There is no such this as how a dress is “supposed” to be; everyone has different comfort levels and taste preferences. It sounds like your dress is how long it should be since you “think it fits perfect” — that should be a good indicator!

I agree that it’s mostly personal preference. My rule is that I want to be able to wear flats. 🙂 haha.

i orginially had my dress altered for flat but when i picked it up it was just a little too long and it didnt “flow”properly…so i went out on the hunt for some lower heels but they arent very attractive – i found some 3 inch heels that i like and they were “almost” perfect, i think my dress could have been slighly longer but i kinda like that the tips of them peaked out while i was walking. it didnt make my dress look too short. so that was good.

With the shoes you’ll be wearing, the dress should barely touch the floor all the way around. If too long you’ll be tripping on it all night.

@Gina-Marie: Haha I get that. My Fiance is 6’4. But…I’m 5’9 and want to emphasize our height difference. 🙂 I think it should just barely touch the floor with WHATEVER shoes you’re going to wear. 🙂

even though im sitting in this picture you can see how my dress was a little bit short, but it did graise the ground when standing which i think made my dress just flow the way it should be, with the flats and it touching the ground it just looked more stiff. but that is just my experience! haha not sure if that was any help at all
