28 shoes for beach wedding guests: These sand-friendly styles are perfect for a seaside ceremony

0

There is no such thing as a ceremony by the sea. If you answered yes for the upcoming nuptials of a friend or family member and the dress code nods to a beach-chic aesthetic, footwear will be a priority. Shoes for guests at a beach wedding can be a fashion snag – you need to look presentable and polished in a venue where you would otherwise be barefoot.

Unlike terrain where stilettos are auspicious, sand is less favorable to stern heels. The solution? Leaning into silhouettes that thrive in casual surroundings while complementing a whimsical dress.

It may come as a surprise that basic footwear such as flat sandals and even espadrilles can translate to an evening spent on the sand. You’ll see it on cult brands like Staud and Cult Gaia, where trendy shoe shapes like wedges and block heels are making their way. There are also options on the luxury designer front, like a pair of buckled slingback sandals from Roger Vivier or even pearl-embellished heels as seen at Jimmy Choo. There’s a world of options beyond the classic high heel, from fancy flip flops to sleek wedge heels that won’t sink in the sand.

Easy slides

A carefree shoe silhouette, like the flip-flop, can translate to a seaside ceremony when crafted in festive prints and colors or beautiful textures like raffia or braiding. Plus, if the mood takes you, you can easily take them off your feet for a quick spin on the sand.
