Are you wearing shoes on the beach

Recommended Posts

My BMs and I are making our own barefoot sandals!! :)  My mom brought up the hot sand, but we're getting married at 4p, so I'm not too worried about the sand being hot.  If it is, I will just bury my feet in the sand! LOL

I love this mat idea!! I'm going to have to steal it too! :)

I'll be barefoot for the ceremony, flip flops for afterwards, and ballet slippers for my AHR.  Good luck, and happy planning!!!

 

I think everyone has their preference and it's always fun to complete the wedding dress-up with shoes, but I'm having a "shoes optional" affair. My fiance and I will be barefoot for the whole thing since both the ceremony and reception will take place on the sand. I did buy some heels for the pre-wedding photos but only for those pictures. I'm guessing most of my guests will toss aside their shoes and those who don't want to can at least be prepared and wear comfy shoes. :) Oh, and I'm not worried about the sand being too hot either since my wedding begin at 4 p.m. and sunset should be around 5:30; so most of the heat should be gone by then.

I've thought about laying beach mats down the aisle so I can wear heels.  I am getting married on the beach for the scenery not to be barefoot in the sand.  Plus I am really short and love wearing heels.  I like the idea though of wearing platform heels.  I have to make a decision soon though as I am having my dress altered next month.  Hmmmm decisions, decisions!

I hear you because as much as I love being barefoot I also love wearing heels; however, I'm just worried I'll trip in the sand using heels or walk down the aisle staring down at my feet! Ha ha. That would be a bad video and photograph. :D But I guess in the end it's whatever makes you happy at your wedding! Good luck with the decisions! :)

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
