    I’m not wearing false eyelashes, but they were standard for my show look for my dancing days. Trust me, they would NEVER fall off if put on properly.  If you are new to putting them on, the ends might pop up, but this would happen within the first hour, so you could fix it before you left.  Use lots of glue–the stuff dries clear. 

    I’m having a clip in hair extension for the first time, and everyone tells me they are super secure.  I’m having a hairdresser put it in, so I trust it will be done well.

    My natural hair is very thin and fine so I keep it just above shoulder length to add some body to it. But for my wedding I want long curly locks (my real hair also cannot hold a curl to save my life) so I am going with the extensions just for my big day! That way I can have curls and length withouth having to change my real hair and the way I like it (i.e I dont have to let it get long!!).

    I’m doing lashes for the day and that’s it.  I have done the kind that last for a couple of weeks but I don’t want to bother with them on my honeymoon.  When I had them in I was always trying to avoid getting water near them.  But hello, I’ll be on a beach, how would that be possible?  Lol.

    I considered extensions, but I passed.  Not only is it expensive, I have heard too many stories about what it does to your hair when they come out.  Although I’m sure that was because they weren’t properly put in.  I’d love to have big, full hair, but my Fiance loves me the way I am so I’ll go without.

    To elaborate on the suggestion of making sure you use a lot of glue – if you’re doing them yourself, I’d also like to suggest making sure you get a GOOD glue. Duo Eyelash Adhesive White / Clear .25oz. is the way to go. Don’t use the cheap glue that comes in some eyelash kits.

     

    And if you’re applying them yourself, apply a thin line of eyeliner to your top lid and then you have a guide when applying the lashes plus it makes it look more seamless. As well as make sure you fit them to your eye ahead of time in case you have to cut off the ends. Lashes are not one size fit all.

     

    As for extensions, I love hair extensions but I always go the cheap route. I don’t have $700 to spend on heat bonded ones, so I typically buy the real hair at Sally’s that matches my blond hair and then glue them in. They stay in for around 2 months for me if I take care of them well, but for some people they slip right out… I think clip in’s are the best option for a wedding, that way they do not get ruined on honeymoon if you’re in the water a lot or whatnot…

    Best of luck 🙂

    I personally think ALL brides should do lashes. Most people see you from afar, and it helps your pictures. 

    I’ve had some brides do hair extensions… And they always looked great! I contemplated it but my hair will be long enough and thick enough that I won’t need them. I’m so tempted to chop it though and get extensions for the wedding, lol.

    I am definitely thinking about fake lashes–do you have any idea how expensive they are?

    I was not planning on doing extensions because my hair was pretty long and thick, and I wanted it in a loose bun anyway, just to keep it off my neck so I won’t get hot.  Unfortunately, in the past month I’ve lost about half the thickness of my hair (and still losing), so I don’t even know if I COULD wear my hair in pretty much any style I considered given the condition it’s in now.  I may have to get a weave or something, although I am not looking forward to it. 🙁

    I wore false lashes for my engagement shoot – they were sonia kashuk ones from Target, and I applied them myself having no clue what I was doing. I followed Miss Rainbow’s tutorial, here: http://www.weddingbee.com/2009/11/09/easy-as-peye/

    They felt really funny at first (and they were too big for my eyes – I had to snip the ends off), but they definitely stayed on all day with no problems. I was paranoid that they would come off, and kept asking my Fiance to check, but they were fine.

    I plan to use the same kind again for my wedding.

    I’m definitely wearing false lashes! You need to wear more makeup than you normally would for sure in order for the pictures to turn out right, so I figured that will help because you can only cake on so much mascara.

    The hair extensions I wanted in the beginning, but now I’m not getting them. For me, they were too expensive although I know you said money wasn’t the issue. I was also just worried though because I read so much about how awful it can be for your natural hair. I wouldn’t be worried about them falling out that day. You’ll have your hair done so your stylist should know how to work with them.

    Yes I’m getting “flashes”. That’s my combo of fake eyelashes. Lol. I love lashes, they make your eyes pop. I don’t need hair extensions. I have enough of my own.
