I assume that it is common that the wedding ceremony is done on the beach while the reception is done either on the deck or indoors. But what are you doing about shoes and what are you telling your guests regarding shoes?
I plan on wearing flat slips or sandals to walk on the sand but when we get back to the deck for the reception, I want to be able to change into nicer shoes (especially for the wedding dance, we are doing something special that I will need high heels for). I imagine that most ladies at our wedding will want to do the same. But I'm having a hard time picturing everyone on the deck swiping sand off of their feet to put on a different pair of shoes or to get the sand off of their feet.
Am I overthinking it or is there a better way to handle this? Even if they all wear sandals, they still have to get sand from the shoes! And men as well.... How do we make it minimally uncomfortable for them? Any ideas?

I know I am doing barefoot sandals I ordered from Etsy for the ceremony (on the beach)and then changing into a reception dress and heels for later.

I clicked on this thread bcus I'm concerned about how I'm going to alter my dress! I'll be barefoot on the beach, then in heels for the reception. So what length do I get my dress in? I think my plan is to first get the heels, then get the dress altered to that length first and see how saggy it may look without the heels. What are you girls doing?

I'm in the "I can't worry about them" group. When you're at a beach resort - there's a lot of sand around. It's unavoidable. people will figure out how to get the sand off of their feet.
I got my dress ordered with me barefoot - my heels are only about an inch high. If you get your dress ordered with a 2-3 inch heel, it's going to drag in flats/barefoot so you have to be careful.

I did my dress with no shoes on at all so it will actually be nice to have it a few inches off the ground for when I wear heels for our first dance which is gonna be a surprise tango.
Thanks ladies. I am paranoid about being inconsiderate towards guests (which I was already accused of for having a DW in the first place) so I'm extra conscious of the little details regarding my guests.

If you are getting married barefoot, but wearing heels later you will need to get your dress hemmed to the heels and let the dress drag in the sand.
I love being a Mrs.!
