Im getting marraged in 6 months to my partner of 6, 1/2 years. we are eloping so no white dress and long flowing veil its not us anyway. my dress is purple and knee lenght and DP is wearing kilt and converse. He has long hair and mineis currently blue ans purple in an inverted bob. I had a major phobia of hairdressers, havedone for years so until feb 2011 I had very long fizzy hair and bad depresstion. But as my depresstion got better I want a chance so I finnaly with the support of DP had it cut into a curly bobwhich I loved.
The thing is I have had change hairdresserswhich has turned out to be a good thing becuse I feel free to rock the realy happy confident me now hence the the mad blue andpurple hair and taking it into an inverted bob. Im finnaly feeling like me a realy looking forward to be Mrs…. and with that has come a real gut urge to cut my hair really short.
I feel like I still look like the young,hippy, happy, young, girl i was at school that was bullied and always did what I was told.Rather then a so to be Mrs… who rides a motorbike, loves rock music, has a boho house of her own and the coolest rock star 5year old son. I want people to see that I have changed and am livingmy life now not the one all my family hoped I would have.
But am I mad for wanting to cut it short now with6months togo?
sorry the picture is the wrong way around but I thought It would help to see was I look like the backs all blue and purple.

There is no one way to be an amazing bride! You should wear your hair exactly how you want it/like it, today, every day and on your wedding day.
I adore short hair and rocked a really short pixie cut (think Halle Berry at her prime) for a long time. I really don’t get the whole “must-grow-hair-out-for-the-wedding” nonsense. If a woman likes long hair, awesome. If not, also awesome. Do what you love, not what bridal magazines or Cosmopolitan say, haha

@rainbowbee: Well, are you asking if you would look better with short hair rather than long, or just if you should do it?
Given your facial structure, I think a hair style of at least chin length would look far, far more attractive. However I agree with the PP that you should do what you like. I suspect that sentiment is what’s driving the “go for it” votes.

Thank you both for your replies.
@cdncinnamongirl: Im thinking the same. Its odd how the presure of one day can make me question a choice that any other year I would just make based on my feeling at the time thank you for reminding me I should think of myself as person not a bride to be.
@valintine: I guess I was asking both but as I just wrote above I should be thinking is right for me as myself . so i guess the other question is it going to suit me is more pressing.

I cut my short! I feel sassy with it. I didn’t feel the need to have long hair for the wedding.
Go for it! Do what makes you comfortable and happy. 🙂

Go with whatever makes you happy and comfortable. I cut off 4 inches of hair and added highlights 9 days before our wedding.
Then, 3 months later, I had the urge to cut it even shorter (and I did!)
