I think it’s fine as long as your dress is to the floor, so that they aren’t blatantly obvious to everyone.   They look cute and comfortable.

I’m getting these to change into at the reception if my feet start hurting!  I think they’re really cute!

i’m not a fan because i really feel your wedding day is a special, once in a life time occasion and there are a multitude of ways to be comfy that do not include clunky heeled plastic flip flops.  what about beautiful jeweled or embellished sandals?…jmo

that’s just me…every one has different likes and dislikes.  i think you should feel beautiful and relaxed on that day and wear what ever u feel best in.

My issue against flip flops is mainly the noise. The flip-flop-flip-flop down the aisle sound is not always super appropriate. :p

i have a friend who did flip flops for her wedding… and to be honest, the idea in my head sounds kinda tacky, but i saw her pictures and you couldn’t tell at all!  i think as long as it’s not showing blatently it’s just a little fun something that makes the wedding a bit more “you”…

I think I’m going to do flip flops, but we’re getting married on a beach in Mexico so I don’t think heels would work. Fiance will wear flip flops so I figure, why not? I do think I’ll get fuschia to match my bouquet.

I second the too casual. I think you sould seek out some flat sandals with roses on and go with those instead. Wedding is once in a lifetime.

I wore flip flops!  I had too because my husband is BARELY taller than me so flip flops were as flat as I could find!  Plus they were super comfortable and now I wear them all the time.  But my dress went to the floor so no one could see them, and the wedding was outside – there’s less flopping I feel like when you’re on grass.

I think a flip flop is too casual for a wedding (especially chunky plastic/rubber ones) and the “flip-flop-flip-flop” noise they make is you walk is inappropriate in my mind for the event.  Even if you typically can’t se the shoes under the dress there are times they’ll be in view as you walk / take steps or if you need to hold up your dress for any reason (which you will on multiple occasions throughout the evening).

What about something like one of the following that still gives you the casual comfort feel you are going for with a shoe that is more appropriate for the occasion?

Weddings are an amazing time for people to come together and celebrate a union between 2 people. And that is what it is…amazing. You’re walking towards your future, and while you should definitly be able to do it comfortably there are ways to do it that won’t take away from you on that day.

Flip-flops…you can wear them anytime of any day of any month that you want to. Like some fo the other bees have posted there are many ways to be comfortable on your wedding day without sacraficing the beauty of you or your dress with flip-flops. It is a personal choice and in the end don’t listen to any of us and do whatever the hell you want!! You’re the bride and this is your wedding!!! Think about how you’ll feel that day, how you want to feel, what you’ll look back on in photos. If you feel like you’re going to have to hide your feet, that’s not how your wedding day should feel.

You’re going to be the center of attention, and I want you to be able to stand infront of all your family and friends feeling confident, sexy, and at peace. Whatever shoe you decide is right for YOU is the one. You’ll just know. Probably the same feeling you had when you found your wedding gown.

Update us all on your choice once you make it!! And remember, this doesn’t have to be stressful. Have fun and enjoy these little decisions. You only get to make them once. And if you do decide to buy a more expensive shoe it will be an investment that will bring you a lot of joy. It did for me.
