What are people’s thoughts on flip flops for an outdoor summer wedding…for the bridesmaids? I’m not talking about rubber or beach sandals, but a little nicer. My mother is fully against it, stating that the dresses are too formal (silk faille knee-length cap-sleeve dress). I’m a laid back bride who really wouldn’t mind going barefoot to tell you the truth. What do people think?

The sandals are cute! Do you have a picture of the dress?

Allowing your bridesmaids to relax is a nice thing to do. We’re also offering to our guests.

The bridesmaid dress is from Priscilla of Boston (PB313) in Dandelion. I can’t seem to copy the picture from the website so I have attached the link. http://www.priscillaofboston.com/dress_detail.jsp?gid=230&sfid=51007&f’ defer=’defer=

I think they would look great together. Plus be way comfortable.

I think it would look very cute together…and comfortable for your bridesmaids. I’d say go for it!

do it! I had an outdoor beach wedding and the girls had J. Crew dresses and wore white flip flops. It looked so cute!

I’m allowing my MOH/SIL to wear flips too. I think these days there are so many cute flips or thong sandals that anything can go.

My girls have the option to change into flip flops — or sneakers, or really whatever makes them most comfortable — after getting introduced at the reception. The flip flops you posted are super cute!

I love your Bridesmaid or Best Man dress. I think you can pull it off outdoors. I bought my girls more casual flip flop than the ones you posted s to change into after the ceremony.

I don’t think it’s going to matter! It’s so nice of you to want it casual and comfy for them!

I’m all for wearing sandals for an outdoor wedding! I did!! My girls wore the Bright orange sandals from Target with brown satin tea length dresses with an orange ribbon around their waste and I wore the silver sandals with my dress and I love them! best part is that I can wear them again (like at work today 😀 )

i think you can totally go for flip flops or in your case sandals.. I am thinking of having my girls in jack rogers since teh wedding is going to be outside, on a hill and in the grass… not great for heels!

Sorry,but I think your Mom is right. Dress is too nice for thongs or flipflops. A sandal like the ones on the website that the model is wearing,but maybe lower, would look much better.
My daughter’s Bridesmaid or Best Man wore pretty silver sandals for ceremony and pictures and matching crystal flipflops for the reception.

I like it. I think you should go for it. It’s YOUR wedding. 🙂 You’re being nice to your BMs. Who cares what everyone else thinks?
