beach ready shoes...

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

 

So I just realized - I am planning on getting married in Jamaica next February, so I will need to buy my wedding shoes now, while they are out! I did a quick search online, but haven't come across anything that i like. I remember someone posted a pic of there sandals the other day, but I don't remember who. Any suggestions? I would like a flat or very close to flat sandal with some sort of jewels.

 

Thanks,

Carly

I've honestly found some good, decently priced ones at bridal salons! I might get mine that way - one that I went to had a HUGE selection - ones with sea shells, some sparkely, some with small/kitten heal, some flat, some with what looked like a satin look etc etc. Everywhere else I go, I find cheap, plasticy looking ones!

Yeah, I have to agree on that one - I've found the best selection for what I'm looking for at bridal salons too. And I was surprised that they weren't over-priced, they were reasonable to me. My bridesmaids have gone the same route.

I found ivory colored double strap flat sandals with molded insteps at famous footwear. they are so compfortable and they have a great rubber grip on the bottom for 20 bucks in the off season.I bought sparkles and pearls that I am going to put on the straps myself.

I'm really short and my fiance is really tall, so high heels are a must for me. I don't want to have to rule out walking down the aisle on the beach, but it seems everyone wears flip flops or bare feet.

 

Do you think 3 or 4 inch wedge sandals will work? without me falling down the aisle, that is smile120.gif

 

 

Do you think a runner will help at all? Have any of you worn heels or wedges on the beach?

I was wondering the same thing. The place we are getting married offers bamboo mats to walk on and I thought that might help, but I have heard a lot of brides have skipped the shoes because it was too awkward to walk in. So I guess it depends on what's more important to you: not appearing shorter during the ceremony or walking comfortably. I am interested in what previous beach brides will have to say on this. great question!

I went to a wedding on the sand as a guest and since my FI is 6'6" and I'm 5'3", I wore 3" wedges. I kinda wobbled a little b/c they weren't flip flops, but there is no way I'm going barefoot for my own wedding - else we won't be in the same photographs :).

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
