My hubby (yay) is 5ft6 whilst I’m 5ft10. It was never an issue for us, and by now we actually love our height difference. I often notice however how rarely you see couples where the women is taller, especially in wedding pictures, and often see bees worry about shoes and being ‘too tall’ for their man. I know a lot of women who don’t even reply to a man who is shorter than them when they message them on a dating website. People seem to feel really strongly about this! (Go on tinder and most men mention their height…)
Hubby and I met online, and if I had ruled him out based on his height, I would have missed out big time. Being with a shorter guy isn’t at all like people imagine: yes, he’s still my ‘strong shoulder’ when I need it, he will take me in his arms and he is indeed the big spoon every night when we fall asleep! In fact – it doesn’t actually matter most of the time – we even did a dance course and a wedding dance that was great.
I would like to share some of our wedding photos with you guys, to show that size doesn’t matter after all and that a taller bride and a shorter groom can still look great together. And I was even wearing a 2.5 inch heel!
I would love for you to share your pictures of taller brides or other ‘non-traditional’ couples that you rarely see in photos.
And as a bonus or cake topper, where hubby stands on a book… our guests thought this was hilarious!

Everything is gorgeous, you, your dress, the fall colors, and your groom is adorable!
I always feel like women with shorter partners end up looking statuesque and model-ish next to them!

i have a few female friends who are taller than their husbands. they are all, like you, in the 5’9″ to 6′ range.
i am 5′ on the dot. i, personally, did not want to date or marry someone shorter than me.

Cute! It’s hard for people to get over the idea that men should have traditional masculine qualities such as strength and height and women should be delicate and smaller and be under the protection of a man. This is hand in hand with the idea that men are entitled to and should outearn their female partners while women should caretake men and their children in exchange for the protection and financial security of marriage. Well, F all of that!

Love this! I’m a few inches taller and I absolutely plan on and was requested to rock some killer heels on our big day.

Love this! Gorgeous pictures, and a gorgeous couple! Not exactly the same, but husband and I are pretty much the exact same height, and it’s never bothered us that he’s not taller! (In fact, it’s nice for being eye-to-eye, and for kissing! Lololol)

Love the photos! My son is short and I always say if a woman dismisses him because of height, she’s not worth it. You guys are super cute!
