    I would, but I bite my nails pretty badly (TRYING to stop!) so I’ll probably be getting gels. I also had to have black nitrate put in my nail beds so my toe nails don’t grow and they’re really short. Since we’re having a beach wedding and I’m wearing barefoot sandals, my feet are going to be seen alot, so I’ll probably get gel toe nails as well. Weird, but necessary. 

    We’re doing everyone else’s nails the night before though while watching Boy Meets World seasons on DVD. It’s already been decided, haha.

    I love getting my nails done. It just gives you time to realx a bit and get pampered.

    i have my license in cosmetology, so i did my own. i hate to pay someone else to do things i can do myself. if i had gotten acrylics or something, i would have had someone else do it, but for just a regular mani/pedi i do my own.

    I’ll be getting it done professionally because I want a french manicure (not my favorite – that would be bright turquoise, lol – but it’s classic and my fiance LOVES them – they’re the only time he compliments my nails) and I can’t do them at all on my own. I have tried many times but the results are too embarrassing to leave on my fingers. Plus I’ll be getting a gel one so it’ll last through the honeymoon. I’ll be getting a gel pedicure too but idk what style yet… maybe also french.

    I’m not very good at doing my nails, so I would personally get mine done. If you’re spending money on a photographer, there will probably be some hand/ring pictures, and I think it would be worth the extra $$ to get your nails done since the pictures are forever!

    I am getting a mani/pedi the day before. I will do gel for my fingers and regular pedi. But I’m still undecided if I’ll do a pale pink or French.

    My friends and sisters are also coming to get theirs done, but they are paying for their own.

    I will be getting a mani/pedi. No gels or anything. I always manage to start breaking them off after only a few days and I don’t want to be dealing with that on the honeymoon. Funny story, I was looking at the budget spread sheet that my dad put together for the wedding and he had budgeted $25 for a mani AND pedi. I don’t know where he thinks I’m going to get my nails done that it will only be $25. Maybe $25 each, but I think most places are at least $30 and I’ll want a french which is usually more.

    mani-pedis are serious deals to me and my girls. there is no way I could skip that. $20 mani-pedis and a spa pedi for me.

    Definitely a mani-pedi, and I’ll probably go with my girls to get them done at the same time. Ours is a Destination Wedding in Bali so it’s likely we’ll all be chilling out a couple of days before the wedding.

    The night before the wedding my girls and I are going to do an at-home spa night. We’re doing manis/pedis, but not paying for them. It’ll be nice to relax, but it’s going to save us some money for sure!
