Pre Wedding Chop?

Ever heard of the post wedding chop?

The post wedding chop, or PWC is when a bride grows her hair out for her wedding day and then drastically changes her hairstyle.  A chop, if you will..  

But what about a good ole "pre wedding chop?"  Because if you're like me, and your engagement is 18 months long you start to look like this before your big day:

Yeah, it's all fun and games until someone tells you your hairstyle reminds them of "Big Love."  Rrg.  I've let my hair grow for the past 12 months, and it's getting a little out of control. It's nice to be able to put my hair in a pony tail or twist it into a topknot bun, but I want something else.  Something a little, er, different. 

Something like this:

I'm toying with the idea of chopping it all off (for a good cause) and forgetting about wedding day hairstyles all together.  One less thing to obsess over! But the thing is, I am so scared I will hate it.  A drastic cut wouldn't leave me with many options if I change my mind.  There wouldn't be much that could be done to fix me up, outside of extensions and I need the expense of extensions like I need another hole in my head.  

But look at these lovely short haired brides!

Ok, how much do I love the last one?  They both have amazing hair--I think I could be happy with either 'do.  Kidding (a little)!  

Does anyone else have the urge to chop all their hair off before the big day?  Has anyone actually done this?

  1. Oh my goodness - Long hair is killing me.

    I refuse to chop it off before the wedding, but I don't know if I can wait until afterwards!
