What shoes/sandals did your wedding guests wear on the beach?

Recommended Posts

I think a lot of our guests are intent on dressing formally for our beach ceremony and I'm worried about their shoe/sandal situation if the guys wear dress shoes and the girls wear heels. I've promised a few people I'd send out a mass email soon with tips for the attire but I don't really know what to say. 

 

FI already decided he wants to wear dress shoes also and he figures he'll just take the sand out of his shoes once the ceremony was over. 

 

Just wondering for those who have had their weddings, what did most of your guests wear on their feet? Did they end up going barefoot for the ceremony or just kept them on? Was their any problems with sand getting in shoes?

 

Thanks.

We chose flip flops as the theme for our wedding. So the entire wedding party wore flip flops, and we invited our guests to do the same. I just checked my pictures; most of our guests wore sandals of some sort. A few of the men wore regular shoes.

 

In terms of attire, the women more or less dressed the same way they would for a normal wedding: dresses, skirts and nice tops. The men wore pants and a shirt, but no tie or jacket (except for the groom, who wore a suit). So the sandals/flip flops worked well with the dressiness of the attire.

 

We made sure to explain that the ceremony was going to take place on a sandy beach on our wedding website. After that and telling everyone to feel free to wear flip flops (in both the invitation and on the website), we left the foot attire decision up to our guests!

You could always also purchase flip flops on Old Navy's $1.00 flip flop sale and put a basket of them out just in case they want to switch what they are wearing!!

I don't know if you are sending out a pre travel brochure or anything, but we are, and we are going to include ideas of what to wear for our wedding.

I was actually talking to my mom about this today. I'm going to have to think about this one. I would love to put out a basket of flip flops but thats another thing to worry about packing:(

Some of my guests went on fancy and regular flips flops, others went on wedges, others went on flats, and they're we´re some that wore thick heels lol, but at the reception I gave out some flip flops to all my guests, I had them custom made with my husbands name and mine and our wedding date at partyflops.com   and they loved them.

    • I purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks
    • Karla Casillas is dishonest and a liar . DO NOT USE her . She will be the missing wedding planner on your wedding day . After being paid in full she did not show up and texted  that she is sick . We had to take over  to save the wedding of 150 guests at Grand Velas . Cabo  MISSING WEDDING PLANNER.

    • You might consider underground studio Puerto Vallarta. They are a young coupe doing an excellent Job at affordable rates.
    • Thanks for answering Patty! We are having the legal proceedings done in December so february is the celebration. We will have pictures first then a ceremony with a religious discourse and then have the reception.  I'm guessing we will be 50 people, give or take. Half of them are Canadian. They will need accommodations but if we have the wedding ag a resort I dont want them to be forced into staying there if they dont want to.
