    I wore a pink colored lip gloss for my wedding and it looks alright.  You might want to consider just going a few shades darker instead of switching to a dark red colored lipstick.

    I didn’t wear any lipstick and opted for clear gloss- I looked like myself. I think it’s important to look like yourself for your wedding.

    I never wear makeup and I didn’t on my wedding day.

    @maureen9004:  I agree. 

    It is important to look like yourself, IMO.  I would just do what you normally do.

    Definitely take pictures of it and see how it looks. I rarely wear lipstick but when I do, I almost always go for some shade of pale pinky nude. For the wedding, I want something a little different so I plan on trying something similar to what you described, or maybe a pinkish-berry shade.

    Do you live near a mall?  If so head over to a makeup counter and consult with one of the employees!  Find a color that looks good (and that you can try before you purchase it), and wear it around every once in a while just so you can become acclimated to wearing a new color.

    For weddings I think a bold lip is ok as long as everything else is understated.

    I think heavier make up is good…just a bit more than usual. It looks great in pics, will wear longer (cause it will be a  long day) and I think its good to feel a little more dolled up on a day thats so special.
