I haven’t heard of anybody doing this, but I asked the same question with mine. My seamstress didn’t want to mess with it because she didn’t think it’d look good… so I ended up going with a lesser heel for the ceremony so that my platform flip flop for the reception was comparable. I think the pickups in the front can be done – just make sure you’re going to like that look!

I’m going to be doing this with mine! I bought my dress from once wed and the girl who wore it before had done this rather than have it hemmed. Granted, I haven’t actually worn it or gone in since my first fitting yet, but my seamstress demonstrated how to do it and I think it will look great. It’s very subtle (only needs to be shortened a couple of inches, much like yours I’m sure) and works well with the trumpet shape and rouching of my dress. If it makes you feel better I can send you a pic in early September when I go in again.

i was thinking of doing this actually. i have a giant hoop skirt for my dress, but i am thinking i may remove the hoop skirt before going to dinner after the ceremony (and that will make my dress too long). but my shirt has a floofy part that goes all around and would hide it if i did this… i don’t know how it would look right out in the open…
