Wedding Party Height

I have joked a lot in the past "oh no one can wear heels at my wedding" (obviously I'm not serious lol) I am 5' tall and my FH is 5'10". His family is full of tall people. This is where the joke about wearing heels at the wedding came from. Some of his aunts & cousins are 5'10" and up. I already feel so short even with heels on.

My MOH is actually 4'9" and the best man is 6'3". My bridal party will not be wearing heels. That was their decision, not mine. I told them to do whatever would make them comfortable, as a group they said "no heels". My MAH actually found some cute sparkly flats!

I got a little off topic LOL

How tall are the people in your wedding party?

    I am tall, so I won’t need to wear heels (can’t walk in the darn things anyway lol).
    I’m 5’9” and FH is 6’3”
    Maid of Honor is 5’6”Man of Honor is 5’8”Groomsmen range from 5’9” to 6’1”
    Will you be taking your WP’s heights into account during your wedding? (Ie, pairing groomsmen & bridesmaids according to height, or lining the parties up by height when they stand with you during the ceremony)

    That is a debate I have had with myself. A LOT. The best man and one of the groomsmen are 6'3", two of the groomsmen are 6', the other is 5'10". My MOH is 4'9", my Matron is 5'3", my tallest bridesmaid is a wapping 5'6". I want the MOH and BM to walk down the aisle together, however that is over a 1 ft height difference. The height match up isn't great.

    I am 5ft 1, and two of my bridesmaids are 5 ft 3, and one is 4 ft 11. And all of the groomsmen are 6 ft!
    What we did was we didn’t have the groomsmen walk the bridesmaids down the aisle, the groomsmen walked in a straight line and then once in position the bridesmaids walked in a straight line. It made the pictures (in my opinion) perfect cause we got individuals of everybody. 😍

    I’m 5’6 he’s 5’8. My MOH & 1 bridesmaid is around the same height, my other bridesmaid is 5’4. He’s chosen 1 groomsman (his son) who’s 5’10- still up in the air on the best man & a groomsman!

    I'm 5'3.5". DH is just shy of 5'10".

    He went and picked 2 guys over 6', 1 guy nearly 6', 1 woman at 5'9", and his sister, who is shorter than me, for his side.

    I don't know the heights of my side, but 2 women were shorter, 1 taller, and then my bridesman, who is roughly DH's height.

    ....For the ceremony, I wore 3" heels.

    Our BP pictures are hilarious, because it's just UP down UP down UP.

    We're all shorties. I'm 5' and FH is 5'7. Bridal party is like 5'3 - 5'10. I really don't want to wear heels. Everyone knows I'm short already lol I'll probably wear some block heels or something

    I don’t believe any of the bridesmaids are over 5’6, my bridesman is 6’2, & the groomsmen are all mostly over 6 feet. I’m 5’2, my fiancé is 5’11.
