    Hi Everyone!

      I'm looking into getting flip flops as wedding favours for my destination wedding.  Does anyone know a reliable website/store for buying them bulk?  I'm looking to purchase about 80 pairs... Hopefully for less than a dollar.  Preferably able to chose colors.  Anyone have any ideas or info?

      Thanks!

      Wow thats a great idea but id imagine it will be expensive. Hope someone will come along shortly to advise you of a place to buy cheaply in bulk.

       

      Good luck, and thumbs up to the idea! x

        Not sure if you're still looking, but a friend of mine did that when she got married in march. She just called a few different Chinese companies and found a company that would do the flip flops for $1 each. They chose white (think that's the cheapest) with pink writing for the couples names and the date. They even got their names punched out of the flip flops so it left 'jicky's' (it's Jimmy and Vicky combined) all over the sand while people were walking. They ordered 80 pairs I think. 

         

        I think she just looked/researched online, found some wholesale companies and called them up to negotiate a price. She did all this from Australia, but I'm sure you could find some company's in the states.

         

        Hope this helps!

                  Old Navy has a flip flop sale twice a year. $1 per pair, limit 5 per person. I hit them up last time and between me and FI we got 20 pairs. We'll get another 20 next sale. Just get a few friends and you'll be done in no time.
