    @Lia33 this crossed my mind too. I love the idea of barefoot sandals, but they might not be practical. I may go with simple flats.

    @racht33@Wafflesmom
    OMG not that I care if others care, but I can see myself emotional in tears walking and the flops flipping n loosing my patience lol. TGF barefoot sandals. FYI I am having reception on concrete and don't want to risk stubbing and skinning a toe in celebration mode, so I am switching into dancer ballet flats. The real authentic dancer flats at dancer supply stores. Not paying $30 plus for a pair of flats that might, dig into Achilles' tendon or squeeze foot! $15 dancer supply yes please! Plus when dancing I wanna be able to lift my foot without loosing my shoe!

     

    Ok. I'll ask. What's the difference between a regular flat and ballet flat? I just looked on a ballet website, and I can see where the elastic strap would be helpful but other than that?


    I said "yes" again to the love of my life at Grand Coral Beach Club, Playa del Carmen, Mexico on our 4th anniversary - October 20, 2015

    Love the barefoot sandals idea. I was originally going to purchase them, but we have decided to have our ceremony on the sky terrace now instead. I am thinking of purchasing a sandal (not flip flop) in a rose gold or gold/silver mismatch.

    Something like this style

    That's a good question. A standard ballet shoe (non point)
    Is like wearing nothing in terms of feeling weightless around your foot. It is very different than a flat "ballet" shoe that you would buy at a regular shoe store.
    The material is designed to conform to your foot and is extremely soft. There are different soles depending on your needs. If you are not using them for dance you would not worry about the soles and instead find one you like. The best way to model the difference would be to try them on.
    @Lia33 valid concern! Take note the sand where you are marrying is not hot. It is white sand. Don't hold me too it but I've never felt the sand hot there and the locals also have made comments to the same! You will not burn your feet at all :)

    I've never burnt my feet in Mexico in January or April. But I have in Cuba and it's white sand. It was pipping hot!!! Not sure how the white sand plays into if it's hot or not?!? But probably will just need to test it out for yourselves individually. Also people tolerate things differently too.

    There's a link I posted above and it's talking about how the sand feels cool there. Different theories, the color, possibly limestone, possibly more porous etc. I can't speak for anyone else's sensitivity but I remember it being kinda cool on the feet.

    It's definately not as nice of sand in Mexico so those theories may be correct forsure :)

    I heard the same theory about the composition of the sand. I'm from Argentina and our sand has a lot of iron. It will blister the bottom of your feet if you walk barefoot on the dry part. When we went to punta Cana they told us that because of the coral make up of the sand it doesn't heat up there.
