Sparkly Trend: Flat summer sandals for weddings
If the thought of traipsing around wedding receptions in your sky-high heels makes your feet begin to ache, fear not. One of the latest wedding style trends to emerge this year is flat summer sandals for wedding outfits.
Wondering how you can incorporate the comfortable footwear trend into your own wedding ensemble? Whether you’re a guest or a bride, we’ve provided some simple tips below!
If you’re lucky enough to be attending a beach ceremony, followed by an equally-as-summery reception, then flat sandals are the perfect footwear choice. After all, wearing stiletto heels on the beach can only result in discomfort (not to mention constantly sinking into the sand!).
To keep your look still feeling formal, pair gold metallic sandals (such as our Goldie) in a gorgeous shade of platinum, rose gold, or silver with a bohemian-inspired dress. Think kaftan-inspired sleeves or even the popular wrap-dress style that is everywhere at the moment. Dresses in beachy hues of blue, turquoise, or yellow are also sure to suit your flat summer sandals perfectly.

If you’re attending a wedding in a more traditional space, such as a church ceremony followed by a restaurant-style reception (for example), then you can still keep your ensemble glamorous – no heels required! You can even purchase flat Swarovski crystal-embellished sandals (like our Moondancer). Now that’s elegant!
We’d recommend pairing your sparkly sandals with a dress containing crystal embellishments, sequins, or glitter of the same hue. This will transform an otherwise simple wedding guest outfit into a fabulous and formal ensemble.
Dress for Your Height
We understand that the more vertically-challenged (a.k.a shorter) women may be hesitant to embrace the flat summer sandals trend at weddings, but they can truly be worn by everyone – no matter what your height is.
Pairing sandals with a knee-length (or shorter) dress will look flattering on shorter statures, as having a bit of leg on-show creates the illusion of greater height. Taller girls, on the other hand, can get away with pairing their sandals with longer, or even floor-length dresses, as their already-long legs create a sense of balance.
Tips for Brides
We understand you might already have the perfect pair of heels picked out for your wedding, but why not consider slipping some flat summer sandals in your bag to wear at the reception? They’re so much more comfortable for when you want to carve-up the dance floor after all of the formalities!
