I’m almost 5’9″ and he’s about 5’6″. He used to be super sensitive about it and it made me feel kinda weird. I know he never ever thought he would end up with a woman who is taller than him, but he knows it’s worth it Wink. I’m almost done feeling weird about it, but I definitely always wear flats around him. He thinks it’s funny that I rock heels every time I go out with my girlfriends.

@soontobekatieb – those shoes are freaking killer! I think you could go into business, I’ll be your first customer!

I am 5’11” but luckily Fiance is a bit taller, at 6’2″. I’ll still be wearing flats on our wedding day, though. 🙂

I’m also about a half inch taller than my husband.  His dress shoes make him about an inch taller.  I wore a 1″ wedge, so I was still about half an inch taller than him on our wedding day.  The slight wedge I felt gave me better posture and an overall “leaner” look than flat-flats, and that was more important to me for the pictures than being slightly taller than him.  In this picture you can tell, but for the most part because of the different angles, you couldn’t tell that I was a little taller:

I am between 5’10” and 11″, but my Fiance is taller at 6’1″ or 2″ (not totally sure). I usually feel fine wearing heels up to 3 inches, but I will be wearing flats for my wedding, for the same reason as ejs! I didn’t order extra length on my dress.

I’m 5’8″ and Darling Husband is 5’7″. I wore 2.5″ heels on our wedding day and changed into flats for the reception. It bothered me originally but I really didn’t notice at all in the pictures when I got them back.

I’m about 5’8 and fi is around 5’5, it really doesn’t bother us. That being said I don’t like little heels…when I wear heals they’re usually 4 inches (and I do wear them around him under normal circumstances) so for the wedding I’ll be wearing flats or else I would tower over fi AND our officiant. I’m in the process of bedazzling some simple open toed flats. But for the rehearsal I’ll be rockin the heels!

Im 5’9 and Teddy is about 5’9 also..but i really think he is about 5’8.5….haha. anywhoo…I definately wear flats for the most part….but like some have said…when I go out with my girls…I wear some BANGIN heels. haha. I still like to wear them occasionally because they make me feel hot…but when Im 3 inches taller than Teddy I really dont like it! So when we go anywhere together Im usually in flats.

With that said….I am definately wearing FLATS for the wedding! If I wear heels my dress will be too short and then they would have to add extra length which would mean extra $$$. So that has pretty much made my decision for me.

I have already bought these for the wedding but might still buy a few other pairs before i make my final decision! :

I am 6’0 and Fiance is all of 5’8″. It doesn’t bother us but I have gotten odd looks from other people but that is their issue. I’m not wearing heels but it’s mostly because I can’t walk in them.

I’m about 3″ taller than my husband and it doesn’t bother either one of us (why should it?).  I wore flats for the wedding.  Of course you can tell I’m taller in the pictures but so what?  I AM taller – that’s who we are and how we look and I loved our pictures!

My FH is about 5’7″ and I’m about 5’6″ so with heels really of any sort I’m taller than him. But good news for me….I hate heels anyway, they’re uncomfortable to me.  Do I love looking at them?  Yes, but then I take them off about 10 minutes afterwards.  So I’m wearing flats for my wedding 🙂  Also the ceremony is on grass, so I would have sunk in anyway!  But no matter what, your pictures will look great because you will be so beautiful and glowing with happiness.  Height won’t matter!

Darling Husband is 6’1″, i’m 5’7″

all my heels are usually 4 inches, so i’m right about his height usually… i think my wedding heels were 3.5 inches…

@sarahberah:

That is the same gap between my FH and me. I am 6′ and he is 5’8″. We do not, however, seem to get stares or comments from other people. Furthermore, it’s no big deal to us.

Like you, I cannot walk in a heel with more than an inch (maybe a wedge.)

As of now I do not know what shoes I will be wearing, but I can assume I will not gain any more than half an inch.

I am about 2 inches shorter than my husband – I didn’t want to wear heels though because I wanted to feel extra petite next to him..I wore flats and this is how it ended up looking in terms of height..also here are a pic of my shoes i went with..

I’m 5’9 (5’10 on a tall day- does anyone else seem to have those?) but Mr. Dear is 6’2.  I still haven’t decided what kind of shoes to wear, but definitely not because of any height issues! I would wear the hell out of the shoes @soontobekatieb: made, though!
