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.

    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
