What Shoes Do I Wear To A Beach Wedding?

Looking for the best men's sandals to wear to a wedding? At Spendless Shoes, we offer so many great styles to choose from that it can be hard to pick. So, we thought we could talk you through some of our favourite kinds today. Whether you are a groom, best man, groomsman, friend, or relative, we have the shoes for you!

The quick breakdown of men's sandals

Our first look for you has got to be men's sandals with enclosed toes. These come with a classic gladiator look and feel. Our men's sandals are sturdy, breathable, relaxed, practical, and an excellent starting option. Their treads are fit for some weird and wonderful terrain, which means these men's sandals will have an easy time on the sand.

Next are some sartorial slides. You may also recognise them as Birkenstock-style men's sandals. These are slip-on shoes with thick bands across the top of the feet. At Spendless, we have a buckled or velcro option. These double up as the ideal everyday wear during the hot summer, so you can easily reuse them.

Finally, we have your standard thongs. These men's sandals have the classic toe bar of a PVC thong, but comfortable fabric bands for added style. As a style to wear on the sand, you could not make things easier for yourself than by getting some of these men's sandals.


If you want to roll up to the wedding in the latest men's sandals, then loafers are a sharp option. These men's sandals are uniquely suited to a ceremony that takes place on a beach, as you can wear them without socks. As a general rule, socks and sand rarely mix. While picking a practical set of men's sandals is best for beach weddings, even if you end up with something partially enclosed, it is best to forgo socks. No one is going to find your exposed ankles scandalous, we promise.

Now, what sort of loafers can you expect to find with our men's sandals? Typically, you will see slip-on shoes with elastic side gussets. These are simple shoes that you can slip on and off at your leisure, which is a fantastic way to keep up with the pace of a wedding. The last thing you want is to get held up while you do or undo your shoes, after all. Typically, these styles also come in navy, tan and black. These are classic colours for men's sandals and wedding shoes alike, so you are covered from an aesthetic aspect too.

Boat shoes

Stay with us for a moment. Boat shoes may seem like an odd choice for wedding attire, but at Spendless Shoes, we offer a wide range of men's sandals for our customers which get changed and revitalised each season. Depending on what is on trend or not, the kind we recommend for specific events and special occasions can vary. This processes pretty much sets the example for boat shoes in 2018.

As the name suggests, these men's sandals made their name in the boat and by the ocean. When it comes to a beach wedding, these are the perfect pair for any guy. All of our men's sandals from this category have a laidback vibe and contemporary finish. Plus, they can stand walking through the sand and surf. Match these with some smart casual wear, and you will seem relaxed, confident, and ready for the big day. With cool laces and stitched details, boat shoes and men's sandals are natural style statements.
