    So I am thinking of doing the whole basket of flip-flops (like from old navy) in a basket at the wedding for guests to grab, but wondering did people really use/wear them or was this something you'd not do if you could re-do it? I'm just getting a bunch of random sizes for everyone to grab, but wondering if its a waste or if people really liked them & used them during ceremony or after at reception..or did they already have their own shoes or stayed barefoot?

    Just trying to save $ where I can, but like the idea if it's worth it?

    thanks!

    Hi Laura!

    Actually... my MIL & SIL had CUSTOM flip flops made for all our guests as a surprise! They were white & turquoise, with a starfish and our names by the toes. I did not know about them until the day before the wedding. They were awesome and all my guests totally loved them. Even my DH who does NOT wear flip flops bc he hates stuff btwn his toes put on a pair after the ceremony and wore them all night! (let me see if i can find a pic)

    If I could re-do my wedding, I would definitely still do the flip flops because they were such a hit! The only thing I'd do differently though is order some smaller sizes - unfortunately they ordered medium & large, and i needed a small, so they didnt fit me. But my guests still rave about the flip flops, among all the other things at our wedding. People were grabbing them on the way into the ceremony and changing out of their fancy shoes to wear them!

    I only have a couple pics here on this computer, the first two are from our photographer and the 3rd is from one of the guests which I yanked from our kodak gallery.

      I went to a DW a few years ago and they had a basket of flip flops. I must say that I was rather excited as was the other girls to receive them, but none of the guys wore them. I still have 3 pairs of guys flip flops in my closet from when the guys came to our room and threw them in there and never looked back...

            hi amy, they had them made in mexico (where they live) and brought them with to cabo.

            i am sure you could find a vendor here in the US though for decently cheap!

              I sent emails to all of my guests asking their sizes & then I went to buy the flip flops from Old Navy. I bought them in our wedding colors for the women but bought black & navy blue for the guys. I then put them in their OOT bags. Everyone loved the idea and even the guys wore theirs. I'd definitely do it again.

                Oh .. I never thought of giving out flip flops!!!

                FI is going to kill me as I keep adding to the list of stuff in the OOT bags, etc.

                But such a cute idea! Thanks for posting this!

                  wow that is a great idea. I love that you were able to get them personalized. My OOT bags are starting to get over stuffed
