Hi!

I'm currently getting my dress fitted for our wedding at Manchebo Resort in Aruba! Our ceremony will be on the beach, so I will be barefoot. However, our reception will be under a gazebo, so I plan on wearing 4-inch heels. Has anyone else gotten married barefooot, and then wore heels for their reception? 

 

My question is, what length am I supposed to alter my dress? Am I supposed to alter it to the length of me being barefoot, or me wearing heels? I don't want the dress to be too long while I'm walking down the aisle and risk tripping! Is it weird to have my heels show if my dress is too short? HELP!

 

Thanks!

Sophie

Hi. I did things the other way around lol I got married in heels, then switched to white "Bride" flip flops afterwards so I was worried about tripping over my dress after the fact. the way they hemmed my dress was a little "shorter" for my heels, which were open toed gold sandals, in the front and shortened the train just a bit so that when I bustled my dress after the ceremony it was a tiny bit longer than the front. it worked ok in that it was short enough that I didn't trip in the flip flops but it was still long enough that it did get dirty around the bottom unfortunately. my open toes showed just a little walking down the "aisle" but still looked nice. if you're doing coloured heels, it should be fine if it's just a tiny bit shorter so that you don't trip while you're barefoot. hope that helps....

I had the same problem, until I found my dress! It is a high low gown, so the length can stay the same regardless! I'm planning to wear heels all the way, but I'm bringing a gorgeous pair of sandals in same color as heels (royal blue and silver), just in case my feet ache to much...

 

Here is my dress:

I am having my dress altered to fit me barefooted (as that is how I will be walking down the aisle).  For my reception I am taking advantage of this being a beach weeding and wearing 3 inch wedges and I don't thin anyone is going to notice my the length in the dress.

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
