Some ideas off the top of my head: Lace trim; a 3 inch ruffled trim on the bottom (depends on the material of your dress); shorter heels; coloured band at base…

But what did the store say? This really is their responsibility to fix.

Depending on how you paid, you may be able to dispute the charge as item not received as described. That would get the stores attention.

How frustrating! I really hope it works out for you.

Yeah, if you paid using paypal or a credit card, try disputing the charge.

Fortunately, you have time to get a new dress, since your wedding is still a few months away!

Do you have the original order or email confirmation of what you ordered? You can tell them that what is on the receipt is not what you ordered. What’s on the receipt isn’t as important, because the receipt is printed up after the fact. You can still dispute it and say they got the order wrong and that the receipt doesn’t reflect what you actually ordered.

If you can’t get them to change it  for the correct length (and they really really should), then my vote would be for adding some lace to the bottom – preferably silver to match the embroidery – like in these pictures, but without the pickup at the front

Do you have a seamstress yet? I would go to her directly – if she can add an underlay, she will be able to hold fabric up to show you how it would look together. 🙂

How tall are your shoes?  Can you get kitten heels to take off some of the height?

Go get thee a seamstress and ask her. She’ll have answers.

As a suggestion, have you considered removing some of the crinoline? If the dress isn’t as poofy, it will hang lower. Not sure if this is acceptable to you or not, but it’sd an idea.
