I can honestly say depending on the beach you are getting married on, you can wear high heels. I wore 3 1/2 heels, all my bridsmaids wore heels (one wedges) and none of us sunk into the sand. Please keep in mind the resort where I got married grooms the sand daily and it was quite hard packed. I am sure if I had applied all my weight onto my heels I may have sunk a little, but I really didn't have any issues!

I say get the shoes you love and enjoy!

    I think I'm just going to wear wedge heels in the sand... I did buy 4 inch hells, but they're more for picture purposes. It would be absolutely horrible if I just happened to slip and fall walking down the aisle!

      I'm getting married in my bare feet on the beach.  I'll wear a sandal too and from the beach, but I'll be wriggling my toes in the sand when I say "I do."

        I am worried about wearing sandals on the beach because sometimes when you walk it will flick sand up at your back, or in my case, at my dress!  So I was going to get married barefoot, but I would like to wear sandals/wedges to my reception.  So do I get my dress hemmed for the heels and let it drag when I walk down the aisle?  I'm not sure how to handle that...

          My plan is to be barefoot (maybe some feet jewels) on the beach, and then to wear heels for the first dance and reception. I used to work at a bridal salon and am wearing a ball gown so for the beach I will just put a tulle skirt underneath which will raise the skirt up enough to be barefoot and then when I take that out from under my dress the dress will fall long enough to wear heels and look right.

              I also am going to wear a low sandal...I was going to go barefoot but a read on here somewhere a couple of times, comments from ladies who set out to go barefoot but only lasted about 3 or 4 minutes cause the sand was too hot to stand in!  That may depend on your location and time of day though.

                I wore a low heel sandal with some sparkles on it.  The heel was rather wide so I didn't sink too much.  Looking back, I would have worn a pretty flip flop and changed before the reception since my shoes were full of sand and I had to go to the restroom to clean my feet off before our first dance :)

                  Hot sand!  I didn't even think about that. Thanks ladies.
