20 Best Bridal Shoes for Your Beach Wedding

If you purchase an independently reviewed product or service through a link on our website, we may receive an affiliate commission.

From hunting down the perfect venue to the dress and flowers, wedding prep can feel as time-consuming (and stressful) as a full-time job. If you plan to tie the knot seaside, for example, there are so many additional factors to consider, including finding shoes that are chic, sturdy and comfortable for walking down a sandy aisle.

That’s why we scoured the Internet to find the best beach wedding shoes for every type of bride, from classic to boho. Festive flats, practical wedges, block heels or kitten heels are key, as they offer more stability and shouldn’t sink too far into the sand. We only recommend shopping for sky-high stilettos if your seaside ceremony is inside or you’re moving indoors for the reception.

Below is our list of 20 stylish and sand-friendly styles perfect for any beachside wedding.
