If she’s willing to wear a wig, I’d say "No big deal".  Pretty cool mom to help support cancer kids!

That is so awesome of your mom!!!  Kudos to her– that is really brave of her, I know I couldn’t do it! 

85 days is almost 3 months… maybe it will grow into a cute pixie length by then?   She’ll just have hair like a typical guy’s length.  Depends how fast her hair grows though… GOOD LUCK! πŸ™‚

yeah I agree with doctorgirl, if she is willing to wear a wig I dont think it should be an issue and its for a good cause!

I was ready to kill my mom when she came to my house and she had red, orange and purple hair and was cut all funky – I thought it looks mullet chic… can you believe it?! I told her that better be dyed to a regular color and cut normally by my wedding, my mother is not a freaking BIRD! its awful!

Wow. that is some dedication. I think it’s wonderful! But, i’d be weirded out if my mom suddenly was bald, too, despite her reasons. I think a wig is fine. They are so good now about having realistic ones. And nobody will ever notice!!!

yup, RED ORANGE AND PURPLE!!! well the red is more a magenta, pinky color. I wanted to die when she walked through my door! she said it’s like her mid life crisis. I told her to go buy a car or get her boobs done! rather than look that rediculous!

At least this wasn’t a Brittany Spears type of episode… haha It really is a good cause, and if for whatever reason she doesn’t have a wig, you can look back at the pictures and think about what an amazing person your mother is because of what she did. Most people wouldn’t shave their head (I don’t think I would!) let alone so close to a wedding! It was a very selfless thing for her to do, and I think you should be proud πŸ™‚ Yeah, it would definitely take some getting used to, but just laugh it off πŸ™‚

Very cool of your mom! 

 My mom has lost her hair twice from chemo, and both times when she had the short spiky hair growing in, people thought she had the ‘do on purpose because it looked so chic πŸ™‚

It is a bit odd that she didn’t just wait a few months, but it won’t matter to you at al the day of your wedding – if anything you will one day look back at hte pics and remember why her hair was short – and smile at what an awesome mom you have!

Wow! So kind of your mom, but the timing seems a bit strange to me! I agree with others though that it will probably grow back in enough to be a cute length in time for your wedding, especially if her hair grows fast as you said. If it was me, though, I’d probably have had a brief bridezilla moment on my mom and then checked myself considering the reason.

If she wears a wig, I think all will be okay in the end.  Look at the bright side, she did it for a good cause, not because she’s a little crazy or anything, lol!

So what organization? Maybe someone will sponsor her. Let us know.

That’s something I would do but I don’t think my mom would ever do that.

My aunt just had a front tooth pulled, despite all recommendations from dentists that it would only be slightly more expensive to save the tooth, and would be much healthier in the long run. I hate to admit it, but the first thing I thought was oh great, now my new inlaws will think my family is a bunch of hicks. I already have a brother who looks like a mountain man, but I’m used to that
