That's a good idea! ELF is just so cheap I'd be scared of it melting right off with the heat and stuff, but if you used it with no problems, that's probably what I'll do!  Did you use the actual Elf lashes or just the glue?

Our problem is with our totally inept travel agent, who complicates every detail and confuses things, Pilar actually asked me if we could eliminate including my agent in the planning of the actual wedding bc of how effed up everything is getting!
    My stupid ipad installed the bdw app and its all messed up on the web now so my display doesn't look normal- when is your wedding date?

    Could you send me the contact info and spreadsheet for avi solutions? I'll PM you with my email address.

     

    Thanks

      Wow! thanks for this info!! I will def be checking out orientaltrading and avon books! I know that i want to do welcome bags but i have yet to have started any research... When did you start purchasing items? My big day isnt till next May.

      I used the actual lashes too. They worked really well - and it was the first time I've ever worn fake lashes. We stuck them on first, then we put on the rest of my make up. Our last step was to curl & put mascara on them with my own lashes to "bind" them together. They really made a HUGE difference. They stayed in place right up until I forgot and rubbed my eye after the reception. Then one came loose, and I didn't have the glue on me to stick it back on. So I just pulled both of them off and proceeded to the bar for the after party! You can't beat the price of those things though.

        I recently starting buying stuff for the bags.  I really only buy when I am able to get a great deal on something (free shipping code) or stuff like that.

          Yes, they do have glue. I took my fake ones and Lizete glued them for me.
