I can’t see the pics either, but I do think it’ll be too short if you plan to wear 5 inch heels… that’ll put you at 5’9″ and the dress is fit for a 5’6.5″ bride.  2.5 inches is a lot of shoe to show, in my opinion.

You didn’t say which Enzoani dress and the pics aren’t visible, but depending on the style, you could find a fabulous petticoat that is longer and let the edge of the petticoat show.

Some dresses are designed to do this.

When it’s time for the flat shoes, take off the petticoat.

Sorry, but I really think you need to suck it up to find lower shoes. I really think it will look silly to have that much showing underneath, and I think shoes are easier to compromise on than the dress because it gets seen a lot more in person and pictures!

Get a second opinion from another alterations shop or seamstress. Honestly, it sounds to me like they don’t want to mess up the dress, and to be quite honest if I were in your position I’d find a new dress or find new shoes – the more you mess with something like that, the more likely it is to look jacked up.

if you’re okay with a layered look, you can maybe add more tulle to the bottom of the petticoat/crinoline to lengthen the dress that way. But from someone who sews, I don’t think you can add tulle to the bottom of existing tulle without a visible seam/line where the two pieces meet. Maybe you can do that a few layers under and it won’t be as noticeable.

edit: I am considering doing the heels/flats combo too but the bridal salon where I am considering an Enzoani said I should either pick heels or flat for the entire night.  Not only will it drag but if someone steps on it tulle will tear very easily.  I do like a PP’s suggestion about lengthening a petticoat and taking the petticoat off for the reception/flats part!
