Greetings. I would rather wish to understand the cause of Sudden excessive hair loss in you.  Yes finasteride  does have side effects but since you have a long time for your wedding, its ok, since finasteride  completely washes out of the system in seven days after you stop  taking it . I hpe you are also taking proper hair growth lotions and adequate nutritious diet and supplements if necessary.  See / follow up with a  qualified dermatologist near you .
