how would you feel if your heels sunk into the ground at an event? …and for the bridesmaids imagine battling with standing tall on a sandy ground at your friends beach wedding ceremony? or perhaps an outdoor event on a grassy landscape?
You bet that it is going to be a long day!
So, here goes an experience we had at a beach wedding ceremony we planned in a luxurious hotel at the center of the beautiful Arabian city of Dubai.
It was a really beautiful beach setting that had so much sand on its bank!
Long story short; though we had put up signage’s for the guests reading;
leave your shoes behind and bury your feet in the sand.
What we came to realize during his wedding was that women never joke with the idea of literally “leaving their shoes behind”…
so while reading up, I came across a photo (below) about using Patio-stones as support/elevation for bridesmaids to know exactly where to stand and for the remaining fabulous female guests getting each person a “shoe-guard” made with plastic material to wear at the bottom of their shoe’s heel will avoid them sinking into the sand, missing a step and in some cases falling!
I found it a fantastic idea to share, what do you think?
So people, while planing for your next outdoor event, be sure to try these two tips and we too are surely looking at implementing these great ideas at our next outdoor event!!!
