Do you or your spouse have facial piercings and did they stay in or come out for the wedding?
The reason I ask is because SO has facial piercings, his eyebrow and lower lip and asked “I’m guessing that I have to take the piercings out for the wedding?” I laughed and said “Nope. I barely notice them. It’ll be your mum that will want them out not me.” And he replied “yeh, true!”
(mind you, we’re not engaged yet lol.)

@krayzay87: I have a nose stud and I actually forgot about it until I got the pictures back.. 🙂 I figured it’s been a part of me for the past 12 years so why take it out now?

He shouldn’t take them out. They are part of what makes him who he is and I reckon that one of the most important things about weddings is remaining true to yourself rather than following other people’s conventions!

I don’t have facial piercings but I do have lots of holes in my ears including 3 tunnels, not huge one 6mm and two 4mm ones. I’m keeping them all in excpet for the 6mm tunnel as my FI hates it (but accepts its part of me) so for the wedding day I have promised him I’ll wear a pair of earings. I’m also thinking of trying to get all my piercings in the wedding colour scheme but that may be tricky.

I’m keeping mine in. They’re a part of my body and I don’t see why I should have to cover them. I have 22 piercings in total, and three tattoos.

Neither FI nor I do, but two of my BMs do and I would never dream of telling them to take them out. One of my girls also has a wrist tattoo that I’m sure my mother will make a private comment about, but she knows this BM well and knows she’s one of my best friends so she won’t make a fuss about it.

I don’t have any facial piercings anymore, but keep them in. Your alternative is to have empty holes, which…no. I have one BM with a labret and eyebrow and she can do whatever she wants with it.

Hehehe… I’ve already told him to keep them in. Maybe I’ll buy him some pretty ones as part of his engagement present lol. But his mum is kinda old school and will probably want a clean cut son for the wedding pictures. So he can take that up with her lol.
I have 6 tattoos, but more than likely all but one will be covered, unless I have my hair up and thenthe one on the back of my neck will be showing. SO’s tattoos will be covered too, unless he goes shirtless lol.

I think they’re sexy and cool. I’d keep them in and if FH had them, I’d INSIST he keep them in! They’re a neat part of who you are. I think it’s sad when interesting people with kickass style desperately “normal up” for the wedding and turn themselves into a shadow of their true personality just to please others. (If that’s how YOU wanna look, I don’t get it, but that’s fine, but if you’re doing it to please parents or grandparents or what have you, it depresses the heck out of me.)

Leave them! It’s who he is. I had a facial dermal that I’d be rockin at my wedding if my body hadn’t rejected it TWICE.

Leave them in! I used to have my eyebrow pierced, but my body rejected it three times, so I just had to accept that I couldn’t keep it in after the third time. But if I did, I would totally rock it! My ears are gauged and I’m keeping those in. I even bought blue plugs for them (my something blue!). My mom hates it, but FI doesn’t care. 🙂

I used to have a bunch of facial piercings (eyebrow, septum, vertical labret) but took them out about 8-9 years ago because it just wasn’t my style anymore… HOWEVER, I have a lot of tattoos, including a half-sleeve on one arm and a big blue rose that sort of caps my other shoulder. I still love all my tattoos, and for the longest time I worried that any future in-laws of mine might not find it acceptable for them to be showing at the wedding… And I am SO GLAD that BFs parents (whatever their private opinions might be) have never said anything even close to negative about them. In fact, when BF’s cousin was going to get a large tattoo, BF’s mom said “ohhh no, you should NOT do that!” and cousin replied “but Ashley has a ton of tattoos and that doesn’t seem to bother anyone” and (without even blinking) she replied, “yes but Ashley can actually pull them off – trust me, you can’t.” I thought that was funny, and she said it very affectionately ^_^

I have my nose pierced and I usually wear a horse shoe hoop, but I’ll be wearing a small gemstone stud on the big day.
