Victorian Lace Wedding Boots
Victorian Leather and Lace Wedding Boots are a highly sought after wedding accessory for today's bride.
I have adored Victorian lace-up boots since my childhood.
I have written another hub about that fascination and the reasons why.
To me, this style of boot represents strength in a woman. I think they are incredibly sexy and accentuate a woman's femininity like no other shoe can.
What better time to display these qualities than at your own wedding?
A Victorian or Southern Wedding
I have attended a couple of beautiful southern weddings where the bride wore a Victorian-style white lace dress with the Victorian leather and lace boots like you see pictured here. Both brides topped their gowns with a beautiful western-style white hat.
I'm telling you, these white Victorian boots really made the outfit, but it's important that the dress is short enough, at least in the front, so that you see the boots.
At one of the weddings, the bride arrived at the wedding in a stretch limo. As the door of the limo opened, the first thing we saw were those gorgeous white Victorian lace-up boots. Then as she emerged you next got a glimpse of that Southern hat and veil. The full ensemble was breath-taking and caused a collective gasp amongst the guests.
Both brides radiated an attitude of strength, confidence, and a comfort in who they were as beautiful women. They made it known to the world that it was their day and as they glided down the aisle they were the envy of every woman in the room and the desire of every man.
You just can't ask for more than that.
