Sounds like it was her mistake and honestly, I’d have them order a new dress.

@Irishb: Is it possible to get similar shoes without a high heel? I understand that she told you to order a petite dress, however it will be your words against hers and more than likely they will ask you to pay for it again…

I actually ordered the petite length too, but b/c I wanted to wear flats.  I agree, heels do help your posture and seem more elegant, but I thought being comfortable on my big day was more important to me.  This is what I ended up with.  You can’t see the black soles as much in person… but they give me a little bling 🙂

@Irishb: sorry I don’t remember what store I had them shipped from.  Just google “glitter flats” and a bunch should pop up 🙂

also, try websites: 6pm.com, endless.com, shoes.com, I searched those relentessly…

They should be able to drop that bubble hem down for you and if needed sewing in fabric up there in its place to keep the bubble, accomodating for your curent shoe height. I think you should take the dress elsewhere and ask them to drop  the hem. It’s really not that of a big deal.

I’m 5’5” as well and I kind of wish I got the petite size but my consultant never mentioned it. The hem alone is costing me $250 and I’m wearing a 1 ½” heel. Did the salon have you sign anything stating you were aware of the size you were buying (it would be part of the receipt)? If so, there’s probably nothing you can do.

As for finding shoes, you can check endless.com. Endless shoes are also found on amazon. Just put in the name of the shoe on amazon’s search and you can usually find them and sometimes for less than endless.com (plus free shipping!).

 Not sure if this link will work but I did a search for silver flats on endless.com.
