The Best Shoes for Beach Weddings
I’m still on my beach wedding kick, and so it only makes sense that we talk about beach wedding shoes! Beach weddings call for sand-friendly, but statement-making sandals. Read on to see my thoughts behind these picks for sandals for beach weddings!

I’m usually a fan of a heeled shoe for a wedding, but the beach is one place where a high heel–or any shoe that has a barrier to balance in the sand–is an impediment, which is the last thing you want on your wedding day! I often recommend a wedge heel for an outside wedding, but on a sandy beach, unless the wedge heel is super-low ( i.e., under an inch) it is probably going to cause some trouble. Going barefoot is always an option, but for those who want a little something for their feet that goes beyond the standard rubber flip-flop, I suggest these embellished sandals. These are designer styles, and worthy of a special wedding day. They have the perfect amount of chic ornamentation for brides wanting some special details, and they could also work for wedding guests, bridesmaids, and mothers at a beach wedding. More picks below! P.S. Because the summer season is coming to a close, many of these sandals are on sale now at Nordstrom, so it’s a great time to shop for these for next year, and Nordstrom is also launching full access to the Anniversary Sale tomorrow where new fall arrivals are being previewed and are on sale!
