I was very punk in high school, but there’s no photographic evidence of it!

This was me at my senior prom:

And this is me trying on wedding dresses, since I’m not married yet!

I guess not much has changed!

I’m at work and don’t have pictures but I was another goth girl. As a bride, I was very simplistic – Dress wasn’t poofy, no veil, no flowers, only accessory was a thin gold chain with a tiny bear pendant.

I still wear my big, spiky skull pendant now and then and a few of my old goth girl clothes/jewelry but nowhere near the level I was at in highschool.

@iarebridezilla:  I contemplated wearing my spiky skull to the wedding lol. So yeah, it was strange. I like to have rings, bracelets, etc but I wanted my wedding bands to stand out, not the fact that the bride looks all lovely and sweet and then there’s leather and steel lol. I’m sure my husband was very thankful.

He’s almost the complete opposite – very clean, put together, and preppy. In highschool I was into nerds and musicians wearing old jeans and t-shirts. And Peter Steele circa early 90’s.

Another punk girl here…I was all about band tees, wristbands, the ridiculous Hot Topic Tripp pants with straps all over them, all different colored streaks in my hair, pierced my lip on my 18th birthday. Nothing big changed, I just gradually grew out of it my first couple of years out of high school – I just enjoy picking out cute outfits and stuff more now. Oh, and after a big hair dye disaster that left my hair totally fried, I stopped dying it.

Although my senior pic totally makes me jealous of how skinny my arms were…damn I need to start going to the gym. I’m not like a ton heavier now but enough to be annoyed by it…I was probably a size 5 here and a size 11 now. (yeah, I still wear juniors sizing in jeans, whatever, lol)

Oh, and also, I was wearing a corset-style shirt with spaghetti straps here, my hair just covers the straps but I promise I had a shirt on, haha!

What a fun thread! You ladies look beautiful, by the way.

I don’t think too much has changed since high school. I played volleyball and softball and my fiance played football and did wrestling. We’ve matured considerably, but we are still interested in the same things. Physically, I’ve lost a few pounds since high school and my hair is now down to my waist and I don’t have bangs. I used to wear makeup in high school, but I hardly ever do now. That’s pretty much it for me.

This is us at our senior prom in 2007.

This is us at my brother’s wedding last year.

ETA: Sorry, I don’t have any pics of me in a wedding gown yet. =( But my “look” is going to be similar to my stint as a bridesmaid in the picture above.

In high school I was really skinny and wore lots of rings on my fingers and loved Tommy Hilfiger and timberland boots. Baggy clothes was hot to me too (OH LORD) But at times I was still a girly girl. Many said I was stuck up but I don’t believe that. But I can totally say I have changed
