Me & my fiance are only about 2″ apart in height, I’m going to be wearing kitten heels for the wedding that aren’t very tall at all.. At least that is the plan for now, if I can find some cute sandals between now & September I may very well buy some new ones.

My fiance is about a half an inch taller than me.  I am thinking about wearing flat sandals, but in red, to make it fun.  (Now if I could just find some…)

My Fiance is 2 inches taller than I am. With heels, I am taller than he is. I have opted to wear flats or maybe a low 1 inch heel for the wedding day. I just don’t want to look like I am towering over him in any of our pics. That’s just me though.

Wearing short heels too — if you go to zappos, you can search by heel height. I went for 1.5″ heels. (He’s about 3″ taller than me). I bought dyeables that I will have dyed to match  my Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses, and I’m adding a shoe clip to make them more fun.

My husband is 2 inches taller than me. I wore 2 inch gold dress sandals during photos and the ceremony and we were basically the same height. During the reception I change into flat dress sandals for comfort.

Fiance is “the same height”, but he’s actually 0.25″ taller, according to those science museum height-comparator things.  

I made the mistake of wearing heels to my uncle’s funeral, and of course, my family, being the people that they are, could not resist making “omg he is so short” type comments.  Completely ignoring that I was wearing 2″-3″ heels.  

I know that come wedding day, people are going to be looking for something to gawk about, and I certainly don’t feel like hearing about the “but you’re taller” business, because I’m not.  

I hate wearing fancy shoes anyway, so I’m thinking of wearing a pair of Skechers flats.

Darling Husband is a little bit taller than me. Keeping that in mind I wore shoes without too much of a heel ( I think they were 2 inches or maybe 3).

We’re both short. I was always attracted to very tall/large men. It took me awhile to get used to someone small in stature. But he’s more manly than any of the big hulks I used to date!

I’m 5’1″ and he is about 5’4″.

My Fiance is about a 1/2″ shorter. For the ceremony I am going barefoot and for the recpetion I am just wearing flip flops. Whatever you decide to do make sure you have your dress done to that height. My friend wore heels during her ceremony and then went barefoot during her reception and her dress was dragging on the floor and looked all uneven.

My FH is 2-3” shorter than I am.  On a normal day, I don’t even think about it, but for the wedding….that’s a different story.  I am a shoe-a-holic, especially stilettos, so it was a painful search for me to find shoes that I like that aren’t 4”+!  FH doesn’t mind that I’m taller than him, and really wouldn’t care if I wore huge heels, but I think I would feel weird towering over him in pictures.  I managed to find 3” heels that I like, and I’m going to take them to a shoe repair guy and see if he can takethem down to about 2.5”.  That’s the best I’ve found and I love them!

Fiance is about 2 inches taller than me.  I found the cutest pair of purple flats that i can’t wait to rock on my wedding day.

@morkiemama: I am in the exact same boat. On any normal day, he and I don’t mind that in my stilettos, I am taller.  On my wedding day, everyone has convinced me that it will look off and it won’t be a nice feeling for him. So I have succumbed. LOL.

Still haven’t found a pair but I know they are out there. Was thinking about hand bedazzling a pair of Loub kitten heels…
