When I bought my wedding dress I had not idea I would be planning a destination wedding. The length of my dress is perfect for 3 1/2 inch heals, but since I will be on the beach….heals are definitely out of the question. What do you guys think about wedges?
Another option would be to hem my dress, but just wanted to get your thoughts bees. Has any brides worn wedges on the beach?

It depends on the type of sand..some sand is hard to walk in and i know of persons on the beach in wedges that have turned their ankle- ouchie! I was debating it myself and I am of the view that wear flip flops or barefoot sandals to be safe and sure

I wore wedges to a restaurant on the beach in jersey last summer and ended up breaking the strap and ruining my shoes. not too mention really hurting my ankle. They werent flimsy shoes either. I would strongly advise against it.
in my defense, we requested to not be seated on the sand but it was unavailable.

I’ll also admit to hurting myself walking in wedges on the sand. Mine weren’t as high (like 2 inch heels). I would get your dress hemmed and find some super sparkly flip flop goddess shoes instead.

My wedding was on the beach & I didn’t even bother with flip flops! I don’t know how formal your wedding will be but I opted for just barefoot sandals (he was barefoot) & then changed into my shoes for dinner. If I had it to do all over again I’d do the same exact thing. Assuming your dress is the traditional long dress, nobody will see the shoes anyway.

I think the only safe and comfortable way to walk on the beach is barefoot. My daughter and the attendents all took their shoes off as they approached the sand, but wore slides that were easily removed without bending over. The men wore leather flip flops, but wish they’d gone barefoot as well.
The bride’s change into shoes for the indoor reception were low wedges…comfy and easy to dance in!

I am a foot shorter than my husband so I was really concerned about going barefoot on the beach for our beach wedding. I wore wedge flip flops for height for the ceremony and then changed into my regular heels for the reception, which was on a patio. I did not hurt myself and to be honest, they were more comfortable than my heels anyway lol. Only issue I had was I kept stepping on the bottom front of my dress – one arm was through my dad’s when he walked me down, the other holding my bouquet. So I had to keep kicking the front of my dress out so I wouldn’t step on it lol but no one noticed and that would have happened with or without the wedges.
