Are you having your dress bustled at all for the recetion? There are ways to make it a tad shorter if you plan on bustling it. Explain your situation to the alterations person and they should be able to help you figure out a solution that will be easy and quick.

Hi, Where did you find your fuschia shoes??  They are gorgeous and look just like the Kate Spades.

I ended up purchasing the Kate Spade Celeste – but they don’t have the blinged out bow….and not to mention they were $300.

great idea! just make sure you break them both in, nothing worse than flats that make you want to cut off your feet!

I had the same problem.  I needed heels as hubby is a foot taller than me but knew I wouldnt last all night in them.   I ordered a pair of shoes and thought the total heel height was 4″ but it was actually 5″.  Since I couldn’t return them and was in love with them I decided to just keep them and make it work.  My dress maker hemmed my dress 3/4″ shorter rather than to the floor.  This way when I had my flats on it wouldnt be soooo much on the floor.  The shorter length was perfect and you would never know it was a teenie bit shorter.

I also had a shorter heel to wear for the majority of the reception before I put flats on.  It wasn’t too bad and I didn’t trip at all.

But make sure you break them in!!!  I totally agree with avonleaR!!!  I pulled a Jessica Simpson and wore my heels in the house for months cleaning.  My shoes never once “hurt” or had pressure points they just got tired.

Good luck.
