Tag: rainy day wedding style

One thing’s for sure about weddings in the South: you cannot count on the weather! One minute it’s sunny and the next a full-on rain storm is brewing. For this week’s Southern Style post, we’re celebrating the perfect (and quite stylish) way to weather the storm — wellies! (Or, as Lilly Pulitzer dubbed them, swellies!) Originating with the Duke of Wellington, these once utilitarian rubber boots have now been updated and styled for the perfect (and oh-so-Southern) rainy day accessory.

Since I never leave y’all empty handed, we’ve rounded up our favorite and most stylish wellies for today’s Shopping Guide:

A. Lilly Pulitzer Swellies ($72.47), B. In the Company of Dogs British Wellies ($79.95), C. Tretorn “Skerry” Rain Boots ($49), D. Kate Spade “Randi” ($125), E. Joules “Posh” Wellies ($99), F. Hunter “Huntress” ($125), G. Dover Joules Welly in Toupe ($64.90).

We want to hear from you! Did it rain on your wedding day? (I’ve heard that’s good luck!) Would you wear wellies to keep from soaking your tootsies? Have a favorite pair? (Mine are houndstooth!)

    LOVE wellies! I have a pair of fire engine red Hunter wellies myself and they are amazing. If it does rain on my wedding day, I will be thrilled to have an opportunity to show off my puddle jumpers.
