I am going to try and do this too, getting about 25-30 pairs for 90-100 guests, so maybe 50-60? I think I might be overdoing it with 30 lol.

I was thinking 35-40 for my 135 person wedding.

That’s a lot of trips to old navy. They only allow 5 pairs each time.  Honestly I would skip them because all the women I know carry their own flip flops in their purse when they wear heels.

I don’t think it’s very hard to “rally the troops” to get some people close to you to buy 5 pairs, and most stores allow you to buy and go back and buy more. 

I’ve never been to a wedding where people packed flip flops in their clutch/purse, and I have ALWAYS taken advantage of the flip flop basket when available…maybe it’s regional.

My wedding was two weeks ago. We had 40 pairs for 115 guests and have 5 pairs left over. No one really saw them, I had to tell the guests about them. I had them in baskets, with signs at the DJs table????

I was just wondering about this the other day. Did those of you who have gotten flip flops only count women under a certain age? I’m just not sure grandma will need a pair, you know? I was thinking of going down the guest list and counting the women I thought would like them.
