Do what you want… if you want heels and don’t mind being taller, then wear heels. I’m sure you’ll look gorgeous either way.

I don’t know about your guy, but my husband’s dress shoes for the wedding actually had a rather substantial sole on them, so even though he’s only an inch or so taller than me and I wore 3 inch heels, we still somehow ended up around the same height.

That said, there’s nothing wrong with wearing heels and being taller than him as long as he doesn’t mind!

My Fiance and I are right around the same height so I chose 3″ heels instead of my normal style of 5″ platforms. I’ll be taller than him but not by much. It was my decision, he didn’t really care. I think it’s up to what you as a couple are comfortable with. Personally though, I say rock the heels! ๐Ÿ˜‰

It’s your choice, they do have some low heels like these…http://www.shoes.com/en-US/Product/17764-5162145/Dyeables/White/Women's+Willow.aspx (This one I do not think is cute, but its an example haha) http://www.shoes.com/en-US/Product/17775-5162152/Dyeables/White/Women's+Kim.aspx http://www.shoes.com/en-US/Product/16201-5118757/Touch+Ups+by+Benjamin+Walk/White/Women's+Phoebe.aspx

 

That way you arent OVERTOWERING him, but you still have a heel.

Do you mind being taller? Does your fiance mind? And last question, how big will your hair be? I only ask because wedding hair can tend to be a lot taller (depending on the hairstyle) than regular hair and can also add inches.   If it doesn’t bother you, then go for the heels.  I think it’s all about personal taste. I wear flats all the time and would love to for my wedding (i’m changing into flats for the reception) but to save myself the cost of having my dress hemmed, I’m wearing 3 inch heels so I’ll end up only being an inch shorter than my fiance. When I wear really tall heels I am taller than my fiance, which I don’t like but it also puts me over 6′ which I also don’t like, so I tend to stick with 3 inches or less, but that’s my personal taste.  No one will probably really care if you are taller it’s whatever you’re comfortable with.

I am 6ft and FH is about 5’9″/5’10”, so even flatfooted with him in shoes, I am taller than him. I occasionally feel a bit paranoid about it, particularly if we are out and I am in larger heels, but he doesn’t mind it (except when I purposely stand over him and tease him for being short! lol). I think he kinda likes having a tall bird on his arm ๐Ÿ˜‰

Originally I was planning on wearing Irish dancing soft-shoes, so completely flat. I figured with me in completely flat shoes and him in dress shoes it would even us out a little. But then I realised they’d be uncomfortable all day, and I found nice bridal shoes I liked so I have ended up with heels! I stuck to a lower heel though – about 2 inches, so I am not dwarfing him too much. He is happy with me wearing them, so that’s all that matters!

I am still considering bringing a couple yellow pages for him to stand on tho ๐Ÿ˜›

Mr. LK is almost a foot taller than mne, so I chose to wear heels. However, for our photos in the grass, myu heels sunk right into the ground. I might as well have been wearing flats. And once the ceremony was over, you can bet that I changed into ballet flats. Heels, pretty as they are, just were not conducive to being a social butterfly. And being social mattered more to me than wearing heels.
