You are the bride, right? Everyone will be looking at you, no matter what. Even if you are the shortest πŸ™‚

My sister is 6’0 and my bff is 5’3 on a good day, lol. They stood next to each other at the wedding, and I am looking at a pic of the entire party right now that is hanging on my wall, and it doesn’t look bad at all.  everyone in our party was a diffferent height, and honestly, I think it would look weird if everyone was the same. I think it’ll be fine, and pics will turn out great!

Oh hun… please don’t stress about this. You are the bride!! You will not be lost on your wedding day!! So what if you’re shorter than your friends? YOU are the one wearing the white wedding dress… not them!! I guarantee all eyes will be on you all night.

I am 5’0″ and my bridesmaids are all way taller than me. I told them to just get whatever shoes they are comfortable in, heels, flats, whatever. It doesn’t matter that they will be towering over me cuz it’s still MY party. πŸ˜‰

I’m 5’1″ – I’m always the shortest in any group!  It’s no biggie.  Don’t even worry about it.  You will still be the visual focal point.

(Also, it’s heels, not heals. Sorry to be a spelling nazi!)

I would wear whatever makes you feel the best!

I am 5’2 and the shortest person at my wedding! I am hoping that the flashy ivory dress well help me stand out! πŸ˜›

OP, I am 5’1″, so I totally get what you are saying.  But my BMs are all also around that height (5’2″, 5’3″, 4’11”), except one, who is 5’8″.  I just told them to wear whatever they wanted.  We’re going to have a crazy amount of height disparity, especially because 4’11” is wearing flats!  I wouldn’t worry about it if I was you!  You’re going to be beautiful no matter how tall you are!

I’m 5’2 and the girls in my bridal party range from 5’0 to 5’7 – don’t worry about it!

You’re 5’3 and there is NOTHING you can do about it. Sure, you can get some 5″ heels, but how long will those last? Who cares about how tall or short you are, you’re the bride!!!

Don’t worry about it all.  I have a sister that is my same height, and another sister that is 5’10 (both were BMs).  Throw into the mix that my Darling Husband is 6’6″ (I’m 5’4″) and all his groomsmen that are over 6’0″ combined with the fact that I had to wear flats due to crummy winter conditions…yes, I looked like a shortie, but everyone in our lives are used to me looking like a shortie, so it wasn’t any different on our wedidng day.  You will look beautiful and will standout no matter the height of your wedding party!

I was in a wedding recently and the bride got the tallest heels she could because her husband is tall and she’s short. I STILL towered over her in pictures and I was wearing flats! Love who you are short, tall, whatever.

If you like the heels, wear those, and have a pair of flats to change into if your feet start hurting. And I say, let your bridesmaids wear whichever they’re more comfortable with. I don’t think the height is important at all, you’ll be the center of attention no matter what. πŸ™‚
