Are you wondering what kind of wedding dresses you can wear cowboy boots with? Or maybe how to wear cowboy boots with a wedding dress? Can the bride choose boots with her wedding dress? Of course! And it looks pretty awesome if you ask us.
If you’re a rustic bride, chances are the scenery you’re already dreaming up is chock-full of country charm: a romantically lit barn, hay bales, running around in wildflowers and open fields, mason jars filled with twinkle lights, a cozy bonfire, and boisterous laughter from guests… so naturally, wearing cowboy boots with your wedding dress is going to be like second nature. And being a bride in cowboy boots will not only be super comfortable and look great in photos, but you’ll have an easier time walking in grass and dirt in boots vs. heels. To top it off, you’ll be sharing a true reflection of your individual style, and isn’t that the most important thing anyway? To wear what YOU love!
Before you saddle up, we do have a few tips on what kind of wedding dresses go with cowboy boots, and what styles are best for showing off your boots. For starters, western wedding dresses with cowboy boots are the best combination.

What are western wedding dresses? | Typically, a western dress has a hippie or boho flair to it, a long length or even a high-low hem; you’ll find a bit of lace, but nothing too over-the-top. Some people call them western wedding dresses, others refer to them as rustic wedding dresses; you may even find them as country wedding dresses.
Right now, boho dresses with cowgirl boots are another win; the free-spirited style is already so popular in long, romantic lengths and elegant embroidery that is fitting for even more laid-back casual weddings — on the farm, in a barn, on the beach, or in your own backyard.
The key here: choose a simple dress. That’s pretty much all there is to it!
Should you wear a short wedding dress with boots or long? | That’s completely up to you. We’re seeing more brides wearing short wedding dresses with boots, but that could simply be two reasons: 1) it is for a summer wedding with hot and humid weather, and 2) they really want to show off those cowboy boots!
For fall weddings and a more romantic style, brides choose to wear long dresses with cowboy boots. For photos, just lift the hem up a little to show off the boots. :)

You can wear a long wedding dress with cowboy boots, but the look changes slightly, depending on how much you want to show off the boots. If you’re OK with just a hint of boots, go long; if you want everyone and their cousin to see you rocking those boots, go short! You can’t lose. :)
The bottom line: if you’re looking for a wedding dress that goes with cowboy boots, err on the side of laid-back, casual, country wedding dresses with a high-low hem or shorter length.
Some examples include a wedding dress with high low hem, a casual country wedding dress, short wedding dress to really rock those boots, and western wedding dresses with long sleeves (a total win for fall weddings!)
