I’m 53 and I first time bride – and very gray-haired at this point. It’s been 3.5 years at least since I’ve dyed my hair and I’m having a meltdown about whether to bite the bullet and start coloring again before the wedding. I’ve even considered a hairweave or a lacefront wig – The reason I’m concerned is because I’m wearing a formal strapless gown and considering a veil below a low ponytail/updo. Any thoughts/ideas would be welcome bees!

I say dye it. I don’t understand the concerns about dyeing it?

@AshleyR83: I have some health issues so even if I do dye it, it has to be a rinse – that can get expensive with constantly re-touching it up.

@PMSJL: If it’s in your budget, I say go for it. 🙂

I think it’s up to you. If you are already rocking your gray hair, then you shouldn’t feel obligated to dye it. If you want to change the color, you should feel free to do that, too. You’ll look beautiful on your wedding day with any hair color!

I would probably die it if I were you (but my parents have been dying their hair for over 20 years!). Go to a professional who can make it look more natural and add some texture in there. The only time reason I wouldn’t say to die it would be if you think you really won’t look like yourself with dyed hair.

If it’s been 3.5 years since you dyed your hair, then I’m guessing that the gray looks good and you like it. I say don’t dye it — unless you really do want to.

I don’t think you should. If it’s been 3.5 years, the way you look now has become “you”. And if you have health concerns, it’s not worth it. It’s one of those things that you might regret looking back at pictures because you don’t look like yourself. Just as I would never tell a bride she should cut her hair or go spray tanning to look “better” for her wedding. It’s not always about what would look “better” according to society, it’s about looking like the most beautiful version of YOU. 🙂
