I did eyelash extensions for my wedding.  Actually, I started getting them 4 months before my wedding.  If we wern’t saving for a house I’d continue to get them.  They are amazing. I paid around $110 for the first visit and $65.00 for the touchups; I had them done about every 4 weeks. It took two hours for the first application and about an hour for each of the "touchups".

I am going to try to attach a picture (it doesn’t always work for me).

I’ve looked into it at an Aveda Spa in Houston and they said it was $250.  I think my mom and I are going to do it the week before the wedding!

As a makeup artist, I’m not sure I’d recommend lash extensions. I’ve heard stories from brides that made me want to steer clear of them, but have seen others with them who have yielded great results. The most common problem I’ve noticed is when the lash extension comes off, it causes your real lashes to be brittle and thus they may break and fall out as well before new lashes are ready to grow and replace them.

If you know a lash extension artist and have heard and seen great reviews from him/her, and have the time and money to maintain them in the long run, I don’t see why you shouldn’t give it a try if you really want to (: However please keep in mind false eyelashes for your wedding day (whether the individual ones or strip ones) will give you both length & volume for your lashes, and won’t require the kind of maintence that lash extensions do. Hope this made sense & helps you out!

Although lash extensions do help provide lenght and volume they are a bit difficult to maintain especially when some of them fall out faster than others.   In my opinion, whether it’s worth it depends on your needs.  If you are ready and able to continue retouching the lashes once they have fallen out then definitely get them! Who doens’t love the feeling of waking up with a beautiful set of lashes?  However, if you’re an on-the-go busy working girl then I would suggest getting false lashes on your wedding day.  Depending on the type that your artist uses you can achieve similar if not identical looks. What’s even more important is that its very low maintainence and you won’t have to worry about paying extra to touch up.  Plus it’s a lot more cost effective for brides on a budget.

I plan on getting them for my big day because they last about 2 weeks, which means I’ll have gorgeous lashes for the honeymoon too!  They’re about $250 for the first app and touch ups can range from $75 to $150.  Knowing that I won’t have undereye shadows from mascara?  Priceless…

That’s a good point! Even though I use waterproof mascara it still smudges on me!

Aw girl. If you’re worried about lashes coming off with tears.. I suggest you use waterproof lash glue. They hold up pretty well! The best way to determine if you think they’ll hold on your big day is to buy some false lashes now and some waterproof glue and try using it for a few days yourself. That way when you cry now you can see if it’ll hold up well (:

 Also, for lashes, I love Ardells and Andrea’s lashes (2 different brands). They can provide fullness and length at the same time. I usually layer two pairs of lashes for my brides on the wedding day to help their eyes stand out more. Try a few styles and see for yourself which one you like best (: The glue & lashes can be found at your local Ulta or drugstore like CVS. Good luck!

I got them for my engagement pics and my wedding.  I love them but they are expensive so I’m not going to get anymore fillins.  They look so much more natural than any fake eyelashes I’ve ever seen. I don’t think they’ve done my natural lashes any harm and if they weren’t so pricey, I would keep on with them.

 They do take some getting used to.  I recommend getting them at least a couple of months before the wedding so you can make adjustments to them if you want to.  I thought the first lashes I got were too much so when I went back in, she filled them in with shorter lashes.  I got a lot of compliments on how great my eyes looked and it was so nice not to have to worry about my mascara smudging or running on the big day.  Make sure to get the sealant – it really does keep them on a lot longer.

 It’s been so nice to wake up in the morning, put a little powder and lipstick on and look be done with it.  I’m going to miss them.
