I’m planning on doing this.  I’m hopping the bustling makes up for the height difference.  (but I haven’t talked to a steamstress yet).  I might change out of them after pics are done during dinner and put them on again for the important dances.

I’m also planning on doing this. I’m going to change into flat sandals after father/daughter dance. As of right now, I don’t really care that my dress might be dragging, but that might change when I actually try it on with the flats.

I was planning on doing this but my heel is so small in my wedding heels (only 2″) and I don’t feel very bride-y without them on so I think I’m going to keep them on when I’m dancing. I ALWAYS pop my heels off but I really don’t want my dress to drag either

I attempted this but put my heels back on and dealt with it as I kept stepping on my dress and ripping it 🙁

bustling your dress wont change the length in the front very much at all. I would be careful about changing into flats. What about a platform flip flop instead? I actually found shoes that were super comfortable and I wore them all night. It was important to me to find shoes that I wouldnt be dying to take off.

I did this. Bustling didn’t help – the bottom of my dress did touch the floor, but I was indoors by then and I desperately needed a break from my heels. Flats were the best decision ever.
