Having a beach wedding ceremony is a gorgeous option for brides and grooms who want to get married in the romantic breeze of the ocean, stepping on hot sands and embraced by the wonderfully relaxed atmosphere of the beach.
Do you know what shoes you and your guests should wear at your beach ceremony, though? Here are some tips you should remember when it comes to this:
- Put comfort first. Forget your high heels at home for the ceremony part of your Big Day, don’t choose shoes that are closed-toed (sand can very easily get in them) and don’t even think of wearing accident-prone stilettoes.
- Instead, wear flats or flat sandals – they look really great and they are perfect for the casual ambiance of a beach ceremony. Also, if you want just a bit of height to your wedding look, wear platforms or wedge sandals (they do much better in the sand, while providing you with an elegant allure as well). And, if you want to be completely unique, go completely barefoot – it is perfectly OK as long as this is what you want.
- Don’t forget to let your guests know of the shoes they should wear too. Your bridesmaids (and all of the other guests) deserve to be comfortable and they should follow the same basic “guidelines” too. Since sharing all these tips on a wedding invitation may be too much, you might want to do it on your wedding website or via another form of communication (email, a Social Media post you will only share with your guests, and so on).
- Last, but definitely not least, do take into consideration the option of offering your guests comfortable shoes for the ceremony. For example, some brides provide their guests with personalized flip-flops to add a casual touch to the event and make everyone feel truly comfortable.
