Is it tacky to do so?
My FI is only a couple of inches taller than me and I really dislike flats on me. I have looked and looked for cute flat sandals with flowers on them and found some but one of them just didn’t fit right and the other 2 were pretty pricey and Chineese knockoffs that I would have to order from well, China LOL.
I live in AZ and pretty much wear flip flops year round anyways so I figured what the heck!
I have settled on these.

At my 2nd wedding (yes I am working on my third) I wore platform flip flops and loved them. Peopl thought they were adorable as well. I say go for it!

Married Bee’s~ How often do people see your feet when you are wearing a floor length gown?

I put flip flops on for the reception – my feet had had enough of the heels by that point in the day! The only thing I would caution you about with wearing them for the ceremony is to make sure they don’t make a loud flip/flop noise as you walk. That would totally take away from the moment to hear someone come flip flopping down the aisle. At a reception, it doesn’t matter at all as it’s loud, but in a quiet ceremony, it might be noticeable.
To answer your question, no one really saw my feet unless I picked up my dress. I came down stairs to enter the ceremony area so I held part of my dress in my hand, thereby giving everyone a view of my shoes, but I’m pretty sure that was it.

@Ree723: Good advise. Thanks. I’ll practice walking in them to see if they make the sound. 🙂

I am wearing heels for the ceremony, but flip flops for the reception. My FI is about 9 inches taller than me, so I should probably wear heels all night, but I’d rather be comfortable.
