if you are comfortable with it, it is your day, so do whatever makes you happy!!!!! however…

i am 6’1 and Fiance is 6’2 and a half…..my head is also a lot bigger than his…Now, on normal days, I LOVE LOVE LOVE wearing heels, and he loves it as well…

However, I was really concerned about having heels and being taller than him for our pictures, and also about my head looking so much bigger than his BECAUSE im wearing high heels…for this reason,  i went on a mad hunt to make sure that i didn’t get any more than a one inch heel (I was even thinking about doing ballet flats just to make sure!!!)

Fiance didnt pressure me either, he would have been fine if I brought home 6 inch Jimmy Choos for the wedding day, (lol) but we both discussed that for various reasons, we dont want to hear the “oh, your girl is taller than you” comments…

but again, do what you wish, just think how the comments will affect you on your day. I know I am pretty sensitive, so hearing even ONE comment on that day would probably send me over the edge…

if its not goign to bother you, then go for what you want! 🙂

Aw, try not to worry about what people will say or even think!  The last thing you need to worry about is the shoes, or being uncomfortable all night because you’re in heels that are killing you.  Most of your guests have seen you guys together, so they know there’s a height difference, right?  So, it is what it is!  Its like you’re 3’5″ and he’s like 7’6″, then people might talk (wrongfully of course).  But I’ve seen height differentials more than yours and all I’ve thought is, “Wow, he’s much taller” and I keep it moving, its no biggie.

I say where whatever you want, esp. what you are comfortable in!!

My Fiance is 6’8″ and I am 5’2″ and I bought shoes with 4.5″ heels. But I wear heels a lot and am comfortable in them. Ultimately, you should wear what you are comfortable in!!

If you found shoes that your are comfortable in AND you love – don’t fret, just wear them!! 🙂

Besides, ideally, everyone who is attending your wedding will know and love you guys for who you are, and none of this younger looking/height thing will matter – you are marring the man you love!!!   Side note – as a 30 something bride – enjoy the “young looking” comments for as long as humanly possible!!! LOL

I say wear what makes you comfortable. You’ll look fantastic either way–I’m sure no one will be focusing on height!

Hey date twin! My Fiance and I have a pretty big height difference as well, but if you feel most comfortable wearing flats then go for it! Everyone will be so busy being happy for you two, mingling with others, and enjoying themselves that they shouldn’t make rude comments on your big day! Plus, everyone there will already know you so definitely no unnecessary remarks should arise. 🙂

Weddingbee is definitely amazing! The community here is fantastic…

I am with the others on this, do what makes you feel comfortable. My cousin got married last year and his bride was almost 2ft shorter than him, but all we were paying attention to was how in love they were and how beautiful the ceremony was.
