Wedding sandals—once reserved purely for destination weddings and elopements—are our little secret when it comes to finding wedding shoes that you can re-wear after the big day is over. While it's true that beach wedding sandals tend to be more casual than a closed-toe pump, there are plenty of embellished and heeled sandal options that would be appropriate for fancier dress codes, too. And the best part? The laid-back look of beach wedding shoes has its perks, because a more casual style leaves room for flexibility when it comes to actually wearing the shoes again after your wedding day. So whether you're getting married on the beach and need a pair of sandals you can easily slip on and off, or you're looking for bridesmaid or guest shoes, we've got you covered!
