Sorry, but I find it impossible to tell what the skirt and hem etc is like from that website’s pics. TBH all I can really see is that the bodice looks like a bra  is showing through .

Sorry, not helpful I know – is there a better pic somewhere ?

It should be possible to cut the lace off, cut it to the right length,then sew the lace back on. Might be expensive though.

I really can’t tell what the dress looks like. But all dresses with lace hems are hemmed with the process sensoda described. It shouldn’t be anything new or different for seamstresses who are familiar with bridal alterations.

Is this the dress?

If so I don’t see any reason why it couldn’t be altered as PP’s said.

They’ll just pick off the lace at the bottom and reattach after shortening the hem. It might cost you more though because of the extra work, so do get a quote before you decide.
