      Yup! I made some for me, my bms, and the moms. They are all a bit different. They aren't for the ceremony (for me, anyway, the girls can wear whatever on their feet they like), but I thought they would be fun for pictures.

       



      I'm wearing barefoot jewelery for the ceremony (as we're getting married on the beach) and then I'm going to get a pair of heels for the reception.

      I'm making my own barefoot jewelery. Anyone else DIY their barefoot jewelery? I'd love to see what people have come up with.
       



       

       

       

      Also, I just heard that dressless me will be getting my shoes soon... They were on beyond the rack, in my colour,  and I could not resist.

        Nicely done!

        I've started working on mine and although I bought a heavier line I'm concerned about them breaking when I'm walking in the sand (as I'm going to be wearing them for the ceremony... exploding beads everywhere while I'm walking,... not a good look). Anyone have any experience with actually wearing barefoot sandals on a beach.

        Mine are these; the ones with white on them, of course! Simple, but I love them anyway.

                The brand of shoes is "touch ups"  and the model is "Nadia". You can find them in many bridal salons, or I got mine from Amazon. Or try

                I'm in love with your shoes. Where did you get them? What color (before dying)? And where did you get the dye?

                  I bought my beads at Michaels.

                  One thing that helped with the cost though is that they often have pre-made bracelets/necklaces for sale for a few bucks that had nice colours in them. So I bought a few of those and just used the beads. Otherwise they can actually end up being pretty expensive to make.

                  I'd love to see a photo of your's when they're finished!

                    The DIY jewlery looks good. i never thought of doing it myself but I might just try now. I really like that wedge. Did you get it from dresslessme?

                      Hah! No, the wedge was just on beyond the rack... I am calling myself dressless because I have not gone dress shopping yet. So I feel silly, for having the shoes first. Oh well.

                      FI is trying to talk me into a shorter dress, and he figured the best way to do that is to have me look at shoes, since I am fairly shoe obsessed. Well, I knew I would have to get a wedge, and this was in our colour.

                      They were a great deal. $29!!!

                      If you are on beyond the rack, check them out, they have similar sales on all the time.
                       

                      The DIY barefoot sandals were quite simple. I am only concerned about the size. Me and my MOH are sisters, with similar feet and ankles, but I just had to kind of guess on the others.

                      I just looked at a pic of one and started in on it! I am rather pleased with them though.

                       

                      As for beads and string, I am sorry I cannot help out whoever asked about that one. I already had all of these in my house. I have a lot of crafty things lying around, so I like getting to use them once in a while. So they were completely free! I hope they don't break in the sand, I had not thought of that. Well, I am not wearing them down the aisle anyway, but still...

                       

                      There are some craft stores where you can fill up a little pill-bottle size container with any beads. I used to do that, but it was not at a chain store, and it was a long time ago. Just look around and see what you find! Good luck!
