We ordered our wedding bands from the jeweller last night! Talk about leaving it to last minute ha. I ended up not going for the matching band but getting a Tacori style half eternity pave band w/ milgrain for myself and my FI chose a brushed inlay white gold band. I can't wait to get them! We're getting them the day before our legal church ceremony which is 3 days before we leave
@Wafflesmom - Thank you!! I hope it turns out too . I'm a little nervous because it's someone else executing my "vision" haha and I'm super type A with this type of stuff, but I'm sure it will be fine. I have to keep reminding myself we're getting married in Mexico! Things will be beautiful anyway
@nadiakat17 - I went to a shop in Toronto that specializes in them, but it looks like that rate here is fairly standard for the quality. I'm not sure where you live but prices tend to be higher in Toronto. I paid $150 for the initial set, and then refills are $45-$75 depending on how often you do it and how many you need (2-4 weeks). There are cheaper places but from what I've read, you get what you pay for. I went here because it got great reviews and because my best friend has gotten them done and her eyes looked phenomenal in a really natural way, and I wanted the same
It took the girl about an hour and 15 minutes. She said they'll last for 3-4 weeks depending on your lash cycle and makeup/face wash routine. I'm going to get mine refilled right before I leave so they look decent for the wedding
Yes they last in the pool! That's one of the main reasons I got them. I want to look good the wedding week but not have to worry about wearing makeup that will smudge around my eyes anyway. I'm normally very self conscious leaving the house w/o eyeliner - I'm lazy w/ mascara except on weekends (I think because my lashes are so short anyway) but I never leave w/o eye liner, and I've actually gone out the last 2 days w/o any eye make up and I still feel GOOD about myself if that makes sense. My eyes still look done up and have a nice wide open look compared to my usual no makeup look. I'm going to start wearing eye make up again tomorrow, and I think my eyes will look awesome
They actually feel pretty good. Not at all like the eyelash strips that they glue to your eyelids - I've had those done other times I've had my makeup done and I find them really irritating. Right now I feel like I have a bit more weight on my eyelids but other than that, I don't notice them at all. Haha I keep seeing them in my line of vision though which is very weird for me because I don't usually have that problem!
It was definitely a splurge and I don't think it's something I'd be able to afford to do all of the time, but I decided it was worth it for the wedding. I'll update in a week or so about how they look!
