For a beautiful summer beach wedding, there’s nothing better than inviting guests to put their feet in the sand and enjoy your ceremony. However, guests aren’t going to want to go strolling through the sand with their expensive heels or dress shoes. This is why a shoe valet is the perfect addition to any beach wedding. It doesn’t have to be expensive, and in fact, you can create an amazing shoe valet with just a couple of components. Here’s how to create one!

Shoe Valet Using a Cabinet or Shelf
Any sort of cabinet or shelf can be quickly transformed into an amazing shoe valet for a beach wedding. Simply make sure there is adequate space for guests to place their shoes on the cabinet or shelf. A big basket of flip flops in a variety of sizes should be placed on or next to the cabinet, and a fun sign can be created with a canvas or a chalkboard, letting guests know to trade their shoes in for a pair of nifty flip flops that they can walk on the sand with. Be sure the cabinet or shelf is sturdy and light enough to move to your ceremony venue with ease.
Ideas: If you don’t have a small cabinet or shelf on hand to use, spend some time searching through flea markets or garage sales. You can easily find an inexpensive piece that will work perfectly with a little cleaning and maybe some spray-painting. It’s a DIY that is perfect for everyone, even if you’re not that crafty!

A Simple Sign
You don’t need anything fancy to create the perfect shoe valet for a beach wedding. In fact, a simple sign can be perfect when stuck in the sand where there’s enough space for guests to park their shoes. We love the one above, which features a cute little rhyme, but you can make your sign say whatever you’d like. You can also add decorative elements to your sign that match your beach theme, from a starfish garland to flowers.
