So you’re prepping for your beach wedding and checked off more boxes than you even realize. The guest list is set, the venue is decorated, and even your casual surfside gown is paid for and ready to go. But that seemingly tiny detail of shoes all of a sudden seems a monumental task. Shopping for beach wedding shoes is certainly quite a feat—you’re seeking a style that’s casual yet special, won't to sink into the sand, and appropriately festive, a tricky combination. Our advice? When seeking beach wedding shoes, consider three specific styles: block heels, wedge espadrilles, and flat sandals. Here’s why.
When you want traditional heels underneath your wedding dress, consider block heels. They’re much more forgiving on uneven surfaces on the most basic level, and they’re the chicest way to get that classic sky-high look with a more stable base.
For the most support in a shoe with rise, consider wedge heels. And when planning that beachside wedding, no wedge style is more appropriate than espadrilles. Boasting a full sole that’ll allow you the apparent skill of Lady Gaga when walking in the sand, the canvas toe and lace-up ankle will have you dreaming of summer practically from the moment you take them out of the box.
If there was ever a moment to really lean into the flats trend, it would be a beachside wedding. And you might as well fully dive into the summertime vibe with a gorgeous pair of sandals. Whether you’re looking for elegant and thin straps, over-the-top embellishment, or edgy metallic gladiators, these are the beach-wedding shoes for you.
