I recently went bridesmaids dress shopping with the other BM's, and we were told to bring some 3'' heels to try on our dresses with. The other girls are no taller then 5'4 at the tallest, and I am 5'9. I personally love wearing heels so it wasn't a problem for me, but in just 3 inch heels, that puts me at 6ft which was apparently a problem. I was 'told' to perhaps wear flats to this wedding so the height difference wouldn't be so big between me and the other girls (I also tower over the bride). Everyone is wearing the same thing, and I don't want to wear flats because other people are insecure about their height because I certainly am not. The bride at first didn't care, but the other girls chimed in and tried to tell me it would look weird and now she's like, maybe they are right. I feel like they are telling me, there is something wrong with me because no one else is being told to wear something different. Should I fight this one, or just let it go?

I can see why they would be complaining, but I don't see why you should have to change for them... Maybe if they wore higher heels and you wore lower ones? That way the height difference in smaller but you're still able to wear what you'd like.
If it was such a problem then they should wear stilts! Nobody can control how tall they are and they're uncomfortable with it, not you. Either way you'll still be taller so they should let it go or everyone changes their shoes- it's not your fault for being taller!!
