So I've been searching for ivory platform flip flops that aren't to plain. So I decided to just buy a pair of white flip flops and dress them up myself. What do you girls think?

 

Here's a picture of the flip flops I just bought on ebay.

Any ideas how I can make these in more of an ivory color? Or I'd even throw around the idea of putting some color in them!

That is a cute idea! I would've never thought of DIY flip flops. I just got mine from Avon! LOL

Adding color sounds like a good idea. Maybe you can incorporate your wedding colors & buy diff color rhinestones!

You know you'll have to post pics of the completed look!

I am having the same problem. I bought a pair of sandles that are white, but when I chose my dress, I got it in ivory. I am thinking of wrapping ivory ribbon around the bottom of the sandle to make it match better.

 

You could definately add colored rhinestones or ivory to the tops to make them match.

Once they come in, I'll take a ride to Micheal's and pick some stuff up. I don't really have wedding colors, I've been doing everything in fuchsia and a bright turquoise. Once I finish them I will post some pics!!

Just to let you know, I ordered my dress in ivory as well but my flip flops were white. The color difference was not that noticeable at all. Actually, what really got me was the fact that the sample dress that I tried on in ivory was sooo dingy & dirty, that I was not prepared for how "white" the actual dress looked when I got it, even though it was really ivory. So you may want to keep that in mind.

 

I cant find the ones that I ordered from Avon that had a little bling, but for those of you still looking for something, here are some that they do have. They are only $6.99 now.

This is them in silver:

Yeah I have those in Black and White. They hurt my toes though, they're to loose over the top of my foot. And yeah, I don't think it'll be that noticeable if the sole is white! I'll just have to get creative!!

You can use acrylic paint from michael's to paint the edge of the sole if you are really worried about the color difference. I found a pretty paint in "sand" or "butter" that came out nicely. I would suggest using colored stones that are also incorporated in your wedding colors. My wedding colors are purple and green with ivory accents.

I attended a beach wedding this summer. The BR wore ivory with tall white flip flops like yours....she simply embellished the top of the straps with little shells and a few pearls. You couldn't even notice the sides of the soles.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
