I'm not a big fan of dressy shoes with heals. So when I was getting married, I knew I was not going to end up with the traditional kind of of wedding shoes everyone thinks of. I knew I didn't want heals #1 because they are hard to walk in and very uncomfortable to me, and #2 because I didn't want to be as tall or taller than my now hubby.
My mom found these bridal flip flops at a small bridal shop while in Hawaii, and she knew they would be perfect for me! Even though I could not try them on for myself, she sent me a photo and I said yes, I wanted them. She bought my size and brought them home. They fit perfectly and I was so excited!
This sandal is completely white and has crystals and pearls along the tops of the straps. The bottom is stiff so that it acts as a solid shoe, but it is still flexible enough to give a little when you step. The straps are made of leather, so they are very durable.
I had a spring wedding and the weather was just getting nice out. It was still a little cold, but not too bad. My feet were so well covered by my dress that they never got cold. I was thankful that I had them on at some points in the day so that I could just slip in and out if I wanted to stretch my feet.
I wore these sandals the whole day and night of our wedding day. They were quite comfy and had just enough padding on the bottom that my feet never ended up hurting. I took them with me on our honeymoon and tried to wear them around the resort. For some reason the strap of the left foot started rubbing on my skin and irritated it badly. I'm not sure if it was the sand, salt, or the way the sandal was settling to fit on my foot, but it was bad. I have since tried to wear them out for a day and had the same problem. I heard recently that you can rub Vaseline on the strap to soften it, but I have not tried it yet.
