What treatments/procedures have you done to be "Wedding Day Beautiful"?

Recommended Posts

The most I have spent is on exercise classes (cardio barre). about $150.00 for a 10 class series that has to be renwed almost monthly. I love most of my results but I still

want a better rock hard body. Oh well! I will be waxing and all that stuff and I want gel nails for the wedding because I don't want to hassle with nail polish coming off etc.. I am still considering teeth whitening but have not actually bought it yet. I'm doing OTC because I's afraid of the sensitivity issue. I tried to save $$$ by taking out my highlights and just going one color.

Thank you MarieSam wink.gif

 

I am thinking about getting eyelash extensions done. I really want hair extensions, but I think it will be too expensive. My mom and sis are getting eyelash extensions done for around $350. How much are/did you pay for eyelash extensions??

 

I usually have a tanning package right now, but lately I have just been laying out to save $$$ :)

I agree - you ARE stunning!!

I choose 301-500 because I added up tanning, hair cuts, waxing, a facial, mani/pedis, teeth whitening, clothes, shoes, lotions, ect is a freakn ton of $$

Oh well its worth it...I mean its our wedding :)

I chose $301-500, but its over a year away so I might be off. I'll be getting my hair Japanese straightened, colored, & cut ( I go every 6 months and always make sure its June and December because my birthday is in June), and I'll be using Crest White Strips. I'm going for a site visit two months before so I'm hoping I'll already be tan. That's about it.

oh yea I forgot about eyelashes and makeup for the big day..... theres some more money!

 

I'm just getting the eyelashes you can put on and take right off from MAC... I think they are $11. I don't suggest actual eyelash extensions. You have to be very careful w/ getting them wet and drying them! VERY VERY careful or they come off and it looks bad. And we're having DW god knows I'll be in the water! I don't want to think about drying off on the beach and worrying about my lashes, plus I've seen so many people with them and don't feel they are worth the money. i can get the same effect from MAC for WAY cheaper. MAC has SEVERAL different lengths, etc.

 

Oh and ladies I know some of you are concerned about sensitivity w/ teeth whitening. I will tell you that I have very sensitive teeth. i suggest a good cleaning before using them. That way your gums are all taken care of and will really help w/ hurting your gums. Also use fluoride!!!! My dentist gives me a fluoride gel to put in my trays so if they do get sensitive I do a tray of fluoride that day instead of whitening. I haven't even had to use the fluoride gel just cause I use fluoride everyday. I figured in the end I had ALOT of whitening to do and I'd probably spend around $300 on strips just cause they haven't really done much for me. So I just got the trays I see an improvement each time I use them!

Hmmm...I have a lot of things in mind - we shall see if I have the cash flow to go with it.

 

- I have a gym membership anyway but I opted to share a personal trainer with my sister @ $12/month = $108 for the 9 months prior to wedding.

- Hair cut + Highlights = around $120

- Mani/Pedi = $60

- Hair/Makeup day of = around $100 or so

- Eyelash extensions = $150

 

So about $500-$600 YIKES!!!

OMG MarieSam, you just made me realize how much I'm spending!! AAGGHH. I chose the $500 - $1000. Most of that cost is because of the one year gym membership that I got to lose weight for the wedding. The rest will be for waxing, hair cut and highlights, mani & pedi and whatever else I forgot!

I too have heard how costly hair extensions can be!! As for eyelashes, I'm just using the plain ol "apply day of" ones. Mainly because I intend on swimming/snorkeling everyday and would be pissed if my investment ended up floating in the water, lol. I usually buy the ones from the drugstore, but I think I'll splurge and go Mac for the wedding rolleyes.gif

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
