I love a long train!  It looks so pretty and elegant walking down the aisle and once you have it bustled, you don't have to worry about it.

Kind of some inspiration.

Having a heck of a time finding the hair piece, as I don't want a comb for what i am doing with my hair.  I found the one on Etsy and I think I can splurge on the cost.  Going to see if David's Bridal has in our store some of the ones on their website.

Yeah ladies keep the long train! Haha. I was afraid of tripping but I honestly love the look of them :) and I was looking into son very nice bustles today. I'm really short so my main concern is that the train cannot be as long as my height haha.

 

@@calgarybride2015 have you thought of letting your bangs grow a bit? You can then sweep them to the side and incorporate in your updo or even curl them to control the frizz. Mine curl as well when it's really humid so I'm keeping them fairly long. Lots of hairspray is the key. I also heard sometimes they glue them

I'm not having an updo!  I was already against growing my hair whatsoever, but my hair dresser suggested a small soft curl would be nice but at my bob length (chin) it wouldn't look good.   I am letting my bangs grow out though so they can be swept to the side and clipped!!  She suggested maybe braiding them to the side but have to see it before I decide forsure.  Not really sure I want my bangs curled -- so I assume they will be either as they normally are (just swept to the side) or clipped to the side just up above the ear (if that makes sense - not straight up and back).  not sure hairspray could keep them straight.  I have wavy, poofy, thick hair that I flat iron everyday.

 

EDIT: there isn't much on the web for short wedding hairstyles! kind of annoying.

Love the hair pin!  Why are hair accessories so expensive!!  I want something, but don't want to pay $100+ for it, having a hard time finding what I want at a price I think is reasonable.

I know! It's ludacris. 

To be honest, I have considered going to Michael's or the like, and see if I can buy one and glue an alligator clip on the back myself.  I found some on Etsy, but I fear without seeing the back they may not work!  Also trying to find a Canadian dealer so faster and cheaper shipping!

@@calgarybride2015 I personally love braids :) so I'm kind of biased in that regard. I also heard that keratin treatments can help with the frizz in the humidity. They're expensive but the last about 2 months.

That's what my friend did! She made her own hair clip because they were all so darn expensive. I saw some at Claire's online but I guess I'd have to check out the quality in person. The prices were very good though.

I've had two ladies mention this anti frizz product for humidity - so going to find out the name. These hairstylists swear by it.

I am definitely open to her trying the braid - just can't picture it at the moment.

It's tough because I like my shorter bob and think it suits me, but understand it doesn't leave much room for 'wedding hair styles'  I want to still look like myself!    At the end of the day, I am really only worried about my bangs. I know with 100% certainty they will go all freakish on me, and I don't want that!!!  Unless the spa lady is a miracle worker!

Not the best quality if it has 'pearls' in it.  You can tell they are cheaper and the wrong colors - when I was on the headband kick I almost bought one from there then realized it looked super cheap beside my dress & nice pearl necklace.

Some of the rhinestone products are fine, they just don't have what I am looking for!

That's true. When compared to the dress, especially if it has beading on it, you can tell they're cheap. I'll try to find something on etsy, but even then it's hard to find something under $50

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
