I just tried my dress on with my perfect shoes… the shoes it took months to find… and my dress is about an inch of the ground. Is there anything they can do to make it longer? I saw a hem at the bottom so I am praying that can be dropped a bit.
Does any know? My fitting is not until next week. Should I be looking for new shoes? ugh.

Umm that’s tough to answer. You’ll have to wait to see what they say at your fitting. You might be able to get a little more length out of the hem but not a full inch because they’d still want to have a nice finished hem on the bottom. You could always add a layer of lace detailing or something. But then that could get costly. Might want to find another pair of shoes.

Well, the good news is that your hem is supposed to be about an inch off the ground anyways 😉
If it’s too much it all depends. The MUCH cheaper option would be to get new shoes, unfortunately. But, most people won’t see them anyways… and most brides kick them off way before the nights done 😉

oh no! total bummer. I’d look for new shoes just in case. Bring them to the fitting so you can still have the fitting if your dress can’t be lengthened.
Is there a seam under the bust? There might be extra fabric there too.

No seam under the bust. Darn!
I was thinking they might be able to remove some of the netting from under the dress and maybe that will help it drop a bit.
I guess I better look for new shoes too. One thing after another the closer we get to the wedding

You could always add a layer of tulle underneath. I’m not sure if that would work with your dress, but other Bees have suggested it and it sounds like it could look soft and pretty.
But yeah, shorter shoes is probably easier. Good luck!
