I’ve been reading the posts on eyelash extensions, and had gotten to the point where I believed that I NEEDED them. I finally mentioned it to my FI – he burst out laughing and said that if he could ask for one thing on our wedding day, it would be no fake eyelashes.
I love this man for bringing me back down to earth! 🙂 We are so NOT FANCY (it’s a miracle if I brush my hair in the morning), and it’s a real stretch to imagine myself with eyelash extensions. That said, I still understand lusting after them!

LOL I just put up a post around the same time as you asking if any girls have had them done 🙂
I’ve never seen them in person, but it appears that the “natural extensions” are so barely even noticiable….arggg…I’m still on the fence b/c if I’m going to spend so much money on them I want there to be a noticable difference.
Plus, my FI would kill me if he knew I was going to spend over $100 for some eyelashes that last 2 weeks 🙂

haha men are great sometimes. I think if I told my guy I wanted eyelash extensions he’d go “ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm what?”

they look cool but its one of those things that I always think “okay.. yes, but would i REALLY miss it if I didn’t have it” that brings me down 🙂

- Wedding: June 2010 - Ceremony - First United Methodist Church; Reception - My parents' house!
lol. this is why you don’t ask guys that question. he’d just see them, think you look fabulous, and not know the difference. you could chalk it up to mascara. :p

i didnt want to go as far as permanent extensions or anything, but i did rock some false lashes in my MU trial and LOVED the look…even FI, who had though the idea was “weird” had to admit it did enhance the look!

I had some semi-permanent ones put on today– one of my bridesmaids bought them for me as a gift, so I went.
My fiance’ knew I was going to get them done, and I still don’t think he’s noticed that I’m wearing them. lol.
I have been loving the last 12 hours, I feel so pretty.

haha I too read the posts and mentioned it to my FI and I too was met with laughter. I think he made a smart ass coment suggesting he get some sort of procedure, I don’t remember. I told him I was being serious and he agreed that extended lashes would be okay for special occasions but I could not have eyelash extensions for everyday wear. I guess boys keep us in tough with reality but I’m still doing falsies for the wedding.

- Wedding: April 2010 - Marie Gabrielle, Dallas
I wrote a post about it and mr. fro yo is still making fun of me. But that’s ok, he’ll see how great they will look. 🙂
@: AnnieAAA- a friend of mine got her eyelash extensions in Dallas at tropical day spa. It was $80

lol… maybe he has a picture in his head of ridiculously long eye lashes. . My FI’s reaction would probably be the same.. but only because he would have no clue what they would look like.

My FI won’t even notice my eyelash extensions-i love how they look in pics though so I am getting them done. he also grumbles about the $$ I spend on my hair and nails, when one day I was sick of it and I finally pointed out “do you think your 61 year old mother is a natural brunette with highlights?!” He was like ‘my mother would never color her hair!” LOLOLOL.

I totally get his reaction, because it sounds absolutely ridiculous. But to me, I’ve never had ANY eyelashes and it makes such a HUGe difference in how you look in person and in pictures I figure my wedding day is the one day I can justify doing something like that. So weather I get actual extensions or just a few fake pieces, I’m getting something!

Ok seriously all I can think about is making love to my husband for the first time and one of the false eyelashes falling out of my eye and either landing on his face or getting caught in my eye or something.
I have nice natural eyelashes, I don’t care if the fake ones enhance “the look” I want to look like myself on my wedding day. No offense to anyone who’s getting false ones. Just my opinion
