My dress was too long. With my heels it was just slightly too long but it was fine, I only had trouble walking up the stairs at the start of the aisle at our ceremony spot. My dad held my bouquet while I walked up the stairs and then handed them to me.

I kicked my heels off right at the end of the ceremony and had zero problems walking in my dress outside for photographs in the mountains. You’ll be absolutely fine on a golf course.

It depends on the style of dress … mine had a tulle bottom and was an inch or two too long. I got a petticoat with a hoop and it pushed the dress out so it wasn’t dragging around my feet. Could be worth a try!

A hoop petticoat would be my recommendation. It will make your dress slightly shorter but far more manageable.

I second the hoop. My dress was too long and it was awful having to walk and carry it up everywhere I went

Does your dress have pick ups? My dress was too long and a combo of heels and hoop got me through the ceromony. For the dance my sister safety pinned more pickups into my skirt.
