Barefoot Wedding


by Meg Keene, Editor-In-Chief

Barefoot Wedding | A Practical WeddingSince the pool of inspiration so often runs dry on Friday, I’m leaving you something that is inspiring me. This is one of my favoriet wedding pictures of all time, and it captures exactly the feeling I’d like our wedding to embody. Joyful, carefree, and a little bit wild at the edges.

So many people post about wedding shoes, but almost no one posts about getting married barefoot. Since barefoot is my preferred state, I’d love to get married just in my painted toenails. I probably won’t… especially since I might wear a short dress, but you can bet you’ll find me dancing barefoot by the end of the party!

Wishing you happy barefoot weekend travels! And for those of you getting married this weekend (it’s wedding season) we’re all wishing you the best. May your day be magically imperfect.

    I’d much rather get married barefoot as well but it’ll be october and the ground gets rather cold then.

    (Though I do remember not wanting to put on shoes so bad I’d run out to the mailbox barefoot with snow on the ground.)

    I am sure I’ll also be shoe-less long before the night is old.

    I’m happy I’m not the only one who thinks that it is romantic to get married barefoot. Once again, you’ve inspired a blog post that won’t get done because of a practical wedding I’m in.

    Anyway, here’s my personal favorite barefoot picture:

    I would have happily gotten married barefoot if the grounds of my grandmother’s house didn’t have sandspurs…little prickly things that latch onto your bare skin. Ouch!
