I didn’t get married on the beach but I’ve walked on the beach.  Forget about a heel!  Any heel at all will just sink in the sand.  I’d go barefoot or wear flip flops/beach sandals.  I just saw some really cute flip flops with fabric rosettes on them in DSW yesterday.  I told my daughter they looked very bridal.

Of course if you don’t like these, there are many other beach sandals in many other stores and at many other sites.

Personally, I HATE when brides wear flip flops, they just aren’t a fancy shoe.. also flip flops on dry sand can be really uncomfortable since they flap sand up at you while you walk. It would be really nice to do it barefoot and have a nice pair of shoes for when you’re no longer in the sand. 

 

If you don’t want to go barefoot, I’d go for some nice, pretty non-thong sandals

@kingytobe: Exactly. I pretty much live at the beach and literally the second my feet touch the sand, my slippers come off because they will only fling sand up my butt. LOL. So I would nevvver try to walk down the (beach) aisle with them on!

I’m pretty sure I’ll be going barefoot, either that or wearing cowboy boots because I’ll be riding my horse for part of the time.

I wouldn’t wear heals on the beach. I’d go barefoot and then wear the heals to the reception. 🙂

I would go barefoot for the ceremony, get the heels you love for the reception afterward.   Do not wear flip flops….when you walk they will be flinging sand up in your booty, not to mention that awful sound that flip flops can make when they hit your heels!  : )   

I’m having a beachside ceremony on a grassy lawn, wearing a small heel for that but going barefoot for the pictures when we’re out on the beach in the sand.

our ceremony is on the beach and im just too short to not go with anything but i absoultely HATE those chunky cheap bright white platform “flip-flops” (we call them slippers here in hawaii)!! i bought ivanka trump strappy 3 1/2′ heels for the reception and refuse to wear those “bridal flip flops” that i keep seeing everywhere – espeically since i have such beautiful heels! sorry girls. but this morning, there was hope as i found champange REEF slippers (flip-flops! sorry) on nordstroms.com with sparkly thin straps.  i think i may get them. (called Reef Krystal Star flip-flops for anyone interested).

my heels are high enough that i am worried the ceremony pictures will show my dress bunched at the bottom and thats not gonna work!! otherwise i would be barefoot!

I wore sandles and regretted it.  Wish I had just gone barefoot in the sand.  It’s the beach!  I think barefoot is the way to go.

I am wearing foot jewlery also known as barefeet sandals. They are very pretty and can be custom made. Mine are my something blue. They give the look of a beautiful sandal but there is no bottom so technically you are barefoot

I’m wearing these, only in white/pearl:  http://shop.stagestores.com/catalog/product/view/id/228182/olivia-miller-rhinestone-flower-sandal/

Yes, they’re a little clunky to look at by themselves, but I find they look much better on.  My dress is long enough to hide most of the wedge heel from view, so all most people will be able to see is thepretty embellishment over the front of my foot.  They’re comfortable, and barefoot isn’t an option for me on the particular beach where we’ll be marrying — too many sharp broken shells & rocks in the sand.  Because of the angle of the wedge, they don’t do the flop down / snap up thing that flat flip flops do on me, so I’m hopeful that they’ll kick up less sand than traditional flip flops would.  And the price was low enough that I was able to afford another, somewhat fancier pair of shoes for the reception.
