@jaded_chick19:  Honestly, I don’t think most people will even be able to see your shoes, but I would think that alterations would be able to fix the length.  Did you order a special hem to hollow length?  Usually dresses are long enough for taller brides.  I’m 5’7″ and I’m wearing 4.25″ heels and my dress just touches the floor.

If you had planned ahead, you could have ordered a dress with extra fabric allowance to give you enough fabric for heels.

I’m 6’1″ and was easily able to find a dress. You’re only 2 inches taller than the average woman – if you can’t wear heels, all of us who are actually tall would have not been able to get dresses at all!

I would wear flats. Other option is to alter the dress to tea length and wear heels

with a modest 2-3″ heel, how short is it? From what I’ve read, 1/2 – 1″ off the floor will allow you to walk without kicking the skirt out in front of you…

I’m in the same boat only I’m almost 5’9″. With flats, my dress just touches the floor. Flats it is, I suppose…

@jaded_chick19:  That’s crazy! Five foot seven isn’t even that tall. I have a hard time believing that a standard dress is only 5’9″ without heels. Anyway, I think you should just wear flats. I don’t like the look of a dress raised up off the floor.

I love heels, they make me feel sexy so i know why you want heels and if you want them go for it. Ive seen brides wear their skirt a little off the floor and never thought anything of it.

Try it on with flats. Try it on with heels. See which one you like better. Post pics so we can vote, if necessary.
