Mini Update 2.17.15

 

 

Lash Extensions:

 

I got my eyelash extensions today!  I thought she was going to take a before/after, but apparently not.  So here's the "after".  I got the natural looking fill - she told me my lashes were already really long, so she worked more on volume.  I think they look very natural, but I definitely want the vavavooom look for my wedding, so will get the fuller set when I get my fill in 3 weeks!  I won't keep it up, I don't think, since honestly I get similar results with mascara (especially the Younique fiber lashes). But I also have long lashes already so it's probably not normal!

 

Here's the after:

 

Lash Extensions

 

 

Here's the type that she put on:

I think it'll be nice because I don't have to wear mascara (long light lashes meant I always felt like I needed to wear some mascara), and it's very natural looking.

Programs, Menus & Guest Wedding Day Timelines

I put in my order with Vistaprint today, too, woohoo!  I chose economy shipping, so it should be here in around 10 days (2/27).  I'm hoping nothing else changes in that time - if so, I'll probably use a sharpie ;)  haha

 

 

I already found 1 small issue on the program, but I don't really mind.  I (for some reason) put that my middle bridesmaid is "friend of the groom" - which she IS, but she's one of my BFFs so...oops.  No one will notice LOL.  I think it's because before, I had his sister in that spot, and didn't really check when I was updating.  Not going to stress about it!

 

 

Programs - had them printed on Vertical Oversized Postcards.  Was going to do fans, but didn't want to have to order 2x the postcards and glue them together.  So will probably just keep it simple!  These will go ont he chairs at the reception - maybe a chair "packet" because of the wind, to combine with the sunglasses & shotglass for the toast?

 

Program Front:

Program Back:

Menu - These will go on the reception table, ideally with the maracas if we get them.  I printed these on rack cards.

Menu Back - I spy reception game, to encourage guest photos!:

Guest Timeline: I plan on putting these in the OOT bags; the front is the actual day timeline, and the back is the Wedpics photo sharing app info.  I want to make sure that I get guest photos, so am planning on making sure they at least have the information!  I printed these on small postcards.

Awesome job!! Just let your BFF know about it and then it's all good. Other than them no one will know any different :)

My friend sells yonique so interesting to hear you compare them. Maybe I'll try that out :)

Yay soooooo soon now

Biggest difference is volume I think. I put a little mascara on the tips today, and they are already even longer. Younique is something I can tell when people are wearing, whereas the extensions are much more natural looking. So depending on what look you are going for, either will work. My appointment was only about an hour, even with paperwork. Younique definitely cheaper, but I get the fibers in my eye lol. Plus I work from home, so it's more for special occasions. Not sure how long a tube would last with daily use

I don't mind my eyelashes now because I'm a nurse and well I swear scrubs - you get it. But once in awhile on a date night I wouldn't mind a change :) But a fee layers of regular mascara and mine appear fuller. Hahah I just like to try new things :) see what the hype is all about.

I wore fake eyelashes on my wedding day! You could totally tell and I loved it. But thankfully they pulled off easy. I lost my eyelashes once and too scared for a due over of that lol

wow I have been a little behind in reading your thread. I am all caught up now though and what a great job you have done with everything. You did amazingly well with planning your wedding and keeping everything organized.

I cannot wait to see your pictures. It won't be long now you are getting so close.

 

Your eyelash extensions turned out great. I decided to book an appointment to get them done too. I am nervous but excited to see how they turn out.

Update 2.21.2015

I had my final dress fitting yesterday, LOVE! The seamstress has made several quips about the fact that my dress is extremely heavy, and she said I need to start lifting weights if I don't already or I won't be able to hold it up ha ha. She's an 80+ year old woman who hasn't really left this part of Oklahoma, and is fascinated that I'm having a destination wedding. Of course she mentioned she feels all weddings should be in the church you went to your whole life...lol. gotta love the bible belt!

I'm on my phone, so will post picture when I get to my computer today. I have a comparison from when I bought it and now. I like to think I toned up lol! It's not even laced!!

Left: bought March 2014
Right: Final fitting February 2015
