I am thinking about providing flip flops for our wedding guests at our reception. I have never been to a wedding with them but I have heard of it and thought it was nice. Does anyone have any input on this?
Also, I am having a hard time finding any that are cheap. I was hoping to get them for $1 or less. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!

I’d skip it. The baskets look cute but they are totally unnecessary. These are adults. They can dress themselves. Some people will just take off their shoes and dance barefoot and that’s not a problem. I actually don’t like dancing in flop flops because it’s easy for others to step on them on a crowded dance floor. And they’re not cheap. And you have to worry about different sizes. And what are you going to do with them after the wedding?

If you have room in your budget, I think many people definitely appreciate bathroom baskets that include flip flops — particularly for longer receptions. But definitely don’t pull money from somewhere else to make it work.
Old Navy has a sale a couple times a year where they sell flip flops for $1. You can buy bulk flip flops from Amazon but they’re a little more expensive than $1/pair.

@DarciLynn4: if your wedding date on here is right, you can always wait and get them at Old Navy’s $1 sale next spring (usually towards end of June)

Am I the only one who thinks it’s so uncomfortable and awkward to dance in flip flops?!

I am doing the same thing, I’m waiting for them to go on sale at old nancy for $1. My mom just went to a wedding, she broke her shoes in before but her feet were still killing her. it kept her from dancing because she didn’t want to take her shoes off. I think it’s nice to be there for people who want to wear them. I personally can dance in flip flops, it’s a lot easiee then heels in my opinion. And I don’t always think to bring flats with me when I go out.

I bought mine at Old Navy in June for $1 each (in my wedding colours!) I love love love when weddings have flip flops! They have a limit of 5, but they will ring you in 5 pairs at a time 🙂 I went crazy and bought 40 pairs all in different sizes – I’ll donate any that are left over to the Goodwill. One tip though, make sure you put them somewhere that people see them and include a sign so people know they can take them. I was at a wedding last week that had a GIANT bucket (I’d say close to 100 pairs), but they stuck it in a dark corner with no sign so no one knew they were there.

@DarciLynn4: I actually thought about doing that but I can’t dance in a pair of flips flops. I’m not sure if other people at the wedding could either. The floor was clean and not crowded, so most people took off their shoes to dance, including me.

@jackieee: No, I can’t dance in them.
