    Do it! if you love it you will feel more confident and beautiful, and that’s more important than hair length.

    @goingtotherooftopoflove:  if you love that style on yourself, do it.  as you said, the curls won’t last in your hair anyways and trust me, you will be unhappy with all of your pics.

    fyi, i always have short hair too, pixie cut, and i let my hair grow in a bit longer and thicker for my wedding mainly so that my veil and fascinator had more to hold onto and give me a few other options for styles.  well, i wish that i had cut it.  my wedding hair was just a much, much longer and heavier version of what i normally have and i regret not going back to my cute short hair.  it doesn’t look bad but in pics, i can tell.

    please keep us updated.

    First off I prefer the picture of your with the shorter hair. Also from reading your comment it sounds like it will be easier to manage for you day. I’ve been in a few weddings and what I see is the brides don’t have much time to fuss about what they look like after they get ready in the morning. (This is just my perceptive) Partly because there are so many people they want to talk to and vice versa but the bigger part is they are having such a great time they stop caring. At my cousin’s her bustle broke (her husband stepped on it) I offered to help her fix it and she told me not to worry.


    Now for your mother… my mom is Italian and in her culture it is the mom that plans the wedding. She let her mom have all the decisions.. So she thought it would be the same when it came to mine and my sister’s wedding. Sadly she was very wrong. So I can empathize with you.  Do you already know that she likes your hair longer? Because maybe you can talk to her first… and maybe… just maybe after you tell her how much you love your hair that way, how many other people love it (my mom is always more swayed if she knows other agree with me) and how much easier it will be on that day… maybe she will agree. Or you can just do it and deal with her hopefully brief anger. When I pick something that I know she won’t like I try to follow it up with something I know she really wants. (Something that I want too) It reminders her I do care about her opinion. Or talk since your wedding is so close, talk about something she helped you pick in the past.


    I hope that helps! If you every need to vent about an overbearing mother, you can always message me.

    The short hair is adorable on you, and if that’s what makes you feel your best, you should go for it. If you want to try one more idea for curls before you cut it, you could see if there are any salons in your area that do digital perms. They make pretty natural looking curls that should stay for a few months. If that sounds like too much of a hassle, definitely go for the cut.

    You look older with short hair, and not in a bad way. You look more mature and ready to be getting married, whereas with the longer hair, you look like you’re studying for midterms. No offense whatsoever, as you look cute in both, I just think it’s a more adult look to have the short hair. Especially if you’re happier when it’s short!

    I say Do It! Especially if you already know you’ll love it. And I also like the short hair pic better too. Good luck! I hope you love your hair no matter which style you choose!

    It isnt in the rule book that you MUsT have long hair ror your wedding.  You need to look and feel your best and if your beat ia with short hair then good lors, ROCK it!!!  For the record, I think the shorter hair looks better too!

    @goingtotherooftopoflove:   I voted to cut it.  You have a fabulous smile, and I think not having hair at your shoulders emphasizes your smile.

    Go for it!  You can rock short hair, and i love the idea of having a pretty clip in it.  That dress is amazing too!  If you know you’ll feel beautiful and confident, that’s all that matters!

    I think the short one looks amazing on you πŸ™‚ But if you have a certain hairstyle that you would like to do and it requires some hair or something to put an extension to then def. leave it unitil after the wedding. If you dont have any styles yet in mind I would say go with the shorter one πŸ™‚
