Since you aren’t wearing any fancy undergarment like a corset or anything, I would just wear a strapless bra and underwear similiar to what you will be wearing on that day. Hopefully they come in soon so you can have them for your next fitting.

In regards to the length I would bring your shoes with you, these are a must to ensure that you have the correct hem. I would tell the seamstress your plan but I think you best bet it to have your dress fitted as if you would be wearing the two inch heels. It’s okay if your gown is a little long for the ceremony but it won’t look right if it’s too short for the reception.

Well,they always recommend you wear the indergarments you’ll be wearing the day of for your fitting appointments, as well as your shoes. The no shoes,wearing shoes is a little trickier. My daughter is doing the same thing as you are (getting married barefoot,shoes for reception),so the gown was altered to her with shoes on. The actual ceremony and beach time will be a shorter time period, so the seamstress suggested doing it the other way (with shoes).

I agree with roxy on both points! You should be fine with just wearing a strapless bra and underwear similar to what you’ll be wearing, and for the length I would definitely bring the shoes!! And explain your plan to the seamstress and see what she suggests!
