I’m also getting married on a beach and am contemplating doing something like this. I may need some platform sandals for height tho, so we’ll see.

I found this website based on a review on one of the wedding sites from another beach bride: http://www.beachbridejewelry.com/shop/barefootsandals/outerbanks.html. They will also send you samples of the colors of the jewels they use to make it easier to match your wedding colors.

Hope this helps!

So glad you posted this. i’m having trouble finding them as well. I started to DIY, but haven’t gotten far due to work. I’ll be sure to upload pics if they turn out well.

@ravenzoe – so glad you posted that link, thanks!

These are easy to make.  The secret is to use thin elastic cord and to measure each gal.

Get Powercord cheap here:

Only use crystals at highlight points.  They are expensive, especially if you are making 14 anklets/sandals.  Faux pearls are inexpensive.  Mixing them with crystals is very pretty and the bridesmaids can wear them with anything later.

Plan how to decorate where the cord ties off.  I think the knot looks best atthe back of the ankle with a couple of beads on the dangling ends.  Ask the gal at the bead store to show you some end beads that you clamp on the ends of the cords with simple pliers.  You don’t need other tools.

A beadboard is inexpensive and a big help.

I’ve always bought toe rings from this store in Laguna Beach and they sell those barefoot sandals–they are called Shoells or something. Call them to be sure–i don’t see it on their website

I think you could totally DIY no problem! I looked at those a couple of years ago and I think (if I remember correctly) they were kinda pricey for just beads and elastic cord!

@jspeby sorry about that, i missed the decent price part of your comment. The beach bridal jewelry is a bit pricy, but I just had to share the site…I thought it was a great find!
