You look beautiful with whatever you choose. I am not sure if you are a natural blonde or brunette but I would go with my natural haircolor. So you look more like yourself for the wedding day.

Sounds like you can go either way and look amazing, everyone is all over the place!

Both colours suit you so well, you really do have your pick. I would say do whichever one you have had most often, or whichever one feels most like you to you. If it has been 50/50, flip a coin 😉 haha

ETA: Don’t decide based on those who are saying you should choose brown because it is your natural colour and you should look like ‘you’ on your wedding day. My natural hair colour is brown, but I have been dying my hair blonde since I was 13 and have only had brown hair for a couple years total in the last 14 years…it seems like you go back and forth more regularly but basically what I am saying is that just because brown is your natural hair colour doesn’t mean it is automatically the most ‘you,’ only you can decide what colour makes you feel the most like yourself, and I am betting for you both do!

I prefer brunette on you.  The blonde washes you out.

I vote blonde.  It looks best with your light skin and as others have mentioned the brown kind of washes you out.

Brunette looks better. The blonde color washes you out.

You look beautiful with either hair color, but you stand out more with the blonde!

You are beautiful either way, honestly.


I prefer the brown, I think its it much more flattering with your skin tone. And its very classic looking. I think in the long run the photos will reflect that.

Both look lovely.

I’d go brown but with some balayage in to give you some lighter or more caramel tones.

I actually like blond. Perhaps blond/brown base with a lot of highlights/lowlights. I do agree with a poster previously that brunette makes you look really young. Hair color like this?

Both look good, but if you go with brown you should fill your eyebrows in a little darker. I can’t tell if you fill them in at all now or if they are just natural, but if it’s not something you usually do I recommend ELF eyebrow palette in ‘light’, it’ll just read better in photographs if your eyebrows are a bot darker

I had a really hard time deciding this too!  I’m a natural blonde but everyone says dark brown hair looks more natural on me.  I ended up color correcting to my natural color and getting balayage so I was pretty blonde on my wedding day.  I think you should do whichever you feel most gorgeous with, but if you can’t decide, my vote is to let your natural color grow in and keep getting balayage highlights.  Natural looking and the best of both worlds in my opinion!

What about an ombre from the brown to blonde?
