FML - The follow-up

Today, my parents lectured me for wanting to wear sneakers to a wedding. The wedding is on a farm. FML

so_this_is_me Say more :
Just to clarify, the dress code was business casual but since it was on a farm, I was trying to choose comfortable, practical shoes that would not get totally ruined and that still looked nice which proved to be a bit of a challenge. After lots of shopping around and trying on many pairs of shoes, I found a pair of flats and I ended up wearing those. It did rain pretty heavily later so I ended up getting permission to change into shoes that I wouldn't mind getting muddy. This had absolutely nothing to do with entitlement, I was just trying to be practical :)

Somehow I doubt the wedding will be in the pig-pen. I can see why you might not want to wear stilettoes but unless it's been really wet then most other shoes are going to be fine.

I don't think it's entitlement here, I think it's more the OP is female and doesn't want to wear nice (or as I was thinking, open toe) shoes on a farm. I wasn't getting the sense that she wasn't taking it seriously, as I can totally see where she'd be coming from. Even as a guy I can sympathize, and in all honesty, while not ideal, guys dress shoes are way, way better traipsing through mud than women's.

Exactly! My cousin got married on our family farm and all the women just wore flats or dressy boots because they were comfortable and more sensible than wearing heels.

Mdoromis-I notice you didn't say they wore sneakers, which is what this post was about. Does nobody recognize that there are some options between your best dress shoes and sneakers?

Uh, yeah. I didn't mention sneakers because no one wore them to the wedding-- which is exactly the point. And I'm fairly certain the flats and boots I mentioned are somewhere between sneakers and someone's "best dress shoes."

You guys, I was just trying to encourage OP to dress nicely so I may have exaggerated the part about meeting significant others at weddings (which I heard via anecdotes). And the whole Cinderella thing was obviously a joke. Apparently I'm not a funny drunk...
