    What is the waist of your dress like? Is it possible for the person altering it to shorten it from the top of the waist? For gowns that have ornate bottoms, this is generally how they are altered.

    I love the mocassin idea – I don’t think it would be too long

    I love both of those shoe options!!  Could you do the heels for the ceremony and the mocassins for the reception?

    @NavyBride16:  +1 a shoe change is always a great idea!

     

    @kris325:  both shoe choices are cute

    @kris325:  wedding gowns are made to be altered, so there is almost definitely a way to shorten it. However for 1 inch I think that would be too much money/work. It’s hard to say which shoes, though, without knowing what the dress looks like.

    Oh crap, I voted for the low heels but I meant to vote for the boots.  Those boots are awesome!  I actually dislike the low heels, LOL!

    I’d say wear the boots and shorten the dress.  Unless the seamstress has told you that they cannot hem that dress, it should be fine.  I think scalloped hems are the only ones that can’t be hemmed.
