I was sad to see that, among the many bride-type specific boards, there isn't one for alternative types. What do I mean by alternative?
Tattooed, pierced, unnaturally dyed/oddly cut hair, and/or women with a very specific style that may fall outside the traditional (black wedding dress, anyone?).
I'm a green-haired, tattooed color woman with fifteen piercings. Currently I'm in the process of finishing my left sleeve, and three of my piercings are on my face. My FI, who is very conservative looking, loves my personal style and doesn't want me to change a thing. My mother has embraced the crazy hair and asked if she can put a streak of it in her own hair for the wedding (which I love!), but is trying to convince me to go face-piercingless. Obviously, I'm going to choose whatever feels right to me in the end.
However, I wanted to ask if any of my fellow alternative looking brides have encountered difficulties or have advice to give. Did you change yourself for the wedding and regret it? Did you not hide/change something and regret that? Impart your wisdom, share your stories, talk about your worries, hopes, fears.
