Hi all! I'm looking for advice on wedding shoes! My ceremony will be taking place on a beach and I'm torn over what to wear.. is barefoot a bad idea? Should I just go with a flat sandal? I was thinking of possibly bringing a heel for my first dance since my fiancé is 6'7", but I can't see walking down the aisle in sand in heels. What do you recommend? If you had a beach wedding, what did you wear for shoes?
You could wear wedges or shoes with a block heel- but barefoot is totally normal for beach weddings! I don't see anything wrong with wearing shoes at the reception/first dance but going barefoot for the ceremony, it'd probably be more comfortable with the sand
I wore sneakers for my beach ceremony, hah. But my beach had some rocks and such on it, I was worried I’d step on something uncomfortable if I was barefoot. On a nice sandy beach barefoot is okay, just make sure the sand isn’t too hot! Some sand can burn my feet.
If it’s not too hot, barefoot. But I had a baddddd experience with barefoot and injured my feet on the beach. I will go barefoot after my wedding, but not before or during. It was too painful for a while, and I couldn’t really enjoy my stay that time. I bought espadrilles for my bridesmaids, and their soles are wide enough and easy enough to walk on sand.
Thanks all for the responses! Sounds like barefoot or barefoot sandals are the way to go for ceremony. I hadn't thought about the sand being too hot so I'll definitely keep that in mind though as it gets closer!
