Oh man, I have the same problem too…I always do a half-assed smile to hide it, but then people think I’m unhappy. I think that your plan sounds just like what I’m planning to do too. Just don’t worry about it too much….we’re all so hard on ourselves! You’ll look great 🙂

sam problem with myself apart from its my teeth that are the problem… overcrowding off my teeth on my let side which has made my whole smile wonky and i just cant afford £4000 for the necessary braces 🙁

I always smile with my mouth closed but i hate that people think its me being miserable. I decided for the wedding to let my photographer know about it and do three quater of my smiles with my mouth closed and the other quater with my mouth open incase there were some nice ones…. but of course i couldnt stop smiling open mouthed on the day without even realising it and due to a very last minute change in photographer my new photographer did not know about my problem.

I got my photos back though and was so happy that i was open mouth smiling in some, the photos take from right side looked really nice and i gained a bit confidence about my smile, unfortunately those taken from the left are another story and i just want to beg a dentist to sort them out or soeone to photoshop them lol

Anyways smile both ways in equal amounts and it may even give you more confidence when you see the results/help you learn your angles intime for the wedding

Good luck

Try the Grand Canyon trick . It sounds weird but for me it really does help let go of worries and insecurities (I hate my smile too). It makes you realize how tiny the worry is in the big scheme of things.
