this is me on the left with him (no heels)
the thing is.. the taller I am, the more amazing the dress looks
the taller I am, the shorter he would look
soooo.. is it okay to be taller than him on the wedding ??

It’s okay if you’re comfortable with it! I’m about 2.5 inches shorter than my Fiance when we’re barefoot. I opted for flats, but that was for comfort and not height.

@AliaH: You need to ask him that.
As long as you and he are both ok with it, then it’s fine. But if he is uncomfortable with it, then you probably shouldn’t wear shoes that make you taller than him.

I agree with the other posts. If you are both comfortable, go for it. I wouldn’t be comfortable with it because I would worry about the pictures looking “off” because the man is generally taller, but that is just a personal preference. My husband and I have a similar height difference, and I stick with flats or low heels, especially for pictures.

You shouldn’t do it. 3″ is high enough.
I don’t think you should even ask him. Sorry, but a 5’7″ guy in the US is definitely going to be sensitive about his height.
There are enough things to stress about when preparing for a wedding. This is not one of the important ones.

I think I would make sure he is comfortable with it too. Some guys just don’t like it.

You should ask him. I’m a smidge taller than my Fiance in my wedding boots (I’m 5’7”, he’s 5’9”) and he’s thinking of finding boots as well so that he can be taller than me.

It’s entirely your preference as a couple. If you are okay with it and if he is okay with it then it doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks

Well, I’m 5’9″ and Fiance is 5’8″, so we don’t really have an option hahaha. I think you should do whatever makes the both of you the most comfortable 🙂

If he is comfortable with it sure. If you’re concerned you’ll look funny being taller, that isn’t something people are going to notice the day of or in photos.

I’m a good 2 inches taller than my fiance with bare feet. He’s only 5’7, I’m 5’9. I’m wearing 2.5” heels. He doesn’t care. I don’t care. We are who we are. And we’re comfortable with that.
Just make sure he’s comfortable with it.

As long as you both are okay with it it’s fine. He can alwasy get man platforms though- they’re these sole inserts a guy puts in his shoe to gain a few nches. My Fiance is going ot do it, since my heels make me taller than him and our moms freaked out. I think you can get them on Amazon.

I’m 5’6″, my Fiance is 5’8″. He bought me the 3″ heels that I wanted to wear for the wedding. I’d assume he’s OK with it!
Who cares if you’re taller than him in photos–as long as you both look and feel happy, nobody will even notice.

He looks more than three inches taller than you? Go with what your both comfortable with.

As the PP mentioned that is up to your Fiance. I will be three inches taller than my Fiance on our wedding day (and every day for that matter) with heels. He has no issue with this whatsoever.
Some men are bothered by this and become insecure. My cousin’s Fiance demanded that taller woman were short heels as bridesmaids in her wedding so as to not compete with him.
