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.
Whether you’re dressing up, dressing down, going sightseeing or just lounging around, Reef has something perfect for every part of your wedding and beyond.
For the Bachelorette Party:
Voyage Low bootie, $115
How cute would these be with a classy little swing dress and surround by all your besties?
For the Rehearsal Dinner:
Celine flip-flop, $40
Cute little sundress? Check. Pre-wedding jitters? Check. Your best friends and fam around to celebrate? Check. Super cute and comfy shoes perfect for mingling? Nailed it.
For the Beach Wedding:
Gypsy Wrap sandal, $54
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:
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:
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.

So, after my slight breakdown , I’m back on track. Chris, the girls and I had a wonderful Mother’s Day, we went to Busch Gardens and had a really fun, relaxing day, which I think helped my overall mood a lot. My mother came down today to help me with the kids, which is always great. I have a race on Sunday, but their dad is going to a conference in Florida, and Chris has his paramedic class, so I needed some help with child wrangling. Cue my mother!
Say hi, Mom!
My mother, like me, is very type-A. She warned me before she came down that she had a list of things she had thought of that I still needed to do for our wedding. She wasn’t kidding.
Having both my mom and Chris is a wonderful thing. Chris is very laid back. He’s not uninterested, he just isn’t picky at all and is usually pretty happy with most of my ideas. My mom, on the other hand, is definitely on my team and agrees with a lot of what we want, but she will most definitely tell me when she doesn’t think something is a good idea or doesn’t think I need to do it, which is great when it comes to keeping costs down. So I have a good mix of laid back and type-A to help me plan. I was actually thinking of details today, and was considering wedding shoes. I’m definitely not a heels kind of girl. I’m tall, and Chris is my height (though he insists he’s a half an inch taller), so I don’t really need them. I’m also about as graceful as a baby giraffe, and I’d prefer not to break an ankle walking down the aisle. I already have a marathon the week before, so I’m definitely thinking flats are the way to go. Our colors are purple and silver, so I wanted to go with purple shoes. So I headed on over to Etsy, and I am absolutely in love with these shoes:
I absolutely love the lace details around the heel, it’ll match the lace designs on my dress. They’re $67, which, for someone who usually shops at Payless (except for running shoes, those are the only shoes I’m willing to spend a ridiculous amount of money on) is a bit pricey, but not horribly so. And I definitely have no problem wearing these again, I think wearing them to work after we get married will make me smile throughout the day. I think I’m actually liking planning the little details more than the big, expensive parts of the wedding. The girls and my mom are currently looking at flower girl dresses, so it may be one more detail down!
How’s your planning going? Is your mom stepping in to help?
