Hi, thought I’d reply bc I’m also a dakota bride πŸ™‚ Unfortunately, I haven’t altered my dress yet so I can’t really answer all your questiosn… But I can tell you I’m planningo n hemming the dress because I’m the same hieght as you and also only plan on wearing 2-4 inch heels. I researched a lot to make sure teh dress would look good on shorter brides and found a few and thought it still looked beautiful. So I wouldn’t worry about that..

 

Unfortunately I don’t know about the comfort factor but if I’m honest, I don’t think it’ll be ultra comfortable πŸ˜€

 

I’m personally not wearing a necklace as I feel the dress is so beautiful and has such beautiful lace I didn’t want to take away from it. But the main thing is that I’m planning on having a dangling earring (I love earrings) and I thought it’d be a bit much (and also some details on my hair so I felt it’d be a bit much for me..)

Hi petit-Chou , just letting you know, but I am ordering an enzoani lace gown and my bridal shop said I need to have the wedding shoes before placing the order. They need to fodder the dress at your exact height because lace trims cannot be hemmed!

 

hope this was helpful!

up, can anyone confirm if the hem of the dress can be shorten or not, as Colbyrose4 mentioned the dress needs to be ordered to height measurement?

I ordered Enzoani Diana (full lace as well) and was told that it would be VERY expensive to hem (but possible) and they suggested I bring my shoes when I ordered so that this cost could be avoided.

I was lucky though, the standard length fit me perfectly.  I am just a bit under 5’4″ and am wearing 3″ heels.

I ordered the Dakota “hollow to hem.”  I’m 5’1″ and hollow to hem will help keep the right proportions.  With hollow to hem they want you to have the shoes you will wear;  I just took the tallest shoes I have, knowing I wouldn’t pick something higher.  Depending on what shoes I actually decide on, I may still need to have it shortened a little bit.  But at least it won’t need five inches taken off the bottom, messing up the sillouette.  Ideally, with hollow to hem, you pay more upfront to avoid alterations when it arrives.  We will see if that plan works when it shows up sometime in January/February πŸ™‚

I also bought the Enzoani dress and was told that it can absolutely be hemmed if you need to, I’m 5’6 so I dont need it but inquired anyway just in case…if you look closely at the bottom of the dress the lace is in 2 layers, one on top of the other, so it’s just a matter of lifting the top layer (lace) up off the bottom layer (netting) and shortening it.

@vanillabeancounter:  Any chance you can confirm what hollow to hem you ordered? My store is telling me it can’t be any smaller than 56 inches!!
