Those dresses are all gorgeous, but I do not agree with any of the shoe choices unfortunately.  The thought of chopping up that Vera Wang made me want to cry.

Sorry, but I absolutely hate the shoes… and don’t like that you’re trying to wear three dresses.

I guess if you can afford all of this, none of us can really tell you to NOT do it… nobody here wants to hurt your feelings, but just how honest do you want us to be?

@hotchildinthecity:  I agree.

That vera is BEAUTIFUL and chopping it to 5″ above the knee? You’ll barely be covered! And I just don’t get the boots with it. 

The pettibone dress is perfect to showcase shoes (like the floral ones in the image you posted) I just don’t see it working with foot crystals.

For the 3rd dress I don’t see how you could shorten that one with the drop waist, I don’t think it’ll look good, and I am not a fan of the shoes at all.

Sorry.

Yea, wearing those shoes with those dresses sort of makes me cringe. Also, I think if you shorten the Alfred Angelo, it is going to make your body look really weird because of the dropped waist.

Do you have a specific reason you are wearing 3 dresses? Just curious!

Are you sure you want to chop up these dresses?

Love all of the dresses but would never chop any of them. Don’t like any of the shoes/foot jewelry, but everyone has different tastes!

@KatNYC2011:  I agree about the main dress being perfect to showcase shoes!

Skip the first and third combinations and stick with dress #2 and the foot jewelry.  I wouldn’t spend any money on these designer dresses if I’m going to have them chopped off so severly.  And I’m sorry, but you have to REALLY REALLY love those cat booties to put them into your wedding day.

I think shortening both of these dresses will be a nightmare.  The proportions, especially on the Vera Wang, will be COMPLETELY different and might look strange.

It sounds like the footwear is something very important to your personal style, so I don’t want to go there… but why chop the dresses? If you want to show off your shoes, why not find dresses like that (or have them made) but done shorter? They would be more correctly proportioned and would make for a better look in the end.

I agree that this isn’t “3 dresses, 1 look” as you wanted. I see the first two going together because of the more romantic feel, where the 3rd is more dramatic. The satiny fabric of the third doesn’t meld well with the soft tulle of the others.

Lightinthebox.com has tons of fun party dresses inspired by wedding trends – pickups, petals, corset tops – and they’re short and some come in colors. You could save some money on the first and third dresses MAJORLY if you considered this route.

Not my look really, and I don’t find it especially bridal, but those last shoes are BANGIN’. :o)

ETA: And I will shed real tears if you chop that Vera.

@hotchildinthecity:  I agree as well. Cutting a Vera makes my heart hurt. Also, I think you will end up spending almost more in alterations than the three dresses combined. I dont think it would be very easy to shorten a dress with pickups. I think that would look pretty bad. I also hate all the the footwear choices personally.

@shunduh:  As other posters have said, is there a reason you can’t just stick with one dress?  My favorite is the first one (I would KILLED to have a dress like that), but I also like the middle one.

The shoes are DEFINTELY all too casual.  You don’t have to wear super high heels on your wedding day, and they can shorten the dresses enough so they don’t drag on the ground.  You don’t need them to be five inches above your knee in order to accomplish that 😉

ETA: I just read your follow up post.  Sure, wear two dresses.  I think the first and second go together well enough, but the last is kinda out of left field.  Maybe a party-like dress for before the ceremony?  There are tons of tea length and cocktail length wedding-ish dresses out there.  Especially with an unlimited budget.
