Thanks for the info.  I was just thinking about this earlier this week.  I was thinking about sneeking peaks at the FIL’s shoe sizes over the holidays.  LOL, how would I explain that getting caught looking inside peoples shoes.

I bought flip-flops from Old Navy for my bridesmaids!  They were a BIG hit!

Great idea! Just curious — what did you do with the “leftover” flip flops that didn’t get used?

Thanks for the post!

I will add to this post my experience!

I had a banquet hall wedding in a hotel! I had 54 guests and I bought 20 pairs of flip flops (other than the fancy ones I bought for me and my bridesmaids). I had 6 pairs left over 4-8’s and 2-9s. All the seven’s were gone (which is disappointing because I am a 7 LOL)

@MapleMoose: Here’s another good use for leftover flip flops.  A lot of missions/shelters need them for their clients to use as “shower shoes”.  I’m sure your local shelter would be glad for the donation.

@PumpkinSpiceChai: That’s what I was thinking, if you had a lot leftover

I work at Old Navy, so my tip for anyone buying flip flops there is to buy them suring the $1 flip flop day (get there at opening!!!) or wait til august when a lot of colors go clearance. They usually keep the basic colors year-round, but the patterned flip flops and a few colors will go down in price after the fall stuff starts to come out.

I just ordered 30 pairs of flip flops from old navy for $1.49 each, with a 30% off coupon code and free shipping. I am excited to see people’s reaction to them! (Our wedding is in a really small town and I’m pretty sure they don’t read wedding blogs! hahah)

@YellowBee3: They are old navy flip flops that I embellished myself! I think they turned out pretty well!

Our “dancin’ shoes” went like hotcakes, they were gone even before we arrived at the venue!
