MrsRoberts52:  I wore shoes down the aisle and for the first half of pictures, then i trucked barefoot through the woods for the rest of my pictures – photographer thought I was crazy.

Barn and barefoot just don’t belong in  the same sentence to me.

Maybe it’s the Registered Nurse in me- I automatically think tetanus.

I say get some comfy, flat sandals, in case you want to wear them, but if you’re comfy barefoot, go for it!

We had a backyard wedding. I’m also notoriously barefoot. I wore sandals for the ceremony and cocktail hour. Then I put on some short heels for our first dance, so that I wasn’t tripping over my dress, and when I took the heels off, I just never put shoes back on. 

I think my shoes were $15 at Target:

I wore a cute pair of flat sandals that I’ve had for years. I wanted to be comfortable and knew heels would make me miserable. I wouldn’t suggest going barefoot in a barn if the floor is wood. I’d be so afraid of splinters! If it’s a smooth surface, then go ahead and go barefoot 🙂

I’m wearing ballet flats–for two reasons: I want comfortable (I’m a jeans and sneakers kinda girl) and I wanted flats because I’m 5’9″ and didn’t want to add any height! They’re satin and white and perfect 🙂

Mine is going to be on the beach and on cobble stones/grass for the reception/after party. I’m going barefoot with some gorgeous ankle jewelery! I do tend to eschew shoes on the daily anyways though so the choice was easy.

MrsRoberts52:  Wow, gorgeous dress!  I wore 1″ wedges for our outdoor ceremony (so I would look taller next to my tall hubby, and a little more elongated / thinner – shallow I know, lol!!!) but went barefoot at the casual outdoor reception.  One of the few things my husband insisted on was that he didn’t want to wear shoes – he hates shoes, and was willing to compromise with sandals.  So sure, I thought barefoot was fine, so he didn’t wear shoes the whole time.

Anyway, this is what my shoe looked like.  I wanted something kinda unobtrusive…
