When we are barefoot FI is taller than me by about an inch. My dress on the other hand is made for 5’9" (extra charge for ordering it shorter, and due to design difficult/impossible to hem). This will require me to wear low heels (about 1"-1.5"), and it will make me taller than my groom 🙁 Is it completely nutty that I am worried about how that will look in pictures? He said he did not have a problem wearing lifts, and we even found some online. Is this us being silly, or do people really do this?

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!
