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

    • Hello I am planning to get married at Jade Mountain in 2020 any new updates on weddings there or other St Lucia hotels and vendors appreciated 
    • Thanks for your good list.  I also love Marry Me and I'm Yours. 
    • I haven’t seen any recent info on wedding at the Now Amber PV. Has anyone had their wedding there recently? Any feedback etc. My daughter booked her wedding for 5/15/20 so any info would be greatly appreciated. 
    • Good list! I bet it got folks moving!
    • Hey fellow wedding planners. When me and my wife planned our wedding I started making playlists both for the reception and for the dance floor.  I wanted it to be more towards indie and alternative music and since I started sharing the playlists on Facebook and other social media I got so much appreciation I wanted to make them available to others planning their wedding. For the reception Will you marry me? Let's play this at our wedding - INDIE / FOLK / ALTERNATIVE For the dance floor I Bet You Look Good On The Dance Floor - Indie Party Anthems I also have a few other playlists that might be of interest for playing at a wedding It's all about JAZZ Fabulous Fingerpicking Folk (Bob Dylan, Simon & Garfunkle, Bright Eyes, Iron & Wine, Beatles etc) 88 Keys Of Magic - Contemporary Piano - Jazz / Neo Classical and More Fingers, Wood, Nylon and Steel - Contemporary Acoustic Guitar Instrumental Chill Out Gems Hope it can be of help or maybe just inspiration for your own wedding playlist! Let me know what you think!   Flag  Quote  Agree  Like
