    I don’t have a nose ring anymore but if I did, I would totally keep it in. I got it because I loved it and it was my style and personality…you want your wedding photos to capture you as you are…not as someone else. I know a nose ring doesn’t change appearance much, but then again, it kinda does 🙂

    Im going through the same thing. I also have to make the decision to keep my eyebrow ring in. Ugh. I think I might keep the nose ring in, and take the eyebrow out…

    I plan on having a monroe piercing by the time I get married. I will totally be leaving it in. It’s decoration to me, just the same as wearing earrings, necklaces or bracelets.

    I have my nose and lip pierced and I plan to leave them both in for the wedding. I will probably change my lip ring to a smaller stud, but I see no reason to take them out.

    I have 2 nose rings on my left side, and I plan to keep them both in.  FI and I’s first date was to get my 2nd nose piercing, so it’s kind of like a symbol of our relationship!

    I have an eyebrow piercing and I’m definitely keeping it in! My mom hates that I am.. but I want to be myself 🙂 And I’ve been getting slack from some other people as well (family friends). But I really love the look of it, and I don’t want to change it just for my wedding.

    If I take it out, you can see the two holes. And clear retainers always show up on my skin, so I wouldn’t consider that. What did you end up deciding?

    Can you take it out just for the formal pictures and then put it back in for the reception? That way if in 20 years you look at the pictures you dont risk regretting your decision eitherway because you will have pics with it and without it.

    i usually wear a hoop in my nose, but wore a stud for the wedding.

    i am SOOO glad that i did. it is part of me and fits my personality, and did not want to take it out for the wedding. i also thought that having a hole in my nostril would look kinda weird.

    you can look through my recap posts to see pics of the nose ring if you would like!

    If you really want variety, ask your photog to photoshop it out of some pictures (maybe the close ups or where its really visible?) and leave the rest. OR. get your professional photos with them photoshopped out, and your guests’ photos have your piercings.

    If you consider them part of you, leave them in. I have a monroe and lower lip piercing, both are small. I don’t feel like “me” unless I have them in. Maybe if you want to do some closeups, have your photographer take some photos of both sides of your face that way you can at least have a photo of you without it in case you change your mind down the road.

    I left my nose piercing in for my wedding day and wore a very small diamond stud.  I think it looked tasteful and did not distract from everything else.

    I have 2 facial piercings…and 17 in my ears.  I’m leaving them all in because they are part of the reason why my conservative-looking future husband thought I was so interesting, lol.  I’ve had them for so many years that I wouldn’t be myself without them.
