I’m a massive heel fan so I would say wear heels! My Fiance is taller than me, so I’m wearing the highest heels I can get!

I am in favour of your plan.  The coolness factor makes the hoopskirt a good idea, also you can sell that too after the wedding.  I opted for heels rather than hemming as well, and my suggestion is to look for platform shoes to help give you the extra height, while maintaining some level of comfort.

I wore a hoop skirt.  I had a flexible ring hoopskirt, so sitting is totally possible.  And so is squishing it to get into a car. Also, the nice part is that the hoops hold the dress away from your legs. I would go for the hoopskirt.

I’m also wearing a hoop skirt with my dress! Definitely feels cooler down there with it on, and there will be no hemming of my skirt which is sooo great because I have a scalloped edge that would cost a fortune to hem up! I love the shape a hoop gave my dress. My salon where I bought my dress borrows hoops to their brides, so maybe check with yours?
