Do you have to use the mats for the aisle?

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

In all pictures I have seen of weddings everyone walks down the aisle on those square mats. Has anyone gone down without the mats, just barefeet in the sand? It is what my sis really wants, but since I have not seen it I wondered if perhaps they don't allow you to walk down in the sand barefeet. Any input would help here!!! Thanks!

I think almost everyone uses mats because the sand gets pretty hot during the day. I'm sure if it was requested to not have them, most places would oblige.

I think she is right! And also they are there so you don't sink... hard to walk gracefully in a dress in the sand. But it can/has been done!

I think it really depends on whether or not you want to wear shoes. If you wear wedges or some sort of sandal it may work without the mats, but you would have to be dancing down the isle to avoid burnt feet.

I am just walking down the sand....no shoes barefeet....where do you get these mats? My hotel rents a wooden walkway but its not that long and it is 150 bucks.

I had my hotel lay palm fronds in the aisle like next to the chairs and left a strip of sand in the middle as my "aisle".  Hope that makes sense.  I guess it would depend on what time of day you got married also.  They didn't charge me anything.

I am also using them for my guest not to sink into the sand with the high heels. I would also think they are used like other girls said in this forum because the sand gets very hot.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
