    Honestly, I would get them at least a WEEK in advance. I LOVE eyelash extensions but sometimes the glue can irritate your eyes a little (from the initial application) and they can be RED afterwards and it can take a few days for you to not look like you are stoned out of your mind! 

    They give you a little hose usually that blows air if your eyes feel like they are burning while they are applying the lashes (its just the fumes from the glue) but it didn’t help me as much as most people. So until you know if you are sensitive to the glue, like I am, I would get them at least a week before any big event. 

    Hope that helps! They are really amazing and worth it!

    @cologirl:  Yes, they should look great for at least 2-3 weeks before you need a fill. If you are worried maybe go 5 days before.

    My hairstylist put lash extensions on me and used what she called a “hypoallergenic light adhesive”. It was black, chunky and disgusting! It looked like I was wearing fake eyelashes and tried to hide them by gooping black mascara all over my lids.

    To top it all off, I had a reaction to the adhesive and was constantly rubbing my eyes, causing them to turn red and look like I had just been crying. I would try them out way before the wedding to see if you even like how they look.
