    I feel like low heels+knee lenght dresses is a super unflattering look.

    do you really care if they look taller than you? it doesn’t mean they’ll be stealing your thunder or anything.

    @frescalini:  I see your point, but I say pick your battles. This is not a fight worth fighting.

    I see where you’re coming from, but from their point of view it may seem like you’re choosing very unflattering, modest looks that stray from how they envision themselves being seen at the ceremony and in photos. Your choices are completely logical, but it may be a matter of give a little, get a little 🙁

    I do think that trying to dictate your bridesmaids shoes so that they won’t be taller than you is a little silly. That said… it sounds like you have a very unsympathetic, unsupportive group on your hands. Are these women really your closest friends? Because it sounds like all they care about is how cute they look, not supporting you on your wedding day.

    As someone who would need 5 inch heels and barefoot bridesmaids to be taller than some of my girls, I think asking them to wear shorter heels just so they won’t be taller than you is crazy. I think set a “formality” level for the heels and let them go for it. At the end of the day, no one is going to pay attention to what the bridesmaids wear on their feet.

    You’re the bride, it’s your day, your rule. If they are your friends, they’ll just suck it up and do it for YOU.  Heck…Just tell them ALL to wear ballet flats….if i were you, I’ll even pay for their dresses and shoes so there’s no argument.
