Wow. I’m surprised your’s is too short! I’m 6’3″ and the sample that I bought fit me perfectly when I was wearing flats. But they did say it would be $150 extra for 3 inches, which does seem like a ridiculous amount of money!

@Milk and Honey:  I’ve heard of a 100-200 hem to hollow charge where it’s made to your specific length… but this is a standard three inches… I don’t know who makes your dress, but if it’s any more t han 200 I’d be surprised. 

ETA: I’m looking on bestbridal prices and it looks like Watters charges like 200-400. I’m sorry your dress is going to cost more, but be glad you’re not 5 foot 2 and are going to need 400+ in alterations just so you can walk 😉

I’m 5’11 and mine was the same–just a smidge too short if I were to be wearing heels. I bought an Allure gown and paid $200 for extra length added. I like to wear a heel, so it was worth it for me…plus I came in under my dress budget so it wasn’t as big of an issue as it could have been.
