I would just advise that you definitely do a test run quite a bit before your wedding– a friend (in her 50’s) had a Botox session a couple of weeks before her son’s wedding, and she didn’t look the most natural in photos (something “off” about her eyebrows).  And anyway, I’m sure you look amazing– you’re only 31!  Maybe just book in for a series of facials or microdermabrasion appts to make your skin extra gorgeous, if you want to do something to enhance your looks?  🙂

I have the slightest hint of a wrinkle forming on my forehead.  I am 28 so I blame it on the stress of going through law school.  The problem is, my fiance is really against Botox.  My friend is an accupuncturist, so she recommended facial accupuncture instead.  My fiance thinks this is OK, for some reason.

I think I’ll try the accupuncture first.  I’m honestly a bit scared to try Botox for the reason listed in jhphi’s response :/

I’m thinking about getting it under my arms to prevent the excessive sweating that will probably be going on

YES!  I’m 32 and have developed the ole lines in the forehead that I didn’t have in my 20s…sucks!!!  I don’t think I have the guts to do it before my wedding though!

My fiance thinks I am nuts and I have to stop judging myself so hard…but I’ve made it very clear that botox and a little nip/tuck after having kids is likely something I will want!

I would try Renova it’s about $140 cream that is the only cream that the has proven to the FDA to fight wrinkles by stimulating collagen.  Your skin will become smoother I promise, you get it at the doctor’s.  I have been using it for 2 years and people constantly compliment me on my skin

I would love to get rid of that tiny wrinkle kind of starting on my 32 year old forehead, but I want to try for a baby soon and do not feel comfortable having botulism toxin a body I will share with my child.

I got mine at 35 between the eyebrows.  LOVE it…I am now 38 and have it done every 6 months.   I know people who need it more often, but this is just as preventative as you want it to be.  It forced me to stop squinting, frowning, and wear sunglasses.  NO one knew I got it.  They still don’t and my Fiance has no idea either!  When I bring it up,,,he says, YOU are not touching that pretty face of yours.  So it is my secret!

I’ve always thought of a liposuction of my mid section & thighs & transfer the fat to my butt so I get a more bodacious behind but lord knows I’m too chicken for that.  Wishful thinking.  =)

I do indeed want to try it – – I am a bit of a chicken though.  As an alternative I just scheduled a chemical peel….btw I am 30 and totally on the same page as you about wanting to get it, lol

Nope, I’m staying away from any kind of cosmetic procedure for as long as possible.  I turn 30 on Saturday, but people always think I’m like 24-25 (I got the Asian genes!).  Tongue out 

I have a friend who started Botox when she was like 25, and everyone thought she was nuts– she totally didn’t need it!  I’m sure none of us here NEED it… what ever happened to aging naturally and gracefully?  Undecided

Depending on your goals, have you thought about talking to your photographer about retouching the photos, instead of going for botox?  Just thinking of alternatives….
