I’ve always wanted to have a basket of flip flops for guests to wear when dancing – I know I need a break from my heels by the end of the night! – but I was wondering if it’d be worth it for us. we’re having 3 hours of dancing in a wine cellar. do you think its still worth doing, or is this not long enough for women to get sick of their heels?
also, where would a good place to buy them be? I’ve seen Old Navy, Hobby Lobby and Target mentioned.

When is your event? If it starts at 4pm, dinner starts at 6, and dancing is 8-11pm, I would DEFINITELY do the basket!
But if your ceremony is at 7pm and it’s followed by a cocktail and dancing reception from 7:30-10:30pm, I probably wouldn’t bother!

@BrandNewBride: ceremony starts at 4:30, coctail hour 5-6, dinner 6-7, dancing until 10. that’s what I was thinking too…

I’d appreciate it–but I’ve also gotten pretty good about always bringing those foldable fast flats w/ me whenever I’m in heels for an evening event. The cheapest one’s I’ve seen have been at Old Navy.

I’m very much thinking about doing this as well, as our ceremony begins at 3 pm.. [so guests will have been in there shoes for at least 2 hours by this point!], and doesn’t end until 11:30 pm.

I think it’s an adorable idea and wanted to do it, too. But sadly, I’ve been to many weddings with one and most NEVER get touched. I think it’s a waste of money. Most guests (at least that I’ve seen) bring a pair of flats to change into.

@baileyjosephine: I think they’re kind of a waste of money. For starters, most people prepare for such a thing, and I know I personally don’t wear a shoe unless it is comfortable and I am confident wearing them for long periods of time. Also, I would hate for the rest of my pictures to have everyone on the dance floor in their nice clothes and then see that they’re all in flip flops. Especially men.. but I REALLY don’t like feet or men in flip flops or flip flop season in general, so take this with a grain of salt.. haha

MrsPHopefully I’d appreciate it too, and never seen it at a wedding that I’ve been to! I might wait till $1 Day at ON to get ours.
queenjena oh wow, thank you so much!! those shoes look super nice – they can double as a wedding favor!
jenilynevette I’m sure your guests would love it! are you having a Halloween wedding? that’s so cool:)
MsMonkey frommisstomrs. that’s what I’m worried about too… I guess I can always return them? (is that weird?) or donate them.
