If you’re already thinking that you won’t like it looking back at it, take it out. You probably won’t care in the future that you didn’t wear it, but it sounds like you might care if you do wear it.

If you have to ask, you should probably take it out. Maybe just for the official pics and ceremony and put it back in at the reception?

I think you should keep it! I love monroe piercings. 

Just take it out for a few pictures though to change it up.

@beautifullyboheamian:  Can you see the hole in your face when you do close up photos? Personally I think it would be best to leave it out… I think it looks really cute, but maybe for classy wedding photos it’s not the best choice. However, if you’re going to be able to see the hole on your face, I would recommend keeping it! Trust me, I’m a big fan of piercings… I have 13 in my ear, my tongue done, and my navel. But I will only be wearing one set of studs and no tongue ring for the wedding…

I think you could easily leave it in and it would look fine. The only thing is that it kind of looks like you have something on your face – it’s not super obvious that it’s a piercing (at least in the pic you posted), so that might be a good reason to take it out for your wedding day. It really depends on whether or not you think in 10 years you’ll wish you had taken it out. 🙂

I like it, but I agree with the above posters that if you are worried about regretting it, then you should at least take it out for the portraits (not sure if you are able to take it out and back in so easily). If you are able to take it out and in fairly easily, then how about wearing it for the reception, but keeping it out for the formal bridal pictures and ceremony? Best of both worlds.

Personally, I’d go without.

Piercings are a current trend / fashion statement there is a good chance they won’t be as big a thing in 5, 10 or 25 years.

Your Wedding pics will still be around

That said…

In all honestly Wedding pics “naturally” date themselves… as they are set at a particular moment in time (no really “timeless” Wedding Pics… classic YES… timeless NO)

So no matter what you choose, your Wedding Pics will always say the 20-teens (decade between 2010 and 2020)

That said, if do chose to wear the Monroe, and facial piercing become a non-thing by 2016, your pictures will date themselves even sooner.

So ya, I’d go without.

Hope this helps,

Keep it! It’s beautiful! Don’t be afraid to have a unique and interesting wedding that feels as “you” as possible.

I don’t think too many wedding photos are so close up so it won’t really matter either way. 

I had a giant infection (yey for stress) at the side of my mouth on wedding day which was probably 3 times the size of your piercing and it isn’t really noticable (thank god) since wedding pics aren’t passport pics.

For the record, I think you look great with it in, so if you decide to wear it, rock on!
