@This Time Round: So informative and also very true, i appreciate your help definitely gives me something else to consider thank you!
@Bebealways: Thanks babe 🙂 even if i get an even smaller diamond so its just a glitery speck as opposed to a hole in my face :/
@kendra389: Yes you can see the hole and its annoying, maybe for the close ups my photgrapher may be able to photoshop it out haha

I would take it out. I think you have a really pretty face, but with the piercing, that’s what my eye is drawn to, not how pretty you are.

I usually don’t like that piercing, but I think it looks really good on you! With that said, I agree with others, take it out for the wedding 🙂
I’m actually keeping my nose ring in for my wedding photos… However it’s really small and 95% of people don’t notice it and it probably won’t show up in pictures.

Skip it. Its cute but like you said you may regret it. Better safe than sorry.

I had my lip pierced but took it out knowing that I wouldn’t want it for my wedding pics. I do have a tiny dot of a scar under my lip but it’s not too noticeable. This was my piercing.

Being a very pro-piercing kind of person, I would keep it in. Maybe you could get the stone changed to a tiny, delicate crystal so it is a bit more subtle for photos. That’s probably what I will do for my 2 lip piercings 🙂

@beautifullyboheamian: take it out. When I look back at all the photos of myself with facial piercings I have to shake my head. Not that it looks bad on you, but for a formal occasion I think it would look inappropriate. I would have loved for my tattoos to magically disappear on my wedding day, they didn’t look so great. At least with a piercing you have the option of taking it out.

Honest opinion – way better with it out. It’s distracting and takes away from your natural beauty.

It all comes down to the “feel” of your wedding – if it’s offbeat and funky, leave it in. But if you are going for more traditional and classic then take it out – you have a gorgeous classic beauty face and no one will miss a piercing 🙂
Not a facial piercing, but my inner conch piercing is approaching its 10th birthday, and I decided long ago on taking it out for the wedding because it just doesn’t fit with the classic look I’m trying for. I’m not even sure if I want to have anything in my 2nd earlobe holes.

i agree with the pps to take it out. not because it looks bad – but because your face should be the focus and i personally find it distracting from your pretty face!
you will always look like yourself without it – and there’ll be lots going on. likely more dramatic makeup, lashes, veil etc. i dont think you need the piercing too.

I would leave it in but get a very tiny diamond stud instead. If you have any doubts though, take it out. You don’t want any regrets about your pictures.
I have a nose piercing, have for 5 years, and I’m absolutely leaving it in! It’s a part of my face, and I love it.

I would leave it in. It’s part of who you are at this point in your life. I was going to put plugs in to ‘hide’ my gauges but decided to keep my tunnels in because it’s who I am, at least right now. Plus it’s really pretty, I love it.
I’m not sure why people think this is a new trend… it is definitely not, lol. Facial piercings are hundreds of years old and will continue to be around for hundreds of years still. People of all ages have them and that’s not going to change. I’m thinking about getting a Monroe piercing myself actually. =)

Many people do dislike piercings. Nobody can be critical of a beautiful, natural face. On a day to day basis, you do what you like for yourself, but on my wedding day, I personally would not want to be distracted by the thought that people are focused on the piercing instead of me.
