I’m 5’8.5″ and my fiancé is 6′.  When I wear my typical 4-5″ heel, I am taller than him by a little bit.  When we take photos together, we often use some sort of optical illusion to make him appear much taller than me.  I would never forsake the heels and will be wearing them on my wedding day.  If I’m a bit taller than him in some photos–so what?

I’m 5’8″ and my Fiance is 5’6″.  I am wearing flats (ok, they have a 1 inch heel) for the wedding.  I did find it challenging finding a pair of flats that I really liked.

I am 5’10” but thankfully he is 6’3″.  I will have no problem wearing heels and still looking like tiny in comparison.  Thank goodness for o-lineman size men! 🙂

I don’t consider myself tall (I’m 5’6″), but I am taller than Fiance by about an inch.  I found a super cute and comfy baby blue peep toe flats (could I get any more adjectives in this sentence?) based on a rec from another bee who is wearing the same pair.  FI hates it when I wear heels.

I just choose to ignore it. I love my shoes to much to give them up so we will just be working it.

I’m taller, but it doesn’t bother us.

However, when we took our engagement photos, our friend had us pose for one shot to make him look taller. It doesn’t look right to me.

Im about 5’9/5’10 and my husband is 5’8. Its noticable in pictures, but whatever. I wore flats, mostly because even though I wanted some amazing heels, I knew my feet would kill me and I would be affraid of falling.  I found some simple flats on dessy.com and then put a gagillion crystals all over them to jazz em up. The cute flats are hard to find, but they arent impossible… you just have to be dilligent. Heres a pic of us on our wedding day…you can kinda see the height difference. 

And here are the shoes I made. 🙂

I’m 5’11” and he’s 5’6″ or 5’7″ I dont know how tall he is exactly. After almost 5 years I don’t even notice the different that much anymore.

I was going to wear some shoes with a 2-3″ heel but they made my dress look too short so I returned them and will find some nice flats.

@soontobekatieb: Those shoes are GORGEOUS!  And I don’t think the height difference is that noticeable in your pic, remarkably considering the actual difference.  Did your shoes come with that pretty green bow on them as well?

Well I’m 1/2″ taller than my husband but I never think it looks weird–it’s only 1/2″. I can wear up to 2″ without feeling weird about it. After that, it’s just uncomfortable to hold his hand or feel feminine if i’m all dressed up. I’m already 5’11”.

That being said, i wore some cute flat sandals because I didn’t order my dress in a long length. I’m not a heel person, nobody saw my shoes, and i didn’t want to be bitching about how bad my feet hurt by 8pm =].

I am only about 3 inches shorter than my husband so I decided to wear 1″ heels at our wedding.  They were high enough to still feel like heels but not so high I was taller than him. 

I loved shopping for shoes on Zappos and Endless By The Way because you can sort by shoe height!

You can kinda see my shoe in this picture
