Beach wedding shoes

Recommended Posts

Im torn.... we are most likely going to have a beach wedding, as in feet in the sand....should I buy sandals? flats?ballerina shoes? or go bare feethuh.gif and ware shoes for the reception? if so they cant be very high..since the dress would have to be altered to my height in order to be able to go bare foot on the beach.........

 

what have the past brides done? did u like? do u regret? what do you think is best?

 

thanks!

I am going to be barefoot for the ceremony and then I bought ballet flats from J.Crew in ivory. I think the flats will be more comfortable only because I find it annoying to walk in sand in flip flops. Good luck!

OMG...Islandprincess, I'm loving those sandals!! Great find!

 

You can still go barefoot and then find something with a very low or no heel so that your feet don't get too sore and your dress still remains at the same length.

Well, I think everyone envisions their wedding differently, so how do you envision yours? I was supoposed to have mine on the beach but got rained out. I ended up going barefoot anyways. I had flip flops that you can see in my planning thread, but I really only wore them for dinner and dancing. For me it was perfect and I wouldn't change a thing, but again, we're all different. I say go with your gut. Good luck!

I would definately make sure that you go with what makes you most comfortable b/c you'll only be walking on the sand for a few mins, you'll be at the reception the rest of the night. I personally LOVE heels b/c I'm short, so I'm getting my dress tailored to the reception shoes.

Just a thought....I am sure you have walked on the beach in shoes before....can be a real pain in the butt! Maybe think about wearing flip flops or sandles to the site and slipping them off right before? Then you can go barefoot and slip them on again afterwards.

I love heels and can't see myself in flip flops in my wedding dress. I will be going barefoot for the beach ceremony and then back to my heels for the reception. But everyone else says - it's what YOU feel comfortable in.

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
