I’m 6’2″ and any guy I’ve ever seriously dated has always been taller then me. Shorter guys a lot of time don’t even register as being guys too me. If that makes any sense. FH is 6’4″ and we get comments all the time about our height.  Honestly I forget I’m tall most the time since I’ve 6’0″ since I was 13!

I’m 5′ 11″ and had always dated taller guys, but I fell head over heels for my 5′ 7″ Fiance and have never been happier.  Unfortunately that means I am going to miss out on all of those gorgeous wedding shoes.  I’m consoling myself with some super-comfy flats for the wedding and some killer heels for the bachelorette party.

I’m 5’10” and actually the shortest one in my family!  My FH is the same height as me in stocking feet, so I’m going with ballet flats and he’s looking for tux shoes with a little extra sole. πŸ™‚

I’m 5’8″ and 125 and I’m the short fat one in my family (yea…my brothers are like 6’5″ and 170 grrr!) My man is 5’9″ so I’m looking for ballet flats with ribbons to tie around your legs for my wedding-day shoes πŸ™‚ i’m super excited.  I do wear heels sometimes and I enjoy being taller than him (and like all of my other friends).  It’s fun πŸ™‚

@smitha5 – I wonder if I can get mine to agree to that!  Somehow, I doubt it. πŸ™‚

 

@duck – It’s good to know I’m not alone in that!

We’re also having to be a little creative with the processional, etc. since my 6’1″ sister looks rather strange standing next to the 5’7″ best man. 

I always thought I’d end up with someone taller, but most of the men I’ve dated have been about my height, some an inch or so shorter.  I think when we first started dating and I would wear heels it bothered him, but now he’s over it.  Thank goodness – I love my heels.  Just not for the wedding!

I am 5’9″ and the Fiance is 5’8″. Although he has never outright said he would prefer me not wear the huge heels I love, I know he likes when we are closer to the same height. I could not bring myself to wear flats for the wedding, however, so I got “short” 2″ heels and we kid that he’ll need lifts in his shoes. 

I don’t think I have ever dated anyone shorter than me, but when it’s right, you just know. It’s an easy thing to overlook when it’s such a non-issue with us. And I’m glad he is comfortable with it – some guys aren’t. (One more way to know he’s a keeper!)

Congrats to all you other height blessed ladies out there!

I’m 5′ 10″ and my Fiance is 5′ 11″.  So I will be wearing flats for our wedding.  He actually usually wears thicker shoes than me so he seams even taller.

I’m 6’0-1″ (slouch matters) and the man is 6’2″. Aside from my boyfriend in high school (who was the same height as me at the time) he is the shortest guy I ever dated. My average used to be 6’5″+ because I do NOT like towering over my guy.

That said, I’m wearing ballet flats like so many other of the tall Bees.

I’m 5’8″ and so is my husband!! it would be nice if he was a little bit taller – but eh what can ya do? I am actually very particular about my shoes mainly because I have very sensitive feet. I would LOVE to be able to wear heels, but I can’t mainly because after about 10 minutes in heels, my feet feel like sandpaper and I want to die. πŸ™

So I bought some GORGEOUS flats and dyed them orange – and I plan on buying ballet flats for the reception.

course the nice thing is – we can look each other straight in the eye!

 

But – as you can tell, here, I am just slightly taller by like a half inch…
