Bride wearing adult braces

I'm in adult braces, and I won't get them off for at least two years. Is it selfish of me to push the wedding date until I get them off? Anyone say "screw it!" and tie the knot in their braces? Should I wait, or should I just do it?

    I'd personally say wait. I currently have braces..it's been about a year. They tell me I only have about 4 more months left (so February-ish), and so that gives me hopefully plenty of wiggle room for a late June wedding. I'd be lying if I said this wasn't a factor in scheduling that date. I have the white ceramic brackets on top, so the braces aren't super overt, however, food gets stuck in them, they're super uncomfortable all the time and I just don't want to deal with it. I also just had major jaw and nose surgery 2 months ago, and i was SO thankful i was able to schedule it with what will hopefully be plenty of time for most of the swelling to subside and function to return.

    But, as always, do what you think is right for you

    Hey, I can understand your situation. My marriage was scheduled when I started thinking about having braces. Normal braces would take at least two years to straighten the teeth. But, I couldn't wait for so long as I wanted them to be fixed before my marriage. So, I chose to have six month braces from Houston , which took only six months to straighten my teeth.
