  2. Don’t Mix Prints
  3. No Heels for Tall Girls

  5. Ditch the Mom Jeans
  6. Designer Bags are the Only Way to Go
  7. Don’t Mix Metals

This is a picture of several mothers in our church (including my own!) surprising the bride and groom with a secretly prepared version of “Footloose”… in their boots and dresses. It was amazing, y’all.

11) I believe that the combination of boots and dresses is legitimate, under the right circumstances. However, I may be somewhat biased. I live way back on dirt roads in the Middle of Nowhere, TN, and have always lived within an hour and a half of Nashville. Boots are very normal, standard footwear. If it is a truly formal event, then I think the ladies should probably opt for pumps. But, even then, I think the gentlemen can wear well-shined black boots with their suits.

What do y’all think?
