Jeans at weddings

A friend of mine wants to have all the bridesmaids in jeans. And then she decided that she was going to wear jeans and a cute shirt instead of a dress. She saids she wants to be different and she wants her wedding to stand out. Personally I think that it is your wedding and you should do what ever makes u and ur groom happy. If that is how yall are comfortable and happy than Im happy. What do yall think it is a good idea??

no it is an outdoors wedding. I dont think it is a terrible idea. she isnt really a dress kinda girl. and he is always saying how breath taking she is in a pair of jeans. they both seem very happy wiht the idea but i dont want people talking behind her back either. do U really think it is that bad of an idea??

Yes. She could do a pants suit. But its her wedding. I would just feel odd being in jeans at a wedding

Why not just go to city hall or have a minister do it while they sit on the couch? Sorry, That probably sounds mean but I wouldn't even go as a guest to a wedding in jeans, and ys it's her day but keep it classy lol

Oh I think everyone have another idea of her wedding, but I really would felt bad if people would wear jeans on our wedding, especially me (bride) etc.

I think she sounds very non-traditional and that her idea is something *she* is happy with, and that's what really matters. No, it's not what we normally think of when we think of wedding attire, but there are lots of molds that are being broken these days. Just a few years ago, brides never had more than one dress, colored bridal gowns were major taboo, and bridesmaids dresses always matched, just to give a few examples. If this bride truly wants a simple, casual outdoor wedding in jeans, who are we to say she shouldn't do it? I think if it's what she really wants, she should go for it!

I think it would be great! I would be much happier in jeans at my wedding, but we're already doing such a low-key day that I felt bad that my parents wouldn't get to see me in a dress!

Good for your friend for doing what she wants even though it's so different (I'm very jealous!! Lol)

If she doesn't want to wear a dress, or have dresses for her BM's and shes happy about that, then good for her! :) I love weddings! I would go to any wedding, it doesn't matter if its jeans, dressy, formal, classy, costumes, etc...if i'm invited and can make it, im there! The attire is not what matters, it matters about the marriage of the couple becoming one :)


More power to them for saving money aswell! ;)

I am all for it! Whatever she wants! I would much rather see a wedding reflect the couple, than reflect tradition for the sake of tradition. 


And also, how much would it suck to be a bride with your heart set on jeans and have people freak out about it? I believe that it is important to support someone spending their special day however they see fit!! At my wedding we made people drink lemonade and iced tea in mason jars, and had a barbecue in the back yard for a reception! Not your traditional formal wedding, but it was what made sense for us! We're not traditional formal people, why should we have a wedding (to celebrate us) that was any different??


=]


to each their own!!

I also think that if this is what the bride wants, she should do it! Everyone has their own style and taste. I am sure there are plenty of brides that would be all for this idea and instead change their mind because of what they, or those around them, view as "correct". Kudos to your friend for being able to have the wedding of her dreams, be it in a white dress or blue jeans!

I personally wouldn't do it but I think if that's what she want and will make her happy she should do it. It's her wedding and she should do what will make her happy. I know how comfy my favorite pair of jeans are so I understand how she feels!

When, we went dress shopping she would cry in every single dress cause she said she didnt feel like herself. She said she felt like she was lieing to herself. I felt so bad for her. But, I seen her outfit that she has put together and i actually can say it looks like her. I actually started to cry. She has on her cowboy boots and a nice pair of jeans and a very cute flowy white spaghetti strap shirt. And she had the biggest smile on her face. Who are we to tell her this is wrong? She is not the cookie cutter type of girl and luvs to stand out and I say rock on!! I went to several weddings: one was a very traditional one, one was a surprise wedding at a cookout, and one was a costume wedding (fairy theme). And the thing with all of them is they were all very different but all the couples were happy. She is so worried about what people may say or think but you know people will talk no matter what. I am kinda happy that I get to wear just a pair of jeans and boots too...cause that dress was horrible lol I am actually happy that she is standing up and saying "This is what we want and this is how it is gonna be!" The whole wedding party is wearing jeans and boots... everyone from the ringbearer to the groom. I mean we cant judge each other of it...we can say it isnt for me but we have to respect it. If you wanna be a cookie cutter (aka boring) wedding then fine but she decided that she is gonna be comfortable and secure at her own wedding so she is wearing jeans. I guess i am saying that I am going Yee Haww on the jeans and cowboy boots at the wedding

Only a bride with a strong sense of self and security should do as she pleases regardless of the inevitable judgment that will take place.

I think that is why alot of brides take the traditional route cause they dont want people to think they are crazy or deal with the drama that comes with it thinking outside the box. I agree that she has to be strong and secure to do this. But, I am gonna be one of those people to support her and not bring drama. Cause aslong as the bride is happy then everyone should be evn happier :) and you must remember the age old rule: if you cant say anything nice than keep it to urself.

Personally, I don't like the idea of jeans at a wedding, but if that's what makes her and her FI happy, then everyone else should be happy for them.

I dont think there is a "RIGHT" or "WRONG " way to do your own wedding. Would I do it no. that doesnt meen its not a good idea. I would maybe point out to her that this is the one day that she is going to be able to wear a big pritty dress and get pampered. But if that is how she sees her self getting married then jeans it is. Yes people will talk behind her back but honestly there will be people doing that at every wedding. There will always be critics and people that think if it wasnt their idea then its a bad idea.


I am doing everything I can to make my wedding reflect me and my style. Why shouldnt she?

I'm also all for it. If she loves the idea and he thinks she's hot in them, WEAR THE JEANS!Honestly, if anyone has a huge problem with it, they should just stay home. That's my opinion.
