If any of you are planning on doing your own clip-ins here are few tips I found to be helpful :

 

Before cutting the weft of hair, measure where you will be applying the extensions and then cut.

 

Buy thick thread (doesnt neccessarily have to be made for extensions, any thick thread will do) it holds better and can withstand hairspray.

 

Make sure your clips are facing downwards and closed before attaching them.

 

Insert the thread in the clip first, then sew it into the weft (it's a lot easier this way) 

 

Sew in the two holes that are on each side of the clip as well as between the teeth of the clip with tension and make a knot at the ends for security.

 

The clips should not be sewn in at the very ends of the weft, leave a little (very little) of the weft hanging over the ends so the clips do not show.  

 

If you plan on wearing your hair curly/ wavy buy hair that is already a bit waved, the curls will last longer.

 

Have fun and do this with plenty of time so you can test them out before your big day :)

I'm gonna do my usual weave and try to find a stylist that'll give me the curls I want. I'm not staying in Mexico long enough to really swim, etc. However, I've always been able to swim in weaves, if they're sew-in. Just wash normally and style as usual. The day after is my TTD, so my hair will get wet, but I'll just wash it before I leave the country and let it air dry. Salt water's no joke!

You can say that again re salt water being no joke lol. I'm going to get a weave too. The day after our wedding, will also be our TTD but being that we're also staying in Jamaica for our honeymoon, I'm not going to get my hair wet. Will just be cute from the neck downwards lol. And dry above.

Im doing the same thing.  Going for my usual weave and wash/style as usual.  We are doing the TTD, but FI does not like the water, so I may have to do pics solo.

That's funny. My fiance is not too crazy about water either. He had a near drowning as a child, so he doesn't play around in it too much. Hopefully I can help him out though. He played around a little bit when we went to Ocho Rios.
