Yes. Heh and on a somewhat unrelated, but related note, my brother got married this summer and changed into flip flops for his reception. ….he got married no where near a beach!

Of course! As long as they are nice flip flops I think it is a great idea!

Yes definitely ok for a beach wedding… he can even go barefoot and no one will blink an eye.  Wink

Definitely! We’re getting married on the beach and both plan on going the ‘nice’ flip flop route 🙂 I’d hate to wear ‘real’ shoes on a beach!

Absolutely.  My partner really wanted to get married in boardshorts and flip flops, but when we decided to go a little upscale on the wedding he wore the outfit for the rehearsal!

absolutely!  It’s totally appropriate (and so much better than getting sand in your shoes!)

I don’t see why not. They’re more appropriate for walking on sand than regular dress shoes. Most people wouldn’t bat an eye at them if they even notice in the first place.

yes! we both got nice flip flop/sandals to wear at the wedding but we may go barefoot for the ceremony. and he keeps trying to say he is wearing gym shorts and a white tee!

I think it is fine.  You could do boat shoes without socks, too, if you want something a little dressier.

of course, flip flops were made for the beach… I think barefoot would be even better though!
