    It should be completely fine. That’s a teeny difference. Glad you found shoes you love!

    Honestly, I think it will be fine. You usually have some wriggle room with hems. 1/4 of an inch is not a lot of difference.

    Try it all on and just make sure that you are not tripping!  You should be fine.

    TheQuickBride:  This actually happen to me – I had shoes that were 3.5 inches tall, but they were too gold for my champagne ribbon on my dress. I actually bought champagne 3.75 inch shoes that suited the dress (LOVE THEM). It did not make it look too short at all.
