    I’d say to stay away from the scissors until you know how you want it on your wedding day! It will give you a lot more options~

    I have to say I’m not too crazy about the hair trial photo you posted. but I do LOVE your short haircut! I could see you with that and putting some kind of flowered headband in it. 

    the thing is, you will probably grow 4-5 inches by december. I suggest not cutting it until october or november. then find a stylist who can help you come up with ideas for hair that length. if you don’t like any of the ideas, cut it short. 

    if you really want to emulate the etsy photo, have you considered adding on a hair piece in the back?  like a faux bun.  a salon might help you find one that matches your hair and looks real.

    You look beautiful with short hair, and the long hair you’ve got now looks great too.  I would personally grow it, just because (as someone else said) you can always try it a few ways and then cut it if you decide you want to.  Side note – maybe get a professional cut now… even if its just a trim/style.  It might make the middle stage more bearable and give you some extra ideas.  Either way,you are beautiful and you’re going to look beautiful…

    @Jabberwocky:  my hair acts the same way. I tried to grow it out this summer and it drove me nuts. I decided to go with my comfortable short hair but added extensions to my bangs to match the length on the sides and am in love with it now. I am also getting married this summer and knew long hair would drive me mental as nice as it might look.

    Maybe try some clip in extensions for a few days to see if you really want to go long?

    @Jabberwocky:  Your short ‘do is super cute, but if I were you I would grow your hair until the wedding so you have more options when it comes to styling.

    I went from mid-back length to above-the-shoulders last year, before we got engaged. Shorter hair is so liberating and a fun change, but I am now desperately trying to grow it out before the wedding. I am planning to wear some kind of headpiece too, and I think having more hair to work with makes things infinitely easier.

    If you’re going through that awkward growing-out stage, maybe ask your hairdresser for some advice on how to style it. I think once it gets a little longer you could do some messy waves and it would look really chic.

    While more hair options is appealing, I think it’s important to look (and feel) like you! I definitely think that those flower pieces would look awesome in your ‘regular’ do, and short haired brides and beautiful but if you’d rather wait and grow it out a little while longer, I don’t see why you shouldn’t/wouldn’t be able to just cut it then. 🙂

    There is no question, in my mind.

    Cut it short, it suits you far better. 🙂
