- Wedding: July 2011
I was thinking I would wear ballet slippers or crocs or something like that under my dress. My mom and friends looked at me in horror. I figured no one would see them. My dress is long, but they were freaking because of the pictures and whatever. I talked to my FI about it and he said I should where what I feel comfortable in and not to let them freak me out. Let me preface this by saying that we’re Puerto Rican and fashion and shoes are a big deal. After talking to him for a while, I started getting the impression that he would like me to wear something nicer for the wedding and get the comfortable shoes for the reception when we start partying. I think he wishes I were more girly than I am. It’s weird, I love shoes, but I’d rather wear flip flops. So ok, now I’m thinking 2 shoes. So which one do you get your dress hemmed for. I’m thinking 2.5 in heel, because we are pretty close in height. Would that make a difference when the dress is hemmed? If I get the dress hemmed with my heels on, will I be dragging my dress around at the reception? If I get my dress hemmed with my flats on, will I look like I’ve been caught in a flood during the ceremony?
I attached a picture of my dress.
