Are you having a beach wedding? If so, you might be able to get away with these.

Honestly, flip flops and dancing don’t seem like a good idea… add the wedge to it, you have a recipe for a broken ankle!

@cestvrai:  I wore wedged flip flops after the ceremony. I was very comfortable. No problems dancing. I wear this type of shoe all the time in the summer, so for me, they were perfect. 

Seriously, in my opinion, no one cared about my shoe choices. I spent $ 7.00 on a pair of shoes, on clearance,  for my wedding shoes! They were perfect for me. 

I saved money on the “wedding flip flops” by blinging them out myself. I bought a pair from a local store, wrapped the tops in a white satin ribbon and added a pretty bow I made out of tulle and a cute pink flower. They probably cost me $10.00.

Flip flops with wedges aren’t a big deal to me because I wear them often.. I find them pretty comfortable, but in the summer I wear flip flops ALL THE TIME.

If you are used to wearing them, dancing in them isn’t a huge deal, and unless you’re doing some super crazy dance moves.. they won’t fly off.

You may be wanting some height and in that case I don’t think wedge flip flops are bad. I actually think they are plenty cute and most likely no one will see them anyway. But if you’re concerned with dancing safely, I think flip flops with the back little buckle straps are cute!

If you get a pair that are snug, they should be fine. Wedge flip flops are super comfortable. I used to wear them all the time in high school.

@cestvrai:  The funny thing is I wear flip flops all the time… I LOVE THEM… I still do sometimes end up falling out of them just while walking. I am clumsy, though 😀

I wore regular flip flops and wish I had gotten some with some height as I stepped all over my dress and tripped on it all night after taking my shoes off. Doesn’t hurt to try them out!

@cestvrai:  My sister wore platform Rocket Dog flip flops at her reception.  Her feet were about the only thing that were still okay by the end of the night – poor thing had a horrendously heavy gown at an outdoor event in the middle of a heat wave.
