I'm wearing low top slip on Converse with the dress for my at home wedding, and no shoes for my Hawaii wedding, so I am going to have it altered with bare feet. I don't mind if the Converse show a little since they are the same shade of ivory as my dress, and also I don't want my dress to be too long on the beach. Plus the syle of my dress is poofy at the bottom so I don't really think they will show anyways.

    I think I'm going to get my altered with bare feet as well. At the reception I'll be wearing flip flops so should be okay..

      Ok I maybe the only crazy one-but I refuse to go barefoot! I'm taller too but so is my FI. I am wearing wedges for the beach (I think I'm going to have a ramp too) and so are my bridesmaids. I'm crazy!

        LOL...You're not crazy. I didn't really want to be totally barefoot either, more like some cute low sandals that will work on sand. But really, what shoe works in the sand? And I sooo do not like wedges. I've never ever had a pair. Don't ask me why. So my search for the right shoe will continue.

          Have you thought about the ballerina shoes. My MOH wants to decorate them. I could wear them after the beach ceremony as well.

          Just a thought

            Thats a thought! The only problem is I think I need something with a little height, especially since I'm on the short side anyway.

                  I'm having my dress altered for my height while barefoot. i have some flip flops that i may wear during the reception, but even so, the flip flops are less than an inch thick.

                  my sales lady was totally cool with the no shoes thing - i was kinda blown away! she was like "no shoes! that's perfect!"

                    I had my dress altered for in between flats and heels. I figured no matter what length you have it for on the beach, you are going to sink in the sand so a little too long makes no difference. I wanted people to see my heels so a little short was good for that!
