Is anyone thinking of giving their guests flip flops? And if so how did you know their size? Ask beforehand? I always thought this idea was cute and thoughyf for a beach wedding

This is a great topic that's been on my mind! Our beach wedding is at 4 and the outdoor reception starts at 5. I want our guests to be comfortable but It's a wedding so I feel shorts are too casual. I am trying to be fair and happy :)

 

Also curious as to what shoes other brides are wearing on the sand / lawn? My MOH wants to wear heels but I think I will fall over Lol!

Idk I say (my opinion) shorts could be fine. After all your having a tropical destination wedding. I'm sure no one would wear jean shorts. Women probably wouldn't even consider shorts. They probably would want to wart dresses. Now if you you are having an inside ceremony and venue under air conditioning it might be suggest dress or dress casual if specifying your guests attire is of importance. Also time of year and time a day have a lot to do with the elements and what your guests are comfortable with if it outdoors.

 

I am wearing barefoot sandals for ceremony on beach and ballet slip ons for dance supply store for reception!

Congrats!

Thunder thumbs gets me every time! Ignore my typing! ;)

I'm not completely opposed to shorts (as long as they are dressy shorts). To be honest, i'd prefer that the guests dress in pants/wedding appropriate attire, but my ceremony is being held on a terrace and not the beach. I guess it also depends on the setting.

The first time I went to a DW as a guest I was a bit stressed about what to wear (more so than when I would attend a local wedding). I didn't want to seem to casual but I also didn't want to show up too dressy (since it was on the beach and all).

 

When we decided to have a DW we wanted to help our guests with some suggestions. We don't really care what they wear as long as it is comfortable and they are not topless in their swim trunks lol! We simply put on our website "Beach formal attire" (to be honest I didn't know this was a term until I started asking around and googled it haha) and said no swimsuits or coverups please. :)

We said no swimsuits. As suggestions we said a nice pair of shorts or a sun dress. I feel bad for the men that wore pants because it was hotter than heck. I had sweat running down my legs in my dress.

I'm adopting what someone said here. "Whatever you would wear to a nice restaurant." Of course when my mother asked and I told her this she needed clarification. "A restaurant here or down there?" Ha! I think it still gets the point across.
