Other than your MOH, just put the rest in height order shortest to tallest. maybe that would help. But it isn’t a big deal! all eyes will be on you and your groom as it should be.

@OnceUponATime:  it’ll be ok! My bridesmaids range in height from 5’0″ to 5’9″. I am 5’3″ and my MOH is 5’9″. Don’t give it a second thought. It’s working out for me that my MOH doesn’t want to look gargantuan and is going to try and find flats and my shortest (my sister who will stand on the other side of my MOH!) wants to wear giant hooker shoes. ^.^

This is silly. They are your friends/ family. Don’t worry about how tall they are. No one else will…

My girls range in height from 5’1″ to 6’0″. Of all the things I could worry about on the wedding day, the height differences in my bridesmaids will not be one of them 🙂

 

Just relax and enjoy the day!

@OnceUponATime:  i wouldn’t worry about it too much.  as for the pictures, i prefer the bp pics where they aren’t all in a row anyways.  i like some sitting, some standing, some turned, some more forward, etc.   it will give it some dimension.

They are your friends, not props for a picture. They will not look a “haggard mess,” they will look like “the people you care deeply about.” Love them for exactly who they are and don’t worry about their height differences.

@OnceUponATime:  Don’t stress, it really doesn’t matter.

No one has ever been at a wedding and commented “would you believe that the bride had the audacity to pick BM’s of such different heights?  What a jerk!”  Never.It will never happen.

Excuse me?

Slang or no slang, they were the words you chose. I (and the rest of the Bees) can only respond to what you write. Whatever you meant by it, my post says that they are your friends and will look beautiful standing next to you on your wedding day regardless of how similar or dissimilar their heights are. That is a nice thing to say.

It makes no sense whatsoever to post a comment on an online board and then get annoyed when people respond to what you say.
