I never reached 6′ but I was always THAT girl in school group photos.  I’m sure you know her – she’s in the back row, towering over all the boys…

I’m not going to be any help to you, either.  I’m a bit on the klutzy side, and the venue has hardwood flooring, so I’m wearing flats.

Where’s @MlleFabuleux:?  She always has awesome suggestions!

@ChelseaBells:  I’m 6′!  Have you looked online at Zappos or Nordstrom?  That’s what I did.  In addition to being so tall, I also wear a size 12 shoe, so finding shoes was hard.  Zappos and Nordstrom were the best because you can easily buy and return.

@ChelseaBells:  I have nothing helpful to say other than that I sympathise with you hugely and that I am also dreading the shoe hunt! As a 6foot tall girl I have always dreamed of finding a fantastically tall man so I could wear gorgeous high heels on my wedding day. Instead I have ended up with a man 2 inches shorter so I will be searching everywhere for flats.

I am 6’0″ tall and my guy is only 5′ 5 1/2″ … so it really doesn’t matter what shoes I wear because I’ll still tower over him. I saw some pretty awesome shoes on Nine West that had a 2 1/2″ heel. I think wedge heels are more comfortable in general, so that’s probably what I’ll get ๐Ÿ™‚

@ChelseaBells:  Another Amazon in the house!  6 feet tall and love every minute of it!  Mr. 99 stands a good four inches over me, our wedding was really small and low key so I just wore ballet slippers, comfy, pretty and they look neat in the shadow box I made for our wedding!  Either way, it doesn’t matter much, I’ve got really tiny feet for someone so tall, I wear and 8.5 to 9 size shoe.

I don’t really have many complaints about it, until I run across some asshole who just cannot shut up about how much taller I am than he is…how it’s hurting his neck to look up at me and I must have to bend down to get in the door of most places…blah, blah, blah….that’s about the time Mr. 99 shows up and tells the guy if he’s too small to play, maybe he should get off the field and find the Kiddie Section, then I feel better.

Just under 6 foot…I wore sparkly flats at our wedding so I wouldn’t be the same height at Darling Husband.

I’m 6′ or almost there.  I might have been 5’11 and 1’2 last time I was measured.  I’m wearing blue flats because I’m used to always wearing flats.  Though there definitely are some gorgeous shoes some of the bees on here have for their weddings!

I feel your pain!  I’m the runt of dad’s side of the family at 5’9″, most of the women are right around 6′.   My problem is that I have a 34″ inseam.  So the dress will have to be taken up at the waist, leaving little to nothing to hem.  I’m looking at pretty minimal heels if any.  All the 1-2″ heels just look matronly to me, I feel like I’d look like a little grandmother heading to church on Sunday morning.  At this rate, I’m heading rapidly towards sparkly ballet flats.

I’m 6’1″! I never wear heels, and find them really uncomfortable, so I actually wore a pair of brightly colored, fun flats! Between pictures, the ceremony, dancing, and mingling, we were on our feet so much that I knew i’d hate myself if I wore heels!

Also, ladies – Jcrew.com has really cute, well-made shoes in a bazillion colors, and they come in sizes up to 13 or 14, I believe :-).
