Heel Height

Mr. Lemur is definitely taller than I am. In this shot from our engagement pictures, you can see he easily has four or five inches on me—taller but not towering over me.

If I wear a normal sized heel, I’m just shorter than Mr. Lemur by an inch or two. I’m totally comfortable with this, and wear heels often. Would I wear a pair of shoes like this with a six-and-a-half-inch heel?

Well, probably not. It’s just not my style! And I mean, I’m not even sure I could walk in those, but that’s beside the point!

Now look at this picture of my whole family at Lake Superior this summer…

OK, so maybe it’s a slight incline. But it gets my point across—I’m definitely the shortest in the family! And Mr. Lemur is pretty close in height to both of my sisters.

In fact, throw a pair of three- or four-inch heels on either Sister E or Sister A and I’m pretty sure he’d be looking up at them. Mr. Lemur’s brothers (the groomsmen) aren’t necessarily tall either. Now, I’m not saying it would be a huge deal if they wore heels, but we’re definitely thinking of going with a flat sandal. I’m pretty sure they’d be more comfortable like that anyway!

If they wear a more casual sandal, what should I wear? I was leaning toward heels at first, but now I love the idea of being able to walk around all day no problem, not trip on my dress, be comfortable, match my sisters…

Did you wear heels and love it? Regret it? Wish you had worn the shoes of your dreams? DID wear the shoes of your dreams?

    @BookishBelle: Oh man, I don’t think I could handle this! I’d probably complain about them all night and Mr. Lemur would be like seriously? You should have worn other shoes! haha

    @ItsPronounced_ABear: I didn’t even think about that! I need to get my dress altered, but I didn’t consider the fact that changing shoes midway through would change the length of the dress. Mine is a flowy silk chiffon dress though so I’m not too worried about it.

    @Mrs. B.: Oh I know if I give them the option they’ll wear flats! I’m not even sure my sisters own a pair of heels haha. That’s the main reason I’m not pushing heels on them, although their height is a factor.

    @DEBeachGirl: Heels make us close in height but I wear heels all the time for work and it doesn’t bother me… I’d be way more concerned about tripping on my dress or coming down the aisle!

    @Mrs. Wallaby: I wear heels all the time for work, but I’m in business so they’re usually pretty boring 3″-4″ pumps in neutral colors haha. I love love wearing heels but I wear skirts a lot so I just think it looks better. I never wear heels with a long dress though…

    @tcgstar: So many people do this! Love it :)

    @missmovies: Oh my gosh, 13 inches!! That’s too cute though, love that you can rock the heels :)

    @StephK527: My friend has a pair of the blue glitter Toms! They’re not really my style but they look AWESOME on her… I can totally see her wearing them on her wedding day.

    @Mrs. Pony: You guys are way tougher than me I’m pretty sure 😉 I’d be all like “Ahh I can’t walk I can’t walk…” complaining the whole time!

    I knew I wanted to wear heels but in real life I can’t tolerate anything higher than maybe 2 1/2 inches. Mr. A is like 8 inches taller than me, so that definitely wasn’t an issue…comfort was! My shoes have a 2 3/4 inch heel, and I’m hoping I can keep them on most of the night!

    I’m wearing flats because my fiance is actually shorter than me. I hate wearing heels because then I am towering over him. I am planning on wearing something like Lavender Wang Luna or glittery flats.

    When I wear heels, I’m dangerously close to being taller than my fiance, and he hates it. But I love the feeling of wearing heels and feeling ohsofierce! So I think I might have to compromise and wear high enough heels that I feel fabulous, but not so high that I tower over him for the ceremony, and possibly change into pretty flats for the reception. Both for comfort, and just to get another pair of pretty shoes! 😉

    Sometimes your message can be utilised deliberately being a euphemism. Really does online dating suggest finding that, getting to sleep jointly, or merely spending time jointly. The reader may think that this answer is self applied visible. live webcams http://www.cheapsexchat.co/
