I agree with Megan...I think that the girls will absolutely wear them around the pool! If my guests are anything like me...I NEVER have enough pair of flip flops! I think I own every color that Old Navy has...

    I wanted to do this to and my colors are also pink and orange:) But what are you giving the men in the OOT bags?

    52 booked + The Bride and Groom!!!

      I was going to do a flipflop basket too, but I didn't want to worry about everyones sizing and maybe forgetting someones. So I am just getting flipflops for the bridal party.

        For me, I definitely think it was worth it!!! One of my gf's went on vacation this year with her fiance & when they came back she told me that he said thanks for the flip flops! I thought it was too funny and was glad to hear that people still use them even though its been a year later!!

        Since I needed precise sizes, I simply sent an email out to all of our guests asking them their sizes. Everyone responded promptly & I was able to get all of the flip flops that I needed from Old Navy when they were on sale 2 for $5. I bought so many that the manager even gave me a discount. I got fun colors for women & basic black & blue for the men.
        I then put everyone's pair in their OOT bag.

          I've bought flip flops for our wedding guests. I just kind-of guessed on sizes. Went with more medium and large sizes (I figured people can always wear something a little larger). My feet are always killing me at the end of the night so hopefully this will make people feel a little better!

            I was wondering about all the favors, and it seems like flip flops are a huge hit at beach weddings,  any one knows where can I get them personalized, as I would like them to be a bit different than plain old navy flip flops

            Thank you

                I think that most people would already being wearing flip flops for a beach wedding, so I decided against them

                  I was thinking about doing this but we booked our ceremony at the gazebo not on the beach so I don't think there is a need for it now.

                    im still considering it but dont you think pple will be bringing their own flipflops anyway?  im having a beach wedding so wouldnt pple want to go barefoot on the sand rather than wear flipflops?  im really torn by the decision.....
