Normally fake eyelashes won't last that long (usually just the night or day you wear them but most are reusable)...not too say never but if you're going to be swimming, sleeping, using and removing makeup, etc. they will be falling off by the wedding.
Eyelash extensions however should last that long and longer.

If you want to wear falsies I would recommend your makeup artists puts them on you while they are doing your make up. Or you can learn to apply them yourself...youtube is a great resource!

Im not sure how much they are where you live but they are like $30 at the mall here but they take about 15 mins to put in. They are nice though and they last for 2 weeks. I was thinking about getting some myself.

And some brides just find them annoying after a couple of hours.

- The extensions look phenomenal since they are much more realistic!!! They seem to last longer too. They photograph beautifully...so natural looking!

- Make sure that if you use the full lash, it fits the shape of your eye well in its curve and length. Again, the test run will help with this. Some lashes are too long and brides don't notice until it's too late. A fake eyelash that looks fake does not look suddenly "real" in your photographs. The ends that are too long can start poking out in odd directions.

- Water proof, smudge proof mascara is important, especially in the humidity of the tropics.
- When you do your test run, take a snap shot and see if you like the way you actually look wearing them.
- Sephora has the best selection of eyelashes. They carry all the best ones and you can see all your choices in one spot. Don't hesitate to ask the staff about them and tell them it's for your wedding day.

These hints are to help prevent discovering all of this when your makeup is done and your are in the middle of your wedding and photo shoot. The camera sees everything! It will see if your lash does not end in the correct place or is affixed precisely along your natural lash line. We have had to do some photoshop magic on occasion to correct improperly applied fake lashes.
Have fun, Suzanne & Matt
Thanks for the great tips Suzanne & Matt! I would never have thought to try them on and take a picture as a trial run.

Just to keep things clear...the thread is about eyelash extentions...not false eyelashes. There IS a difference so I hope nobody is getting confused!!

Thanks, Suzanne and Matt for the input from your point of view! Here's my experience and observence of both fake and extensions.

 

I was an MOH for a wedding, and the makeup artist put fake lashes on me. Unfortunately, since I was the last to get my makeup done, there was only one set of lashes left: the longest ones. She didn't trim them or anything, and put them on me. And when I looked at myself, I was like YIKES. those look too long, but the other girls said it looked fine. Saw a photo, and I HATED it. I felt like a clown. SO yes, always do a trial run before going out in public, especially if you are the center of attention. I have zero photos from that wedding experience because of my fake eyelash mishap. I will say that the other girls that had shorter lengths looked great.

 

As for eyelash extensions: the bride had those put in the week before her wedding, and they looked phenomenal -- in person and in the photos. She was kinda afraid they'd fall off the day of the wedding, but she looked good in the photos, and that's all that matters. It was hot as Heck the day of, and I didn't see any hairs fall out from the heat. It was money well spent.

 

Personally because I have not been blessed with my mom's long lashes, I will be getting extensions a couple weeks before. I'm sure most people (my FI included) wouldn't notice a difference, but I know i'll feel prettier because of it.

it seems like several threads have been connected so it's sometime a little tough to tell which type of lashes are being talked about here.

 

i will be using falsies - i definitely don't want to risk having my lashes fall out or worry about upkeep! i'm a huge fan of MAC cosmetics, so my suspicions were confirmed that their lashes would be great. i stopped by the counter last night. the gal who helped me recommended the #33s, hands down. i'm excited to try them!

 

i bought a cheap pair ($3-something at sally's beauty supply) to practice with and help get used to them a bit. but since i'm getting married in mexico and i'm a novice, i'm excited that my future sister-in-law will be there and able to help me make sure they're applied correctly!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
