@Mimoza:  Thanks, ya as long as you can find a good deal then I think it’s totally worth it!

I know Old Navy runs good deals on their flip flops from time to time.

Good luck ladies 🙂

We did flip flops and they were a huge hit. A friend of mine was just wearing her pair again the other day at the beach.

We got ours from Old Navy and the bonus is you can return any unused pairs after the wedding so you don’t waste any money. I just saved the plastic wrapping they came in (ordered online).

It’s a cute idea, yes, but I don’t think it’s worth it! I’ve never been to a wedding where there was a change of shoes offered, but I have no problems with going barefoot if my feet hurt!! Save your money!

I am also doing flip flops…. got a bunch on sale online at christmas time and then my mom just grabbed a bunch bc Kmart of something had them 2/$3

For like $50ish we gave people an option….and if they don’t get used then just either donate to charity or bring up to our summer house for guests up there. 


I have seen many broken glasses on the dance floor and I feel like at least flip flops give some protection from a little piece of glass that might get missed when they sweep it up.Obviously I can’t anticipate every size foot but I just got like 2-3 of sizes 5, 6,10 and 11 and then like 6 each of 7,8 and 9. My wedding is in October but its inside so I don’t think its a big issue that its too “summery”


My only suggestion is to make sure they are in a spot that is obvious – at one wedding I was at they had them up front by the band and since it was dark no one could see till the house lights came on after the wedding was over…. I think sticking them in the ladies room w the bathroom basket is smart (that is where mine will be)

I think it’s cute but kind of a waste of money. People are picky about their shoes. In thinking about my wedding guests, I can say that the older, more formal guests wouldn’t ever change their shoes, and the younger guests would probably be more comfortable going barefoot. I, for example, wear a size 11 or 12 shoe, so I wouldn’t even bother picking up a pair of shoes from a basket like this — I know they wouldn’t fit! I’d put the money elsewhere.
