Don’t let his height get in the way!
Planning the perfect wedding day is exhausting! With all eyes on you, the wedding aisle is your very own runway. You want to look your best and want that pair of rocking heels to put the perfect finishing touch on your wedding day look. But what if your perfect pair of high heels leaves you with the unfortunate situation where you find yourself towering over your partner on your special day?
Unsurprisingly this is an extremely common question facing brides-to-be. Do you go with your favourite Jimmy Choo’s or do you compromise to compensate for any considerable height variation between you and your groom? Let’s be honest, many women who prefer to have a taller partner are faced with a wedding day dilemma once they have picked out their heels.
Whilst it ultimately comes down to how comfortable both you and your partner are with any height variance between yourselves there are some key features of the day that are worth evaluating when making your decision. Whether it be the ceremony itself or the timeless wedding day photos where you may find yourself looking down to your partner you may find yourself looking to curb your heel height.
What about his shoes solving the problem for you? Heel lifts or elevator shoes are far more common than what one may think. Such is the demand for these shoes you now can find shoe designs that cater specifically for wedding days! What makes these shoes particularly desirable is that they can add between 7 - 10cm without compromising comfort or style.
Don’t just take our word for it, check out some of these shoes below:
The designer behind Australia’s most well known elevator shoe label,Jennen Ngiau-Keng highlights that it’s all about perception saying that “couples want to look back at their special day for many years to come and see a balance in their wedding day photos”. Jennen regularly receives glowing feedback with many grooms overwhelming surprised about how comfortable the shoes were to wear.
So the takeaway for couples toiling with any wedding day height conundrum, you may be able to find a way where both the bride gets to wear some killer heels without the shoe negatively impacting on the groom’s confidence or affecting the overall wedding day experience.
Measure the length of your feet in mm, with your heels against a wall.
For increased accuracy, ask for assistance when measuring.
If you have broad feet, we recommend selecting one EURO size larger than your measurement.
It's common for one foot to be slightly longer than the other. For example, if your results are: right foot (254mm) and left foot (257mm), then we recommend size 42.
If unsure about sizing, we recommend ordering one EURO size larger and a set of 1.2cm Ezilift Insoles. These shoe lift insoles can be inserted into your JENNEN shoes if there is a little extra room inside, or into your regular shoes for extra height and cushioning.
