Last Friday, Dave and I attended a wedding of a teacher of Hayleys that she had in the past. The service was beautiful, as was the bride and the groom looked handsome in his Military Dress Uniform.
The reception followed. It was at a Yacht Club and the room the reception was in was beautifully decorated. Before the bride, groom and wedding party arrived, the DJ called out that in the front of his stand were bins of flip-flops for the women once their feet started to hurt from the heels they were wearing. It was such a surprise, I had never seen this before. All the girls were ooing and ahhing and running to the front.
The bride and her bridal party had bought flip-flops in various sizes and decorated them all with glitter, sparkles, foam, felt flowers and shapes, as well as ribbon. Every pair was different. At the top of the page is two of the girls from our table showing off their flip-flops. The flip-flops were a delightful surprise. Most of the women and girls who took a pair were already putting them on ready to dance the night away.
Once the music started, the dance floor was flooded with women and girls wearing their custom flip-flops. All their feet were sparkling and shining underneath the lights. I thought the flip-flops were a surprising and welcome addition to the reception.
I picked up a pair to show to two young women in the family to maybe give them ideas????? 😉
