A lot of people feel like they want to do something big for their wedding day—a surprise dance, a performance by someone whom their partner adores, or a change of outfit. But recently, this new trend has come to light, where the brides take some time out from their wedding ceremony to chop their hair off—it’s a trend that’s perfect for you to make a statement and has definitely become one of brides’ favorites.
Grace Williams’s Chop Story
Grace Williams, who recently married her sweetheart, decided to try this trend as a nod to their first date. She said her partner loved her short hair back then, so she decided to chop it off mid-wedding to surprise him. As her parents’ house was her wedding venue, she luckily got a hold of her hairdresser, who has been giving her a haircut ever since she was a kid, for the makeover on her special day. She was absolutely in love with her partner’s reaction. She said she would forever remember the moment he saw her in short hair on their wedding day.
Briana Kinney’s Chop Story
Briana Kinney is another bride who shared her experience of trying this wedding chop trend. While some brides do it to surprise their partners, others do it for a cause, and Briana was the latter bride. She got the idea to chop her hair off from a TikTok video she saw. She wanted to do it in honor of her and her fiancé’s grandmothers. This was their way to feel their grandmothers’ presence on their special day. The whole event of them chopping their hair off was recorded by Briana’s videographer and received a lot of love and positive feedback on social media.
Tips for a Wedding Chop
If you want to try the trend at your wedding too, there are a few tips you should keep in mind. Firstly, make sure you plan this in advance. If you really want to try this trend, go for a look you have done before so that you have an idea of how it will turn out. Pick a hairstylist who has done your hair before so that they can handle it on the big day as well. Opt for a haircut that can be done in under 30 minutes so that it does not mess up your whole schedule. And keep your videographers and photographers ready for the big reveal.
