Breaking the glass....Should he wear shoes?
Posted 19 October 2008 - 11:34 AM
So my FI and I have planned to do the ceremony barefoot. We are bringing some flip flops with us for the reception . But now we some some potential problems.
As in Jewish Tradition, FI will be breaking the glass at the end of the ceremony, but we are worried bc he will not be wearing shoes....can't swap out halfway through the ceremony....any suggestions?
My FI was thinking of just wearing some regular shoes....but that would defeat the purpose of having the ceremony on the beach....
Also, we had a dance lesson yesterday and I had my shoes off during the whole thing....It was kind of awkard to dance barefoot and I don't think the flip flops will be any easier....
Should we just suck it up and wear regular shoes?

FI decided to just buy a suit yesterday and new shoes....at first I thought, "there goes another $200"!
But if it were me and I decided to change my dress, I knew he would be supportive so I just didn't say anything and I let him get his suit. He is much happier!

You should take advantage of being married in the sand by walking barefoot in your processional, but just have the flipflops waiting for you when you get there!

As for dancing...I'm going to run into the same problem...I really wanted to be barefoot, but also know that it's awkward to dance barefoot...I've danced barefoot at weddings before (cuz my feet hurt from the shoes) and for some reason I danced like I was still wearing heels and my friends made fun of me...I couldn't help it! So I don't really know what to advise here...
