Show of hands, anyone here surprised that I hate bridal flip flops?
Good. I’d hate to think any of my beloved readers have recently suffered a head injury so traumatic that would result in confusing me with someone who would ever approve of the chlamydia of casual footwear.
I don’t like or trust flip flops in the best of situations and I certainly don’t care for them as bridal wear. However I do understand a bride’s desire to have some comfortable footwear on the day she
screws me out of half a Kitchenaid mixer commits herself to wedded bliss.
What I don’t understand is why they would go for something so vulgar when for not much more in the way of pocket change when we’re talking wedding money ($79), they could have a darling little lyrical slipper like this, from ASH.
Because really, how sweet is that? It comes in several additional colors –a slate gray, pine, and black– but these are just so winsome without being twee.
Plus you won’t look back in 20 years and cringe at the sight of your white foam rubber platform flippies, and that is worth any price.
