Hmmm….so I was planning on buying all my bridesmaid cute gold flip flops from old navy…not wanting to get the wrong size, I secretively ask all the significant others for the girls’ sizes. And I find out…………………………………………
my FI’s sister (who he’s not close with but I said should still be in the wedding since our other siblings are) has WEBBED-TOES!!!
Are you kidding me? Not only do I have no clue what to do now for the shoe situation, I also just learned that both my FI’s sister and father have webbed-toes…
Any ideas on non-flipflop thong style options for gold sandels for my bridesmaids (or at least for her)?

I couldn’t help but crack up because that is so random! What are the odds?! I just looked it up and from the pictures it looks like you might still be able to give her those sandals cause the webbed part isn’t the big toe itself. You might wanna ask the Fi about how she feels about wearing flip flops though, but from the pictures online, it doesn’t look weird at all.

LOL I was laughing too! Who would ever think that THAT would be something to consider!? Maybe start with her and ask her what shoes she might be willing to wear. Then go from there.

You really should make sure she’ll be comfortable in whatever you decide. There are lots of T-bar and other non-thong sandels out there. I’m sure you’ll figure something out!

Cosmetic surgery? No…that’s just mean. But really, that is SO randomly weird. Maybe purses or pashminas?

I would try and find out if she’s even comfortable wearing sandals at all. She might not like to show her toes at all if it is embarassing to her. Ballet flats would work and would be cute 🙂

LOL that is sooo funny…not for the poor girl….but how many bridesmaids are going to be receiving emails from weddingbee readers tonight “Hey girls….any one of you have webbed toes by any chance? Just checking! Love, Bride” hahahaha

this is a funny situation. i laughed also. i agree the flats are a good solution. maybe ask your FI’s father if she ever wears flip flops?

I have webbed toes and flip flops are not a problem. Most people with webbed toes have the 2nd/3rd toe kind of connected…. not like fish flippers or anything 🙂
Oh and by the way…. both my mom and I have webbed toes and I can’t even tell you the last time I thought about the fact that they were. Years probably. I don’t think its something most people are self-conscious about unless there was like, total webbing which is super rare.

thanks ladies! such as random situation. i just don’t want to do anything that may make my future sister-in-law uncomfortable so i’m going to totally look into the ballet slippers like you all are recommending….i am going to look into other possible gifts as well.
i’m also happy to hear that webbed toes aren’t such a big deal…i can’t believe i’ve been around my FI’s family so much over the past 3+ years and this has never come up

That’s hilarious and totally random! How could you be expecting that response!

i would definately find out if she owns flip flops… cause it is rare for the big toe and the one next to it to be connected. like someone else said its normally the 2nd and 3rd toes connected. thus flip flops are no problem.
i have webbed toes and rock them out every summer in flip flops!
