I got a text from my friend, who I’m a bridesmaid for, about shoes to wear to the wedding. She said flats or wedges, but that she didn’t want anyone taller than 5’10 (which is how tall she is I think)
Honestly, I prefer flats anyways, but I got a bit of a chuckle out of this. She doesn’t want anyone taller than her on her wedding day?

@memo: That’s a little strange. I am only 5’7” and I will be wearing flats on my wedding day. I wouldn’t care if my BM’s were taller than me. Luckily though, all my BM’s are 3 inches shorter than me, so even with heels, they will likely be shorter.

That’s kind of weird… I guess I can’t understand but I had a bridesmaid that is crazy tall and it never occurred to be to be bothered by it haha

Does everyone have to weigh 5lbs more than the bride too?

@memo: I was told the same thing as I am 5’9″. I was not allowed to wear any heels over 2″ due to the groom’s height.

@likewoah: that literally made me “laught out loud!” For that, I would definitely say “helllllll no!”
Atleast I’m not the only one being told this! I mean, it’s their wedding, so I don’t really care what I wear. I just thought it was kind of weird.

How silly. Who actually has the time to sit around and think about how tall their BMs are going to be?

@ladychatterley: I was wondering where she thought of it too. What magazine/website did she read that the BMs should be shorter than the bride?

@memo: I am the most detail oriented person I know and it never would have occurred to me to think of something so small! lol

Oh dear. I would have to cut my bridesmaids off at the knees to assure they were shorter than me. Good thing I’m not too concerned about that (seeing as I am 5’2″).

@memo: dang if BMs need to be shorter than the bride then I am going to need all children as bridesmaids considering I’m 4’10” lol. Some people think to much about how everything looks when they should be focusing on how the day will feel. Is everyone going to be miserable because of a bunch of rules or are they going to be happy?

To be fair, she already know who her bridesmaids are, and she’s the bride so she can decide what height heels they wear (within reason).
Now if she was not choosing girls as BMs because they were tall, that would be bridezilla-ish. But as it stands, I don’t think it’s an unreasonable request – it’s just worded strangely.

I’m 5 foot 8 – one bridesmaid is 6 foot 1 and the other is 5 foot 11. Doesn’t matter at all!

@paula1248: As I mentioned before, I prefer flats anyways, so it doesn’t actually bother me.
I don’t think the issue is she wants everyone in specific shoes or height of shoes, it’s about the height of us, so I don’t think it is worded weird. She told us we could wear wedges or flats, but no one taller than 5’10. That’s basically the guidlines. some may wear 3 inch wedges while I’ll be wearing flats, since I’m tall.
