to evening, casual to formal, just by the right accessories.
No matter which colors you decide on for your wild west wedding, there are plenty of ways to keep your wedding gown and bridal party looking a little bit more Cowboy-chic.
