Well my hair is pretty long, so I don’t need extensions.  I will be getting fake eyelashes put on though!  I like the full look, and as long as they aren’t really fake looking (like the Halloween ones lol) then I see nothing wrong with it.

I know plenty of girls that do the fake eyelashes, and a friend of mine did extensions to to make her hair not look longer but because her hair is so fine and she wanted it to look fuller.  If it’s within your budget, I say go for it!  My only advise, as someone that did theater most of her life, is spring for the really good eyelashes because nothing’s tackier & more annoying than having one fall off,especially since you may be crying and dabbing at your eyes throughout the day!!

I’m not planning on going with either as I’m lucky enough to have long fully hair and lashes that are pretty good with just a quick coating of clear mascara. But I just wanted to agree with twalila. If you’re going to go with them I’d pay the extra to get the really good quality fake lashes. 

I think a few of the blogging Bees here have gone with fake lashes as well for their wedding day. So it’s not too uncommon.

My make-up artist is putting the individual fake lashes on me, flares, I think she called them. I loved the way they look. I’m not going with extensions just because I love my bobbed curly hair.

I think you should go with what you want, and as much as possible, invest in those things that will make you feel great about your look.

I think since there will be so many pictures of that day, I will maybe try the eylashes and the airbrush make up.  I already am growing my hair out so I won’t need extensions.

My hair is very fine and does not grow long well. When it gets past my shoulders it looks weighted down and stringy so I am not planning on growing my hair long for my wedding. My hairstylist has suggessted that I buy a hair piece to help add volume to the low bun I want. This is a good cost effective way of giving me the look I want on my wedding. Hair extensions can be expensive and I don’t think I need them.

I have long hair, so I’m not going to do extensions, but I am doing fake eyelashes. I’ve never worn them before so I’m a little nervous! I’m not going to get the outrageous eyelashes, just the ones that enhance ;]

I’m doing both! I will be doing individual fake eye lashes as the look is more ‘natural’ and I have clip in extensions I’m attaching to the base of my head so my hair down looks more full. I’m alll for it!

No. My hair will be long by then (and it’s thick as hell) so I won’t need extensions. As far as lashes go, I hate wearing them, they’re so uncomfortable. And the only thing that I was blessed with physically is naturally dark, thick lashes.

Lots of brides do fake eyelashes. I think it makes your eyes stand out in pictures so I will be getting them (my eyes get tiny when I smile). I can understand using extensions to make your hair fuller or just add a LITTTLE length so you could do more with but Ive seen girls go from extream short hair to extream long hair and she just didn’t look like herself on her wedding day. I think extensions should ad a little something, not make you look completely different. But they can deff help

im actually also doing both very similar to @cmills…i have good lashes but will be using the “flares” or the ones that fill in to make them a tiny bit fuller…also as far as extensions, my hair dresser suggests i use the clip in ones (and you can barely tell!) she says its much better on my hair (as opposed to gluing or sewing them in) and even though my hair is medium lenght, its very fine so that will help give me some boost of volume 🙂 i say go for whatever makes you feel comfortable doing!

I might be doing extensions but it will depend on how much my hair has grown out by then. See back in October I went to get my hair cut and the hair stylist (this was the woman I had normally gone to and was good) decided to give me the worst hair cut ever……she made the back really short and the front short but longer than the back. It looks like I have puppy ears. Also, I have a lot of hair and she texturized it so much that now it feels thin. I was PISSED. SO its been 4 months now and it hasnt grown out that much 🙁 So I will just have to wait and see

I’ve gotten extensions done before! 3 times, to be exact. That stuff ruined my hair! But, as for the fake eyelashes, yes…I am def. doing that.
