Shoes to wear on the sand?!

91 days until my wedding. All the big things are set so now I'm thinking about the smaller details. Right now, I'm struggling with accesories. We're getting married in FL at a resort. Our ceremony will take place on sand (not a real beach) overlooking the water. I have my first dress fitting soon and need to figure out my shoes. I'm 5'1 and have always worn heels with dresses to give me extra height so I bought a pair of 2 inch block heels. But will I sink in the sand? I don't want to struggle walking down the aisle. I'll be nervous enough. So should I go barefoot for the ceremony? I'm torn because my dress wont look as good without the extra height but the thought of being comfortable is appealing too. Ladies who will be getting married on the sand, what shoes are you wearing?! Pics are bonus.

    You can wear wedges. They’re less likely to sink !

    I got married on the beach and decided to go barefoot then wore my shoes for the reception. It was much easier to walk in the sand with bare feet.

    I think for sand it's better barefoot or something like flip flops and sandals

    I wore a flat sandal with an ankle strap. I didn’t flip sand into my dress, burn my feet (like i would have if i was barefoot) and was comfortable walking on the sand and also on our wooden terrace. Shoes to wear on the sand?! 2

    I have seen on Etsy decorative sand sandal. Basically rhinestones on top of foot and around ankle with no bottom.

    Beautiful Allie! You look stunning. I didn't even think about the hot sand. Good call! The more I think about it, the more I'm leaning towards comfort. It would be a nice change to not have to think about sore feet for once. Lol.

    I wore Kate Spade glitter Keds. They were great for walking on the beach and comfortable on the concrete pavilion as well.
