have you played around with your hair with the veil, etc to see what you want for your wedding day hair??
i’d so love to buy wigs and see what i’d look like with different lenghts – but i’m too chicken to chop it off – i’ve never been comfortable with anything shorter than juuuuust a bit longer than shoulder length…
what are YOU most comfortable in is the most important question!! i think when people FEEL gorgeous it shows in their smiles and bpdy language in the pcis – you dont wanna look like you’re always thinkin "does my hair look ok?"
you only wear the dress and hair & makeup once, but the pictures live forever!
whatever you decide – i’m sure you’ll be gorgeous!!

I’m going through the same thing. For some reason I thought "up" was the way to go. Also, I have very unruly curly hair and I didn’t want to worry about friz on the big day, so I figured putting it up would eliminate some of that. But growing it out is killing me!!!

I think about it all the time, but I want to have my hair half down for the wedding, so I won’t chop it off. Have you had your hair trial yet? I would maybe wait until after that to see if the style you want for your wedding day requires that its longer, and if not take off a couple inches!

If you normally wear your hair short, I’d get it cut before the wedding.
Who says that brides have to have longer hair?

It’s really up to you!! If you are thinking you want your hair ‘up’ for the wedding – then it will probably be eaiser for the stylist to work with longer hair – but you should ask them!
If you always have short hair and want to wear it down for the wedding – then I say chop away 🙂
I constantly have this dilimna. I’ve always wanted long hair – but my hair just starts to look drab when it gets a little length to it. So I chop it. I love it really short too – but then it always takes so long to even get a bob. So I’m constantly growing – and cutting – and growing – and cutting!

if you like it short, and it goes with your dress – chop it. Just be warned that you’ll probably change your mind a dozen times afterwards too! I cut off my hair in August a la Katie Holmes, and now that the wedding approaches, my hair can’t grow fast enough!!

I am going through the same thing!! I want to chop it off so bad, but I really want my hair up for the wedding. I am just going to tough it out with long hair until August and then get it cut on our honeymoon! I have been going for trims every few weeks, though, so that I at least feel a little less like Cousin It.

I’m going through the same thing! I go through cycles with growing it out and cutting it. I want to wear my hair half-up half-down on my wedding day, so I want a little length to it even if it’s curled. I just got it cut and shaped a little bit on Saturday, but it’s driving me crazy not wearing it down on a day-to-day basis. I still have a little over four months to go.

I’m most definitely a short-hair girl (spikey/messy above the ear)…had it that way all my life. I think long hair makes me look a lot younger and I already look like 17. Anyway, my FI really likes the long hair look so I’m TRYING to humor him for our wedding but it is *incredibly* difficult. Right now its a little past my shoulders. So my resort now? The tiny ponytail. Not exactly appropriate in all situations but it gets it off my neck. I’ve already told him I’m chopping it all off after the wedding…heck maybe even during our honeymoon 🙂
It just frustrates me that (before I decided to grow my hair out) I couldn’t find hardly any pictures that could inspire a wedding look I liked. I would tell people that I’d vent to that people with short hair get married too!!
I miss short hair!! Only ten more weeks!!

aw thanks for all the feedback! it’s nice to know that i’m not alone! the irony is that my cousin is designing my dress so that i have noo idea if it will match (she says not to cut it, but that could be just traditional notions speaking). i think i look older with my hair in an updo (my dad said after one hair trial, "gee.. you look.. um.. mature), but it will be out of my face, and i’ll be less fidgety.
