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?â€

 

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. Theyâ€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!

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.

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!

    • Unfortunately, pregnancy yoga training is a time of extreme. It's all part of the deal; even the stress is often a normal effect of the hormones that are raging through your system. But you have to keep stress at a controlled level because you have to think of your health and that of your baby. Here are some tips on how to keep stress at bay during pregnancy: 1. Evaluate your activities. Pregnancy is a time of many changes; your body is changing and your life is also about to change. You are transitioning to becoming a new mother. While you're at it, it's high time to change your activities as well. Evaluate your activities by checking your schedule. Perhaps you lived quite a busy life before. That can be pretty stressful and may even put your pregnancy at risk, so it would be best to slow things down a bit now that you're pregnant. Pregnancy has its way of affecting your mood and making you feel tired all the time, so there will be times when you just won't be productive. So instead of piling up on tasks, choose activities that you can drop or delegate to someone else. 2. Break the bad habits. Whether you really were trying to get pregnant or pregnancy crept up on you, somewhere along the way you will face the need to break your bad habits. What are these notorious bad habits you definitely have to say goodbye to during your pregnancy? · Smoking · Alcohol consumption · Too much coffee or any other beverage that contains caffeine One good way of breaking bad habits, even ones that you've had for years, is subliminal programming. Subliminal programming means re-training the mind; it works in two steps: · Removing negative embedded factors in the subconscious Since this method communicates directly with the subconscious, which is responsible for directing our actions and behaviors, it is more effective than consciously deciding to stop smoking or drinking. 3. Take up meditation. If you haven't tried it before, now is the best time to take up meditation. There are many tips and instructions online as well as many books on the subject. You can learn it on your own or join a meditation class. Meditation is the art of emptying the mind to relax both the mind and the body. It is also very effective in regulating emotions, which can be hard to control when you're pregnant. If you have plenty of time to spare, join a yoga class. 4. Block the horror stories. Every woman who's been pregnant loves telling her pregnancy stories to non-pregnant or newly pregnant women. It's their way of saying "welcome to the club." While good advice is particularly helpful, most women tend to share horror stories, or stories of how stressful and emotional pregnancy was for them. You may also use subliminal messages to train your mind to block these negative stories, so you can focus on the positive things about your pregnancy. There are many positive things, too, the biggest of which is the new life inside you, so you won't run out of good thoughts to nurture in your mind.   Safe and Easy Workouts to Do During Your Pregnancy The main rule of thumb when exercising while pregnant is to modify your workouts to suit the trimester you are in and to honor what is happening to your body. What is deemed appropriate for your first trimester is certainly not for your third trimester. However, there are several exercises that you can perform right through to the end. Let's examine the first trimester. You are just beginning your nine-month journey. You may be feeling a bit more tired, perhaps queazy, but you may not even be showing a baby bump yet. At this time, if you have already had a workout program in place, you can continue with what you've been doing.  Some doctors may not advise any lying down exercises at any time during your pregnancy, but speak with your physician to determine if this modification is necessary. Appropriate exercise for the first trimester: • your normal routine (within limits) • walking • swimming • low impact aerobics (keeping heart rate low) • strength training • yoga As you move into your second trimester, you may be feeling a surge of energy but your body is showing the pregnancy more and certain workouts may not feel as good. Around this time, lying down is not totally recommended and keeping heart rate low and core body temperature low is important. The importance of abdominal and pelvic floor strength should be highlighted throughout your pregnancy, so if you haven't already started, Kegal exercises should be implemented in all workouts you do. What is a Kegal? The pelvic floor muscles are like a hammock of muscles located at the base of your torso and under your pelvis. To do a Kegal, simply engage the muscles that you would use to urinate. Keeping these muscles strong may make for an easier birth and less pregnancy related incontinence. Appropriate exercise for the second trimester: • Kegal exercises • pelvic tilts (with head elevated with pillows) • walking • swimming • easy yoga • strength training (lighter weights) As you move into your third trimester, you are now getting to the top of your pregnancy weight which may change the way you stand, how long you can sit, and your sense of balance. Aches and pains from your changing body are probably felt more now. Workouts now become about making you comfortable and making sure you simply maintain what you have. A safe abdominal exercise, which also makes your back feel great, is an all-fours cat stretch and contraction. To do: on a rug or sticky mat, go down onto hands and knees. Keeping back straight, simply pull your abdominals in towards your spine without altering the straight position of your back.. Repeat 10 times. From there, round your back up, like an angry cat, feeling a stretch over your shoulders and spine, then release. Repeat 5 times. Prenatal yoga is great for elevating your mood, may help you sleep better, and decreases pregnancy aches and pains. Just make sure you speak with your doctor first and remember to never start a new program while pregnant. Keeping up with what you're doing is super and will make for an easier birth and a faster recovery.
