Shoes!!

Recommended Posts

Hi BDW brides,

 

This might sound like a stupid question, but what kind of shoes are you supposed to wear to a beach wedding? I'm guessing the heals would just sink right in. So, any suggestions? For brides and bridesmaids..

 

Pictures would really be helpful, if possible.

I was going to wear flats and my MIL custom made me a gorgeous pair. However, at the last minute (literally about 30 mins. before I walked down the aisle) us gals decided to go barefoot. Personally, I think it was so cute to have everyones toes bare and it was exceptionally comfortable. It's the quintessential beach wedding that way too, you know what I mean? 

 

The shoes I didn't wear:

What cute shoes!! Barefoot, huh? I've read that on a few sites, but find it a bit odd to not wear shoes to my own wedding.. but hey, that's one cost that we could save on! Barefoot sandals look pretty cute, too..

My girls and I actually felt pretty unstable (even though we had flats) on the sand- so it just made sense for us. I'm actually more comfortable in bare feet anyway. It really felt great though- and many our our guests took our lead and kicked off their shoes too- many of which made specific comments to me that it was fabulous that they didn't have to wear their shoes! 

 

If I were to do it again, I'd go the foot jewelery (aka bare foot sandals) as I think it's such a cute way to dress up your feet for a beach wedding :) They are surprisingly expensive. I guess it's not worse than a pair of shoes though.

I'm definitely going barefoot for the ceremony...toes in the sand is part of the fun of beach wedding!  I've heard horror stories about heels on the beach, so if you feel like you want to wear shoes, i'd definitely recommend flats.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
