    i say no becasue I don’t like the look of the dress being too short when I wear the shoes.  I’m gonna deal with the extra lenghs and sweet the floor with my dress I’m sure.

    I dealt with the extra length towards the end of the night. I didn’t have any issues and people gave me a wide berth on the dance floor. I agree with Atalanta, when people hem the dress a little too short it looks off to me.

    I think it is more important that the dress is the right length for when you are wearing your shoes.

    I cant seem to copy and past anything on here for some reason after I blur out the faces. and this is a friend. but she did the same thing.. she ws only 5’2 hemmed the dress so you could see her gold shoes, and I just feel so bad but it looked awful and looks even worse in pictures. I dont think anyone should be able to see your shoes in a wedding gown unless you lift up our dress, at any time. I would leave it alone for sure!

    Practice the aisle walk with your dress on.

    Mine was just long enough that I had to talk totally upright and keep my posture.  If I slouched, my dress went down with me and I stepped on it.

    Test this out.  Maybe you could just wear a hoop skirt or crinolen underneath.
