    I’m going to be honest here. I hate taking off my shoes and rarely do so, especially in a strange place. If I was a wedding guest and presumably wearing nice or expensive shoes and was told to take them off, I’d be really uncomfortable. So I’d want to know in advance on the invitation I guess.

    although im confused on why people would choose such expensive tiles for flooring if they dont want people to walk on it IF i was a guest i would be surprised but would think ok, lets get with the program, its not a big deal and take them off but i know people like my Mother-In-Law would be confused (shes older, would be wearing stockings)

    but… what happens with the shoes? am i suppose to carry them? leave them somewhere as im not a fan of leaving my very expensive shoes in a pile so they can get lost

    is the floor slippery?  can the men walk in their socks?

    edit: oh, can you rent carpeting for the aisles for the wedding??

    ah!  that makes sense, i was thinking of some mosaic tile made by virgins on the full moon of february ๐Ÿ™‚

    i think slippers would be a great touch – or people like me would happily bring my own socks if im told beforehand

    what about slippers in a small shoe bag (you can sew this up very easily) so people can keep their shoes with them if they wanted to???
