Crazy Talk

By Manolo the Shoeblogger

Manolo says, ayyyyyyy!

We outfitted our entire wedding party in Crocs. We had such a great time and everyone was so comfortable. Guys in black Metro, girls in red beach’s, flower girls and bride in white beach’s.

    oh the humanity

  3. Gigi Says:

    That is the most awful thing I’ve ever heard! I thought nothing could be worse than wedding flip flops – I was clearly wrong. I wonder how fun they will think this is when they look at their wedding photos in 25 years.

  4. Ann Says:

    Please God, don’t let them breed.

  5. Sandy Says:

    OMG – imagine the smelly feet….

  6. Karen Walker Says:

    These people should be killed!

  7. Oooh Ahhh Says:

    Aaaaghhh! And the bride attached styrofoam platforms to hers so that she would seem taller!!!


  8. Kourtney Says:

    Oh my. In the past, I have endorsed Crocs in limited (ie: yard or camping) circumstances, but this seems extreme.

    And crazy. Especially the hand-made Crocs – what a way to destroy the last vestiges of anything good or pure (comfort & orthopedic sensibility) that the Crocs may have laid claim to.

    Wow. Although I suppose – since I haven’t seen a mint green shirred satin dress in a while, it was time for something new in for the “shudder” bridesmaids experience.

  9. Elvira Says:

    Why bother dressing up at all if you’re going to ruin the entire look with those disgusting Crocs?

    I agree, they can be used in limited *casual* situations, like the yard or camping. A formal wedding does not fit that definition.

    These people would have been better off eloping to Las Vegas and getting married by an Elvis impersonator. In all likelihood, they would have worn more appropriate shoes for that.

    Oh hell no. Evil, evil people.

    And, for the record, when you are referring to something in the plural, first bride with the crocs, you do NOT use an apostrophe between the word and the “s”. Just sayin’.

  11. Phyllis Says:

    e – you took the words right out of my mouth.

  12. the Unfashionista Says:

    Perhaps for the beach camping wedding where nobody wears a dress…but not with the beautiful formal gowns that must be worn with the superfantastic shoes!
    I hope they at least paid for the crocs for the poor attendants.

  13. Ty Wenzel Says:

    I will pray for them – and their marriage. No. Really.

  15. Kimmiefromtheblock Says:

    Manolo, have you seen THESE? Ayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy! Please make a post about it…some people are thinking that the crocs in the form of the ballet slippers are an acceptable means of comfortable footwear—set them straight!!!

  16. twistygirl Says:

    One out of every two marriages ends in divorce. Twistygirl believes that the new statistic is that one out of every one marriage in which the wedding party is forced to wear Crocs also ends in divorce. If one does not love the feets of the selves, the spouses, and the friends, how can one love the soul of the same?

  17. ShannonShoe Says:

    I am getting married in 17 days…these images will HAUNT MY DREAMS until then!!

  18. SuzyDahling Says:

    Oh dear… I must confess that I own two pairs of crocs, one deliciously lurid pink, and one pair a more subdued sage green. Both are worn during work at the hospital only… and occaisonally during lab at college. Scrubs and crocs yes! Formal gowns and crocs…get thee gone satan! The power of manolo compels you!

    Surely a wedding day is the day for spending outrageous amounts of money on utterly decadent shoes…what were these people thinking!?!

    and how will they live this down in 10 years when crocs are passe

  19. Dani Says:

    TyWentzel, you are right. They have made a huge joke out of the institution (or sacrament, depending on your beliefs) of marriage. twistygirl’s odds sound right to me.

  20. Sam Says:

    Yikes to the platform crocs.

  21. Que Sera Says:

    Oh for the love of PRADA!!!! It is a world gone mad I say – Gone Mad! How can someone – even suffering from pre-wedding delusions think this has even a smidgen of good taste????

  22. desertwind Says:

    Ayyyy! The old K-Mart faux Chucks worn by the desertwind for her spontaneous wedding in Vegas exude more class — and, probably stank less! — than those Crocs.

  23. Eve Says:

    The best thing I see in this post is:
    1) What not to do in your wedding planning.
    2) Manolo being his usual super fantastic self in not revealing the name of this fashion criminal so they are not laughed off the streets world wide.

  24. kay Says:

    I will admit to owning a pair too- but ONLY to my job as a baker. They’re nonslip and easily rinsed clean with a quick spray of the hose, which are nice attributes when you’re working with butter flour and sugar all day. I hide them at work so no one knows my dirty lil’ secret. But, as I said above, anyone who would make their poor wedding party wear them is evil, evil to the core.

  25. elodiecheese Says:

    The tragic thing is that this woman feels that she is making a statement, that she is some kind of fashion pioneer. She is shunning traditional footwear and breaking free of conformism to enjoy her wedding day in comfortable and “hip” shoes.
    No. I can only weep for her delusional, misguided efforts, and offer condolences to the poor wedding party. There is no pride to be taken in wearing these hideous excuses for shoes. Further, Crocs are the last bastion of conformity.
    If my to-be-spouse ever made the suggestion that I should don such abhorrent dishwasher-safe rubber clogs for my wedding (or any occasion, for that matter) I would have to question their sanity and love for me.
    You cannot ask that of a loved one.

  26. high matenance Says:

    the people must be some really really oudoor kind of people to have even thinked about such a catastrofy. the wedding probably wasnt that great of a success because of it.

  27. Diana Says:

    Notice in the pictures supplied that everyone shown is either fat or tacky.

  28. Ryno Says:

    Hey, maybe the crocs were the only thing they all wore, and they were at the beach, and the weather was nice but the sand was real hot. No, they could still do better than crocs.
