Rant or Rave: Boots and Wedding Dresses

Weddings are becoming more and more about showing your personal style—as traditional or offbeat as that may be. For some that carries through to the decor and the colors, others bring that idea into their clothing too. Cowboy boots and rain boots are always a popular footwear choice.  

Are you all about the funky style and twist on tradition that boots bring to the wedding dress? Or are you in favor of a stunning pair of heels to add to the glamour of the big day? Rant or Rave!
