If a beach wedding is your idea of a perfect ceremony, then you probably have a dozen breezy bridal gowns on your Pinterest board by now. However, choosing the dress is half the fun… there’s also the shoes that you have to think about! Compared to church weddings or indoor weddings, picking the right pair of beach wedding shoes is a lot trickier because there’s the venue’s terrain that you have to consider: Will you be walking on sand most of the time? Are there cobblestones or rocky pavement that you might come across? Will you be spending some time by the sea?
Despite all the factors you have to keep in mind, know that there are plenty of options that are appropriate for tying the knot by the beach. Here, we’ve rounded up all the prettiest—and most practical—pairs that will make your walk down the aisle a comfortable one.
