    Beach Wedding Shoes: What to look out for ...

     

    Something that a lot of beach brides don't think about until they're way into their wedding planning is;

     

    “What kind of shoes am I going to wear to go with my beach wedding dress?”

     

    Yes, perhaps the biggest dilemma for a beach bride is having to decide what kind of shoes to wear.

    Beach weddings are all about freedom and informality.

     

     

     

     

    However, many brides are still reluctant to do away with a pair of stunning high heeled bridal shoes and go for a more casual and comfortable pair instead. Especially if one of their favorite “obsessions” is shoes!

     

    Before you even start looking for bridal shoes, make sure you know exactly what your wedding location is going to be like. Get familiar with the path that you're going to take for your grand entrance.

    Will you have to go through a garden before you get to your beach? Can you honestly say that you'll walk comfortably down the “aisle” in a pair of stilettos?

     

     

     

     

     

    Trust us, sand is sand and even if you cover it, chances are that you'll still go all wobbly with high heeled shoes. Do you want to look unsecure while you're walking down the aisle?  Plus it will look awful on video as well!

     

     

     

     

    There's a high risk on choosing high heeled bridal shoes even though you will be literally walking on sand. And, contrary to what you might think, your guests will NOT be all out to see what kind of shoes you're wearing. Your beach wedding dress (and hairstyle) will draw much more attention for sure. 

     

     

     

    Barefoot Sandals

    Go barefoot!

    If you are totally comfortable with going barefoot, then you can choose from a vast range of stunning bridal foot jewelry or barefoot sandals as they're also called. There's something so feminine, romantic and sexy at the same time about beach wedding foot jewelry.

     

     

     

     

     

    Beach Wedding Flip Flops

     

    You can get these specifically from bridal shoes suppliers or you can get a pair of regular flip flops and have fun decorating them yourself. You can decorate them with pearls, jewels, ribbons, etc. With a little bit of thought and creativity, a pair of bridal flip flops can be made to look amazing.

     

     

     

     

    Slip Ons

     

    Another popular option is to wear slip ons. These type of bridal shoes are ideal if your ceremony will be on the beach and afterwards you'll be having your reception indoors. Slip ons are comfortable, yet stylish and you won't have that feeling of “unaddressed” feet.

    Choose a pair of slip ons that go well with both your dress and your bridesmaids' dresses.

    This will give you all a co-ordinated and complete look.

     

     

     

    Beach Wedding Sandals

     

    A pair of strappy sandals can look stylish and gorgeous. They’re comfortable to wear and you can even have a low heel if you going for flat ones will make you feel awkward. 

     

     

     

     

    Remember that comfort is a huge factor on your beach wedding, so choose your bridal shoes wisely!

    Great post! This is definitely a tough one! Probably going with sandals for the ceremony and heels for later! :)

        I wore wedges for my beach wedding and I'm so happy with that choice. I felt very secure walking in the sand and I found a cute pair that I can reuse in the future and were comfortable for the entire party.

          Thanks I'm leaning towards TOMS wedges and allowing my party to pick any pair of TOMS.

            It is important you feel comfortable all the time!

            Congratulations in advance :D

              My problem is that my FI is 13" taller than me!  I'm afraid if I go barefoot/flip flops/slip ons that our height difference in pictures will be too drastic.

               

              Our ceremony is in a chapel and reception on a terrace- so maybe heels wouldn't be so bad since we won't be in the sand?  If not, wedges may be the perfect in-between!
