- Wedding: June 2011
I really enjoy reading your conversations, and usually find all the answers to my questions by reading existing threads. So much accumulated knowledge in this place!
However, I get married in three weeks, and I am getting to the point where I am self-conscious about everything, even when I thought I had already made up my mind on hair/accessories. So I thought I’d ask for your wise advice. I had my make-up and hair trial about 3 weeks ago, and then locked myself in our guest room so my fiance would not see me on my wedding dress, taking a gazillion pictures of different hair-dos. I asked my make-up artist to do soft curls, and then I tried on my veil, and felt naked without a necklace. Especially when I put my hair up, which I liked a lot better, since my veil has a triangle shape, and it looks kind of odd with all the curly hair down
When I shared my photos with my mother and mother-in-law, they said they preferred my hair down, with no necklace, because: a) the neckline of the dress has a lot of beading going on, and b) I have “twin” moles/birthmarks on my chest that make necklaces look odd… my mom thinks the twin moles are cute and that they are enough for accessories. but she’s my mom and she thinks everything *me* is cute, and we disagree on that one..
So my questions/insecurities that keep me up at night (and that my fiance does NOT want to hear about) are:
* hair-up or down?
* necklace or no necklace? what type?
I’m wearing a short choker that my fiance’s aunt sent me, that goes above the “twin” birthmarks. I feel it looks odd. that’s why I usually wear more visible/thicker necklaces, so i can hide them 🙁 I went to Etsy and really liked this Calla Lilly necklace, and this one with orchid flowers.
This is my wedding gown
Me with my hair up:
Me with my hair down (i don’t seem very happy about it):
Hair straight (and another style of necklace.)
any advice is appreciated..
