    I would love to have a petite board…and if there’s a petite board there should be a tall board too!  I think being tall or petite definitely poses certain issues and challenges that we all have talked about and will still want to address in a specific board.

    I think a tall board is great! And I love the idea of a petite board, I just want to say that over here, petite is also used to describe weight (think size 0 model) so if there was an option I’d rather have separate boards for both. My Maid/Matron of Honor is petite (both height and size wise!) and it’s proving to be super difficult to find something for her to wear to the wedding. 

    But it’s totally a niche that needs to be filled and who better to cater to tall brides or petite brides than WeddingBee?

    I voted ‘neither’ this morning, but I must have misread the poll, because I thought it said “Would you use these boards”, not “Should we add these boards”. Sorry Scissors – I think adding them is great, but I wouldn’t use them. I’m average height and weight for the US. 🙂

    I think they are a great idea.  I wouldn’t use either of them since I’m middle height.

    At 5’10… I would absolutely use the tall board and with two of my bridesmaids under 5 feet and less than a size zero, I would use the petite board too! It’s odd how many concerns come up for people that don’t fit into the “average build” department.

    I’m petite, but I still think that most of the petite and tall issues concern the dress and that the dress category is a fine place for these posts… I feel like the segmenting based on specific qualities will eventually go too far (do I see a red-head board, leftie board, etc…) and there are already tons of categories.

    Just my opinion.

    D’oh! I clicked “Tall Board” right away & didn’t see that “both” was an option. I’m the loser that voted for a tall board and not a petite board (Sorry ladies!!)

    I’m PRO BOTH boards! 🙂 lol

    Curious- How tall is tall and how tall/short is petite?

    I would think if you have to buy long/x-long jeans or short jeans in my case a petite wedding dress, that might classify you as one of the two categories. Just my opinion though.
