    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

      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!

                    jkcz0702 - what's vibraderm? sounds interesting, sounds like a SUPERfacial.

                      Damn it ladies, I totally forgot to add my constant shoe shopping and lashes, just the drugstore kind though. Aye, I can't believe I've spent this much!!!
                      Wow what a great thread! I picked the $1000+ range ...shhh don't tell FI Haha

                      $2500 on Dr. Bernstein Diet for 6 months lost 80 pounds
                      80 pounds? You're my hero
