    I voted Nay but I don’t think it’s trashy if you go that route; just personal preference.  It is definitely better than seeing women dancing/walking all over without their shoes on, though!  :-p

    Flip flops are not comfortable to dance in. I cannot wear “standard” flip flops (like the ones you posted a picture of) because of the solid strap. I have a rigid webbing on my right foot due to a foot injury and that type of flip flop causes me blisters there.

    So, I wouldn’t use them.

    I’d just suggest people bring flats or a comfortable pair of sneakers to change into and give people a place to put their shoes for the evening.

    Eh, I’m flat wearing girl usually but unless I am in somewhere super gross I have no issues taking off my shoes, flip flop don’t do diddly to keep feet cleaner to me.So I vote no.

    I asked fiance about this and he said people should think ahead and bring their own shoes.  That being said if you really want to do it I saw on here that someone else posted that flip flops were $1.06 right now today only on the old navy website!

    I vote yes.  The bride did this at a formal wedding I went to a little over a year ago and it was extremely popular.  You have to be prepared for what happened with her, though, in that there are some (wonderful, I think!) photos of people dancing in neon flip-flops.

    I like the idea of providing comfortable shoes for dancing.  However, I’ve never really understood using flip flops for this purpose.  They aren’t all that comfortable, they can’t be worn with hose, and they don’t stay on well.

    One bride I saw here recently used Cinderollies, which look elegant.  They are $6 a pair if you buy at least 50.

    We used a less expensive but less elegant alternative:  Chinese cotton Mary Janes.  We got some of them from the “Defected White Cotton Mary Janes” at China Direct Store and others from a classified ad by The People’s Seller

    I usually plan ahead and bring my own flip flops or flats to change into. But if I didn’t, I would really appreciate this!

    @2dBride:  This. I really hate the kind of flip flops posted. I can’t wear them.

    @2dBride:  I agree with this. 

    I voted Nay because the only thing I can imagine being less comfortable to dance in than my fancy shoes would be flip-flops. I absolutely can’t tolerate them the second I have to take a step in them. If you really want to provide favors for your ladies’ feet, I’d go the cheap flats route. The sizing will be more difficult with those, but I just really hate flip flops….

    I say yay. It goes with the beachy theme and I think its a nice gesture. Personally I don’t know too many people who wear panty hose besides like my grandmoms. So I wouldn’t worry about that. But that’s just me.

    @Pinkmoon:  Yea, if I am going to a wedding I usually assume there will be dancing and wear shoes that I can dance in. No need for flip flops here!
