    Not seeing your dress makes this difficult.  Some dresses you can have the bustle done so that it brings up the length some, but I’m not sure how much this can be done.  I, personally, am opting for flats because I cannot keep heels on for the amount of hours I’ll be on my feet.  If you insist on heels as I know some girls do then I would go with a high sandal or a lower heel so that you are not dragging your dress on the beach or tripping over it all night.  Unless you really don’t mind trashing it…

    Wear your killer heels, but take a pair of really comfy wedges that are around the same height as your heels for when you go on the beach. If wearing wedges on the beach won’t work maybe you will just have to get lower heels, or deal with carrying the front of your dress around all ngiht?

    Idk how wedges will be actually since the angle of the heel might still be dangerous in the sand. I would get some high platform flip flops or something else that will be more stable at your ankle than a wedge

    @Blushingbella:  Depending on the length of your dress, get a wrist loop bustle. That way, you can wear your pretty shoes and then dance the night away in the sand without any worries!


    ETA: I went back and saw your dress. Could you have the seamstress make the bottom tier detachable?

    @Blushingbella:  I wore 4.5 inch heels for our Destination Wedding which was on a tile roof top but then  we went down to the beach for pics and I got white wedge flip flops to change into

    The were my wedding shoes



    I got these to change into they were 3.5 so only 1 inch short than my heels and I did fine once I changed

    Maybe you can look for some wedge type flip flops a little higher than these for the reception
