Lucky brides-to-be who are having their special day on the beach are faced with the problem of what wedding shoes to wear. Ideas of satin heeled shoes or delicate strapped kitten heels, towering heels or just plain court shoes can be dismissed as there is a new funky footwear perfect for your tootsies.

It is always said to choose your shoe before your dress incase you need to make arrangements or alterations yet this wouldn’t be needed if you didn’t wear any shoes! These delightful items are a mixture of contemporary, bohemian and soulful style. They come in an array of styles to suit your wedding dress and are available in a variety of colours.

This boho style is one that is catapulting with the brides to be, the barefoot sandals are definitely a winner (even if your not at a beach).  They will make any feet look graceful and delicate (especially matched with a pedi) and will have your guests wishing they were wearing them too!!

Whether you want small intricate beads, thin chains, pearls, diamonds, gems or jewels, appliqué flowers, charms and rhinestones, french lace, cloth, string tied or chained, colour or no colour there is an abundance of choice to be able to suit your very own wedding style.

The barefoot sandals even come in different lengths, you can choose if you want the main part of your foot covered, have the beads stop at your ankle or the design could lead to a few inches above your ankle, each giving a fabulous style. There are some with the ribbon (used for tying it together) being entwined around the lower part of the brides legs, creating a subtle sexy look.

Creative brides can even design and style their own creation by adding charms to their chains, they would need to be delicate and lightweight yet it would add an authenticity and uniqueness plus a little sentimentality. As the sandals are basically jewelry they would be easy to store as a keepsake.

They are available in a variety of colours with blue being a particular popular colour. Many brides-to-be have become braver with their option of their ‘something blue’ and have taken to having their shoes or ‘barefoot sandals’ to be their blue item. The style is gorgeous and is a real trend setter! Something I think we will see more often in future weddings!

These barefoot wedding sandals are leaving brides to be wearing fancy footwear with no thought or worry of tripping, slipping or catching their dress on their shoes. These will be perfect to walk in on the sand as they only cover the top part of the foot and ankle leaving the sole of the foot free to gracefully walk over the sand.

Are you a brave bride-to-be??

  • Hi Matthew, Mauro and Petra, Just wanted to say Thank You for the amazing work you did with Ramis and Adriels wedding. I wrote with Rami a bit in the last days and he said at least a couple of times that it was perfect :) Thank you also for handling all print-related stuff and going the extra mile with the decoration. Wish I could have been there to see it. Really happy you made them happy! :) Thank you & many greetings from Berlin, Natalie

  • Firstly, I just wanted to say how lovely it was meeting you, Mauro and the rest of your team and to thank you. Both Andre and I were so impressed with everything you did for Annez and Gio's beautiful wedding on the Salt Pans in Gozo - every detail was taken care of so thoughtfully and we were absolutely blown away by the venue, and of course how it was setup and dressed for their wedding day! It was simply breath-taking and that light (honestly, Andre and I could not get enough of it, which you may have noticed!!). You and your team took such good care of Annez, Gio and the wedding party and nothing was too much trouble. I especially liked your approach to the bride as its very similar to my own (that you are present and in the background, never rushing or stressing the bride or the bridal party). And thank you also for driving me to the Salt Pans - it certainly made it less stressful for me and I really appreciate that! As as for the venue at night - now that really had the 'wow' factor - absolutely magical, both for the guests and the lenses on our cameras :-)

  • Excellent. Nothing but Praise for Petra, Mauro and all the team at I DO KNOT. We celebrated our ruby wedding anniversary in Malta and I DO KNOT arranged everything for us and our 18 guests from Ireland and England. Such hard work and professionalism provided us with a unique 're proposal event' full church service, hotel, entertainment events etc. The I DO KNOT team were there for us, for all the whole 2 weeks and made it such a wonderful event that will never be forgot by the whole party. Feel free to ask them for more details of our functions they provided and you will see exactly how good they are and what such nice people they are and clearly a credit to the people of Malta. They deserve the awards they have achieved so far and Im sure there will be many more.

  • I would recommend Petra and her "I Do Knot" team to everyone! As getting married in Malta was a really last minute decision, Petra was super fast in providing us with best options and deals! I reached out to few companies, but Petra was outstanding and stood out right away! Could not be more thankful. And this comes from a wedding planner herself. If I trusted our day to her, anyone can!
