If you pierce, go to a tattoo/piercing parlor with good reviews.

I had mine piereced at Claires – all holes had to be piereced at least twice (I have 4) because of infections.

When I have kids and they want their ears pierced, I will be taking them to a tattoo/piercing parlor.

PLUS, your ears heal faster and you may be able to switch out your starter studs faster!
OR you may be able to pick out a nice pair to start with that will work for the wedding – you never know!

@mademoisellesacha:  you can get kits to convert pierced earrings to clip ons!

Oh yeah, as other commenters pointed out- if you do get them pierced, do not wear anything heavy. Stick to studs or lightweight dangly ones. I’ve found that Etsy is a great source for inexpensive earrings, and many sellers are willing to do custom work.

I have no piercings and plan to wear my hair up. I’ve never needed earrings to complete a look, and my bridal look won’t be any different.

@SunflowerGarden:  I was going to suggest an impressive shiny hair piece too and you beat me to it! πŸ™‚

@mademoisellesacha:  My ears aren’t pierced either and I sometimes wear clip on earrings. It could just be me but they almost never fail to give me a terrible headache! It’s so bad I only wear them when I want to look especially pretty for the initial wow factor and then stuff them in my purse after half an hour! lol Maybe buy a cheap pair just to see whether or not you feel comfortable with them on before you make any decisions? A headache is the last thing you want on your wedding day! 

I don’t think getting your ears pierced now is such a great idea, honestly. They might take a longer time to heal and then you’d be in a bit of trouble on your wedding day. 

Again, I vote for an eye-catching hair piece! πŸ™‚

@mademoisellesacha:  

Clip ons? (I’ve seen some pretty convincing ones) or magnets seem good.

You need to be you for your wedding. Unpierced ears and all. πŸ™‚ Don’t do it just for one day.

Yikes, the people saying that you might not have enough time to heal are making me nervous. I’m also a piercing late bloomer. I got my ears pierced in late January so I can wear earrings at my late May wedding and afterward. I had mine done at a piercing parlor, and they recommended that I wait 6-12 weeks before changing my earrings. Coincidentally, I also ride horses, though not competitively. I have small studs, and I haven’t had any issues with them catching on my helmet.

@mademoisellesacha:  You could always go for clip ons, like many have said. I was reading some trivia for a popular movie once and found out that the main actress (can’t remember who) didn’t have pierced ears. Something about the earrings was necessary for the scene or whatever; anyway, they had them converted into clip ons so she could still wear them for the scene. So nothing’s impossible.

I don’t know how much it costs, but maybe you could look into finding a place that could convert earrings into clip ons for you and then start looking for something you like, without feeling like your choices are restricted?

Well, my ears have been pierced since the day I turned 12, so I’m not in the same situation, but it’s really not a pain at all to keep them clean and allow them to heal well, especially regular earlobe piercings. You just wipe them with a saline solution in the morning and evening and twist the earrings a few times for 1-2 months. I think I changed my earrings after about 2 months to be on the safe side. I say go for it, especially if you like the idea of having them pierced not just for the wedding but afterwards too. It’s a fun way to glam up!

I wouldn’t pierce them now and wear heavy earrings on your wedding day, as a PP said. They will probably really hurt at the end of the day and may get infected. I used to work at a bead store, and quite often we could turn a pair of pierced earrings into clip-ons, or we would just make a pair. If you have a bead/arts and crafts store near you, an employee should be able to make you a simple pair, if they do that sort of thing. They were always SO much cheaper than what you could find pre-made, too.
