I have been obsessing over shoes. I hate two pairs that I bought so far that are unreturnable. Grrr…
I love high heels. But my fiance is two inches taller than me. His shoe will have a little heel. So, I want to wear 2.75-3 inch heels. I can’t find any though anyways. I find great 3.5" heels. I need ivory. Anyone find these mythic shoes for under $100? I have burned through my shoe budget already…So I might consider the 3.5" heels that I love. There are so many in fact.
My bridesmaid said though: Do you really want to bend over for your kiss? But I look much better in taller shoes…
So my point: Who’s rocking the heels and is taller than the groom? Share your experiences!!!

With heels on– I tower over him. I’m 5’9” and he’s a little bit over 5’10”.
On my wedding day I’m going to rock it & wear heels. I wear heels almost every day & always when we go out. I can’t imagine changing it up just because we’re going to be photographed! I’m a tall girl… everyone knows it… so why hide it?
Stand tall & be proud! There’s a reason super models need to be a minimum height of 5’8”… 🙂

I could wear 6" heels and he’d still be taller than me… Heck I could stack 2 sets of 6" heels and we wouldn’t even be eye to eye!

Has anyone else noticed how tall women are always with men roughly the same height as they are & shorter women are always with guys who tower over them?

Well, none of those poll answers fit mine! When I wear heels he’s like just a wee bit taller. I don’t see eye to eye with him but he’s still taller- not towering.

I wouldn’t mind if I was taller than my FI, but I’m not, and I’d need pretty tall shoes to get there (I’m about 5′ 11” and he’s 6′ 3”). I just never have worn heels in my life, and I’m not going to start anytime soon. Flats for me!

In my 2 1/2 inch heels, he’ll still be a couple of inches taller than me.

I live in NYC, and with all the walking I do (I’m not one to rock the sneakers flip flops to work look), I usually keep my heels around 2 inches. Very helpful – since my fiance is two inches shorter than me before I put any shoes on.
I would love to wear colored shoes, but I can’t seem to find anything that I love (or even like) in less than a 3 inch! I tried a three inch heel ‘just to see’, stood next to him…and we both felt ridiculous. Who knew that one inch would make such a difference!

- Wedding: August 2018 - Oakland Manor
Mr.D is over a foot taller than I am, not to mention my bridal party is all at least 4 inches taller than me and most of the groomsmen are over 6 feet tall. I had to find 4 inch heels so we could all be in the same photos and I won’t look like the odd person out. Or in just head shots it won’t be my head and everyone elses toroso, neck and head. arg.

My husband is taller than me by about 3-4 inches. He actually asked me not to wear super tall shoes to the wedding because he "didn’t want to look like Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes" in our wedding photos. 😉 I wore a pair that were 2 inches tall, much shorter than I might have chosen, so that I could maintain our height difference.

I’m 5’1" on my tall days so idk if I will wear heels–there’s no hope of me looking tall so I’d rather be comfy. Flip flops it is!

My fiance will still have almost a foot on me with my wedding heels!

I’m 5’2 and FI is 5’10 so I’m free to wear what I like but, will probably opt for cute flats for comfort.

I’m about 5’6 and he’s almost an even 6 so He’ll still have a few inches on me even though I’m shopping for 3-4 inch heels. He never stands up straight though so we’ll practically be eye to eye, hehe.
