    I wore white fancy wedges to the ceremony. Right when we walked in to the reception, I had my sister get me a pair of flip flops (we had a fliop flop basket). I wore a ballgown with a hoopskirt so you couldnt even tell that I was wearing them. I was super comfortable all night.

    I don’t think there could be any cons!

    HaHa…sounds like my daughter. Her original wedding was supposed to be on the beach, so she got beaded flip flops to pick up the champagne color of nher dress. When plans changed to a ballroom wedding, she still insisted on wearing the flops! She was comfy all night, but it did rain both before and after her outdoor ceremony, so her feet got a bit messy in the process.

    Im having a seaside wedding which is a little different but myself along with the entire bridal party are wearring birkenstocks. Flip flops to me for more than 2 hours are extremely painful however. In my opinion wear what you want and be proud of it and no one will mind.

    I didn’t but I’m not against the concept. I wore extremely comfy flats on my day. I’m just not really a flip flop person–they hurt my toes.

    I did wear heals for the first look & ceremony, but after standing in one place for 2o mins, I had to rip them off. You can’t tell from this pic, but my friend had decorated them with lace & rinestones.

    I voted no but I considered it. I wouldn’ wear shower shoes to my wedding, but I was considering some white sandals. I ended up with closed toe flats, though.

    I have fairly flat feet and hardly ever wear heels, so it didn’t take long before I came to the conclusion that I would not be wearing heels under my wedding dress.  I want to enjoy my wedding and not be worrying about aching feet or even worse, tripping and falling on my face!  I’m currently looking for a pair of dressy but comfortable flat sandals or peep toe flats.  I think there are a lot of dressed up shoes in a flip flop style that can be great for a wedding.  

    I completely understand your desire to be comfortable and I think it’s the way to go.  Chances are, no one will really be looking at your feet unless you are specifically drawing their attention there.  My sister ended up going with a pair of baby blue Converse with fancy laces for her wedding shoes – her feet are super wide and flat to the point that when she walks barefoot on tile it sounds like suction cups!  

    I’ve also been looking on etsy at clip on shoe decorations like bows and fabric flowers.  You could always look for something like that to dress up a pair of shoes that are less formal to start.
