You two look fantastic the way you are.  I probably wouldn’t opt for sky-high heels if I were you, but I would find it a lot weirder that he was wearing big shoes than you were taller than him if I were a guest.

Don’t worry about it. I’m a tad bit taller than my Fiance and I’m wearing 3″ heels. I feel like everyone knows how tall I am and I like being tall….why hide it?

I would think people would notice if all of a sudden he were taller than you on your wedding day.

i wouldn’t sweat it…you are who you are, and the people coming to your wedding love you no matter what. 

i agree, that all of a sudden him being taller, would be like the white elephant in the room…that everyone notices, and whispers about but nobody says anything.

rock some flats, be comfortable and don’t worry about it 😉

I’m 3″ taller than my Fiance.  I got little 3/4 heels, then its on to flip flops.  Either way I’m going to look taller him.  I had people asking me if I was going to let my hair be taller than him too.  My answer is “duh, yes”!  Don’t worry about it.  Like you said, its just who you are and know one will care.

Who gives a crud! You guys are cute and who cares. Plus a man in heels is never a good idea.

@mwitter80: Agreed!

I am only an inch shorter than my Fiance and with my wedding heels I will be 3″ taller. I live in high heels so this isn’t anything new. For some it bothers them but it doesn’t bother me and doesn’t bother my Fiance so oh well!

Rock the heels if you wan’t or wear flats, either way it is what makes you feel comfortable…don’t worry about the height issue. If you ARE concerned than you can take off your shoes in pictures (my plan) to eliminate some of the difference.

You guys are so CUTE! Don’t worry about it.

My grandmother cried when my dad proposed to my mom b/c my mom is taller than my dad, and she cried b/c she thought my mom couldn’t wear high heels anymore.

My mom wore heels to her wedding. And she still does. And noone cares that she is taller.

1st off – you guys are so adorable together!

2nd — I say whatever your style is, rock it. If you love your heels, wear them. If you love flats or flip flops instead, wear them. Everyone knows your height difference so it is what it is.

Embrace your height and if that’s all you have to worry about, I think many people would be jealous of that.

Best of luck 😉

I have a similar issue, I like heels, but when I wear them I’m way taller. He loves it. Says he doesn’t care how tall I end up being on the wedding day, he says its sexy to score a taller gal that said I opted for my lovely lady heels like always.

I’m taller than Mr. CP by about an inch, and I wore shoes with a very low heel on our wedding day (cowboy boots) only because they were practical and aesthetically proper for a Montana wedding. Just be who you are! 🙂

I’m taller and I’m wearing heels. Not a big deal. 

The onlytime height comes up is when we discuss whether our baby will be a boy or a girl, and how he hopes our boys don’t get their height from him, lol.
