Ask Marsha-Ann: Know your Destination Wedding Shoes!
Q: “Shoes? Help! What types of shoes are best for a destination wedding? Heels just seem impractical. Sandals, Wedges, Espadrilles? The dress is (potentially) a short “fit and flare look.” – Katrina
A: “Hello there Katrina,
I am celebrating you today for three special reasons. First of all, congratulations on your wedding, secondly, congratulations on choosing Sandals for your destination wedding and a special congrats on being a shoe diva (like me)!
So, let’s talk shoes! I imagine that you will want to explore the options of having your ceremony and reception in the beautiful settings of either the lush gardens or the sandy beach of Antigua. Of course you can also enjoy the best of both worlds – ceremony by the beach with reception nestled in the gardens or vice versa. You will need shoes that you can wear comfortably in both elements.
I suggest that for your ceremony, if you desire to have a little height, wedges would certainly work well for that. A sturdy yet cute wedge heel will allow you to navigate comfortably on sand or on grass without sinking, while still being fashionable. I also suggest that you use an aisle runner which will allow you to float & gloat in your preferred shoe for the ceremony.

You can surely, kick those wedges off and go low with a pair of gorgeous looking sandals for your reception and photography session. There are tons of amazing jazzy sandals options that are bedazzled with crystals and various accessories to complement your (potential) tea-length wedding gown.
So, I say, loose the 4 inch spikes and go for your wedges and sandals. After all, it is your day for glitz and glamour from head to toe!
We can’t wait to celebrate every element of your dream day with you! Also, congratulations on your resort choice – Sandals Antigua awarded “Most Romantic Resort of 2012” at the World Travel Awards. I know you’ll enjoy it!”
