You might consider a wedge shoe for during the ceremony that is the same height as your heels. That will keep your dress from being too long, but the wedge won’t sink into the sand. 

I’m not having a beach wedding, but I am planning an outdoor wedding, so I had to be conscious of heels sinking into the dirt! Lucky for me most of the ceremony space has brick/stone walkways, so I won’t have to worry about it much other than for pictures.

My daughter had the same issues, but she had to walk across a brick patio first, then onto the sand, then up to the deck for cocktail hour,then inside for the reception. We decided since she needed to be on the decking for at least an hour, we didn’t want her heels to possibly get stuck in any of the boards. What she did was wear a pretty slide for her walk in with her Dad, and once she hit the sand,she kicked them off (as did the BM’s before her). She then put on her ‘dancing shoes’ after pictures were done outside, and those were mid-heel wedges that were practical and comfy and that she could wear all night. When her dress was altered for length, we brought both pairs with us. Since the heel height on both was comparable, the seamstress made the dress wearable for both pairs of shoes. It sounds complicated, but it worked out perfectly.

Everything she tried (shoe wise) sunk down way too deep for her to walk without looking like an ape! Shoeless for the ceremony was the best option for her.

Our guests were in chairs on the patio and only the bridal party was on the sand, so no shoe worries there.

Are you getting married at the Jersey shore?

This is where our guests sat, and the bridal party made their entrance along those darker brick areas which was like an aisle.
