We’re doing a beach wedding in October and I have no idea about shoes. The cermony is on the sand and the reception is outdoors on a large deck right by the beach. If I go barefoot for the ceremony then shoes for the reception, my dress length would be off, right? But shoes (even flip flop type shoes/sandals) for walking on the sand is hard.
Just curious if anyone else has suggestions or won’t mind sharing what they’re doing.

I agree with Lillindy about reception flats. There are some really cute dressy ones out there.
Another option might depend on your dress. I have a petticoat that shows at the bottom of mine. My dressmaker is making the waist adjustable so that I can wear it higher (i.e. lower heels) for the reception if I need to. Don’t know if something similar could work with your dress (opp, though, heels at reception).

I am having a beach ceremony and have chosen Isotoner ballet slippers. Not only will they be incredibly comfortable, but I am taller than my fiancee, so this was necessary. I am walking barefoot for the ceremony, because as you’ve said, it is quite difficult to walk on the sand with anything on your feet. I have considered wearing foot jewelry to dress up my feet since I won’t be wearing shoes, but I fear it would be a waste because no one would be able to see them. It’s a shame, because I think the foot jewelry is really pretty.

I LOVE heels & just wouldn’t feel "pretty" unless I wore them for my beach wedding…
So, we’re getting plywood, just really thin squares of wood & laying them down where I’ll walk & covering them up with sand. Hopefully it works out well, I’ll be able to let you know in 13 days! :~)

I was the opposite. Ceremony on the cliffs, which required shoes and then reception on the sand. So I had the dress altered to the desired length with shoes and then took my shoes off for the reception. You could wear flats. If you want to wear heels for your reception, just get the dress altered to that length. Chances are your dress is going to drag in the sand regardless, right?

I found this picture in the Gallery. Apparantly she made them herself! I love this!
