Thanks for your resp. I am really ugly. Since I am overwt I am just going to wear a plain black pantsuit. I look ugly in nice clothes. I can't afford to get hair done. If it was up to me I would hide in baqkground

welcome, renee19562009. i got married last year and my mom didn't want to be in the wedding pictures because she perceives herself as too fat and too ugly to have her picture taken. so i gave in and didn't pressure her, and now i have all these photos of DH and me and our family and friends but none with my mom. unfortunately, memory fades as time passes, so all we have left are photos, and when i'm looking at my wedding album in 20 years i'm going to wonder where my mom was. i guess my point is, suck it up for your son, like n2 said, and allow yourself to have fun for one day. it's not about how you look in pictures, it's the memories that the pictures evoke in the years to come.

I wouldn't spend money on getting my hair done either.

Hi,


I don't like being in pictures either (ahhh!!) but you know what - you describe yourself as "ugly" and I'm sure you're not as ugly as you think.
