Gorgeous dress Cara! I got mine hemmed for my heels, but then ended up barefoot pretty much the whole time. I figured it would drag a bit in the sand during the ceremony, but it had a train anyway, so what was a little more?

Happily married since 2008

        Hey Becks!!!
        Thank you!!! :)
        That's a good point actually. I might do that also. I really would love a cute pair of purple heels under the dress for photos, or some pretty/fun color, but for the beach and the reception I might want to be barefoot or wear flip flops most of the time. And it has a train so it's already dragging!! :)


        So you guys think it's ok for the beach even though it's got all that beading at the bottom?
        We might not even have a beach ceremony, we might have it in the gazebo, but if we choose the beach, then I need to make sure my dress is up for that!

              Sooooo gorgeous, Cara! CONGRATS -- it seems that the universe WANTS you to wear this dress, as it keep reappearing in your life again and again! I am a big believer in reading "signs" and I think all of these signs are shouting, "Buy me! Wear ME! I AM YOUR WEDDING DRESS!!!"

              I also think it's totally appropriate for the beach, too! I've seen lots of looks ranging from something short and flowy to full scale ballgowns on the beach, and they all look amazing to me! If you feel beautiful in it, it doesn't matter what anyone else thinks is "DW appropriate". I think you'll feel a sense of regret if you get something less elaborate because you feel like you should based on where you're getting married -- and you don't want to be standing there during your "I do" moment being distracted, wishing you'd gotten the dress of your dreams, right? You want to feel glamorous and completely in the moment when you pledge your everlasting love to the man that stands before you!

              And as far as the shoes goes, well, it's what you prefer. Since I've decided not to get married on the sand, I'm absolutely going with heels, but do what makes you feel the most comfortable and confident! I think the purple heels you want are an adorable idea!

                Lovely dress, congrats. Not sure if it found you or you found it.

                  Thanks everyone for your replies!! You're all so sweet! And I'm glad you like the dress too!!

                  And thank you so much islandbride317 - You are so right!!! I don't want to feel like I'm making myself wear something that's "beach appropriate" because I should, I want to wear what I love and feel glamorous!!! And this dress definitely makes me feel glamorous!!!! OH I just love it!
