    I wouldn’t cause I don’t like the look. I just hate taking my shoes off in the middle of a party, I rather suffer in awesome hills, or wear comfortable shoes in the first place.


    For my nice’s party a few months ago some cousins got really nice beaded flip flop who didn’t look like those beach ones or the old navy ones and matched their dresses better, I liked the look of it.

    All girls and me as brided wore flip flops at the reception/dance. I basically told my girls soon as the ceremony was done they could wear their flip flops.  So I say go for it

    I was a Bridesmaid or Best Man this past July and the bride gave us Michael Kors white flip flops and she bought grey ones for herself.

    We wore those flip flops as soon as we stepped into the reception hall, we were so excited!!

    I had a gift bag with dark silver ballet flats waiting at each bridesmaids chair in the reception.  I thought they were slightly more formal than flip-flops.  They all wore them.

    @Sassygrn: We did the same thing….and boy, oh, boy was it worth it!  We were all able to dance the night away in them!

    @joymarie83: I second this idea!

    I was a Maid/Matron of Honor last summer and the bride bought slippers for all of the BMs. They weren’t expensive, but they were a waste of money. We all just danced in our bare feet  /heels. However, if I had a cute pair of flats to wear, I probably would have worn them!!
