    I am the same height as my FI and have the same situation as you – he doesn’t care at all, but I do.

    I personally am wearing flats the whole time.

    I’m thinking of wearing heels and changing to flats for dancing after dinner.  My FI is taller than me but with heels I might be at his height so I think I’m going with a shorter heel than I normally would and then come dancing time change into flats.

    As long as your dress wouldn’t look too short if you got it hemmed to flat length then I would do that so you don’t have to worry about t being too long when you make the switch.

    Well, the easiest time to do a shoe change-out would be before the reception, since you don’t want to tote an extra pair of shoes to the ceremony. Are you okay being a little taller than your FI in all your ceremony photos? If it bugs you to be taller in photos, I feel like the ceremony photos are when the height difference would be most noticeable. 

    I would probably just commit to one height of shoe. Maybe you could wear flats but change into the blue shoes for just a few key couple photos? Either that, or just rock the blue heels the whole time…there’s nothing wrong with being a little taller than your  FI in heels!

    @BeeEuphoric:  I think it depends on how much the height bothers you.  For me, I would want to be shorter than my groom in my pictures (I love big, tall guys), so I probably wouldn’t do heels.  I say probably because if I really loved the heels, it’d be hard for me not to buy them lol.  I fell in love with a pair of 4.25″, super comfy, heels and they’re so fun to wear.
