My Fiance and I are the same height at 5’7. This has never bothered me. I actually appreciate not having to stand on my tippy toes to kiss him and being able to fit into all of his clothes… I have only started feeling sad about this when I look at pinterest or wedding blogs and I see all these gorgeous photos of tall grooms and dainty brides. I know that I am above average heigh but I’m not incredibly tall! I do miss feeling small and delicate (my ex was 6’4…). But My Fiance is 10x the man he was and I wouldn’t trade him for a couple inches of height.
This just means I am not going to get any of those adorable forehead kissing photos or staring up at my groom pictures. So I want to see your wedding photos! I want to see how cute we can look and what poses work the best. Help calm my nerves and I’ll be eternally grateful!

Why can you not get forehead kisses? Height doesn’t seem like a deterrent to them. If you love the man, who cares? 🙂 My cousin and her husband are the same height and she just wore flats and everything was lovely. Plus, men’s dress shoes are typically heeled, so you’ve got a little more height there.

Awww…don’t worry! My husband and I are the same height. I actually just shared my recap and there are a ton of pics that you can look at if you’d like.
Also, here are a few of our engagement pics. Hope this helps give you some confidence in how you are going to look together–I am sure your pictures are going to be beautiful! (PS: Don’t mind the bra-strap–the one’s where it’s edited out is not on this computer, lol)

You can do other things to give him height – you can be sitting, he can be standing. You can do stairs. If youre outdoors, he can stand on logs/rocks/etc.
However, that being said, wouldn’t you rather your pictures look like you guys? You are the same height. That isn’t going to change. Why not just embrace it! Life isn’t pinterest!

We are about an inch off, when he wears his cowboy boots he’s taller. Our photos were still like mind blowingly awesome! I’m actually taller than him in one because I’m standing on a rock. And he still manages to kiss me on the forehead several times a day 😉

I can totally relate! My fiancé is the same exact height as me (well I’m a tiny bit taller but he won’t admit it lol). It used to ‘bother’ me until I realized how silly I was. Trust me height means nothing at the end of the day! If you feel happy with your man then you should be able to look passed his height. Your pictures are going to be as beautiful as the ones you see on Pinterest! I will be wearing flats for our wedding I’m and totally OK with that. We have such a beautiful relationship and I can’t wait to spend the day with my best friend.

OMG! Your wedding pictures are amazing and you make a stunning bride! I saw those yesterday but just assumed you were wearing heals under your dress!
Thank you for all of your kind words! I love my Fiance more than anything and his height doesn’t bother me on the daily. I think it might just be wedding nerves coming out in weird ways.
Here are a few of our engagement photos. I think we look okay! I guess I got a forehead kiss and I don’t look particularly giantesque.. I guess I just needed perspective. Thanks Bees!

Woow, all these gorgeous couples! You all look so nice together, the lack of height different doesn’t distract from the pictures at all! All I see is love! 😉
I am actually 175 cm and my boyfriend is about 11 cm taller than me. Aaaand I happen to have a sweet spot for 11-13 cm heels, so, that’s what I wear, almost every single day, all year around!
So I actually wear shoes that makes me just as tall, -or taller, than him, on purpose! Doesn’t bother me nor him too much, I don’t plan on changeing that, certainly not for our wedding pictures, even if it means that I will be the one kissing him on the forhead. 😉

Girl, you are letting the wedding nerves get to you for sure. You are absolutely beautiful, your Fiance is quite handsome, and together you made a gorgeous couple. If you hadn’t mentioned the height, I wouldn’t have even noticed. Take a deep breath and reframe; this is absolutely nothing to fret over. Also, your engagement photos are awesome!
Oh, & thank you for your kind words about my wedding photos, very sweet of you to say! 🙂

This is my favorite of our engagement photos. No wedding pics yet since we get married 5/5/17. He’s the same height as me, if not a dash shorter. Below is a wider shot so you can see that I’m not scrunched down funny. Your photographer will help position you guys to get great photos you’ll be happy with.

DH is 2 inches taller than me. We did not do anything tricky for our photos, but he looks about 5 inches taller than me in the forehead kiss photos.

- Wedding: April 2018 - Our Backyard
My ex-husband is 6’2″ and I’m 5’10”. My rule was I had to be able to wear heels and the man still be taller than me. That all went out the window when I met the love of my life. He’s 5’6″! I feel silly and he often stands on his tippy toes to kiss me but I try not to let it bother me too much because we are ridiculously happy and in love. He said he loves that I’m taller. I can’t say that I love it- I do feel awkward-but I love him enough that I don’t care. So, I guess my point is that I totally understand what you mean about pics of a dainty bride and her tall, strapping groom. Although I wouldn’t trade my groom for anyone in the world I am curious how our pictures will turn out 🙂
