I decided to have a flip flop basket at our wedding reception after a friend of mine had one at her reception. Those flip flops saved my poor, aching feet when I wanted to get my dance on (I don’t mess around at wedding receptions). I had worn my super-cute-but-uncomfortable-after-wearing-for-more-than-3-hours lace heels.
Are complimentary flip flops necessary at wedding receptions? Nope. I don’t even think receptions are absolutely necessary. To me, receptions are all about having fun, eating good food, and dancing. So to encourage my guests to keep dancing, I wanted to treat their feet.
