Frequently Asked Questions
Who buys the bridesmaid flip flops?
Tradition says that the bride should buy the flip flops for her bridesmaids as a gift. If the bride doesn’t offer to pay, she shouldn’t make them a requirement as this would just be an extra cost that her bridesmaids might not have planned for.
Can the bridal party wear flip flops during the wedding?
Typically bridal party flip flops are meant to be worn only while getting ready for the wedding and/or later on at the reception, not during the actual ceremony. If you want your bridesmaids to wear flip flops during the wedding itself, you may want to look for a more muted option.
What can bridesmaids wear instead of flip flops?
Instead of flip flops, your bridesmaids can wear any other sort of footwear including sandals, socks, or slippers. All of these options are fun accessories for wedding morning and can be changed into once you and your girls hit the dance floor at the reception!
