"I’m getting married next year and want to do something special for the ladies at the reception. I’d love to have a basket of flip flops outside the reception so that women can pick them up on their way in. I don’t know about you, but I’ve never made it through a wedding reception with my shoes on; this way your feet don’t get completely nasty. Anyway, I’m looking for the cheap ones they give when you get a pedicure (styrofoam, I think) but I can’t find them anywhere at all. Could you help?Thanks!!" Ariana
Have I mentioned I love a challenge? I’ve had a little look around for some disposable flip flops and here’s what I’ve come up with. This pair are $5.99 at The Knot wedding Shop
Beach Monkey have an enormous range of flip flops in pretty much every colour conceivable. Prices start at around £6.99 in the sale.
A cheaper option is to buy wholesale at Dollar Days. For $19.80 you’ll get a sample pack of 12 straw based flip flops with a coloured trim in sizes 5-10. Larger cases hold 72 pairs.
I found some styrofoam flips at Foot Candy in a one size fits all ‘party colour’ set though you cold opt for one colour. Individual pairs cost as little as $1.75 whilst a pack of 10 will only set you back $15.
UK based Promo Foam claim to be able to produce printable foam flip flops so you could have your names or the wedding date printed on them. Check for prices.
Why not make the flip flops keepsakes for the wedding guests and throw in items such as a nail polish, toe seperators and files too? Check out our make up blog Kiss and Makeup for great polishes.
