I'm taller than my FH
Posted: Jul 8, 2009 5:30 PM

Hi ladies!
I was just wondering if any of you were in the same situation as me. My FH is 5'10'' and I'm 6'2''. I'm going to be wearing a dress that I'm absolutely in love with on our big day, but the dress itself is very pouffy (it's Maggie Sottero Sabelle). I'm a little worried that I'll look huge in a big dres and with the height difference. On the bright side I'm going to wear flats.
Let me know if you're taller!

I'm not taller than DH, but I know plenty of women who are taller than their partners and none of them have ever looked huge - even in a wedding dress. I think you're worrying for no reason.

Honestly, I can't tell much of a difference between someone who's 5'10" and someone who's 6'2".

Mer21 I can tell you that I'm almost in the same boat as you. I'm 6'1" and my fiance is 5'10". I'm wearing a decently puffy dress, it's an A-line. You already said you're wearing flats, good choice, I'm doing that too. Honestly most people don't notice height differences until you say something. Yeah that it 4 inches but trust me, on your wedding day no one is going to be looking at the tops of your heads saying "Hey is she taller than him?"

 

 

 

 I feel like a kid. Pinch me. This kind of love certainly can't be real. Oh wait, it is :)

I'm taller than my FH by about 3 inches. Oh well. I'll wear flats or sandals too, they're more comfortable anyway.

Haha, I have the opposite problem. I'm a whopping 5' 1" and my fiance is 6' 2" Sure, I can just wear heels, but I wear Doc Martens every single day of my life. I'm going to have to get high heels and they are going to KILL my feet.

Just letting you know short people have problems too!

I am technically shorter than my fiance but with heels on I am about the same height. I planned on wearing flats but my mom keeps saying you walk differently in heals then in flats so I am contemplating wearing like kitten heals...

My future brother in law is about one or two inches taller then his wife but she wore heals for the wedding and was taller then him and no one seemed to notice....I don't think I would worry about it! Actually I am pretty sure that my cousin was taller then her husband and she just wore ballet flats at the wedding and it wasn't a big deal!

I totally get you Mer21! I'm a bit insecure about the height difference in our relationship too. I'm 5'10 with a thin build & my boyfriend is 5'8 with a stocky build. We joke on each other every once in a while & that helps me lighten up about the height difference. Try not to worry about the height difference, especially on your wedding day! I think your dress sounds beautiful & I hope we can see some pics! Goodluck, you two are going to look gorgeous!

Wear whatever shoes make you comfortable - and if you think the height difference looks awkward, you can take off your shoes for the photos (pending your dress covers your bare toes!)

I'm a foot shorter than my fiance. Even if I wear heels, there is still an obvious height difference. But, hey, it's who we are.

I'm 5'6" and my SO is 4'10". I love being able to wear flats all the time. We just recently went to a friends wedding in Las Vegas and I wore flats the whole trip. All the other girls were in heels and complaining about sore swollen feet and walking around barefoot down the vegas strip (ewwwwwww) by the end of the night.

Katie Holmes is taller than Tom Cruise. Besides the fact that he's a total whack-job they had cute wedding pics. FH is only about 2 inches taller than me so if I wear high heels I'm taller than him. I'll probably wear flats for the wedding.

I'm planning on wearing the flattest shoes I can find, and getting my fiancée to wear something that borders on platforms. It's only a 2" difference, but still. I wish I was more confident like my sister, who is 4" taller than her husband, and wore 3" heels at her wedding. "Because they're pretty," she said.

I can definitely relate. My fiance and I are pretty much the same height (5'7"), but I still feel like I look huge standing next to him sometimes. I think I just have a tendency to stand up straighter than he does, and I have this stupid mind game going on that it must look super awkward to others. Or maybe it's because my dad is a foot taller than my mom, and I just grew up with the-guy-being-taller as the norm. I'll definitely be wearing flats for our wedding, but I wish I could just give him another inch or something so I could stop comparing our heights whenever we're standing next to each other!
