Reese Witherspoon's Wedding Shoes: From Jimmy Choo to Cowboy Boots!

As Reese Witherspoon walked down the aisle at her March 26 wedding, we know she sported some seriously pretty Jimmy Choo shoes. But when it came time to dance at the reception, the southern belle kicked off her heels — literally! “I changed into cowboy boots, from those awful, uncomfortable shoes,” she shares during an episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing today. Sounds like the change was necessary: Witherspoon and her guests danced for hours to the music of a DJ and a bluegrass and rockabilly band. “I’m a big country music fan,” Witherspoon reveals, adding that she and husband Jim Toth didn’t have just one song they danced to that night, but instead, “tons and tons of country music.” Witherspoon, who says the wedding was small and included just family and close friends, admits that she was nervous on her big day, too. “I don’t like having birthday parties,” she shares. “I mean, I like going to parties. I just don’t like it when it’s about me. Which is so bizarre but … once I’m there, I’m having the best time.” For more on Witherspoon’s big day, check out The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing today. —Kate Hogan

Who cares? Most brides change to more comfortable shoes during the reception — many wear stockings or go barefoot. And this is Reese’s SECOND MARRIAGE, so really, WHO CARES!?

Thats what I love about Reece Witherspoon. She is so down to earth and sticks to her roots. I think thats why she did so well in Walk The Line eith her character June Carter Cash.

Whoa Elle. Obviously YOU care, YOU clicked on the link to read the story. Love Reese. So happy for her! She’s beautiful and deserves to be happy!

Reese Witherspoon is a wonderful actress and a wonderful lady.. I like her very much because she has style, she knows what to wear and where to wear it, and she matches everything with her outfits. Anything she wears matches because she is beautiful and she takes care of herself very well. She always stays in shape… I like that about her. I love all the movies she has been in.. and I have most of them. Actually, I am planning to get all of her movies.. She is great in all of her movies and she is very nice. I think that Reese Witherspoon should be a role model for all women and girls. If she wears boots to feel comfortable then she will always have style. I wish her the very best and she deserves to have happiness and a good husband and I know that her husband is lucky to have her. Good luck Reese. We all love you.

I have a friend who didn’t take her high heels off until she went home (on her wedding day). Crazy! On my wedding, as soon as we were done with the ceremony and pictures, I took my shoes off and went barefoot for the rest of the night. Glad she decided to enjoy her wedding instead of trying to be picture perfect all the time, although I’m sure she looked stunning in her boots!

I was mortified when my daughter purchased matching flip flops for entire wedding party and herself. They all changed and danced the night away

As soon as I said “I DO”, both my daughter and myself tossed our heels in the floor! HAHA. So happy that Reese found her a good man. When you find the right one, it’s always more special regardless if it is your second marriage or your first. =) AMEN TO THAT!

Seriously Elle? You read the article so you must have been wondering why.
