    Do it! The red lips give you a super glam look, and with a white dress, it will look so pretty! 

    I was scared to do red lips (because I never wear red lipstick) but I spent alot of time at Sephora and found the right shade for me. I am so happy I wore red lips because it just made me feel extra special. 🙂 Just remeber to reapply cause I forgot to, and it faded after so much smooching!

    you look so pretty! go with it, but also think if you will feel “you” with the red lipstick on your wedding, those pictures will last forever. 🙂

    You could seriously do both! What do you feel more comfortable/glamorous in? I always feel like I photograph better with red lipstick, but I’m worried it’s more of a hassle on the day to deal with, in terms of reapplications and kissing people.

    Also, I do think that red lips instantly projects a kind of Old Hollywood, vintage, rockabilly glamour. I don’t know if that fits with your wedding look, theme, dress etc. But it definitely suits you!

    First of all, I have to say that you are STUNNING and would look beautiful with either. I personally would vote no, not because it doesn’t look good on you, but because I would be afraid it would look dated. It’s a popular trend right now, and I would be worried that I would look back in 10 or 20 years and wonder what I was thinking. I LOVE your makeup in the first photo you posted, so pretty and fresh!

    Red lipstick is a classic, not a trend. Nude lips are trend. As that trend fades, you might see more red lips, but it’s because people are returning to the classic, not because red is suddenly trendy.

    I’m not normally a fan of red lips, but I think people with dark/black hair look amazing with it on!!

    consider yourself lucky, and rock that awesome red lipstick!!

    I like you in the red but I prefer a nude with a wedding dress unless you’re going with a retro pin up type of look.

    YES, you look amazing in red!  I would suggest wearing it just for the photos and ceremony only, and then carrying around a second color for later. something that’s easy to apply so you are not constantly sneaking off to touch up your color all night.

    @raisedonrobbery:  I have a Spehora brand red lipstick and it will literally stay on until the next day. I love it! It has lasted me over 3 years because I only use it for special occassions, like weddings 🙂
