    Maura those are awesome!! I don't think you told us about these earlier. I love the starfish design on them. Wonder if we can order from there if we can figure it out in spanish?
    On another note for the girls that did the flip flops what kind of bucket did you put them in?

      I just emailed to see if they have anything in English. I'll let you know if they get back to me.

      shelley - i dont know - let me ask my SIL how she ordered them. i know the company is based in jalisco (not near mexico city). i'll find out and let you guys know.

      we displayed them on a table rather than in a bucket.

      ETA:

      I just talked to my SIL - she told me that she ordered them directly from the company in Jalisco. they required a 50% payment up front for the order, and another 50% when they were completed. then they shipped the box directly from jalisco to los cabos to the resort where we got married. she said 4 months ago when they ordered them for us as a surprise, they were 39 pesos (so a little more than $3.50 US) for each pair if you ordered 80 pairs or more. if they had only ordered less than 80 pairs, the price would've been 45 pesos for each pair (about $4.09 US when 11 pesos=$1)

      she isnt sure whether they'd be able/willing to ship to the US.

            Such a cool idea! Please let me know if anyone finds a great place to order these, I can't translate the party flop site...I'm Canadian...no Spanish what so ever!

                We did this too - but with Old Navy flipflops. Red for guys, turquoise for girls. We got the sizes before hand and just displayed them on a table. Everyone wore them - even the guys. I think it helped that we gave them out at the ceremony, not in the OOT bags. I think it made people wear them.

                Here is a pic of the setup - you can see the flipflops in the front.
