I am trying to make a final decision on my dress, and I love this one but I’m having a hard time envisioning what kind of shoes to go with this… I’m most likely going to be barefooted the whole time anyway (it’s an outdoor wedding at FI’s family’s barn with the reception in my parent’s courtyard) but I figure I should buy shoes to at least walk down the aisle in… On the other hand I’ve seen some really beautiful barefoot sandal jewelry that I like so maybe I could forgo the shoes entirely? Does anyone even do that? Lol
I just really hate shoes, and I never wear heels and comfort is my #1 priority.

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.

MrsRoberts52: I love the idea of going barefoot! Do it!

MsGinkgo: I just know this is going to be me. I went to my parent’s house today and my dad saw my barefeet (it’s getting cold here in the mornings) and just shook his head. haha I leave shoes in the car just in case I need to wear them, otherwise… Nope haha
MrsA1222: Thanks! FI said he wouldn’t care/be surprised so I just might. 🙂

There’s lots of ideas for “barefoot sandals” on etsy that are really cool and bohemian looking! Otherwise a simple sandal would look nice as well 🙂
These are kind of the style of sandal I think would look lovely. http://www.bhldn.com/shop-sale-shoes/corsica-sandals/productoptionids/0848592b-d439-4e88-b197-5a7086f4ba0f

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.

julies1949: Ahh I should have said that it’s in the grassy area right outside the barn; we’re using the barn as a backdrop. Haha. I promise to try to not get tetnus! lol

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…
