I am dying to wear a fabulous pair of heels on wedding day. However I just don't know if it's a reality for me. For those of you who aren't aware I stand at a tall 6 feet. Luckily I have an equally tall fiance and could wear 4" heels and still not be taller. I have towered over friends and family for years and really don't want to tower any more than necessary over all my guests. That might sound silly but if you spent years at high school dances having to bend down to hear what people were saying over the music it would make more sense.

Heels would make for a funny looking father/daughter dance since I am already taller than my Dad in flats. In heels I just wouldn't be comfortable all day and that's the last thing I want on my wedding day, pinched toes. But mainly if I want to wear heels I will have to order my dress with extra length because they just don't make wedding dresses for tall girls, so I really need to decide now if I want to wear heels. I doubt heels are in the cards for me, but just maybe . . .

If you can't tell already (since I posted earlier today and this is a somewhat older post), I really like reading your blog! I too am engaged (but have yet to start my own blog).

Anyhow, why not wear heals for the ceremony and then switch to flats for the reception (and photos). Since you're FI is already taller than you you won't be towering over anyone while exchanging vows, but then you can change to flats for the reception and not tower over your guests? A little bit of everything is always fun! ;)
