Yup, that would be me!  My shoes for the ceremony are about 3.25", and my shoes for the reception are about 2.25."   I had the dress hemmed for the shoes for the reception, which means that a little bit of my (red) shoes will peak out during the ceremony.

I am having a barefoot ceremony, but my heels for our first dance are 3.5", then flats for the rest of the reception. I had my dress hemmed for bare feet. My shoes will show during our first dance, but it also keeps my hubby from stepping on the hem of my dress

Definitely hem it shorter than it needs to be. Better to show those gorgeous shoes during the ceremony than trip over the dress all night!

Also, just a note, if you’re having your ceremony on grass, it’s better for the dress to be a bit shorter anyway– you’ll sink in a little, and the grass itself is higher than your soles regardless. I tripped a few times on the grass, and my dress was supposedly the perfect length on regular flooring.

My dress has a train, but it isn’t a traditional one (it "bustles" into an obi-style sash), so I don’t have to worry about the train.
