Short bride, Super tall groom

Hey guys. I run about 5 foot nothing and my fiance is 6'8". Any ideas to make the pics for the wedding look different or to make them look...normal despite the slight difference in size?

    Wear heels? 

    Honestly though, why would you want to look anything other than what the two of you look like together already? If you look significantly shorter than him (because you are) and will be that way forever (because there is no permanent solution), why should your wedding day be any different? It's the same idea as not going make up crazy if you typically wear little or no make up regularly. I'm not trying to be rude, so I hope it doesn't sound like I am. I guess I just wonder why it's important to negate the obvious height difference for your wedding. Why fake it, ya know?

    I agree with cnf that why would you want to change the way you two look together?

    But wear heels and I would talk to your photographer(if you have one yet) because they will know what angles and types of shots will make you two look best together.

    I also agree with PP. 

    But for some reason, the only other thought that came to my mind was have him pick you up, which could make for some super cute shots.  Obviously not for all of them :)

    Maybe you could have a few close-up shots with him sitting down and you standing next to him? We have the opposite problem (I'm 4 inches taller) so I know what you're saying. You want a picture with both of your faces that isn't from across the street. ;)

    To make myself look like less of a jerk (I feel like I came off rude before, I'm sorry, I'm just curious), I want you to know that I just read your roll call post and your proposal story literally made me "aww" outloud. Also, we went out lab to be part of wedding, but he'll be only 2 years old and I don't know if he'll be well enough behaved. He goes kind of crazy for other people. Plus someone would have to drive him back to our house (the whole two miles it will be) and I feel terrible making someone do that.

    Thanks =) In our case it's a Catholic wedding. the priest is r=prety relaxed about everyting, but it was a distinct NO to the dog being involved in the wedding, that and my dog (the other 3 are the dogs at my parents that I grew up with) is just a year now, so I feel your pain as my baby will only be 2 and seeing as she is in heat now, I am guessing that she will be then as well.

    I say go for it with the dog, just have an attendant holding on to the leash and have an escape route planned if things do get out of control. If anything treat it like you would a small child: have a few favorite toys, if any on site to keep the dog entertained and have a person in the front row hold them if one of the attendants can't.
