Honestly don’t touch your extensions, darken your hair if the colour really is that off.

I  want to say I would never lighten hair extensions,  but yes,  I have done that before.  But those were true virgin black hair extensions. I would never lighten colored hair extensions. Colored extensions have been through so many processing,  attempting to lighten things might end in disaster.  Sure it would work,  but there’s no way to predict how they will lighten it take color and they are likely to become a rats nest as a result.

Are you certain they sent you the right color and that the color you have matches the one in the search.  They could have been mislabeled or you could have gotten the wrong set.  Compani3s make mistakes like that a lot. 

Maybe contact the company and explain the situation? Otherwise you will probably choose between buying a new set or coloring your hair to match. Another option might be buying just a few you current color and putting in low-lights that match the extensions.  That might give a nice dimensional look. 

Honestly,  if it’s just for one day,  I might be tempted to buy the synthetic ones from Amazon. Under 20 bucks and should be okay for a day.  They’d be tangly for any more than 1 wear though.  A lot if the reviews refer to people wearing them for their wedding day,  so it’s apparently pretty common. Also,  dry shampoo cuts down on the unnatural sheen on synthetic blonde extensions. 

Or you could forgo the extensions entirely and rock you shorter hair for the wedding.  There are some cute hairstyles for short hair.  I watch Milabu on YouTube and she’s done a lot of short hairstyle videos.
