12 ways to embrace your gray hair on your wedding day

Posted by

A few weeks ago, we got not one but two messages asking us to feature “silver-haired” married folks. Did the stars align? Was it pure coincidence our readers wanted to see more gray hair wedding inspiration? Either way, it was a resounding “Fuck yes!” from us. We love gray-haired brides.

Here's one of the messages:

I recently stopped dying my hair and let my natural silver hair grow out and I love it. I have some vague thoughts of renewing my vows at some point and started looking around for some content on silver haired brides. Maybe my searching skills are not cutting it. I found brides over 40, a very few of which have gray hair, and a lot of gray dresses. If you've got an awesome post I missed, I'd love it! If it doesn't exist, it would be such a great post! Silver hair is so beautiful, tons of people took the plunge during lockdown, and there are lots of people out there redefining gray hair.

So, we turned to Facebook and asked YOU to send us photos of you rocking grey hair at your wedding. The response? Sheer staggering silver-haired sexiness. Whether they're mature newlyweds or have been rocking grey hair early on, these married folks did not hold back on their glorious grey-haired wedding photos.
