So Im getting married in 1 year and Im trying to figure out if I should let my hair grow or keep it short.
I have had short hair since I was 18 (Im 26 now) and I am considering growing it out to about shoulder length for the wedding. Its about to my chin now.
Should I cut it and keep it short so I look the same as I alwaya have it…or grow it out?!

I would grow it out for a bit to see how you like it and if you don’t then just cut it off.
It’s harder to grow hair then to cut it.

I was only engaged for about six months, which was enough time for me to add two inches, but not a whole lot to my hair. I’m really glad I didn’t spend a year growing it out beforehand. If you’re happy with it now, keep it that way. If you add a couple of inches in the six months before the wedding, you’ll have enough to pull it all up and off your neck (which may not be as urgent in September in Michigan as it was in DC in July).

I wouldn’t grow it out just for the wedding. The longer your hair, the more work to take care of it. Stick with being you.

Whatever makes you happy! But you could just grow it out for a year, and when your wedding date gets closer, at least you’ll have the option to keep it long or chop it off for the wedding. 🙂

I guess it depends on what you want to do with your hair on your big day. Do you want it up or down? If you want it up i suggest you grow it out a bit…i think thats what im gonna do…right now im growing mine out for Locks of Love…im donating in Januaryish…and i will prob be getting married in april of 2011…that give me a little over a year to grow my hair back out again and then after teh ceremony i will chop it off!!

Grow it out for now. The worst that can happen is you take the year to grow it and then you decide to chop it off for the wedding.. no harm. But at least you will give yourself the option.

I’m a long hair gal- I went a few years with short hair and now I’m growing it out for the wedding. But do whatever fits you- you dont want to look back in 10 years and think you look funny because you usually don’t have long hair and looked different at your wedding.

I think I really depends on what you want to do with it. Like others said, if you haven’t decided, maybe grow it out and then cut it if you decide to go short later. At least then you’ll have the option.

I’m gonna say to go with whatever you want it to be. I grew out my hair again for the wedding and do not regret it. I had more options with the long hair then the short hair. I did however, do a PWC immediately 🙂

I say stick with short…that’s what I am doing too. Long hair isn’t me. I am growing it just a few inches to get the curl I want but I’m not growing it a lot to get an updo or anything. Why should you look that different on your wedding day? I say keep it short!

I would say grow it out until you make a decision on what you want your hair to look like for your wedding. You can always cut it if you decide to be a short haired bride, but at least this gives you an option of having more styles

Welcome to the Hive, nicole61183. I also got married in Ann Arbor, this past May. Where’s your wedding?
You could always start growing it now and see what you think as your date approaches. That way, if you like it longer, you can leave it as is, or if you want to go back to your shorter style, you can cut it off.

It wouldn’t hurt to grow it out. If you end up not liking it, you could always cut it before the wedding.
I’ve been growing my hair out since I got engaged almost two years ago. It was already long-ish but now it’s halfway down my back. I have VERY thick hair and although I am excited to have a beautiful style on my wedding day, I am SO pumped to cut it off next summer!
