take it to a cobbler. they’ll be able to fix it easily.

eta: the cost will probably depend on the type of heel (like if it’s rubber vs. wrapped in satin). take it and ask for a quote. if it’s really expensive, just buy new shoes.

Sometimes cutting the heal can affect the arch.  You definitely don’t want your wedding shoes to be uncomfortable.  I would take them to a professional and see what they think.

@milesbella:, take your shoes to a good cobbler and get their opinion.

How much do you need taken off for the dress length to be correct? I can see maybe cutting off a small fraction of an inch, but any more than that and the arch and angle of the heel will be way off. It could make your shoes really uncomfortable or even hazardous to walk in. The last thing you’d want would be to twist or break an ankle on your wedding day.

I was also thinking of cutting a heel, but it seems more complicated than I thought…:-/
