BM Gift Idea - Your Thoughts?

I'm letting all my BMs choose their own shoes for my wedding. I know that the majority of them (or all) will choose to wear heels. Weather permitting, we will be doing pictures outside on a grassy area (read: not very heel friendly). So, I was thinking these might be good as part of the BM gifts. They could also be nice for dancing, etc. Maybe cute picture opp too?

What do you think? Would you be happy to get them (along with something else)? Would you wear them again in the summer with jeans/sweats/etc?

    I think they are cute. I would wear them again. I also know 1/2 of my bridesmaids would not. You know your bridesmaids best. I have also seem them without names on the side, just intials on the front on what looks like a button. Maybe some would be more likely to wear those?


    I didn't vote...i didn't know where my response fell in.

    I bought my girls silver flip flops from Old Navy so they could take their heels off at the reception. They were neutral enough that they would wear them again.

    I would suggest this.  I wouldn't wear flip flops with my name on them.

    I wouldn't wear those again. I would wear neutral silver or something flip flops again, and would welcome that gift. HTH

    I did this also. I got different variations of purple flips flops from Old Navy for them to wear. That way they could easily use them again

    It's a cute idea, but I would only wear them around the house.

    Thanks ladies!

    I think if I don't do something like above, I would do something a bit more formal that the old navy ones. Something like this maybe? http://www.jcrew.com/womens_category/shoes/flipflops/PRDOVR~42958/42958.jsp

    Im buying my girls flip flops for the same reason. I am buying plain black ones probably only a few bucks but they arent really going to be a part of their gift. I would never personally wear flip flops with my name on them. - Im probably going to do something similiar to the J Crew ones but much less expensive.
