The man you’re marrying thinks you are the most beautiful person on earth. I’ve never met an ugly bride.

We all have things that we are not happy with. Please don’t worry too much about it. You can still do whatever you need to do in the next 3 months to feel better. We cannot turn back the clock, unfortunately. Your SO picked YOU! He will think you are beautiful no matter what. Once you are in that dress and all dolled up, you’ll feel better. Don’t beat yourself up! 🙂

There is no such thing as an ugly bride. Would you say those things to your best friend on her wedding day?? Then WHY would you say them to yourself?? Your FI loves you just as you are. Your family and friends love you just as you are. Please don’t dwell on this – you’ll just make yourself miserable and unhappy on a day that is supposed to be joyful.

@paradox:  You can lose a lot of weight in three months! Get going and you’ll feel so much better on the big day.

Aw hun, it’s ok!  Like PP said — your man thinks you are beautiful, and that’s what matters most!  I think a lot of girls are unhappy with how they feel about themselves come their wedding day.  But your happy face and smile will be beautiful!

That said — you can still make some improvements in 3 months!  (I am 3 months away as well.)  Start working out and eating right and you can shed quite a few lbs in 3 months.  I know it’s not easy (trust me…I’m right there with you), but it can still be improved on!

Hugs!

It’s true.  There’s some kind of wedding magic.  Even girls who I never thought of as knockouts are incredibly breathtaking on their wedding day.

Regardless of extra weight, wrinkles, or hair mishaps, the look of pure happiness glowing on your face as you walk down that aisle makes you stunning.

As much as I fully support any bride being comfortable in their skin (at least for the sake of good photos) I understand that feeling. I’m painfully average looking, though I’m moderately attractive when I dress up, and I am really worried I won’t look pretty.

@paradox:  ((Hugs)) You will be glowing with love and so beautiful on your wedding day. Your soon to be husband (yay!) already thinks you’re gorgeous and will just be entranced that whole day. You’ll be surrounded by love and happiness, and it will show. I promise.

@paradox:  I agree with previous posters. There’s no such thing as an ugly bride! And Im pretty sure your fiance doesnt think you’re ugly either! As stated, theres a lot you can do in a few months to help with the weight. There’s still plenty of time. But just remember, you still want to look like you on your wedding day. As for the hair issue, it’ll grow, dont worry.. If you’re that worried, invest in some extentions.

Just remember, your fiance CHOSE YOU!! Not the stick model on the web, or the other bride you walked past at the park. YOU.. and only you!

@paradox:  Never mind your hair, weight, or wrinkles – confidence makes a woman sexy. Do what you can to make yourself healthier in the next few months (small changes make a big difference! Drink more water, walk every day, get more sleep) but the most important thing you need to do is stop focusing on all the things you don’t like about yourself and instead start counting all the things you do like. The more you focus on the negatives, the more of them there are to focus on!

@paradox:  I feel your pain. I got engaged July last year and have only started losing this year… I think you will be beautiful but we both probably have high expectations. My moms words of advice…” Start right now doing everything you can and in 3 months you will be more happy and healthy than you are right now”. It may not be your perfect vision but something may make you feel better than nothing:) good luck!

@paradox:  i got my hair cut and she chopped mine off, I know look like my seven year old self with a bob and bangs.  Luckily!!! Hair grows, take some biotin it will grow even faster and in 3 months it will be a few inches longer and looking healthy.  Also, don’t focus on the number on the scale focus on yourself and how you feel I bet you look fantastic.  As others have said, there is no such thing as an ugly bride and you are being way too hard on yourself.  Keep your chin up lady you are marrying the love of your life and are going to have a FANTASTIC day!

To comfort you over the hair situation: I decided a couple of months before my wedding to trim my own bangs. WORST DECISION EVER!! I did a total chop job, and they ended up sooo short and uneven. They grew out in time, and looked totally fine on the day! I’m sure you have enough time to salvage your hair! 

You will not be an ugly bride…I think many women worry that they won’t be as beautiful as they hope. Your FI will think you are stunning!
