I think the answer really depends on you. I spent 14 hours of my wedding day in heels higher than this but I commit to heels & they were relatively comfortable. So a couple of preliminary questions:

1-Do you wear high heels often/long?

2-How long is your reception?

3-Do you consider this particular pair comfortable?

not aweful but you will drag a lot and possibly trip a bit

If you are concerned, you can always buy a backup pair of shoes. On my wedding day I had 5 1/4 inch heels I wore for the ceremony and reception until 10/1030ish. I then changed into 4 1/2 inch wedges after a few drinks. You could not really notice the difference in length of my dress because I was walking/dancing anyway 🙂

@soy:  Not too high at all for me personally but all depends on what u are used to…. Mine are 4.5 inches! I def suggest wearing them and breaking them in before the big day! I love them!

My wedding shoes are 6in but I also wear heels pretty much every day that are the same height so I am used to it. If you don’t wear heels often you might want to start getting your feet used to them. And as far as switching shoes it’s your wedding do what you want. My sister just got married and she switched to flip flops at the reception lol no one cared

@soy: So accomodating for the flats are the only realistic option.  Having looked at your dress, I would say get it hemmed as much as possible without having the heels show and if it’s still drags when you put your flats on pack an extra crinoline or two to poof it out. You’d be amazed how much length a crinoline will lift.

Those heels are so cute! Could you switch to a slightly lower, more comfortable wedge like a PP suggested? I def wouldn’t want to go from a high heel to a flat – the extra length of the dress would be difficult to deal with.

I couldn’t wear those for longer than 5-10 minutes before ripping them off in pain, but i’m a cute ballet flat kind of girl!

I think honestly 3 inches (or a little higher if there is a platform) is as high as i’d ever want to go, especially if i’ll be walking around for pictures/standing during the ceremony/walking around greeting people and then dancing for 8+ hours.

When I put my flats on I also chaned my dress. The difference between 5 1/4 and 4 1/2 wasn’t too noticeabl though 🙂

@soy:  My wedding heels are 5 1/4 inches and I plan on ripping them off right after the ceremony and getting into my flats.  My solution to the HUGE height difference: FRONT BUSTLE!  Definitely ask your seamstress if it is possible for your dress.  I got super lucky and it worked BEAUTIFULLY with my dress.  My seamstress said front bustles can only work on certain dresses.  Mine is a mermaid organza with ruffles.

They are just gorgeous….no such thing as “too tall”, as long as you’re comfortable in them – they are fine. And you always have the option of bring flats or flip flops?
