Last night I bought all the needed under garments for my dress. So when I came home (naturally) I wanted to try it all on WITH my dress. So I dawned my Spanx, and put on the bra stepped into my dress, zipped it up, and thn stepped into my shoes… miracle of all miracles everything fits PERFECTLY!!! I was so excited I couldn’t be happier I have not made even one alteration to my dress and it looks like I won’t need to SCORE!
SO… my dilemma is that I was planning on needing to have my dress hemmed up ( I am only 5’4″ after all) so I was planning on having them hem my dress to like an inch and a half shorther than I needed it for my heels, so that when I take them off, my dress isn’t super long (also that would let my awesome shoes be seen)
Turns out with everything fitting perfectly I don;t even need my hem shortened, it is longer than I was hoping, but it is how you would probably hem it for my shoes.
So… I still need to go in to have the bustle added, but would you spend the $90 to have the hem shortened to make it more comfortable through the WHOLE day or would you save your money and just deal with one extra inch of skirt when my feel get tired and I want to take my shoes off?

i say no becasue I don’t like the look of the dress being too short when I wear the shoes. I’m gonna deal with the extra lenghs and sweet the floor with my dress I’m sure.

I dealt with the extra length towards the end of the night. I didn’t have any issues and people gave me a wide berth on the dance floor. I agree with Atalanta, when people hem the dress a little too short it looks off to me.

I think it is more important that the dress is the right length for when you are wearing your shoes.

Does anyone have a picture of what a “too short” dress looks like, I guess I have never seen one and just assumed it would look fine… but if you ladies have seen it…

I cant seem to copy and past anything on here for some reason after I blur out the faces. and this is a friend. but she did the same thing.. she ws only 5’2 hemmed the dress so you could see her gold shoes, and I just feel so bad but it looked awful and looks even worse in pictures. I dont think anyone should be able to see your shoes in a wedding gown unless you lift up our dress, at any time. I would leave it alone for sure!

Practice the aisle walk with your dress on.
Mine was just long enough that I had to talk totally upright and keep my posture. If I slouched, my dress went down with me and I stepped on it.
Test this out. Maybe you could just wear a hoop skirt or crinolen underneath.
