Ok, so I am really short, or as my clothes labels like to say, petite. Not “little people big world” size, but let’s just say that the 5 foot mark still eludes me. Normally not an issue, I’ve been the same height since 7th grade so I am pretty used to it by now.
However, I was thinking about our wedding party and I just realized, that our flower girl, FI’s youngest girl cousin (9 years old), who is already very close to my height, in all likelihood will be taller than me at the wedding. She is growing like a weed and both her parents are pretty tall…to me.
I love the girl and am really happy she is so excited to be apart of our day. I’m not concerned with the pictures, but just thought it was funny and wanted to share with all of you.
I will probablly be seeing her on Mother’s day, so I’ll make sure to note our height difference!

I am only 4’10” and one time I babysat an 8 y.o. boy who was WAY taller than me! My mom used to drive school bus, and there was a boy in kindergarten that was taller than me too! lol

That’s cute, my sister is 4″6, every one was taller than her too in her wedding, but I was just thinking make sure she wear flat shoes.

Too cute. Are you wearing heels at your wedding? Because you would be taller than her if you were wearing heels!

Lol, that is funny! Glad you’re not worried about it, there really isn’t any reason to be. My niece is super tall too and she wants to wear heels, I was like “um, you’re 7, you have plenty of time in your future for uncomfortable shoes”

That’s cute! My sister is 4’11”, and she’s the first to crack height jokes. All of her bridesmaids were noticeabley tall, even just in general, but it was funnier because of the contrast. I secretly wish the BMs would have been in reverse order so they’d make a V shape in heights! This is one of her favorite wedding pictures —

This is so funny because I am in a similar situation myself. I see that this post is from two years ago. Did your cousin wind up being taller than you at the wedding?
