        Yamille,

        I'm going barefoot also. My dress does drag a bit due to the embroidery work on the bottom, we couldn't hem it any shorter. I decided to just deal with it and go barefoot anyway. Have you ever tried to walk in the sand in wedges? It's not exactly easy!!

          ok. now I am rethinking it all. Maybe I will buy the wedge flip flops to have just in case. Ok for my second fitting I will walk around barefoot and see what happens.

          I also can't believe that we are paying over $200 in alterations and it's not even being hemmed. wtf?

            Yamille, I totally agree with Carly. I had my reception shoes on for my alterations & wanted to go barefoot for the ceremony on the beach. I just let her do the alterations with the shoes anyway.
            While I wound up wearing fairly low wedge flip flops for the ceremony, I so wish I would've just gone barefoot. I felt so clumbsy walking in the sand with those wedge flip flops. And the wedge wasn't even that high.

            So if you really want to be barefoot, just go for it. Like you said, see how it is when you go for your next fitting. I just don't think it'll be a problem at all.
            Also, if you do opt for the wedge flip flops on the day of your wedding, make sure you practice walking in the sand with them at least the day before so you know what to expect!

            And please, don't remind me about the price of alterations! Its just crazy!

              I say go barefoot, so your dress drags a bit!

              By the end of my reception I was dancing in the ocean and my dress got super wet and sandy. Hey, it's your party go barefoot if you want too!
