Have you ever had long hair?  Are you going to keep it after the wedding?  It is up to you and what makes you comfortable.  If I normally had short hair, I would be inclined to keep it short.  Like you said, I would want to look like myself.  I guess you could always grow it out, and if you don’t like it cut it off before the wedding.  I have seen a ton of adorable short hair brides, so don’t feel like you HAVE to grow your hair out to look like a bride.

I’m not really sure what you should do…. but your avator is a old Jayhawk and therefore I need to say Rock Chalk!

Haha, I was about to write a post on the exact same topic.  It sounds like I have the exact same haircut as you except my front is only about to my chin.  I’ve been engaged since September and had been trying to grow my hair out so I could pull it up (my wedding is in September).  2 weeks ago, i’d had enough and I cut it short again. My fiance told me he fell in love with me when I had short hair and that was all I needed.  I love my hair now, but same as you, my dress has a sweetheart neckline and all the pics I kept showing short hair.  So now I’m on the fence.  I’ve lately been toying with growing the front long enough to pull back (sounds like yours might be there already) and then getting some click in extensions (jessica simpson has some affordable ones) and having my hairdresser fake the illusion of long hair by making a little knot at the base of my neck with the fake hair. I’m seeing my hairdresser in 3 weeks so I’ll find out if it’s even possible.  Your hair is longer than mine so I think you could defintely look into some clip ins.  That way, you can have your cute hair without all the grow out issues.

I think it depends on how you want to wear your hair. If you want an up-do, then I don’t think you need to let it grow out. If you want your hair down, though, and all the down styles you like are with longer hair, you’ll probably want to let your hair grow out a bit. I will say, though, that after we got married my husband made a point of telling me that he loved how I looked like me. I think he was afraid I would do some crazy bee hive thing with my hair or something, but I ended wearing it down, just like every other day of the week 🙂

I would grow it.  You can always get a haircut last minute if you change your mind.

Honestly, I don’t believe in changing your hair just for the wedding.  I had long hair before and after because I love having long hair and I wouldn’t have chopped it all of before the wedding because that isn’t me.  So I don’t understand the appeal of growing out your hair even if you hate it just for the wedding so you don’t look like yourself.

I have the same hairstyle, too, and I think Im going to keep it. I don’t want to look bad for the next 8 months while it grows out, just for one day! I say keep it the way it looks best on you – if having your hair shorter makes you look good, then keep it that way instead of having to deal with hair you don’t like for the next however long it takes to grow out. The style you have looks so chic and classy, you can definitely rock that on your wedding day.

I grew mine out and had extensions put in to add fullness and length.  You’ll need to grow it long because once it’s curled, it’s much shorter.
