Yeah, I would say that the heels are too high for the dress. But hey, its an opportunity for a new pair of shoes!!!

Sounds like you need a new pair of shoes, do you have room in your budget? If you don’t, maybe you could borrow some from a friend?

I’m deliberately having my dress hemmed a little on the shorter side.  My seamstress tried to talk me out of it but when I tried to walk down the hallway, part of the skirt slipped up between my feet and I almost fell flat on my face.  She agreed after that oh so graceful episode.  

I’m also more than likely changing from 4.5″ heels to some super cute little flats at some point during the reception so I didn’t want every guest stepping on and potentially ripping my tulle dress.  I also don’t mind the idea of my little pink heels peeking out from under the hem of my dress, but I’ve always had to be firm with seamstresses when having other dresses hemmed before.  They all thought I wanted it too short.

If you really don’t like the way it looks, it may be just a matter of a half inch that could make the difference, which may still be feasible even if the dress hasn’t been cut.  If you plan to ditch the shoes during the reception, do try walking around in it barefoot at your next fitting and see how it works.  You may not need new shoes afterall.
