Are you wondering what shoes to wear for beach wedding ceremony and/or reception? We received this question from bride-to-be, Lisa, in our latest Ask Emmaline series. She is planning a beach wedding and needs to find the best shoes to wear for it. She writes,
“Hi Emmaline! I’m planning a beach wedding and found my dress but now I have no idea what shoes to wear. Should I wear flats or sandals? What shoes is the bride supposed to wear for a beach wedding? Thanks!”
What Shoes to Wear Beach Wedding
Great question! Since heels are nearly impossible on sand, we say skip the heels and save them for the dance floor. Instead, try on a pair of barefoot sandals, one of our favorite beach wedding footwear options! Of course, custom flip flops are awesome… and flats work, too… but barefoot sandals are a fun trend worth a try! They’ll also look great on your honeymoon while sipping on drinks poolside. We found these amazing barefoot sandals from Modern Crochet Club and they are the ultimate choice for walking on the sand. It gives the illusion of wearing shoes but you are actually walking right on the sand.
We love these beach wedding shoes for the bride and for the entire wedding party! See how cute they look on bridesmaids, too?
There are many different styles to choose from with rhinestones, shells, crochet flowers — you name it. Check out a few of our hand-picked favorites:
There are even barefoot sandals for the flower girl!

P.S. We recommend wearing a pair of these for your reception, especially if it’s indoors. Bare feet + indoor venues + broken glass = :(
