Brides with long hair

I'm growing my hair out for the wedding than SNIP!

Is anyone else chopping their long hair off after the wedding? And do you have your "married" style picked out?

This is what I am thinking of doing. I look at it, and I see FREEDOM!

    I was actually thinking of getting my hair permed with big loose waves. Not even sure if that's possible....

    I might chop my hair a little after the wedding, but I'm not sure yet. I am actually thinking of dying it a little because I haven't done that in years!

    @OTW - it is possible. My mom had farrah fosset waves when she was in college. (also had giant glasses - was hillarious)

    I want to chop my hair, by FH promised he would give me weekly scalp massages if I didnt. Bliss ^_^

    I FINALLY found the cut that works for me- short and adorable! But.... now I'm growing it out for the wedding. Then BAM! That shit is getting cut! Hell, I might just say F that noise and get extensions for the wedding instead. Long hair drives me crazy. In my job I have to pull it back and up anyway, and I put it up working out and usually on the weekends too, so it's pointless really.

    If my head wasn't the shape of a large pumpkin, I'd totally rock Katie Holmes mom bob.

    I have long hair and I always told my dh that after the wedding I'm chopping it off.. It's been 2 months since our wedding and I still haven't cut it.. I don't know what hair style I want or how short. We will see.

    YES!! I have been growing my hair out since December!! But I swear as soon as we get back form the honeymoon its GONE!!! at least to a manageable length... not ear lobe short but probably shoulder length! I'm glad I'm not the only one with this plan!

    Yup! I'm so ready to cut it. I've had it short before, so I'll probably go back to a similar style. I want it above my shoulders!

    If I cut my hair short it would look like a ball of frizz

    I had long hair my entire childhood, when i was 17 i got it cut up to my shoulders, with the bottom razed in a curl from my ears to my shoulders, i loved it. Now its long again so i can wear it in different styles for my wedding day, but after the wedding, im making an appt with a hairdresser in the town we honeymoon in, and having this shiz cut off at the shoulders. Im thinking just straight line though, i dont want to pay extra for the razing.

    Mine was down to my waist, but my hair stylist for the wedding asked if she could cut/style it a bit so that it would hold curl better.

    Now it's not quite to my elbow & I'm SO ready to chop it! I've mentioned going the day after the wedding to cut it but we'll see.

    I like Katie Holmes' bob, or Jennifer Aniston's, but my hair is so fine and straight it's a PITA :p

    I have been growing mine out for a long time too. I want to cut it after the wedding into a long bob, but I feel like I might regret it.

    I've always had long hair and I am pretty sure my hair would look terrible super short but I love the look on others!

    I'm having this issue too. I would like to chop it off after the wedding. I want an up-do but it's harder with long hair without it looking like a bee-hive.

    I'm so dang tempted but I just don't know. FH really likes my hair long but I cant take much more of it. I love it when I have time to style it and everything.... but I can't stand taking 20+ minutes just to blow dry it

    I have an entire Pinterest board entitled "Chopping my hair off after the wedding," not gonna lie - part of the reason I wanted to leave Tues instead of Mon for our HM was so I could get my hair cut before Puerto Rico.
