Should You Match Your Wedding’s Bridesmaids and Ushers According to Their Height?

One bride takes the “perfect wedding” thing too far when it comes to choosing her attendants

(page 1 of 2)

One of the most common stressors when planning a wedding is overanalyization. When a bride chooses her attendants, for example, she should do so because those people are special to her and she wants them to participate in her big day — she shouldn’t think too much into it beyond that. If she chooses attendants using any other criteria — like, say, because they’re the “perfect” height for each other — she misses the point completely!

A Hudson Valley bride asks: “I want my wedding to be perfect. When I asked my mother what she thought about my question for you, she laughed at me and said, ‘That should be your biggest problem.’ So I’m turning to you: Does the number of bridesmaids and groomsmen need to be the same? Should they be ‘matched’ in height?”
