@SoontobeMrsA: I want to know how to get over those insecurities too!

My bf is exceptionally handsome, tall, dark hair, brown eyes, perfect face, perfect complexion.

I’m short (yes thin) but I got red/brown/blonde/white hair (yup, every color and changes with the seasons), brown eyes, and am dangerously close to having freckles, I am very white, and my skin gets irritated easily, and personally, I don’t like my face.  >.< In essence, I’m Irish and idk what to do to look gorgeous cause it seems that no color looks good on me except black.

I often wish I had black hair, and blue eyes πŸ™

Honestly, I feel this way a lot. But, knowing that the hubs thinks I’m the most beautiful person in the world really makes it better. He tells me this all the time, especially when he knows I am down on myself, and really, he’s the only one that matters. Sure, there are days I feel better than some, but on my off days I will send hubs a text and wait for his sweet reply, and I perk right up.  While I’m not beautiful (to me at least) in our wedding pics, I look like me, and how I look every day to the hubs.

I like freckles, and I have lots of freckles.  They are a good thing.  πŸ™‚

Try getting married at your all-time heaviest–and not photographing well to begin with! I had a few moments after seeing our pics where I was like, “Ugh,” but then I realized the old saying is true–there is no such thing as an ugly bride because the happy, excited glow makes you beautiful, no matter what.

@SoontobeMrsA: really? Do you like them?

Because of my whiteness, and my reddish hair, I never know what color matches (makeup or clothes-wise) My bf always calls me ‘cute’ and ‘beautiful’ but I never feel that way.  I can’t seem to do anything right with my hair (it frizzes if I touch it) and *sigh* idk.

This post makes me sad πŸ™

But like most girls, I have plenty of insecurities. I think it would take me hours to write them all out.

@SoontobeMrsA: I felt that way! I was really nervous about our wedding pics.

And you know what? I hate some of them (some of my husband’s favorites even). But that’s not because I look bad, it’s mostly just because I don’t like seeing pictures of myself. Okay, and in one, I’m pulling this really weird face like I’m about to sneeze, and he thinks it’s funny.

Honestly though, our engagment shoot helped SO SO SO much. It was the first time I’d ever been in front of a professional camera, and I was shocked at how good I looked when someone knew what angles to use, etc.

Another thing that really helped on the wedding day was the professional make up. I was blessed to have an old friend who has been a professional MUA for several years volunteer her services for my sake, and I don’t ever wear make up in real life (ever. I went to Mac and was like, “I have to buy that skin colored stuff that you put all over your face for my wedding.” and they were like, “You mean…foundation?” haha) so I was also amazed by how much she was able to do, and she didn’t even put that much on me. πŸ™‚

I’m insecure about my arms πŸ™ I can be at my thinnest, but my arms seem to NEVER look thin. I told my photog to make sure to photoshop them if she can πŸ™‚

What?? I don’t feel guilty πŸ™‚

ugh i hear you!  I have red frizzy hair (we’ll be getting hitched in FL so i’ll look wonderful in the humidity) which can look gorgeous but on important days, ie. weddings & any other day pics are taken… it’s a big mess.   Also all my SIL’s and FSIL’s are thin, and i’m curvy.   I’m working on the curvyness but I still worry about those pics that last a lifetime.

@MissBoPeep: I’m soooo with you. I get brown freckles in the summer. I LOVE them. Wish they’d stick around all year. I think chicks with freckles are super hot.

@HisIrishPrincess: Yup, and the problem with my hair is it’s either frizzy and dry, or it looks oily, there is no in between! >.<

I was 105 for many years, until the stupid bcp ruined that.  now I’m 120, and fighting it, but it only put the weight in my butt and boobs.  I really don’t know how to handle my body.  I’ve been a size B32 for years, and all of a sudden I’m a C34+  I guess it’s a good thing, but umm, wtf?
