    I cannot imagine not wearing high heels with my wedding dress but dont want to fall on my face in the sand. Anyone else wear heels and have any regrets or horror stories?

      My WC told me she had someone insist on wearing stilletos and it was very akward. I was barefoot (wedding party too) but heels would have been difficult and uncomfortable. Toes in the sand is a good feeling - especially on a tropical beach on your wedding day.....can you maybe save the heels for the reception?

        I think some girls were going for wedges but personally I wouldn't have been able to handle anything more than flip flops in the sand and even that was a pain because the sand kept getting flicked up.. my bridesmaids who didn't want to walk on the plank walkway at Dreams all of a sudden hopped up during their long walk to the ceremony site.. I guess the sand was flicking all over and they were more afraid of tripping in the sand than on the planks.. opps.. got off topic. Anyhow, if you live close to a beach you may want to check it out, but I would think it would be impossible to walk (worse than on soft grass).

          I was running around in my heels in the sand. Vincent took a picture of it. It really wasn't that difficult because I kept my heels off of the sand and walked on the front of my feet.

            i really want to wear heels because i am so short, but I think it would be really tricky getting around in them in the sand. so, i am opting for some cute white Havianas flip flops. if you go to the website they have all sorts, even with wedges and kitten heels.

              I think it would be too difficult to get down the aisle with heels on in the sand so I think i'll go barefoot for that part then put on a pair of heels later for the reception.

              I don't think it's a good idea. Even if you want on your toes you will have an akward walk. Not to mention you might be a little shaky from nerves!

                I'm doing barefoot or sandals for the ceremony and heels for the reception. I will also be getting my dress hemmed for bare feet, so with the heels on it might be just a tad high, but there's no train or anything anyway, and I'm sure it will look fine.

                  I'm short and my fiance is tall so I'm wearing wedge heels.

                  We'll see how it goes!!

                    I am wearing wedge heels for the ceremony in the sand, and then the original heels I bought for my dress the rest of the day. I had bought flip flops, but when I tried them on with my dress, it just didn't look right... and when I walk you can see my shoes. Also, I can't really go barefoot since I had my dress altered to a 3" heel. I think I would trip on it without shoes on.
