Yes, I needed to hem my dress even with my heels.  You won’t know until you try the dress on with your shoes at a fitting!

@peacockrosebride:  Gorgeous shoes! Where are they from?

My shoes are close to 6 inches (Jimmy Choo Sierra) and I happily discovered that I won’t need to have my dress hemmed when I’m wearing them. A huge burden off me shoulders, given there are like a zillion layers of tulle, lace, silk and horsehair trim that would need to be individually shortened otherwise.

I will be choosing my shoes specifically based on not having to hem the dress. I am thinking Hey Lady shoes, but which ones I am going to get is going to be determined by how long the dress is once I get my crinoline on. No one will see them anyway.

Ha ha, I am SHORT, so yes. I definitely still needed a hem, even with 4-5″ heels.

I am 5′-10″ so I actually have to get shoes that are almost flat, which is perfect because I am getting married in Maui.  So no, I did not/ will not hem my dress.

I’m pretty short so I will need to get it hemmed
