Oh my goodness, I haven’t heard THIS one before! If I were you, I would probably just ask her how long she planned on keeping this hair color. If it’s just to see if she likes it, I wouldn’t make a fuss. I hate myself for saying this (because I would probably wig if I were in your shoes) but I think it’s best to just wait this one out. If she ends up wanting to keep it, then I think you have to decide if it matters that much to you that you might have to risk really upsetting her by asking her to change it. I mean, it is her hair. Ohhhh this is hard.

I would say don’t even worry about it. Her roots will be showing long before then and there’s a good chance she’ll change her her. “Permanent” means it won’t wash out, but most people will dye over it again. I have friends who change their hair color every other week, lol. I wouldn’t worry until about a week before your wedding- if it’s still pink then, then I think it’s safe to say something.

I really don’t think you can say anything. You don’t own her hair. 

I also don’t see why pink hair would be a problem in your photos. If I don’t see the problem (I’ve dyed my hair only once and it was to brown), then she is even less likely to see the problem.

Don’t worry, in a couple months then say something like jokingly around her about it hoping she gets the hint, closer to it she can change it back again.

She may already be planning to dye it back to a normal color before your wedding.  One of my BMs currently has electric blue hair (and has had it since Halloween), but I know she plans to go back to some sort of natural color before January 14th.  So no worries!  You have months between now and then.

Unfortunately you can’t dictate her hair color for youretire engagement. I wouldn’t say anything until much closer to the wedding.

I have dyed my hair with permanent pink, black, purple and super bright red dye- none of these colors last 8 months… they need to be dyed again to look good at all in about 3 or 4 months. You’ll be okay.

It is most definitely not your place.

I don’t think you have anything to worry about. Like PP said, the color needs to be reapplied at least once a week so the color wont fade too much. 8 months will give her hair enough time for the roots to grow out and she will probably dye her hair a different color by then maybe even a “normal.” If you do bring it up don’t make a big deal about it, just bring it up casually not I’m-having-melt-down-over-your-hair kind of way.

It is entirely possible that between now and then she’ll decide to change it back.

However, if she doesn’t, it really isn’t your place to try and get her to do so.  It is her hair and you can’t dictate what she does with it.  Hopefully she means enough to you that you can overlook the pink in your wedding pictures and just be happy to share the day with her.
