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

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?”
