I’m wondering about changing shoes if my feet start to hurt. I don’t heels often, but I want to wear them for my wedding.
If I change into lower heels (like 1-2 inches lower), do you think my dress will drag on the floor? Could I possibly trip on my dress?? Has anyone done this, or is anyone planning on doing it?

I changed to flip flops, yeah it kinda dragged, but no biggie, def worth it.

@everyheart: I had ceremony shoes and reception shoes, because I knew that my ceremony shoes would not be at all comfortable during my reception. However, both were about the same height (3.5″ heels.)

I changed from 3.5 inch heels to flats. yeah, it dragged a little more, but we had an outdoor ceremony so the hem dragged a little even on the uneven grass and was already dirty. Pictures were done though and it all came out when I got the dress cleaned (including the red wine I traipsed through on the train) so no harm done.

Hm.. Are you going to bustle your dress? Perhaps they could lift it up a bit more to make it work with shorter shoes if you ask?

I’m changing into platform flip flops! They are 1.5 inches shorter than my heels but I’d much rather have my dress drag a little than be in pain! I’ve seen lots of brides go barefoot at their reception and it wasn’t a huge deal. 🙂

Obviously it’s going to drag slightly. But wouldn’t you rather be comfortable?!

I am switching from heels to flats on my wedding day.
I have 3 1/2 in high heels for the ceremony, but sparkly flats for the reception.

Of course you can change… and many Brides choose to do so.
As others have said find the “flatter” shoes you wish to wear and bring them to your fitting… chances are your Seamstress can make the bustle work for you… otherwise your dress dragging on the floor more will happen (but depending on the style of dress, not always a big deal)
Comfort is important… it is afterall a very long day for most Brides.
Hope this helps,
