I have heard of people cutting their hair after their wedding. In fact, several bees recently posted before and after shots. However, I have never heard of someone cutting their hair before their reception. I think it is a very unique idea and it sounds like both you and your partner would prefer it.

If you can pull it off logistically, I say, do it!

I don’t think I would ever be as brave as you, but go for it if you want to. Also, I think if you really don’t think its ‘you’ forget about any certain ‘look’ you’re supposed to have on your wedding day. It should not be about how everyone expects you to look, it should be about how you want to look and feel. But I don’t mind either way, if you really do want long hair for your pictures then thats perfectly okay too. I know I just wouldn’t want to look back and say, “wow that doesn’t even look like me!?” You know? But I’m all for a shock surprise hair cut, I think it would be awesome!

YES. This is so full of win. 


If you can do it, please do. But keep it a secret.  That would be SO AWESOME. Talk about an entrance into the reception!


I would be telling everyone about that after the wedding if I were a guest.

@AndysCraftsNmore:  I love the idea but the execution is just impossible. Even a minor haircut will take time and result in random hairs inevitably making their way onto your skin/face/dress etc. You are talking about a very drastic and detailed cut that will take time, lots of time. Depending on the back length shaving your neck might even be required (more little uncomfortable hairs).

I hate to be debbie downer here but the thought of rushing that hair cut and possible disaster that could follow at your wedding reception is just crazy.

When I first glanced at the pictures, I thought HOLY CRAP NO ARE YOU CRAZY WHAT IF YOU HATE IT?? Haha, but then I read your post. If this is your normal look and you love it, sure go for it if you can logistically do it.

I think it’s a fun idea, my only worry would be it will mean so much time away from your guests (and basically missing your own wedding). What about cutting it and just wearing a hair piece, or extensions for the ceremony? Then you can just take it out, and save yourself the time of getting a cut!

it would be a LONG process to get from the long long waves to the short spikes. it’s not just a quick cut.

i think it would be cool. but just know that it would take a while to get the cut done. and you’d have your guests and hubby waiting.

Honestly I think you’d be crazy to do it. What if you or your husband hates it? A sure way to ruin your night. Not worth the risk IMO !!

@Holly77:  Did you even read what she wrote??

OP – I would wear my hair how I want it for my wedding & after, period.  If you are more comfortable in a pixie, do it up for your actual ceremony.  I don’t understand why you would have a haircut you hate for your wedding?
