I got married on the beach and I went barefoot as did all my BMs. Then I just threw on some flats for the reception. Worked perfectly.

I got married on the beach and wore flip flops (I got wedge flip flops from Etsy)…in hindsight, I should have just gone barefoot…lol

My plan was to go barefoot, but then I never got a chance to take my flip flops off so I wore those. I really wish I would’ve taken them off!

I had been planning a wedding on the beach in FL for this coming Spring.  I purchased Ralph Lauren gold sandals similar to these.

All of my clients are always barefoot, and put on shoes for the reception. Walking in shoes on sand isn’t fun….especially flip-flops as it flicks sand up the back of your dress.

When it comes to walking on the sand, I wouldn’t trust myself with wedges, even if they were low winkFlats would be my choice, something like these, from Melissa:

cmktwedding :  Yeah…shoes on the beach just aren’t practical. They’re under your dress and not seen, and even open shoes will be filled with sand in between your foot and the sole of the shoe. There just really isn’t any point, to me, in wearing shoes on the beach when really they won’t even be seen. Now if you’re getting married somewhere with a wooden walkway, dock, deck, etc – by all means find some cute sandles but for being on the beach I suggest just going barefoot.

A lot depends on the beach. In my area our beaches are mostly loose sand. However, I did live in Florida and the east coast beaches tend to be pretty hard-packed sand. I just personally think sand in shoes feels aweful/uncomfortable. Plus, if for some reason you hit a soft spot while walking you don’t have the same stability as you do barefoot for your feet to mold/grip the sand.

I would just go barefoot and add one of these.  It’s like jewelry for your feet!
