wedding dress long train in the sand?

Recommended Posts

I think it would look funny to bustle up the train for the ceremony, after all you bought the dress because you liked the whole dress. Everyone should see you in all your glory!!

I think the flip flops might be loud, you'll have to practice walking around with them on.

I was going to wear the dress bustled - I liked it that way. My bridesmaids wouldn't hear of it so I left it down until right after the ceremony.

 

I can't stress this enough - I highly recommend hemming at barefoot. I didn't - it was hard to walk. I kept stepping on my dress when I was walking with my dad (one hand had the flowers and the other had his arm so I couldn't move my dress out of the way) UGH!

 

Anyway - don't worry about it getting dirty. It will - no worries - you won't notice it until you get back to the room.

 

Here's my shoe trick: I wore these:

I wore them all the way down the cement path until we got to the sand then I kicked them off (I made sure they were really easy to kick off) and didn't put them back on until we were ready to eat and dance.

 

Side note - I had to do this because I am allergic to bees and the cement path that led to the beach was lined with flowers. Just introducing a bit of practicality that you might not normally consider, but there are bees around Cabo. I didn't see them on the beach, but they are around the pools (they like the sweet drinks) and flowers.

I'm with you, Jackie - just a couple more inches and I'd be happy! And I never realized how tall the guys were in MN, until I moved to Chicago. The guys there (and most everywhere it seems) are so short. To me, if a guy was below 6' he was short. I've had to change that outlook since moving from MN. My ex was 6'4" - and he had a brother and 2 younger sisters - the sisters were both 6' and the mom was the shortest at 5'10" - his dad was 6'8" or something!

I'm a gigantor too - 5'8. Brett is 5'9. I'm going barefoot for the ceremony and heels for the reception. I am such a shoe whore I can't imagine not having a great pair of heels for my wedding. I wear them every day so FI is used to me being taller than him.

I am going to have to make a trip over to MN! I find tall men very sexy.

Thats the only good thing about being short. I can wear 3'1/2" heels and I am still just meeting the average height for a women. I do love wearing heels. They just make you look so much more slender. Screw that, if I were as tall as you I would be walking around in those heels the whole wedding, feeling like a gorgeous model! I'd be calling myself Gisselle!
