Wediquette Wednesday: Is it acceptable for a bride to go barefoot at her wedding?

barefoot bride & groomWhile this etiquette Q&A article makes an issue out of the appropriateness of a bride going barefoot to her own wedding, it is never suggested the son should go barefoot, too. :-(

The intended mother-in-law is quite hostile about it, since the wedding will be held in her  backyard and home.  While she wants to make the bride wash her feet before entering the house, she does not intend to make her shoe-wearing son or their guests wash their shoes before coming in the house.  The etiquette author attempts to set her on the less hostile path, and two commenters are a little less subtle about it.
