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

    • I purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks
    • Karla Casillas is dishonest and a liar . DO NOT USE her . She will be the missing wedding planner on your wedding day . After being paid in full she did not show up and texted  that she is sick . We had to take over  to save the wedding of 150 guests at Grand Velas . Cabo  MISSING WEDDING PLANNER.

    • You might consider underground studio Puerto Vallarta. They are a young coupe doing an excellent Job at affordable rates.
    • Thanks for answering Patty! We are having the legal proceedings done in December so february is the celebration. We will have pictures first then a ceremony with a religious discourse and then have the reception.  I'm guessing we will be 50 people, give or take. Half of them are Canadian. They will need accommodations but if we have the wedding ag a resort I dont want them to be forced into staying there if they dont want to.
