barefoot - will I trip on my dress?

Recommended Posts

I'm considering going barefoot during the beach ceremony. However, I wanted to get normal heels for the reception. They wouldn't be too tall, but maybe 2-3 inches. If I have my dress altered to work with those shoes, would I have a hard time walking in the sand barefoot? I don't want to trip. How should I do this? My mom thinks I shoud get very short heels or flip flops for the reception. That is always a possibility but I'm not sure if it is my first choice. What is everyone else doing? Of if there are any past brides reading this, what did you do??

 

My dress came in but am undecided on the shoes, so haven't made an appt for my first fitting.

I'm planning on wearing white flip flops. Last year when I was in the Dominican, the sand would get so hot I could barely walk on it! I haven't found a pair I like yet tho. Hehe. So I guess we'll see.

 

No matter what you choose, I'm sure you'll look stunning. :)

I went barefoot for my beach ceremony, I had my dress altered with no shoes on, and found some very low, almost no heal shoes to wear for before and after the wedding.

My dress was altered for my flip-flops and never once I tripped on it walking on sand or hard surface. I had a pair of 2 inch heels and only part of the front would show but I didn't end up changing shoes.

I was wondering about the hot sand too. Do you think it is really hot at 6pm? I just feel like it so awkward to walk in flip flops on sand. While I don't usually care, I will this time, since everyone will be looking at me...ha!

I looked at your photos and they are beautiful! Do you have a photo of your shoes? I was just curious what they looked like.

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
