I think that if you go this route, you need to make sure you have enough flip-flops for everyone (at least all the females with a few extras for the males who want to join in). If you have left overs, your guests might want to take them home or you could donate them to charity.

I am also doing flip flops, I’ve seen that you should plan for 25% of your guests to use them, but I think it all depends on “your crowd”.  You know your guests the best….are they the kind who will kick off their shoes and dance the night away?  Or will  they want to be more proper and keep their own shoes on?  I am going a little higher then 25% b/c our families are the crazy/dancing/fun kind and I suspect they’ll kick off their shoes for the flip flops…..

We are inviting 140 guests and I purchased 25 pairs of flip flops. I know that seems a bit low but based on my particular guests and their “dancing habits” I think that would be sufficient.

Thank you for posting – I had this question, too.  Also, where are you all getting your flip flops?  Thanks!!

I bought mine at Michaels and Target.  But I bought them at the end of last summer season so I got them at huge discounts.  I think the ones from Michaels were like .35 cents a piece, I believe they were 70% off!!!!

Thanks for the lead to dollardays.com — I thought these might be OK for my wedding  http://dollardays.com/i925784-wholesale-marc-gold-ladies-flip-flop-6-new-for-2012.html. And last year a friend had these from Dollar Tree at hers: http://www.dollartree.com/ladies-flip-flops/p294374/index.pro. My wedding’s not until Sept so I suppose I could wait for the end of summer sales but I fear I’ll be too busy by then.  If anyone ends up having extras from their spring/summer wedding and wants to sell them, let me know – I’d be happy to buy them from you!

@sn2bmrsmntgmry:  I wish I had thought ahead and checked out Michaels – good job – that’s a great deal!

I had 135 guests and purchased 25 pairs of flip flops.  There were still 5-10 pairs left at the end of the night.  Only younger women will use them, men and older women (especially women wearing stockings) would never consider changing into flip flops at a wedding.
