    Adding a poll will get you more opinions. I was going too go with flip flops b/c those rolled shapes don’t sound comfortable, but they are cute, and don’t seem to be an issue. More formal looking.

    I mean, I personally would ABSOLUTELY go for a pair of those! I am not a flip flop person, I never wear them unless I’m actually at the beach or by the pool (I’m weird. I also don’t like Swedish Fish. I might not be a real human..)

    I think they would get used again by the women at other weddings or formal events too!

    The good thing about flip flops is that you have a little more sizing flexibility. Someone can probably fit a size up or a size down in flip flops for the evening, since they are open. With these shoes, I think you’d have more like a half size of flexibility, although I haven’t seen them in person.

    How are you going to determine how many of what size to order?

    Voted for the flats just because its different! Although I do wear flip flops around the house all the time. And unlike @Sunnyday278:  I love swedish fish.

    Whoa. Those cinderollies are $20 a pair! That’s pretty high. I know walmart carries a brand that are much cheaper, let me see if I can dig them up!

    EDIT : They are Dr. Scholl’s fast flats and they cost about $9.97 a pair, and they come in one of those cute bags, too. They are just folded not rolled.

    I think if its within your budget, these are super cute & comfy, I’ve bought a few pairs for work when I work very long shifts.

    Flip flops would be more cost effective, and I’ve seen plenty of those at weddings.

    $6 a pair isn’t too bad then, I def wouldn’t pay the full 20!

    @andrea.kuchinski:  I find the roll flats so uncomfortable. They’re super FLAT with zero arch support and if they’re a smidge too small, you’ll get blisters all along the back of the heel/ankle…

    I just worry that you will end up with leftover shoes, and you’ll have wasted money. As a PP said, it’ll be hard to get the sizing right. I wouldn’t take a pair at all because I’m 5’10 and have big feet, but most of your guests will probably fit in the small-medium -large range. I’m talking more about the distribution of sizes. 

    Also when I go to an event, I know I’m going to be wearing my shoes all night, and I plan accordingly. I guess I’m saying it’s a nice thought, but as a guest I’d rather have some other kind of gift, or just have you guys save your money.

    I don’t mean to be a naysayer because they are definitely cute. Maybe I’m just bitter because I know none of them would fit me. 🙂
