Okay, so I have the Badgley Mischka Salsa heels in teal for my something blue shoes. I LOVE LOVE LOVE these shoes! They’re the most comfortable heels I’ve ever owned and so easy to walk in. I’m in love with them, seriously.
They make me a little bit taller than my fiance, and while it doesn’t bother HIM, it kinda bothers ME. So I had a thought. What if only wear the heels for photos and wear flats (I also have satin-like teal flats) the rest of the time? I would get my dress hemmed to work with the flats and have those be my “actual” shoe, but wear the heels for photos (and possibly ceremony) because I love them more lol. And I’m thinking I could possibly wear the heels even if my dress is hemmed for the flats and it would still look fine because of the way the layering on my dress falls at the bottom.
Does that sound completely ridiculous? The flip side is that I get the dress hemmed for the heels, wear those as my main shoe as long as I can (suck up the height difference and try to ignore it) and when I inevitably take the heels off at some point and switch to flats, be stepping on my dress that’s now a bit too long.
What do you guys think?

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.

We’re at 50/50 on the poll people, keep voting! (for some reason I put a lot of stock in those things lol)

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.
