I think you have to look beyond your hair. One of my worst worst features about myself is my nose. It’s huge and I hate the shape too. Due to this, I hate side profile photos of me. At a recent wedding I went to as a guest the photographer got a photo of me and my SO as we went to kiss, though we both saw him there last minute and laughed. When I first looked at the photo I was immediately drawn to my nose and hated the photo…however, absolutely everyone (my partner included) love the photo and say ‘look how happy you both look. Look how much love there is in this photo’…..now when I see this photo I’m mainly drawn to the way my SO is looking at me and the smiles we both have.
Im sure you’ll see beyond your hair too.

Thanks again everyone. I’m gradually getting there with it now and seeing it for what it is. I’m still a little anxious for the photos but I am beginning to think realistically now and trust that someone, whether it be the groom, a bridesmaid or the photographer, would have told me if I looked terrible. Just have to wait on the photos now and keep my mental state over it in check until then!

Please take this from someone who can relate. It rained on my wedding day and I had my hair down in curls. By the time I got to the reception my hair was less then ideal and in some of my pictures it was the same case. I still got pleanty of pictures where my hair looked lovely and I”m sure you will as well.
This is such a minor detail fo your wedding day, do not let it consume you.

jojumore : Thank you, that is very encouraging. I didn’t think to take extra curling equipment with me or anything like that and after it happened, it all moved so fast that I didn’t really have time to think about it or do anything about it so I have that little background irritation of thinking I should have changed it! But the fact is, it was all part of our special day and maybe the photos will be more authentic that way. And like you, I did get photos of it before the weather had its way with me!
