Sandals

Feel the sand beneath your feet with openwork, flat sandals. Don’t make the mistake of dismissing this look as boring because it’s anything but. You’ll stay comfortable and cool.

There’s few parings as perfect as flat sandals and a sand-skimming dress at a beach wedding…aside from you and your intended, of course.

Wedge Sandals

If you want height and style at your beach wedding then say ‘I do’ to wedges. Ideal for a sandy terrain, the wonderful wedge will distribute your weight (no sinking into the sand) ensuring that when you walk to the alter, all eyes will be on you for the right reasons. From rope sole wedges for a bohemian beach wedding, to metallic wedge sandals, there’s a look to suit every bride.

Flats

If sand between your toes isn’t your thing, then go for a closed toe flat style that will take you from the ceremony to the dancefloor. There’s myriad options, from dress loafers and pretty slip-on mules through to sports-style luxe. An ankle strap can really flatter the feet as well as providing some security, while embellished designs can make a grand statement. Flats look as good as high heels and will make walking on sand a breeze.

Sartorial elegance at its best.
