I agree that natural is the way to go.  

I have really dark hair..almost black. I was considering maybe putting in some highlights to liven up my face…but in the end, kept it dark. I think it looked great! I think I would have regretted looking not natural…if you know what I mean.

Like you said, you don’t want to look back at your photos and seeing a phase. You want to look classic!

Your inspiration pic is gorgeous!

I’ve had blonde highlights for awhile now (had red ones before these), but I’m tired of them.  I have 2 boxes of medium brown dye in my bathroom just waiting for me to put them in my hair (my natural color is almost black as well). 

I’m sure your natural hair color will be gorgeous, and you & your FH are going to love it!

I was in the same boat – I’m naturally dark haired, but went blonde for the past few years. It’s now a month before my wedding, and I decided to go back dark brown because of precisely the same reasons that you’ve identified – that you’d be happier looking back on something classic instead of a fad. You don’t want to look back and be like, “what’s with the streaks?!” I would suggest though to see a hair colourist and not do it yourself. The hair colourist would be able to tell (attain) exactly what colour (and what highlights) to give you so that your wedding hair style has dimension. 1 colour looks flat, so you will need a bit of contrast. Also, the colourist would know the tone of dark brown that would complement your skin tone. Before I went dark again, here was my hair:

And here is a pic of my new hair – she did black wtih chocolate brown streaks. It’s a bit more red than I would have been comfortable with before, but according to my colourist, it’s the warm chocolate brown colour that complement my skin the best! Good luck!
