Oh man, is your FI on board with the shoes? Mine would totally not be down with the elevator shoes, haha. But luckily for him I can feel dressed up in flats (probably because I never ever wear heels), but I get why you don’t feel that way,

To be honest, I have to smile each time I see these posts about elevator shoes. Women fall in love with a man just barely taller than them, but they want him to look different on their wedding day.

Everyone knows that if you have heels on, you will be taller than him, then all of a sudden he is taller. How did that happen?

If it doesn’t bother you day to day, why is it such a big deal on your wedding day?

They remind me of Prince haha sorry, but they do. FI would never wear these and I cant say Im a fan either. I would hate to have them showing in pics and people will see him wearing those shoes, since nowadays its so popular to have the foot shots and pics of just the knees down etc…..

Can he walk normally in wedges?  He would need to practice in those heels so he doesn’t walk funny.  (Think of a preteen in her first high heels…)  Will he want to dance all night in them?

Make sure he rents the tux with those shoes, as his regular length pants will look too short.  

I thought this generation was good with the girls being taller in there huge heels.  Otherwise where is the market for these 4+ inch heels?

I’ve joked with FI about it but I think I’m ultimately just going to deal with looking like an Amazon. I’m normally just about 5’7″ (will be wearing 3.5″ heels) and he’s 5’9″. I routinely wear 5″+ heels when going out with him on the weekends so I’m not looking at this any differently. If you have a good photographer they’ll be able to minimize the difference in pictures. If he’s cool with them, though, go for it.

I’m in love with my man at any height. We are basically the same height when I wear flats, too. And everyone gave me such a hard time about wearing heels around him, ruining the pictures, and so forth. 

I was persuaded and commited to wearing flats. However, my dress was just a smidge too long, but the alterations would have been extensive and pricey, so I was actually ordered by my seamstress to wear a heel of about 3 inches.

For the sake of keeping us the same height, my FI embraced wearing an elevator shoe. I compared them to a lot of styles found at Macys or DSW and found them to look almost identical, only with the lift inside. 

I didn’t see the big deal and neither did he. He didn’t think I was trying to change him. We’re naturally the same height anyway, so why not keep that level height? I got to wear my shoes, he got to wear a pair of pretty nice shoes too, and all was well with the world.

The shoes took some getting accustomed to, but eventually they wore in and he actually wore them on the honeymoon!
