Those having a beach wedding....

Recommended Posts

I wore the barefoot sandals. I attached my programs to bamboo fans for my guests. But my ceremony was at 4 and it was pretty breezy on the beach at that time.

I am thinking cute sandals or flips flops, and then kick em off before I get down the isle for adding flair! My colors are teal and chocolate and I got matching fans at Asian Imports for super cheap and the colors are amazing! $.90 a piece! Hand Fans

 

I looked around a lot and these were the best deal and I love the colors!!! They are perfect!

I'm probably going to go barefoot, but I'm having my options covered!

 

I'm getting some super comfy custom Goddess Sandals that match the style of my dress, and I'm also attempting to make some barefoot sandals (ignore the wires sticking out everywhere, I haven't snipped them yet):

I decided against wedges because I didn't want to be taller than my FI, and I also find that they can be hard to walk with depending on how hard-packed the sand is (if I was super short, I'm sure I would've gone for them though!).

I was thinking of going barefoot too... i had never heard of barefoot sandals before this forum! What a great idea! I will definitely check that out - for those of you who had them, any advise or recommendations on who/where to buy from? i absolutely love the look!

I recommend hemming your dress with a heel that is no more than 2 - 2.5 inches and make sure it looks good before you wrap up loose ends there. That way if u wear something flat on the beach or barefoot, it will not reflect badly when you have to take photos that require walking in your other shoes for photos.

originally i thought i was going to do a flat flip-flop... but im short 5"4 and FI is about 6"0 so i opted out of the flipflops and went for a wedge.. i will let u know how it goes.. but im happy with my choice ad i know that the wedge isnt going to sink in the sand like a heel would... im thinking about doing a small candy favour as well as a simple fan for the guests.......

Has anyone else had issues with getting the resort to put chairs on the beach for you?

I am wearing a sandal with a small heal. i would have opted for barefoot, but I am too short to get away with it. I say go with how you feel comfortable. If you go with sandals, make sure they are not too high, you dont want to do a balancing act on the way to the alter (my worst nightmare..lol)

    • Paradisus is actually notorious for doing this and we have to fight with them all the time to get the rates lowered. Are you using a TA to assist you?
    • Moon palace cancun offers Sikh priest. Janina Mendoza in weddings was very nice and able to help me.. suggest to contact her.
    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
