My fiancé and I are getting married in 3 years, 3 months, 19 days (not that I'm counting down the days or anything 😉) and I have been planning everything down to the letter. The venue, our dresses, the catering- I even made my fiancé's veil for the wedding as a wedding gift. Needless to say, we have a specific image in mind for our wedding and everything has been going smoothly.
Unfortunately, last week I was diagnosed with a brain tumor the size of a shooter marble in my right frontal lobe that requires surgery to remove. This will mean shaving half my head and receiving a very large scar that won't grow hair back after it heals. Now my hair already grows at a ridiculously slow rate (barely 2 inches a year), but depending on the biopsy results of the tumor, I may need Chemo Therapy to help prevent regrowth which means there's a high chance my hair will fall out.
Daes anyone have any ideas or suggestions on how I can keep my appearance that of a beautiful bride and not have people focusing on my lack of hair or watching me with pity rather than happiness as I walk down the aisle?
(P.S. Also, my oh-so supportive family have already made "Bride of Frankenstein" jokes since it's a "Halloween Party". It's an elegant Friday the 13th Wedding in October, not a Halloween party. Please don't make suggestions about costumes or adding fake scars along the rest of my exposed skin? Thanks.)
