    I voted yes but I would just get clip ins so you can take them out and not ruin them.

    Are clip in extensions an option for you? I had them for my wedding and I loved them!

    I have clip ins that I wear for special occasions that I will probably wear for my wedding! They not only make my hair a little longer, but thicker and just better looking overall!

    I have had extensions on and off for the last 5 years…. honestly if you get good quality hair and have them put in properly by a PROFESSIONAL  (there are many different ways to have them put in, depending on your budget and how long you would like them to last) then they should be fine. You will have to take care of them the way that you would take care of your own hair. But like @BlondeMissMolly:  said, if you are really unsure- clip ins work wonders!

    I say yes! I would do either clip-ins or put the extensions in a few weeks before. If you do the latter then your head can get used to them (they usually hurt me for a day or two) and then you get them styled on your big day.

    Good post! I’m considering them since my hair doesn’t hold a curl and I really love the look of loose curls. Does anyone have pictures of their real extensions and how well they worked?

    @ivoryowl:  My nautural hair before and it is thin but curly, this is after I got them out, so it was an inch shorter when I had them put in.

    Extentsions were done by a student at a hair school-if you happen to live near Portland, OR she charged $100, took 6+ hours and caused a 2-day migraine.  The extensions were top notch Remy hair ($150 per pack, got 2 in 2 diff lengths 18″ and 22″)  My hair is so thin on the sides couldn’t get a thick enough braid to sew them in so in this picture I have matching clips I made w/ the leftover hair (I only needed 1 1/2 packs) I put in once in a while.  It is expensive to do/upkeep at most places the fee is $800, hair is $250+ and due to how thin my hair is only lasted 6 weeks.  I would vote for clips- the pre-made Jessican Simpson ones are really good and affordable.

    @ivoryowl:  If you (or anyone) wants more info, feel free to ask. I have had them in multiple times.  Right now I gave up and have a pixie cut.  I also have pictures of the sew-in process start to finish.  I would not do them again, first my hair is too thin and I could use more volume, it didn’t last long (looked like crap after 4 weeks) and secondly I would not spend a grand again, and then another few hundred a month for my hair.

    I’ll be getting clip ins for the wedding. My hair is really fine and is like some more volume since I have a half up half down style. I’m not a big fan of glue or sew in extensions (google image it…you’ll see why), but that’s just a personal preference.

    @aliciapdx:  thank you for all the information and pictures. hmm I’ll have to think about think about this more. In general, I like my hair- I just want it to be curly haha. I think I’ll have to test run some hair products over the next few months. The problem is that I keep thinking that some expensive products must be able to hold my hair up, but the only ones that have worked in the past have left my hair completely crunchy, and noticeably so. Not exactly the easy look I’m going for. Hmmm

    I use clip ins all the time and would totally recommend wearing them on your big day!
