    First of all, I love that dress! So gorgeous. Second, I’d go for something a little more formal. The dress seems really formal and it’d be weird to have such a casual shoe with it, imo.

    The flip flops are totally cute BUT I would be incredibly uncomfortable if someone asked me to wear those as a bridesmaid in a Catholic church. For me, they are way too casual. I would wear them at the end of the reception when my feet started to hurt. Also, I loooove the bridesmaid dresses, so pretty!

    Every bridesmaid I have ever known has changed into flip flops after the wedding. Go formal for the church and let them change. There are cute formal options out there; no one expects your 5 mo pregnant bridesmaid in a pair of sky high Loubs or anything! But flip flops say more “heading down to the beach for a margarita, wanna come?” than “pair me with a beautiful, fancy Jim Hjelm bridesmaid dress” to me.

    Since it’s a long dress, I would just leave it up to them to pick the shoes they will be most comfortable in.  I actually really dislike flipflops (the thing between your toes tends to be really uncomfortable for me, and they usually don’t give you any arch support).  By letting them pick what they want to wear, they can also wear shoes that are already broken in, which will be even more comfortable.

    Those sandals are super cute, but I think that I tried them on recently and they weren’t very comfortable.  I would recommend that you get something a little more formal and then maybe you could buy other flip-flops (like those at Old Navy).  See pic below:
