I think mats would work, I can imagine a lot of guests in heels would appreciate it also. Are you doing the wedding at a resort or something? I’d ask if they have anything you could use.

Not sure where you live but this might be an option… http://www.beachwheelchair.com/

Looks like it’s around $50 a day to rent which is a small price to pay I would think.

is there any chance you could have your ceremony on a dock or pier at a beach? that way you wouldn’t have to worry and still have the beach feel.

My friend suggested plywood “isle” for my dad because she was afraid her back yard would be too bumpy.   My dad said it would have worked fine but didn’t use it as he has a power chair which works fine on bumpy ground, gravel, etc… he’s never been on the beach in it tho.

Maybe contact local societies for MS, veterans, amputees, etc and just say you were wondering how to make a wheelchair work on the beach, if someone needed a special one or what was best to put down or what they suggested.  Good luck!
