I had very tall heels and changed into flats to boogie right after our first dance. I didn’t have a very full dress, but I didn’t have any problems with. The only casualty was that my dress got a little dirtier around the bottom than it may have otherwise, but we also had an outdoor wedding and reception!

i changed from 3.25″ heels to 2″ sandals, and i was fine, except for the fact that i was stepping on the crinoline in my dress a bit more (especially when i stood up after sitting or navigated stairs).  that said, it was the best decision i could have made because those 2″ sandals were SO comfortable! I even wore them for my first dance with no problem.  I say go for it!

I’m curious about this too. I have been killing myself trying to find the type of shoes I want with a lower heel so I don’t have to change my shoes because I was worried about the hem. But I may just have to suck it up and do something like this and risk stepping on the dress a bit!

I had the same issue. I wore 4″ heels then changed into my comfy 3″ wedges that I love. I had the dress hemmed to the 3″ heels and it was perfect. The seamstress and I discussed it.
