Cheap Flip Flops or Slippers

Marie S. (aka Princess Leia), on February 5, 2012 at 9:15 AM Posted in Do It Yourself 0 28

Sorry I'm high maintenance today. I'm knocking details off my list. I LOVE this idea and I'd like to have a comfy feet basket but am clueless where to get flip flops or slippers for not a lot of $. Any suggestions?

    I really think this is a cute idea...I know Dave Tutera would say no flip flops at a wedding, but the basket looks very cute, plus I'm sure the ladies would love you for the flip flops.

    I bought my BMs flipflops at Hobby Lobby for $1.99 each BUT if you want to order in bulk for all the guests go to www.dollartree.com they have a few diferent colors combos and you get a few different styles in each color or design.

    Awesome - So how many do I buy? I have 110 guests invited and it's an even split between guys & gals...

    Dollar Tree is out of stock and they have been for several months. You can still find them on their site but when you add them to bag it notifies you. Smiley sad I'm actually on this same search myself Marie so let me know if you find anything and I will do the same for you. Smiley smile

    Edit to add:

    As far as how many to get, I wouldn't really include the men in your number. Maybe get a few extra pair for them, but it will most likely be the women dying to kick off their heels! Smiley smile

    I just sent an email to this guy on Ebay - he does custom counts for the size & colors you want.

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/WHOLESALE-LOT-30-BRAND-NEW-PAIRS-FLIP-FLOPS-ALL-SIZES-AND-COLORS-/260945832296?pt=US_Women_s_Shoes&hash=item3cc1956968

    And here's the Ebay Search I just pulled

    While the price of $2/each isn't bad, the almost $30 in shipping is steep! Smiley sad

    I live in the area so I messaged him that I'd like to pick up instead of shipping. If he'll allow a pick up then I'm buyin' 'em cuz for $2 /pair they seem pretty nice.

    How many do you think I need? 40 Pair should like too many? Should I get some for the guys in case their feet hurt too? LOL

    Oh awesome Marie! If you can pick them up go for it because those are a nicer quality flip flop. If all 110 of your guests show, I would suggest having 50- 60 pairs of flip flops. I am planning on buying 50 and I am getting 5 that are men's sizes. However, we are buying Vera Bradley/Polo flip flops for our wedding party.

    Old Navy they're 2 for 5 but they have a day where they are $1. But you'd have to go early in the morning and I would bring people to help get the sizes you need.

    I'm happy with these - they come out to $1.75/pair and from the looks of the pictures a little nicer than the rubber ones. The pick up location is about a 20 min drive so I think it's a win/win. :-)

    Who knows - maybe I'll bling them out and add some peacock feathers LOL. I've been bedazzling everything else lately

    I was gonna say old navy has a day every year where they sell the flip flops for 1.00...you have to get there early because they sell out pretty quick.

    I'm kickin' my self in the butt - i bought myself 6 pairs of new flip flops at the Christmas tree store in August for 50 cents a pair. I spent 20 minutes looking through that bin - I bought every pair they had in size 6. 5,000,000,000 pairs of Medium & Large. Could have saved a ton if I had been wedding planning then.

    Marie...THey def look like good quality flip flops. I think they are a thoughtful touch for your guests. I think what makes a wedding, no matter what the budget or venue is are the personal touches, especially those that directly benefit your guests. Your guests are going to have happy feet.

    They have that basket on sale at Michaels for 40% off. I bought it last night for Cate's programs. Of course, I am going to glam it up a bit.
