@shaunamarslan:  Wearing flats is a totally reasonable option!  I wore flats and it was great.

You’re lucky that it’s not too short with flats! I’d look for a really cute pair of flats and enjoy being comfortable all day πŸ™‚

I almost did the same thing, actually called my bridal store back in a panic like a month after my order and luckily they were able to add it to the order. I really feel like the people at the store taking your measurements and placing the order should remind brides of this. Even online stores should have a note to order the length you want + your shoe height! It’s not like we’re all well versed in gown buying…

If flats aren’t your thing, maybe they can add a layer or something to your dress (depending on the style and how much time you have)? Sorry you’re dealing with this!

The same thing happened to me..I ordered online and the site said they add 2 1/2 inches for heels. Well they didnt! I feel your pain, even though I am 5’3″, my dress is too short for heels lol I have my heart set on them, luckily my dress is pick up, so I think that there should be no problem letting it down a bit.  Why dont you take it to a seamstress and see if there is anything that can be done?  Flats are fine too, but I totally understand the heel thing, they honestly make a woman feel sexy, and who doesnt want to feel sexy on their wedding day?!

What’s the silhoutte of your dress? If it’s an A-line or ball gown, are there layers underneath the skirt? You could possibly take out a few layers, which would allow the skirt fabric to flow straight(er) down and give you a little bit more length. I had to do this for my prom dresses, but luckily my wedding dress was long enough! I’m 6’2″ so I was amazed that I didn’t need extra length, but I’m wearing flats on the big day.

Good luck! Hope everything works out!

How tall is your FI? at 5’11 I’m sure you don’t need the heels, and unlike most of the rest of us, you’ll be comfortable.

I’m sorry that you’re bummed. There are so, so many cute flats options out there though — I just know that you’ll find something that you love!

I’m not even as tall as you are and I had the exact same problem. In fact mine was even too short with flats on, but luckily they let out a couple of the subtle pickups in my dress and it fit perfectly. There was no room for heels though.
