@@LisaAnthonyPoppy @@calgarybride2015 yeah, I've never gotten blisters, but that's what happened to my uncle. It's still pretty painful to walk on it so you always have to wear your sandals until you get to the wet sand. They have little pathways that go down to get you closer to the ocean so you don't have to walk on the hot sand.

Thought I would add onto this thread as I need some input, please! I'm thinking I should find shoes this spring/summer, otherwise I may be screwed trying to find them next winter, so don't want to wait too long. 

 

I'm planning to get a short wedding dress. Something like this:

 

dress inspiration

 
I'm only 5'3 and my fiance is 6'4, so I want some height and also I have awesome calves :P . For previous brides - are wedges manageable on the sand? I feel like wedge flipflops would be too casual. But heels are impossible, and I don't want flats. Our ceremony is on the beach and our reception is on a wood terrace, so heels might be an issue there as well. 
 
I saw these at Payless online (I might even do blue, as I am leaning to blue for our wedding color). Another bride on here posted about them, but I don't remember who. What do you ladies think?

@@vancouverpetunia My FI is 6'5 and I'm 5'5, so I have a similar footwear predicament.

 

I'm interested in what you decide and to hear the opinions of the other ladies here. I think those wedges are cute so hopefully they would fare well in the sand.

 

I'm doing beach ceremony and wood floor reception as well so I have been trying to decide if I have to do barefoot (or flat sandals) for the beach part so would love to hear that wedges are manageable for the whole day :)

I think it was either Kcole or Meandhim. The shoes look a bit familiar! lol They're so pretty though! check both threads and you'll see if it was either of those ladies.

I was going to say meandhim for the Payless shoes, but kcole's were very similar as well :)  we spend too much time here don't we? ;)

lol when we start remembering shoes... it makes you stop and think! lol But it's because they're so distinctive and I think you're right that it was Meandhim. I looked back at Kristy's and they were different. I'm still trying to decide on mine! I'll get there eventually I hope.

Ah-ha! @@acw271011 and @@calgarybride2015

It was meandhim, but it was the first pair of shoes she bought, and I think she decided to not use them at the wedding. 

 

@@Meandhim - Sounds like you kept these shoes and decided to wear them for an upcoming wedding (as a guest). Are they comfy? Do you like them?

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
