I've yet to actually do this, but i do plan on trying it out in the future. Maybe you could do the same with your camera.

I did exactly what you said above and got away with positive feedback from the groom.
Funny thing, the bride was happy with everything I did for the video whether it was 24p or 60i (the couple did not have enough money to budget the video and the bride was a cousin of my ex-boss, so I gave them like 40% off for the whole thing, so).
I really like progressive feel, but I just don't know when I am going to need that super slow-mo for creating dramatic+smooth slow-mo... also de-interlacing at the end do take a lot more time, but totally worth it for me.

Hi Luke,

I don't think you'll find that 25p "Twixtored" is ever as "good" as interlaced for slomo, simply because one is working with the original footage (50i) and the other one is digitally altered to smoothen out the footage (25p). I think as long as Twixtor can help you with your slomo and it doesn't look choppy (i.e. you're still happy with the overall production value) then it could be a good solution for you.

For me, I'm okay with less than smooth slomo in favor of shooting a production progressive - I just prefer the way it looks.

Hope that helps!
