Reef flip-flops are one of my very favorite things in life. I buy a new pair of Gingers every year. Every year for the last 7+ years. So, naturally, when Reef reached out to see if I’d be interested in working with them to include their products in a post, I jumped at the chance.

Because here’s the thing — it’s not a far stretch to connect Reefs and weddings. In fact, I had a pair of Reefs for my first wedding (I took them off before walking onto the beach). And I wore that year’s Gingers for the rest of the time we were in Hawaii, because if it’s not snowing or raining, that’s what I always wear.

For the Beach Wedding:

These sandals are super comfortable, but look amazing with a gorgeous boho dress — perfect for your beach nuptials. No uncomfortable pinching or achy feet from heels for your laidback, badass self.

For the Honeymoon:
reef-ginger-honeymoon-footwear

Ginger flip-flop, $28

Whether you’re lazily strolling through European streets, stopping at the occasional cafe or bistro for a glass of bubbly or just lounging your honeymoon away on the beach, these flip-flops can’t be beat. They mold to your foot in a way that makes it feel like you’re wearing nothing at all.

For Date Night:

reef-bliss-wild-date-night-footwear

Bliss Wild, $26

Keep the romance going — and your feet comfortable — with these super cute sandals. I’m totally digging the gold accent and the airy feel, which could perfectly accessorize a cute dress or a sleek pair of skinnies.

    Photo: Beautiful Day Photography I've coordinated three backyard weddings so far this season, with two more to go until Labor Day. Backyard weddings are conveniently located, they're pretty, and you certainly can't beat the venue fee. But along with the usual issues they can have, I'm noticing a brand new crop of  mistakes that couples are making that are creating even more ... challenges on their…

    While the last wintery centerpiece had longer banquet or family-style tables, this cozy style is better suited for the roundtops typically found at a wedding reception. Simple, natural and super budget friendly, this one is just a slight spinoff of the last design. Step 1: Start with the piece of fabric that says "winter!" I stayed with the winter feel by using red plaid. But feel free…

    Ashley and Curtis' sweet Minnesota wedding was put together with a lot of time, energy, effort and love. While the bride and groom did not set a budget (!!), they managed to pull off a great party and amazing wedding under around $18,000.
