It sounds like she didn’t even add anything to the length and hoped you wouldn’t notice. I don’t think it’s too late to say something to accomodate your first pair of shoes since you still have some time before your wedding. 

I’m a big shoe person, so I would be irate if I had to wear shoes that I was less than happy with. I don’t wear heels less than 4″, so if i had to wear 3″ heels because my dress was too short…I would be most unhappy (esp. if I could have fixed this before the wedding). I would have said something to have the hem altered as I’d requested, since I am the one paying for the service. 

You don’t want to be distracted by your “second string” shoes, so why not try to fix it now rather than regret it when it’s too late?

Depending on the style of the dress, they would most likely have to order a new longer dress. This Thursday, I would talk to the seamstress about the initial mix-up with the consultant to see if there is anything she can do to lengthen the hem in the shop. I think reordering the dress should be the last resort. 

When you don’t feel like sticking up for yourself on this issue, remember the cost at stake: it’s not just about all of your money that you are paying for the dress, but also the regret/stress that can be avoided if you do all you can to fix the problem before the wedding. 

If you try now and it doesn’t resolve the issue, you can at least reassure yourself that you gave it an honest effort and stood up for yourself.
