Everyone time I picture myself getting married I actually picture Kiera Knightley marrying my fiance, I really really want to look like that! But any other day I’m usually wearing a tshirt and no make up!

Heck yeah!  I went all out.  It’s not every day that I shell out thousands of $$ on a dress, jewelry, shoes, hair & makeup for myself.  And it was all totally worth it!!  ๐Ÿ™‚

Love this thread! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I didn’t want to look like “myself” either. I mean, I wouldn’t have gone blonde or something drastic (that would have looked awful on me, anwyay), but when I saw our pictures I felt like I looked like a different person.. which was awesome because I think I looked great. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Oh hell yea! I think I’m so average and plain, I really want to stand out and feel beautiful on my day. I’m still contemplating whether I’m going to do my hair and makeup myself, but I’m sure going to make myself look glamorous!

Woo-hoo! I’m in. “Natural” is overrated. ๐Ÿ™‚ I mean, I wanted to be recognizable, and there was an emphasis for me on being “real” (no crazy retouching, etc.), but I think it’s totally warranted to want to look your absolute best on your wedding day. I mean that’s the point! You have the rest of your life to look “nice.”

Oh yeah I am going to go all out for mine!

I was telling my mom about fake eyelashes the other day and she thought it was ridiculous, but really it’s the norm with my friends at least.

Me! I am going all out! I don’t walk around everyday in a $1,500 dress, so my regular face and hair just won’t do!

I wasn’t going for anything in particular & while my make up was being done I kept having to resist the urge to ask her to tone it down – but in the end I looked like the best version of me I could have been. I had people tell me I looked like I should have been in a magazine & that I looked like a model (Maybe one who needs to grow about a foot and loose about 10kg – but still an awesome compliment nonetheless!) but yeah, me but as you said, on fiiiiiiire! LOL

I’m MOST afraid that on my day I will look TOO much like my normal, every day self *laughs* That’s one of my wedding phobias.

I’ve never seen a photo of me that I didn’t hate and want to destroy. The idea of feeling that way about our wedding photos terrifies me. So I want to look better than I ever have in my life… “picture perfect”. No, I don’t want to look like someone else… I just want to look like the most stunning version of me that I can possibly be.

I intend to have hair extensions (to my own normal length, but to add volume), airbrush makeup, false lashes, possibly a light fake tan, I’m in the process of having my teeth “fixed” (something that I’ve needed for a LONG time but wedding photos have been the motivation to finally do it) etc.

I also really hope that when my boy sees me on the day, he’ll be moved… I want him to get a great big old surprise at how gorgeous I can be. I want to see “wow” written all over his face. And the normal me that he wakes up to every morning just isn’t going to cut it.
Now, if only losing weight and toning up was something I could do on the day *laughs*
