I don’t think you’re being silly! I have the same ‘problem’/issue (not that I’m trying to plan a wedding). On one hand we both think it kinda shouldn’t matter, but it still kinda does, so we’d probably go the same way with lifts.

Are they expensive? You could always get them, then ditch them if they turn out to be a pain or you change your mind.

My FI is 0.5" shorter than me. He went out and bought his own, nice, black dress shoes…they don’t have lifts persay, but they do have a thicker sole than tux shoes, which we all know barely graze the ground.

I didn’t want to be all kinds of taller than him, either. I think it’s perfectly acceptable to wear lifts. But you’re only going to be like, 1" taller, right? Instead of buying lifts, just buy thicker soled dress shoes so you’re the same height. Nobody’s going to notice 1" though, I promise! It’s really minor.

Ha, I never had this problem, but I think that putting lifts in your groom’s shoes (especially if he’s open to it) is a brilliant solution.  So long as you agree that they aren’t too obvious or look ridiculous (I’ve never seen this before so I don’t know what it does to the appearance of the shoe or the foot inside the shoe), I say go for it!
