My hair! Ever sense we got engaged ive decided to grow my hair out for the wedding (only because I don’t know what style I want and its easier to cut it off then to add more for the big day) I usually have a pixie hair cut, so for me to have anything longer than 4” is LONG, my hair is now resting on my shoulders. I hate how everyone says “wow__(name)__your growing your hair? You don’t even look like yourself any more. I HATE IT. Its not me. I hate long hair but for some reason I have this typical “look” that a bride “should have” long wavy hair and a big poofy dress on the wedding day. I do like the idea of wavy hair but its not me, so what I was thinking was….ready??… I want to keep growing my hair for the wedding day, get the wavy hair like I oh so dream of JUST for the wedding and some photos, THEN before the reception go in the bridal suite and have my hair dresser cut it all off, the way a ALWAYS hair it, and maybe shove a cute little clip in it, so when we walk out at Husband & Wife. It will be me…. I told the FI about my idea and he had a huge smile on his face, (he hates long hair ) so hes excited to see if I really go through with it. What do you think and have you or anyone you know ever done such a thing?
For the wedding….
for the reception….

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!

It sounds like a great idea!! If it is logistically possible, go for 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!

@AndysCraftsNmore: Ha this post made me smile! I think if it’s YOU, then do it! How cool!

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.

Go for it! It sounds awesome!

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?
