What heel height were you planning on wearing? you dont want to pay for extra length and then end up with too much and have to pay to get it hemmed

I’m 5’9 and I had to add length to my dress.  I have shoes with a 2.5” heel (smaller than I normally wear, but my FH is shorter than me!). Once I put on my colored crinoline underneath it, it was even shorter!  So, we added 4” and if it’s too LONg now, it’s much easier to hem it.  However, mine was only $25 to add length to, so it was pretty nominal.

I’m 5’11 and had to add length to my dress. I’m wearing 2 1/2″ heels (also smaller than I normally wear but I don’t want to be FI’s height) and the dress is the perfect length.
