    OK I searched this forum and didn't find anything so here the foot questions come...

    1) If the groom and GM are wearing suits, do they wear flip flops? Doesn't that look funny?

    2) What do the guests wear? I know some people buy flip flops for their guests, but then what do they do with their other shoes to not look tacky and messy?

    3) What do the bridesmaids wear if they have a kind of formal right below the knee dress? I think it might look tacky for them to wear flip flops. I would presume that some people go barefoot but the sand is kind of rocky in Cabo and I would think that would hurt.

    Help!

      good questions Hayley - I haven't been married yet so I would love to know this as well.

      I have seen pictures of groomsmen in light colored suits with brown flip flops and it looks very cute and beachy.

        I haven't gotten married yet either... but, we planning on having FI and the groomsmen wear brown flip flops and the girls are doing barefoot jewelry with above the knee dresses (most likely). I am going barefoot.

        Most guests know the wedding is on the beach. If you want to buy them flipflops; then go for it. Maybe have an area out of camera sight for them to leave their shoes.

        Honestly, the girls who have already been married can answer better - but I am assuming that my guests will be intuitive enough not to wear 4 inch heels in the sand. =)

          My two cents....everybody (including me) who is attending my wedding will be barefoot. And at the reception they can wear whatever they feel comfortable in.

          1. My groom wore a suit and the groomsmen just wore matching pants and then a white shirt. They all wore the same brown flip flops. I actually thought it looked very nice.

          2. My guests wore whatever they wanted on their feet. Some were bare feet, some wore heels, some just wore flip flops. That was more their choice.

          3. My bridesmaids went barefoot. My sister didn't like it... but hey, I hated my dress at her wedding and I still wore it! Basically, if you want them barefoot, they should be able to handle it. Otherwise I did buy them all flip flop wedges. I figured that would look better than flat flip flops if the sand was too difficult to walk on.

            Just because they are flip flops doesn't mean they can't be dressy. I am wearing wedge flip flops with stones on the strap. WHITE Turquoise Rhinestone Thong Shoes NEW Flip Flops 8 - (eBay.ca item 190242945712 end time 27-Oct-08 11:53:36 EDT)

            As far as the guys go I think as long as you get a nice brown/tan dressy sandal then you're ok.

            Good luck!

              Thanks for the info! I think I will have the GM wear flip flops and bridesmaids wear nicer flip flops with rhinestones or something. I will check out that webiste!

                I'm so jealous! I just bought my sandals from ebay and they're really nice but I love the turquoise on yours!! and I adore the brown and turquoise ones in the other pics too...I may just have to look for another pair of those. :-)

                    I'm wearing wedge flip flops as are my BM's and FI and GM are wearing sandals as well. Fi isn't wearing a suit though just a sky blue linen shirt and white pants.
