    Definitey think you should keep it long! The flowy skirt gives it a sense of elegance that balances out the beautiful blinged out bodice. I feel like if you had it shortened it would remind me of a highschool homecoming dress.

    @kizzeroo:  I agree.

    The dress is beautiful kept long. Congrats on going to Vegas, my DH and I went there and loved it!! If you have time check out ‘old vegas’ aka the arts district, and maybe even do the zipline over Freemont st!

    That is a beautiful dress! Please keep it long. It’s so graceful and elegant.  I think you would lose some of that grace and elegance by cutting the dress.

    As for the “high-low” hem that is everywhere this season, I personally think it’s much too trendy to risk doing for your wedding.  You want your wedding pictures to be gorgeous and as timeless as possible so that you will love looking at them for the rest of your life — and your children and grandchildren throughout theirs.  I would recommend enjoying the “high-low” trend for some regular skirts and dresses this season, but not your wedding.

    @VegasBrideOctober2013:  I think it’s lovely the way it is and I think you’ll lose “something” if you cut it shorter. I also wouldn’t do a high-low hemline as I think they’re a bit too trendy. BUT I think if you have a fantastically high slit put over one leg, you’ll still get the elegance of the long dress with the drama worthy of a Vegas wedding 😉

    @VegasBrideOctober2013:  Glad to be of help — and glad to hear that you’ve decided to keep that beautiful hemline! 🙂

    How about cutting it in to a high-low dress so that the front is short and the back is still long? I think that would still be very “Vegas”!

    I’d stay away from trends and just keep the dress in its classic elegant beautiful form! You don’t want people in 40 years looking back at your pictures and thinking what we think now about all the people who got married in the 80’s! Just food for thought. 😛 Love your dress choice though!

    If you plan to wear awesome heels, I’d cut it.  I think it would look great short.  

    But it’s also beautiful how it is…I don’t think you can go wrong!  Congrats!
