I am struggling with what hair color I want for my wedding.
I am a natural redhead, right now strawberry-ish blonde, a little lighter I’d say. I’ve been every color under the sun, but the one color that I absolutley loved out of all of them was the fire engine red I went about 6 months ago. I was my natural red color and wanted a bright boost so decided to go pretty dramatic. The results: AMAZING (in my opinion) I was so beyond happy with the color, felt so confident and said to myself (“this is what I want on my wedding day”)
But why didn’t I keep it? Because my mom hated it. She doesn’t like anything other than my natural color and when she came with me to get the color again because we were going to the same place, she practically gave me hell and said that it looked $*i++y so I ended up not getting it. 🙁
But now with the lighter color in my hair, I am so unhappy with it. I went strawberry blonde with lighter blonde in it and it washes me out. I think that the bright red with my uber pale skin looks amazing.
So what do you think? Here’s a pic for reference, let me know! 🙂 I know not everyone will like it, but it is I have to say (again lol) my favorite. lol

Pretty sure in the long run you might regret that….I would.
Try to think 20 years down the road. You still going to love that fire engine red hair that has been immortalized in wedding photos for eternity?
If the answer to that question is yes, then go for it.

@agirlwithdreams7: I actually LOVE the colour in your profile pic – you look absolutely STUNNING with the lighter shade!!! I’m a little indecisive and love experimenting with colours myself, but I always, always go back to my natural shade with some highlights – because just like my dear daddy says “God knew exactly what he was doing…” 🙂
p.s. that said…if you are adamant about the fire engine red – go for it! it’s your big day!

@Mrs.tobe: you know what? I actually don’t think I’d end up regretting it. Ever since I started dying my hair (14) whenever I went a bright red I LOVED it, but it always faded so quickly, but of course I didn’t know how to take care of it properly then either. lol But I was bleach blonde in one of my prom pictures, and I know that prom isn’t like your wedding, but my mom said that I would regret it and I dont at all. I think that because I look good (at least I think so) with a different array of colors, I wouldnt regret it, especially if its one that I love and I love different looks on me. It would be different if it wasnt a red at all, I would regret not being SOME kind of redhead on my wedding day. haha
@MissHellas: haha that’s cute. 🙂 See, the only reason I end up going back to my natural shade, is because the bright reds or darker reds that I use fade and my natural color is back. haha I don’t particularly care for my shade of red, not that there is anything wrong with it, but it’s too “flat” looking. That’s why I think I like the bright red so much, because it brings life to my red hair I suppose haha.

I don’t think the lighter shade washes you out, and I also dig the bright red. Think about the timing, and maintenance to ake sure it is perfect for your day ( I’m sure you already have), think about the photos forever( sods like you already have, and think about how you love to see yourself ( seems you already ave). IMO, seeing just two pics, you are lucky and can carry many colors. And in reading your post and response, ihink you know you want to be RED!
What does your dress look like? Any theme for your wedding?

I think it looks cute, but I prefer the colour that your hair is in your avatar.
ETA: There seems to be a lot of middle ground between strawberry blonde and fire engine red. Could you maybe try out a red colour in between? One that is maybe more in the natural range?

You seem fairly adamant that you love it and want it- so just go for it.

I like the color of your avatar. The red is just way too unnatural and not the right choice for your wedding pictures… but that’s me! I like mixing things up a bit too but I think this is a bit too dramatic.

@agirlwithdreams7:So if you know you love it and you won’t regret it, then why not just go for it?

While I have no issues with the red ( I am a ginger myself ) I prefer the hair in your avatar, it is just so sexy.

@brandylynnp: welllll, my dress I have posted a ton on here, it’s in my gallery if you want to see it. 🙂 We have kind of a modern/vintage type theme, and this is the picture that inspired me to go bright red in the first place as well as thinking about it for my wedding day.
I found that^ picture on google and I just looooooved the way she looked! I fell in love with her hair color lol
@MademoiselleL: well I might end up doing that. I might go for a brighter red than I have now, more of an orange-y hued auburn, but if I dye it the bright red now it will fade enough to get rid of the blonde I have in my hair now, then I could dye over that with a more orangy-red, if that makes sense. So I’m not entirely sure yet. lol
@Mrs.tobe: because I;m not entirrrrrrley suuuuure yet. lol Im so indecisive, so I thought getting opinions might help?
