Gay Bride Diaries
Shoes, shoes, shoes. Let’s talk about them. When is it okay to go barefoot, when is it okay to wear jelly shoes…wait, what? It’s never okay to wear jelly shoes unless to an 80’s party. So when is it okay to wear high heels, sneakers, sandals with socks? Brides have done it all. Tennis shoes are common for comfort, and of course us Tomboy and sporty lesbians out there who love comfort and low maintenance. Sneakers can add character to a formal gown. Barefoot makes it easier and looks carefree when walking on a sandy beach. Sandals can also be appropriate. Both wearing pants? Spice it up with some dressy or crazy shoes. You don’t want your wife cutting off the bottom of all the wedding photos because you wore your ugly shoes!
Random Wedding thought of the week:
I had a dream I needed to wear a cowboy hat and cowboy boots with my dress for a wedding in Texas.
Quote from my memoir, “Diary of a Gay, Pregnant Bride”:
She had a passion for obnoxious looking shoes that took people’s attention away from her shyness. Bright purple heels with lacy yellow sides topped her favorites.
Questions to Consider:
If you are having a courthouse wedding should you still be concerned about your shoes?
Did you know?
A Swedish bride puts a silver coin from her father in one shoe and a gold coin from her mother in the other shoe to ensure that she’ll never do without.
Dress to impress, even you stubborn lesbians! It’s one day, one special day. Maybe your fiancé likes to be the high maintenance femme dress up doll. But you can dress up a little too. We aren’t talking girly girl stuff. You don’t even have to dress like James Bond. Be yourself, of course, but adding some nice shoes to your outfit for the big day says, “I’m worth it and so is she.”
