You’re planning your wedding, one of the most exciting days of your life! You’ve picked out your dress, the jewelry to match, and the hairstyle you’ll have on your big day. But now, you’re worrying about the shoes you’ll wear. You want to look elegant and beautiful, but you don’t want to walk around in those uncomfortable high-heels all night!
Go ahead and pick out a pair of elegant high-heeled shoes for your ceremony. You’ll want to wear these formal shoes for the ceremony part of your big day. However, you don’t have to have hurting feet at the end of your celebration! Instead, you can invest in a pair of wedding flip-flops.
Wearing a pair of elegant flip-flops at your reception sets a more casual friendly tone. Selecting a pair of wedding flip-flops will allow you, as the bride, to move about more freely and to dance without hurting your feet.
You could even give your bridesmaids wedding flip-flops as a thank you for participating in your ceremony. Their feet, too, will thank you for the comfort of a cushy sandal.
The good thing about wedding flip-flops is that they come in many heights and styles. You can get platform flip-flops, which have a similar effect to high-heels in terms of height, or you can invest in a flat pair of flip-flops. There are even flip-flops that have heels on them like regular pairs of high-heel shoes.
Many wedding flip-flops come in white. However, you can find some designs that come in ivory. Some of the sandals contain rhinestones or beads that add color to the shoe. Other flip-flops are clear or silver.
If you’re thinking about getting your bridesmaids flip-flops for your reception, many of them are dyeable. Check with the retailer you purchase from to make sure the shoes you are purchasing can be dyed without being ruined. You’ll also want to keep these things in mind if you decide to dye the sandals.
- Some stores will only dye the shoes for you if you purchase your shoes with them specifically. If the store follows this policy, you may want to check out shoe repair shops to see if they have the capabilities to dye shoes.
- Leave plenty of time for your shoes to be dyed. Shoes cannot be dyed overnight. You should take your shoes to be dyed at least a month before the wedding to ensure they will be ready in time.
- Dying shoes to match a color swatch or the bridesmaid dresses is nearly impossible. Expect that your shoes will be a close, but not perfect match.
If wedding flip-flops sound like a good notion, look them up on the Internet. Take them for a “test drive” if you’re able. Your feet, your bridesmaids, and your bridesmaids’ feet will thank you for it.
