With that big post about pre-planning waiting bees I thought to myself- “I’m not really pre-planning- just saving pretty pictures from time to time” but I just came to a realization- I am pre-planning!
I am growing out my hair for -wait for it- the wedding!
Any other waiting bees growing out your hair for the wedding?
Post # 3
Yes. I expect to get married in two years, and my hair takes forever to grow. So everytime I want to cut it I just think about having long hair when we finally get married.

Lol, I’ve been growing mine out also, kinda for my wedding (for which I am not yet engaged), kinda for other dumb reasons too. Those being that a. my boyfriend likes it (ew, I hate when girls say that), b. I moved to LA and thought long, blonde hair would help me fit in (hahahaha), and c. I’m lazy. I feel so silly admitting those but hey, we’re confessing here, aren’t we??

Haha, it’s equally as silly as me admitting that the other reason that I am letting mine grow is because every other Native girl I know has beautiful long hair. It is just not common in our culture to have short hair. We cut our hair when we are in mourning. But since I have always been a rebel, mine has always been shorter. Now it’s getting longer….see below, and excuse the silly drunk pic.

lol even though i was 99% sure i was getting engaged on my vacation I got my hair chopped off about 6-8 inches the week before. Loved the short cut, got engaged, and then cursed my short hair. Ah well…

@accorn: OH NOES! Why are you even on this website!?
Just joking. I am growing my hair out for the wedding and I started almost a year ago! (just got proposed to less than a month ago!)
Don’t let downers get to you. Maybe they are jealous because they didn’t find this awesome site while they were waiting!

@ILikePink: That’s really interesting about the tradition of cutting your hair while in mourning. Even drunkenly, your hair looks so gorgeous and shiny!

I posted about this before “that other post” got crazy… but pre-planning saved my ass. My husband has no concept of time, or how long it takes to do things.
Case in point: I asked my husband how he saw our life in 5 years recently, and he was talking about having two boys and coaching their hockey teams. Considering you have to be four, to start hockey, I’m not sure how that’s gonna work out.
So, we also talked about having a summer 2010 wedding, and when the ring wasn’t officially on my finger by summer 2009… I started pre-researching, and maybe contacted a couple venues to drive home that point that we needed to get on it if he actually still wanted the summer 2010 wedding because dates were booking up fast.

I’m definitely pre-planning.. LoL. Probably won’t have the ring for at least another couple of months, but I definitely am looking at things now. Our engagement will most likely be less than a year because neither of us is particularly fond of long engagements… so I feel like looking at things now will help when we’re engaged and “officially” planning.
And yes, I am growing my hair out for my wedding.. LoL. My SO thinks I love my hair more than him sometimes… For a while I was trying all sorts of things and taking extra good care of it. I’ve slacked off some since it got cold outside, though… not sure why.

@SapphireSun: my guy was like that too about the wedding. he was convinced we could do something in 3 months. we could, just not what i wanted. lol. thankfully one of my guy friends who just got married in september set him straight. he’s since extended it to a year. i just about kissed my friend for that since i just couldn’t drive home that point to him.

I am a pre-planner and proud of it! 🙂
I share in your confession – I’ve been growing my hair out for over a year now…yes with the intention of it being my “wedding hair.” My hair is super curly, so I’ve needed to get it trimmed regularly to deal with split ends, but overall I’m doing good. My hair is the longest its been since my freshman year of high school (1995-96). Actually, at this point it may even be slightly longer than that, which would make it the longest my hair has *ever* been.

A HA!!! funny! I am NO WHERE near getting married for at least another 1 1/2 years but I am soooo looking at things! I have to admit I felt a little offended by ‘the other post’ when it came out. I mean, I am a girl who always loved girly things including the wedding, the dresses, the makeup, the everything… sigh…
Your post remided me of my mother trying to grow her hair for my brother’s wedding next year! ahahahaha! I on the other hand never thought of growing my hair, probably because my hair has always been LONG! and I might cut it a lil shorter so it will be easier to arrange…
Post # 14
OH NO YOU DIDN’T (with a wave of the hand) lol.
Post # 15
@accorn:Yesss. I had long hair that started to look scraggly so I cut it back to the long bob. Now I will grow it until we get married in roughly 18 months.
Post # 16
@accorn: Im doing exactly the same (especially the hair, as painful as it is to me, Im horrified by the idea that it might not be long enough for the day..)
I also have two wedding site accounts with over 100 pictures saved and a working budget….Im nuts, and crazy detailed- I have colours, I have concured with SO (he thinks its adorable, Im afraid Im verging on obsessing sometimes) but then I run away for a few days from wedding sites or try to distract myself on the Bee- it helps it really does
But I need my wedding fix- I know I do.
Its also the fact that I have zero experience with “conventional” weddings- I have way too much experience with Indian weddings, and Canadian weddings couldnt be more different, and I have no idea what goes into them. But most of all its because I know when the time comes I have to be prepped to explain what I have learned about weddings to SO- cus he’s never even been to one!- yeah…..we needs the pre-planning lol.
