- Wedding: July 2019
I’m in a really big predicament here and I just don’t know what to do. I had to get a biopsy done to check for skin cancer. They took some skin from all over my face and left me with scars and bruises but the worst part is that I can’t wear ANY makeup for at least a week. I didn’t think it was going to be a big deal so I didn’t research the procedure and now I’m totally lost. After it was done my Doctor just dropped “oh by the way you won’t be able to wear makeup for a week.” I can’t put ANYTHING on my face except soap and water and my wedding is this Friday in two days. I’m a full face everyday girl so most people going to the wedding have never seen me without my makeup and with the new scars I can’t even look at my reflection in the mirror. I have family from out of state who are here already and took off from work to be at our wedding and now I don’t even want to go. I’ve called my doctor earlier today explaining the situation and she said I’d absolutely be at risk of infection if I wore makeup even for one day before it heals. I’m so stupid for scheduling this right before my wedding. I don’t even know what I was thinking. Now I have the choice of getting married looking like a zombie or calling off the wedding entirely which I don’t think I can do to everyone. I tried my dress on earlier without makeup and before I felt so beautiful in it but now it just feels like a cruel joke. I know you probably think I’m being overdramatic but I’m never without makeup not even to the grocery store. I have literally no eyebrows or eyelashes without makeup and gross skin. I feel so naked I just want to lock myself in my room and sleep through the wedding. Sorry for this poorly written rant. I’m hoping someone here can come up with a way I can get married without looking too scary but I’m not sure if that’s possible!
