    How far do you have to walk on sand?  You can get these roll-out wood paths.  They are kind of pricey and it might still be hard to walk on since there are gaps between the planks.  I think if you wrap the thing in fabric, it will be harder to walk on since you won’t be able to see where the gaps are and your heel might catch the fabric.

    1.If you have access to driftwood logs, you could splt some in half and use the flat side up to make a path and a small area for the ceremony.

    2. Take the plain plywood, lay it down on the sand and just cover it with a sprinking of sand- just enough to cover the plywood, but still give you some firm footing.

    3.Use your idea and line the edges of the path and the ceremony area with driftwood.

    Could you wear wedge heels instead of stilettos?

    I voted “lunatic”. lol  I don’t see how even plywood is going to be that sturdy unless you get a grader beforehand and then compact the sand underneath.  It’s still going to wobble a bit and in heels that is not good.

    Are flats or wedges even a remote possiblity?

    I would either do the wood walkway or buy some foxy red wedges! Wedges are awesome and they’ll probably last you the whole day and night. I plan on finding some fuchsia wedges for mine. Good luck!

    Hmm, what about changing the ceremony spot?  Just a smidge? Is there a grassy area nearby that overlooks the sand and water?  It’s so much easier than trying to slog through sand with shoes on. Or even barefoot.  It’s really hard to look graceful in that situation. It’s just a thought and then you could wear your red heels with no issues AND get still married at the beach

    I would check Craigslist and other local classifieds to see if anyone’s getting rid of flagstones. You could make yourself a simple pathway of stepping stones to walk along.
