Ok bees. Im having one of those “I DO NOT LIKE MYSELF!!!!” days…. 🙁 Ugh.
Most of my discontent stems from my hair. Yeah, I could loose a few pounds (50). Yeah, I could use some new clothes (last summer….). Yeah, I could get some new make-up (and not use the same colors I used in high school…). BUT. I DO NOT LIKE MY HAIR.
Ive been letting it grow for the wedding. As brides tend to do. Then, just like the rest of you (I know this! Ive seen it happen), I plan to chop it off right after the wedding. Heck I may schedule a cut on SUNDAY before we leave on our honeymoon!
My FI really loves my new longer hair look. But I am a short hair girl. I always have been.
I want him to LOVE LOVE LOVE the way I look on that day. In my heart, I know that has nothing to do with my hair length.
So. What should I do? To chop or not to chop?
PS–All of the aforementioned issues I have with myself today will pass… I love me. He loves me. I just need to shake the funk.

Are u wearing your hair up or down?
If its up, you will prob regret your decision if the cut will complicate the updo. But, if your wearing it down, I would cut it.
Brides get very critical of themselves the DAY of the wedding, and if you have it down and its long & you don’t like it, you will be stressing yourself out 😉

I wouldn’t make any moves while you’re having one of those days. If he loves the look, I’d stick to the plan. You’re right, he’ll love you regardless, and he’ll think you’re beautiful no matter the length of your locks, but it might be a nice look, unlike what you’ve been used to wearing. It sounds like you might not be comfy with changes, so think about it for awhile. Ask around for opinions.
Oh, and you could always post pics so we can tell you which look suits ya!

I’d say to hold off. It sounds like you’re having a bad day, and you might regret your decision.

I think that your hair on your wedding day should feel natural and comfortable to you. If you really want to cut it, go for it.
I have always preferred my hair short, therefore I see no reason to grow it long just for one day. I want to look like myself in my wedding pictures, and on my wedding day in general, so I’m keeping mine short 🙂

I say you’ve been so good about not cutting to not cut it. Just 2 more months! Hang in there!

Thanks for all your advice. I resisted. AND! On a more proactive note, I scheduled a trial run with my stylist. Then, if I dont like the updos… Ill cut it. Seems like a logical conclusion.
Of course, Ill have to post pictures to get your opinions! Now Ive found the Bee…. I cant seem to do anything on my own… Hahaha.

I think you should try to look like yourself. If you always wear short hair why grow it out? Take a few days to think about it since it seems like you are having a bad day, but I’m a short hair gal too and I’d never grow it out….it just wouldn’t be me.

Cut cut cut!
I chopped my hair off a year and a half ago (boob length to cropped) and have never been happier. I’m not growing it out for the wedding (in fact, I’m getting it re-shaped just before so it’s at it’s shortest!) and if you identify more as a short haired woman than a long haired one, you shouldn’t either. Why would you want to look back on pictures of your wedding and not look like yourself!?

I was having an “ick” day last week, so I can totally relate. I need to lose some weight and my hair has become annoying and I need new clothes, but I want to wait until I lose some weight and my makeup needs a pick-me-up.
What I did was go to the mall and get a trim. That made me feel better about my hair. And then I went to the Sephora counter and had them do my makeup and then I purchased new makeup. That made me feel better about myself too. And I got my eye brows threaded. That made me feel better too. I still need to lose the weight and and I have made the decision to have a salad with every meal no matter what. A salad really helps. And I have also increased my activity level.
My suggestion to you is to get your hair trimmed. I think since you have been growing it out for so long and your FI loves your long hair you may regret cutting it short prior to the wedding. Go to a makeup counter and get your makeup done for free and maybe get some new makeup. Get your eyebrows done and start eating healthier. All these things should make you feel better about yourself. I know they have been working wonders for me.
