How To Choose A Wedding Dress That Makes You Look Tall
But I feel differently about my wedding, silly as it sounds I want to feel dainty and feminine on my wedding day and don't want to look obviously taller than him.
I have my dress and am planning on wearing kitten heels of around two inches, enough to give me a good posture but not super tall, has anyones groom used insole lifters or perhaps know of a men's shoe brand with a subtle heel to bring him up by those two inches to make us the same height again?!!
Im the same height as mine, were both 6 foot though so I dont wear heels anyway. I fond it really irritating when people glance at my feet to see if Im wearing heels, and when I have worn them they always feel its ok to comment on me not needing them. Just do one people! So Im wearing flats, and mens shoes always seem to have that little block heel of about an inch so that will do it. My posture will be good in flats as well, I was always taught to sit and stand straight in horse riding so that doesnt worry me.
Had your h2b said hed be happy to wear the insert things? I cant imagine mine would be. But Id just look for shoes with a chunkier heel for him and suggest them to him. I dont know anywhere that sells them specifically but Im sure youll find some. I'm 5'8 and OH is 5'6 he has no issues with my being taller and it doesn't bother him if I wear heals either however I'm not one to wear heals anymore and have chosen flats for the day of our wedding. What is your dress like? I wore flats and honestly cant tell if a bride is wearing heels under a long dress.
Maybe if it was skin tight on the legs? Perhaps consider wearing flats? Max and I are the same height 5'8" I'm wearing flats. Usually he doesn't mind but like You, for the wedding he feels a bit differently.
So he's got some of those heel insert thingys. They add up to like 6cm. He's wearing converse hi tops though so can comfortably wear these, in a normal shoe his heel would be hanging out the back! I'm slightly taller than my husband and I wore 2 inch heels on the day so not super big. Our photographer was great as well at positioning us so I was shorter in some photos.
Using a slope having my husband stand on the first rung behind a gate. They are really cute pics and not an obvious lets make him taller shot! Yes I also got some where I am shorter by standing on a slant or me standing with my legs far apart also works for the shots your legs aren't in.
But like Lauren says it is not immediately obvious as it makes me only a couple inches shorter when we are normally the same. I do enjoy to tower over him and he loves my heigth, I don't want him to protect me, I want him to love me. When we go out for dinner or parties I allways use really high heels, I love how the heels make me feel feminine, and he adores being short to me. Of course there are stares and stupid comments but, we don't give a sh Of cours I have to bend for kisses, sometimes he likes to stand on a step on tip toes to kiss me and even as I am the big one I can lift him up to make out and also enjoy when he sits on my legs to kiss at home.
At the begining it was a little bit weird but I started enjoying every day and now I really like to be stronger and taller, I am a confident person, love my self enjoy everything in life and the feeling of being a powerful amazon.
If you love your hubby enjoy who you are, embrace your differences and be happy otherwise a hell of thoughts, remorse, daydreams with an alfa macho, stupid comments and silly questionning will finish to ruin your marriage. Good for you for feeling confident with your height. I am sure many of us here are also confident with our height, however our husbands to be may be slightly less so. What you've said is completely superficial.
Agree with the above, should people only get married if they are equal heights? Short women perhaps should not Marry taller men? What about Cuban heels? I know they're not everybody's taste but I used to date a guy that loved wearing them. Everyones entitled to an opinion but if you go around stating people shouldnt get married and are 'making excuses' to be with their man then were entitled to say its a ridiculous or absurd opinion.
Its easy to cherry pick a few lines of half decent advise from a long post full of rubbish, but what she was saying is out of order. Freedom of speech goes both ways. You wouldnt march upto someone in real life and tell them they shouldnt get married and spout loads of crap, and for those people to politely accept your opinion, so why should she get to do it on the internet? Sorry if someone felt offended, I didn't want to be rude but really is annoying to see so many posts trying to figure out how to hide something that is a reality.
If you really want to be smaller than your hubby, good! If you love heels, wear them, if he really loves you he will enjoy the gorgeous women on his side, when a woman is really in love allways she will look beautiful and gorgeous. Imagine in the future when your kids see the photos and ask: what happened to dad that now is smaller? Anyway, OP I think you have to be careful with how you present the idea of heel blocks to your husband as I don't know if mine would be upset at the idea I'm 5 foot What I would say though is that while I couldn't have imagined getting married in flats, I unexpectedly ended up having half my photos done barefoot on th beach and ended up not dating at all!
I'd gone for smaller heels than my usual anyway, which put us at a similar height - but actually the photographer's angles sort out your photos anyway. If you don't want flats, various poses one knee bent will make you shorter AND give you a really flattering sillhouette! My husband is also a sloucher usually but on the wedding day stood tall and I swear he gained a few inches from that!
Good luck. My hubby is much taller than me anyway but I no longer do high heels so I wore kitten heels for my wedding even though I'd have been fine with height. Hubby wore Oliver Sweeny shoes - they were really nice and fashionable and it's seems most of the quality shoes that are the style of a wedding shoe like the brogues and formal shoes have a fairly chunky sole and heel anyway!
You OH will probably find just a good quality normal smart shoe will add a little height anyway and you could consider a beautiful flat if you wanted? You'd probably find the fit of your dress will give good posture anyway if it's remotely structured and you'd be super comfortable!! My kitten heels ended up rubbing they were new designer shoes that I hadn't worn in enough so I bust out most of the evening in old comfy flats anyway! You can't see under a dress and I boogied with the best of them!
Lots of people want to hide or change things that are a reality. Clothes of any sort hide the reality, bras hide the reality, control underwear hide the realify. I think youre reading far too deeply into it. Do you wear heels? Yes you said you did, I imagine you might do your hair or wear makeup etc, why do you do these things if youre so wound up about brides wanting to wear flats or give the husband a chunkier shoe?
I like to change my hair colour and wear bright lipsticks, it doesnt mean Im ashamed of my natural hair or lip colour. Sometimes I like to be pale, sometimes I want to be tanned, not ashamed either way. I like to wear flats because Im tall enough as it is and like comfy feet, it doesnt make me ashamed if my height and Im not trying to hide it.
Being tall is one of the few things that cant be changed or altered somehow and it has no relation whatsoever to how people feel about their husbands or wives. We all want our pictures to look a certain way, or else wed just rock up to the wedding with bed hair and sleep in our eyes.
I dont want to tower over my husband, so I dont want to wear heels. There is really no difference in that than you enjoying towering over yours when you wear heels. I also have kids, and know that they have far more interesting questions to ask than why dad looks an inch or 2 different. What if your children ask why mum is sometimes taller?
What on earth will you say? You could just tell them it was because of your shoes, or because of his shoes. Just like if my kids ask why I had purple hair I will say "because I dyed it purple". Toggle navigation. Categories Discussions Sign in. Mog25 Posts: 8.
