If you want an updo, just get clip-in extensions!  Soooo much easier!  I got some natural hair ones and love them… and I never thought I’d be the type.

I’ve been having this same thought.  I’ve been growing mine out and it’s kind of a pain.  Also even though I have a lot of hair it’s very fine, so it’s not even like length is my major problem.  Ah well, I figured longer hair will give me more options, even if those options involve chopping some off.

I grew my hair out some for my wedding because I’ve almost always had long hair. it’s very “me,” and I wanted to look like “me” on my wedding day. Also, because I was planning to (and did) wear my hair down.

lol I too have been growing my hair out. I do not know why either. I’ll chop it off after the wedding.  I make sure I have a lot of poney tails on hand.

You dont need your hair long for an updo. Shoulder length hair is just fine 🙂

@stargurl: you don’t, but the length can substitute for volume on us fine-haired folks!

Thats true. I have thick hair and I believe lmos87 stated her hair is thick… I had my hair trial and my hair is passed my shoulders and my head hurt like crazy! I’m chopping it all off and just curling it now to give it a updo look without it actually needing to be up…

I am too! But I do know why! Two good friends got married recently and they wanted not only an up do but also wanted curls and curls make your hair look shorter. They wanted the back of their neck covered (as I do) and one of them had to wear extensions in order to achieve this result . 

I don’t want my hair down completely, but I want it to go down to my shoulders in curls with a semi up do and that’s difficult if you don’t have long hair.

If you don’t have a problem with extensions, then don’t sweat it! cut it now and let it grow a bit healthier for your big day! 🙂

I just got engaged and our tentative date is 10 months out. I’m growing out my hair so that I’ll have options when the date gets closer. If I want to wear it short I can always get it cut, but this way I have options and can think about what I want to do. I also have super thick hair, but I figure I can use all the length I can manage, so that I can do an updo or wear it down but curled, etc.

I do plan to go to my hairdresser a few times to check for split ends and to get my hair “texturized,” which makes thick hair much more manageable since it removes a lot of the weight.

You really don’t need long hair for a beautiful wedding ‘do.  A friend of mine has chin-length hair, and she had GORGEOUS finger waves for her wedding.  It was my favorite wedding hairstyle ever.

Here is what it looked like, but she also had a veil:

Very chic & glamorous!
