    I would love to have a petite board…and if there’s a petite board there should be a tall board too!  I think being tall or petite definitely poses certain issues and challenges that we all have talked about and will still want to address in a specific board.

    I think a tall board is great! And I love the idea of a petite board, I just want to say that over here, petite is also used to describe weight (think size 0 model) so if there was an option I’d rather have separate boards for both. My MOH is petite (both height and size wise!) and it’s proving to be super difficult to find something for her to wear to the wedding. 

    But it’s totally a niche that needs to be filled and who better to cater to tall brides or petite brides than WeddingBee?

    I voted ‘neither’ this morning, but I must have misread the poll, because I thought it said “Would you use these boards”, not “Should we add these boards”. Sorry Scissors – I think adding them is great, but I wouldn’t use them. I’m average height and weight for the US. 🙂

    I think they are a great idea.  I wouldn’t use either of them since I’m middle height.

    At 5’10… I would absolutely use the tall board and with two of my bridesmaids under 5 feet and less than a size zero, I would use the petite board too! It’s odd how many concerns come up for people that don’t fit into the “average build” department.

    I’m petite, but I still think that most of the petite and tall issues concern the dress and that the dress category is a fine place for these posts… I feel like the segmenting based on specific qualities will eventually go too far (do I see a red-head board, leftie board, etc…) and there are already tons of categories.

    Just my opinion.

    D’oh! I clicked “Tall Board” right away & didn’t see that “both” was an option. I’m the loser that voted for a tall board and not a petite board (Sorry ladies!!)

    I’m PRO BOTH boards! 🙂 lol

    Curious- How tall is tall and how tall/short is petite?

    I would think if you have to buy long/x-long jeans or short jeans in my case a petite wedding dress, that might classify you as one of the two categories. Just my opinion though.
