Giddyup, Pardner!

I’m the type of person who gets an idea in her head and then becomes obsessed with it. Today, I’m obsessed with the idea of bridesmaids in cowboy boots.

Because look how cute they are. For serious, y’all. I’m dying.











I want to do this now, so badly, but I probably won’t. Because a good pair of cowboy boots is freakin’ expensive, and I don’t want the girls to have to buy them in addition to a dress. And I’d buy them for the girls if I thought they’d wear them again, but I think only one might, and the other two would just bury them in their closets forever.

But now I’m on a mission to find some cute, comfy, and cheap cowboy boots for the girls. It’s worth a shot, after all.

Would you consider cowboy boots for the bridal party? Or do you think I’m crazy?

    EBAY. For real. If you’ve got time to look, it won’t be that bad.

    I love cowboy boots!!! I would love to have my girls wear them, but we are doing a winter wedding, so it will be Uggs for the ceremony. I will be wearing my cowboy boots for my father/daughter dance so we can get our country swing on!!

    comfy is certainly the hard part of finding cute cheap cowboy boots. if you get them new they are quite simply not going to be comfy at first. you’ve got to break them in.

    but, i’d echo some folks – look for them used! they’ll already be broken in, cheap, and they’ll be different (which i think is neat). of course, i don’t know how easy it’ll be to find used boots in the north there =)

    I bought some great cowboy boots at Target once, but that was years ago. Maybe they have some now.

    I have loved the idea of bridesmaids in cowboy boots ever since I saw a picture of it a few months ago. I am getting married in an old hacienda that has horse stables, and like you, I became a bit obsessed with the idea as well. In the end I decided it against it for a few reasons, the biggest one being that I want my bridesmaids to feel as pretty as possible and I know that some of them would just not be into wearing cowboy boots, even if I was able to afford buying them for them. As much as I love the look of it, I want my bridesmaids to feel that they look their best and I know some of them would not feel that way if they were forced to wear cowboy boots. As much as it’s “my day” they are a big part of it and I want them to feel beautiful too!

    Awesome inspiration pictures! I would totally do it. Doesn’t really fit us for our wedding, but if I were from Texas I’d be all about it!

    We all wore cowboy boots at my fathers wedding! They were so comfy! Of course most of the people in my family live in or around the country side as it is, so we are all used to the idea of a rustic wedding propsal.
