You mean your dress will become too long, right?  I considered this too, I think it’s just something you will have to deal with.  I think it will look better to have your dress be a few inches too long than a few inches too short, so have you dress hemmed while you are wearing the Nina heels.  Also, you could consider wearing lower more comfortable heels instead of flats for your reception, so there won’t be too much of a difference in your dress length.

Well, if you have your dress hemmed for the 4″ heels, you’ll drag it around when you switch to flats. And if you have it hemmed for the flats, your tall shoes will be very visible when you have those on.

Maybe platform sandals or something a little more comfortable? I’d probably look at comfy shoes with a 2″ heel or so, that way it’s not such a huge difference.

Yes you dress will probably be too long if you have it hemmed to the heel height.  I don’t think there is much you can do about it unless you have them hem the dress higher which might look weird at the ceremony.

@Erica – I have 4 inch heels for the ceremony and three inch heels for the reception.  At first I thought that was kinda weird, but you are right…any difference in height will make a difference and feel better!

Maybe ask your seamstress if there’s a bustle solution that might help? Maybe there can be hooks to create ‘pick-ups’ to your dress after the ceremony that will also make it shorter?

Are you going to be primarily inside for your reception?  I think as long as you’re not dragging your dress around outside, you’ll probably be ok to switch into flats.
