I’m confused. If I wear heels for the wedding, and change into flats for the reception. How would I hem the dress? If it is hemmed for the heels then it would drag all over the floor at the reception. If it is hemmed for flats then it would be too high for heels.
I have been struggling with finding shoes a long time. The ones that I like have a 4″ heel.
The wedding is in about 30 days so I need to decide and get my dress hemmed ASAP!

I just got my dress hemmed for the heal, and when I decided to go down to flats (and then barefoot as my flats hurt!) the dress hung a little bit. If you are worried about this you caould always look for a wedge.

i get my shoes half a size up and stick drug store arch supporting insoles in them, makes a world of difference!

I got my dress hemmed for my heels and then changed into flats for the reception (after all the “official” dances and such). For some odd reason, my dress was still too long with the heels, so I was picking it up all day anyway, but during the planning process, I just figured that I would hold it up during the reception.

I would just wear flats the whole time or as the previous poster suggested, wedges. If you are interested in comfort.

I’m actually going through the same canumbdrum actually, I will be bustling my dress so i am currently investigating if i can bustle it based on a flatter shoe. I’ll let you know when i find out, hopefully later today.

Yeah – if you are going to switch from a 4″ heel to flats, you can’t really get around the fact that your dress will either be too short or too long with one of the pairs of shoes, and you’ll just have to decide which you’d rather deal with – or do something different with your shoes.

@BBtobe: Are you implying that you are getting your dressed hemmed with heels and trying to get it bustled with flats? I wonder if that is possible……if so that might be a good idea!

Get thick-soled flip flops for the reception. Comfortable solution. 🙂
