I LIVE in flip flops, despite living in Maine. I just love them. I wear them until it snows and then at the first signs of spring- BAM- their on. Give me a pair of tevas and I’m a happy girl. For the wedding feel torn. I’d love to wear cute heels for the ceremony and pics, but then put on some flip flops for the reception. Do you think this will cause a big problem with the hemline of the dress?? I know the bottom will get dirty, but I don’t want people to be stepping on it all night. Any advice?

Wear a kitten heel. It’s very popular right now but not very tall and won’t cause your dress to drag so much when you switch to flip flops.

@julia924: Could you get some platform flip-flops the same height as your heels?
I’m a Maine bride too (although not from Maine).
Looks like we are getting married on the same day in the same state!

@julies1949: Wow your name is so close to OP at first I thought you were the same person responding to yourself in third person. lol
I’ve also heard of doing a mulitple point bustle where you can have it bustled one lenght for heels and then bustle it a little more when you put flips on. This is what I plan on doing, but I don’t know what it’s actually called.

@floridabride12:I didn’t actually notice the similarity until you pointed it out! Good eye.

The alterations woman at DB said they didn’t recommend changing the height because if you hem the dress for the heels, it’ll drag in the flip flops. If you hem it for the flip flops, that would work, but you’ll see your ankles during the ceremony. I thought it was common to change like this, but I dunno. The couple women I asked just said when they stayed in their heels as long as they could and when they changed into flip flops they just had to lift their skirt whenever they moved. 😛

I plan on wearing 3 inch heals and changing to 2 inch wedge flip flops at some point. I am having my dress altered for the heals and will just deal with it being a little long with the flip flops.

I changed heel heights and FH stepped on my dress and tore it. Its an easy fix because it was a ruffle that tore at the seam, and the hem is very dirty! It should come clean, but the dry cleaners are making no promises at the moment….
so moral of the story. Yes, if its too long you run the risk of it not coming clean and of damage being done to it that may or may not be fixable.

Why don’t you wear some dressy flip-flop style kitten heels? I wore a pair for my prom and they were really comfortable and super cute!

@west.coast.blonde: OH, those second ones are super cute! I can’t quite make out what the label says, where are they from?
