Providing flip flops for female guests at the wedding allows them to kick off their killer heels and get their butts out on the dance floor while keeping their feet nice and clean.
There will be no achy feet or bare-nekkid feet at our wedding! Our ladies will be greeted with a basket of dancing shoes like these:
A few months ago, Target was running an awesome promotion called The Great Save Event.
I found colored flip flops at my local Target for only $1! They are made of soft and cushy foam rubber and will be perfect for our stiletto-wearing guests.
So I bought a bunch in green and pink. I got four pairs in L (9/10), four in M (7/8), and four in S (5/6)… for a total of 12 pairs.
I got home and placed them in this basket I had to see how they would look like, and they fit perfectly. I think that I will tie each pair in a ribbon of the opposite color with a small tag indicating the size. I will also make a sign and attach it to the front of the basket with a wider ribbon.
But I knew that 12 pairs wouldn’t be enough, so I ended up going to Michaels with a 40% off coupon and got a much bigger basket. Then I quickly dashed off to Target again and loaded up my shopping cart with about 40 more pairs of flip flops. I think the sales associate that checked me out probably thought I was nuts! But that’s okay because my dancing ladies will thank me. 🙂
Are you planning to provide dancing shoes at your wedding? Would you kick off your heels and throw on a pair of flops?
