Deciding what shoes to wear to a beachside wedding can be tricky. The sand will make you want to kick off your shoes and to switch to your tsinelas, but you wouldn't want to end up looking underdressed for the occasion. Below, we show you the most sensible yet stylish shoes you can wear to the next beach wedding you'll be attending!
Block heels are your sand-friendly alternative to stilettos. The chunkiness of the heel provides you with a much more stable base, especially when standing on uneven surfaces like the shores.
FN TIP: Look for block heels that come with ankle straps to keep your shoes from slipping off.

Flatforms will give you a boost of height without making you feel like you're wearing heels, thanks to the absence of an arch in the soles. With the thick, elevated platform, they make an interesting, edgy contrast to your formal dress.

If you're alanganin about wearing heels at the beach, especially if you're the type who easily trips, don't think twice about reaching for your flats. Sandals with striking details like embellishments and ruffles can still look as elegant as heels.
