Tall groom and short bride: When high heels are not enough

June 15, 2019

Despite the fact that most women consider tallness as an attractive feature in a partner, a lot of them can feel embarrassed if they are much shorter than their boyfriends. Let’s face it: how many times have people criticized a couple with a huge height gap? From comments like “she looks like his daughter” to “they look so awkward together”, a short bride-to-be can recall this type of memories in the worst possible moment: her wedding day. Thankfully, there are many things women can do to overcome the height issue and stand tall next to their loved one.

 

- Use shoes that make you taller

The most obvious solution seems to be to wear high heels, bridal stilettos, bridal wedges shoes or bridal platforms shoes BUT be careful: this is a good option as long as you can pull it off and walk svelte as a gazelle, and not clumsy as Bambi on Ice. Choose a heel you feel comfortable with because, though you might think you will be sitting down for the majority of your ceremony, you will need to make one important walk: the one down the aisle. And you don’t want to mess that up.

 

- Use shoes that are comfortable

 

Above all, for your wedding day, we recommend you to choose shoes that will make you feel comfortable. Pick the ones that can boost your height without diminishing your ability to walk gracefully, for example, like elevator shoes for women. They are the type of shoes that will allow you to remember your wedding day as a magical event, and not like the day where your feet almost fell off.

We recommend you not to miss the chance to use your height gap to your advantage during your first dance. He can easily lift you, like Patrick Swayze on Dirty Dancing, or carry you in his arms while spinning elegantly. You should avoid doing a dip and a side dip since it will require both of you to perform uncomfortable poses due to your height difference. And don’t forget to rehearsal!
