OH NOES!!! They can't be from Walmart...amanda would NEVER wear anything trashy from Walmart.

Actually, you can tell from the stripes on the footboard that they're not Walmart (I worked in Walmart shoe dept in High school)...Kmart maybe. Or Target. Either way, I'm about 90% sure the shoes themselves came from a box store. I just meant "Keds" like we call tissues "Kleenex" and black markers "Sharpies"...even if they're Puffs or Marks-A-Lot.

ETA: If you look at the designer's website, she actually favors "City Sneaks", aka Payless.

My friends wedding I was in, we all wore black heels, but two of us switched to flip flops for the reception.

A sisters wedding I went to, she actually had her bridesmaids go barefoot for the ceremony (which I actually felt bad for them because it was outdoors, in March (which it can still be chilly in March in AZ) and they were walking on concrete, which keeps in the cold or the heat). She wore flip flops (the rocket dog type). The only reason I knew she had flip flops on was her dress was to long and she actually had to lift it to walk down the aisle (I'm suprised she didn't get it hemmed).

When I get married, I've debated flip flops, I've seen the ones I like in a bridal magazine.

I figure it's my day and I might as well be comfortable. I love wearing heels but they KILL my feet within 30 minutes to an hour.


I love these Vera Wang shoes, but there is NO WAY I can justify $395 for a pair of shoes.

In my big gay wedding, we're either both wearing black tuxes OR we're gonna wear white linen on the beach, barefoot.

See -- simple!

my something blue was my shoes. i knew i wanted ones that had an ankle strap b/c my dad and i danced to "mack the knife" and were somewhat choreographed, so i didn't want my shoes flying off. plus, b/c my dress was all lace and we didn't want to mess with the hem, they had to be 3 inches high. fun....but they weren't that bad. my ceremony was only 15 minutes and we were too crazed at the reception to notice any pain, so....i dyed them to match the blue of my bridesmaid's dresses. i thought it was cute!

Not even $5. Wal-Mart carries their "Dollar Dazzlers" (seriously, that's what's on the box) for a buck. When we went on a chapter trip hiking to see the new lava flows on the Big Island, those shoes melted on my chapter sister's feet.

Those were the flops I wore at my wedding! I loved them! They were easy to move in and comfy!

My older sister got really beautiful white ballet flats. They were AMAZING! Super cute, very comfortable for her and looked nice underneath the dress. She also did not have to change at the reception!

They were actual wedding shoes, not Target shoes - I think she got them from David's Bridal?

I wore these^
My bridesmaids wore their own choice of silver shoes

I bought everyone flip flops for the reception, white for me and silver for my bridesmaids.
