@cyndistar3: I’m 6’1″, if that makes you feel better ;-). I wore flats, and was grateful that my feet were still feeling great by the end of the day!

I would just suck it up and wear the flats :(. I’m wearing them because FI’s short, and even though it kind of sucks, there are a ton of cute flats, they’re cheaper, and I won’t be as worried about my feet hurting all day. No one will see your shoes, anyway :).

@cyndistar3: Have you tried any Mori Lees? They come in multiple different lengths. I am 5’10” and their middle length was perfect for me in flats. I almost went for the next length up so I could rock some 4″ heels since my Fiance is 6’4″, but I would have ended up having to have it hemmed and I didn’t want to pay for alterations. The middle length would probably be perfect for you with some 2″ heels.

@cyndistar3 – If it makes you feel any better the bridal salon that I ordered my dress from told me that I HAD to get extra length (I am just about 5’8″) and I declined since I had already tried the dress on and knew there was plenty of length. So long story short, the dress arrived and the hem was absolutely perfect with my 3.75″ shoes. My dress was a Lazaro and from what I’ve been told Lazaro’s run on the smaller side (guessing this is in width and length??). I wouldn’t worry to much about it. Just try to find designers that have longer gowns 🙂
