I’m planning on wearing a tea length dress and flats. I’m 5’2″ on a good day and my SO is over 6′. I don’t think it looks weird at all.

Judging by your icon picture, you and I have the same wedding shoes. Hey Lady “At Tiffany’s”, right? 

Their shoes run SO small. I had to return the first pair b/c they were 1/2 size too small, and even the new ones were snug. 

Start by putting rubbing alcohol on the insides and then wearing them around the house with thick socks on. It sounds crazy, but I promise they will loosen up after just a few times. 

You could also take them to a shoe repair place and they will stretch them for you and help you pick out cushions for the balls of the feet if you need them. 

Hope that helps! You sound like me… I’m too stubborn to give them up!

I think you could go down to a cute pair of kitten heels and pull it off.  That height is so sweet and retro and would look smashing with a tea length dress.  I actually had a tea-length skirt that I used to wear (back in my skinny days, lol) with the sweetest kitten heels and I always got compliments on them.  🙂  For reference, I’m 5′ 1/2″, and I would much rather be comfortable than tall on my wedding day!

I agree comfort is the way to go!! I originally wanted to get some mary jane kitten heels or peep toes to go with my tea length dress but ended up finding some glitter and lace high heeled peep toes but I think I’m definitely going to look for some ballet flats to wear with the gown at the reception for when my toes get tired!
