    I have had a heavy weave of blonde in my hair for a few years, but I am a brunette. For my wedding, I think I am going dark since it’s natural. I don’t want to look back and not like what I liked now. I want to look more like “me” So highlights do look pretty, but if you have had your hair like this, you should keep it. It will look good in the pictures since it’s so dark. I also don’t think you should try anything so close, but it’s up to you if you want a different look.

    I would absolutely go for it!  You have plenty of time to change it back if you don’t like it.  🙂

    Start out with just a little, sometimes a little bit is all you really need to give it a pop. What you want is for people to say wow you look gorgeous not wow you colored your hair. Less is more in this situation.

    I would not do anything drastic to your hair before the biggest day of your life. You want to be comfortable and look your best, if you end up not liking it you are kind of SOL. Your hair is fantastic as it is! 

    Actually… if you have a REALLY GREAT recommendation you could try a little bit of dimension coloring and that might make you feel better but be very careful! No caramel or blond or anything like that!

    I have also never colored my hair before either!

    My hair is as dark as yours & for some reason I just don’t think highlights look good w/ that dark of hair – I think it makes girls look washed out when you add a lighter brown/blondish highlight. And I am not a fan of reddish highlights in dark hair either….

    I say stick with normal look & don’t do any changes prior to the wedding, if anything you can experiment after.

    @Miltie:  OP, I think 3 months is till PLENTY of time to dye it back to your natural color if you don’t like highlights.  I think you could just go with some very subtle highlights – probably not all over but just a partial/crown.  Go to a reputable salon in your area and have a consultation before you try anything.
