When my sister was planning her wedding, I asked her what shoes she was planning to wear. “Shoes?“, she asked. She’s not a shoes gal. Instead, she said she’d wear flip flops and she hoped guests could do the same. The wedding was outdoors in Northern Michigan near a lake, so flip flops were especially appropriate, and completely comfortable. Today, we’re sharing how to design your own wedding flip flops with help by the lovely folks at Sandalista. These wedding flip flops are different than you may think. Instead of adding a bow here or a rhinestone there, these wedding flip flops make it possible for you to add your own custom photos, graphics, or select from a collection of professionally created designs by artisans. Read on to find out how to design your own wedding flip flops…
This unique flip flop company, Sandalista, offers custom printable wedding flip flops (or everyday!) with a design studio built right into their website. For only $24 plus shipping, you can design your own wedding flip flops with photos of you and your honey, your favorite color scheme, a favorite pattern, or anything else of which you can dream. Can you image flip flops as gifts for bridesmaids with a group photo of you together, her favorite band, a hilarious inside joke, or a favorite pattern? Don’t forget the groom and groomsmen, too! If you aren’t a designer yourself, you can also select from beautiful designs by artisans on their site. For instance, the flip flop pair above with the anchor print would be perfect for a nautical themed wedding.
To share this idea with us, the folks at Sandalista gave us a coupon for a free pair of sandals so we could try out the site and check out the quality. Instead of a custom photo, I opted for a design from their artisans in house and selected from this whimsical print by Rebekah Ginda (view her flip flop here). This flip flop is called “Boating to the Edge of Flower Forest”:
Isn’t it lovely? I can’t wait to wear them the first chance I get! Here are a few additional flip flop styles I also adore:
If you’re wondering about the quality of the flip flops, I must say that I am very impressed. These aren’t cheapo flip flops – these are the real deal! The foot bed is sturdy, comfortable, and the straps are high quality. I can tell these flip flops will last a long time. Bottom line: I love ‘em!

Disclosure: Sandalista sent a free pair of flip flops for us to evaluate, but the opinion is completely my own! They didn’t pay to give a good review – it’s the real deal.
