I feel your pain…my shoes have to be under 2 inches cause I ordered a petite version of my dress and I don’t want to pay for alterations. I can’t find anything I like!

I was dealing with this exact same problem! I found some REALLY cute ones by Badgley Mischka in 3.5 though! There are a lot of different colors and styles too! You might want to check them out!

Ugh, I know!

My wedding boots are modest 2.5 inch, but that still puts me a smidge above Fiance. I keep telling him no one will notice, its not like someone is drawing our height on a wall!

3” is probably my own as I just cannot sacrifice comfort for shoes. I don’t understand why they have to make them all so high. Plus, I’d be over 6′ with 5” heels. Boo.

The good news is the platform on those are about 2″ so its like walking in 3″ heels.   I bought mine for the big day.  Wearing them around the house to get used to them.  I don’t normally wear heels, but I was shocked how easy they were to wear around.

@78science:  Really cute.   I’m a shorty, unfortunately, I need the height.  Fiance is 6’1″ and I’m 5’3″

I am in the same boat!! Also, if I get 4 inch heels I wont have to alter my dress…but then I will be a few inches taller than FI! I am not sure what I am going to do yet

I searched for months trying to find low shoes! Mine are 2.5 inches, which is taller than I wanted. They’re cute though! Cheap too, from DSW.

@78science:  We’re in the same shoe boat – I’m 5’10 and Fiance is a smidge shorter than I am so it’s going to be a combination of flats, flipflops and bare feet for me on our wedding day.

I know what you mean. I am 5’10”, incredibly clumsy, and Fiance is maybe an inch or two taller. I never wear heel! It sucks that it is hard (but not impossible!) to find cute flats!

I wish I had that problem! I’m 5’2″ so I need all the height I can get. Even if I were to wear 5 inch heels, I’d still be 2 inches shorter than Fiance. Sigh.

I’m having the same problem.  I didn’t get extra length on my dress, am almost as tall as Fi and don’t want to be uncomfortable.

But I still want fun, funky shoes.  I haven’t had any luck.
