Well, you have less than a month to wait.  If you want to wear your hair up, will you have to leave it the length that you’ve patiently waited to achieve? If so, I would hang in there (no pun intended!) for another few weeks.

I went through this too– resist the urge! You can always change your mind when it gets closer and cut it off, but you can’t regrow it if you regret cutting it after.

I did actaully chop mine 4 weeks before the wedding.  I wore my hair down and wavy for the day and the length did nothing for it.  I chopped it to shoulder length – best move I ever made.  I chopped it again after the wedding and I loved it.  I actually thought that I should have chopped it to bob length before the wedding!

DO NOT DO IT!! You’ve come so far, resist a little bit longer.

I’m going through the same situation. My hair is insanely long, and I still have 3 more months to go! But you’ll be pleased with the result. There’s so many more style options with long hair…

Get a trim two or three weeks before, I wouldn’t advise a drastic change right before the wedding, especially if it will impact how you’ve been planning on wearing your hair.

Wait until afterwards, so you can have your “official” PWC (post-wedding chop)! Had mine last week- 5 inches-went from shoulder to chin length- feels great!

Ooh, that seems like a decision that I wouldn’t take lightly. If you’ve been growing your hair out for the wedding specifically, I would hang on for just that 1 more month!  Go for the post wedding chop.  Unless you have a new vision for your wedding day look, which would be a different story!

Hang in there!!!! It’s almost over!! I totally feel you! I can’t wait for the post-wedding chop. I’m blonde and I’m going to go brunette too,  I can’t wait for a new look to start the new phase of my life. Try to see it that way – wait until you’re married and get a new look for fun 🙂

@7monthbride:  Don’t do anything drastic. Whenever I have the urge to chop my hair I go get it trimmed – no more than an inch or two. I also get a nice deep conditioning treatment at the salon, and then when I see how nice my hair is, the urge to actually chop it passes 🙂

I usually have hair past shoulder length, and I have regretted every rash hair decision I’ve ever made. Slowly learning! I wear my hair up 95% of the time, so need the length. I hate short hair on myself.. but I still do get the urge sometimes.

I’m growing mine out, too and constantly have the urge to cut it (and I don’t even have plans yet – I’m at LEAST a year away), but I won’t cut it because I can always cut it a few days before the wedding, but I can never grow it back (without paying tons for extensions).

Don’t do it.

I say go for it 🙂 I don’t think you need to have long hair for your wedding… it may be a good idea to do it earlier too in case you HATE it and want to wear extentions. I’m a big fan of shorter hair ^.^

Definitely don’t cut your long hair! So much more feminine.
