Eyelash Extensions!

I recently went to my fabulous make-up artist to get eyelash extensions. I always wanted them but wasn't sure exactly what they were and if I would like them, well needless to say I'm in love! These are individual lashes glued to your individual lashes. Unlike normal false lashes, with these lashes they can last up to 3 months and you can even go swiming with them. I think these are an awesome idea if you are interested in having long lashes for your wedding day. They will last well past your honeymoon too! Here is a few pictures of the before and after..............


If you are interested in getting eyelash extensions yourself contact Michelle at Check out Michelle's website for more before and after pictures as well as her awesome make-up talents!

Choosing your veil

So you got the dress (yay!) and now you need to accessorize! Here is a list of the different lengths of veils so you can be more knowledgeable when choosing the one that's right for you........ but don't forget to take in account the style of your dress!
Blusher- this is the veil that covers the face when you walk down the aisle. It starts at 20" in length and is never worn by itself. The blusher can be worn during the entire ceremony and is pulled back for the first kiss as husband and wife or it can be pulled back over the bride's face before she is given away by father at the beginning of the ceremony
Flyaway or Shoulder- This is the shortest veil, most often 20" long. It is usually not done by itself (single layer)but rather in addition to another veil of a different length to add volume.
Elbow- Comes below the shoulder normally hits right at the elbow. Usually at about 28" long. It is generally used for gowns without a train and gowns that have a full skirt
Fingertip- Comes to the fingertips, Usually 36" long. This veil can be worn with any full length gown but is not recommended for gowns with a train
Ballet- This veil is normally about 56" long and comes somewhere between your knees and your calves. Some Bridal salons will call this veil "waltz" or "knee"
Chapel- Comes anywhere from your ankles to brushing the floor about 108" long. Most often combined with another veil of a different length.
Cathedral- This veil is most often used when in a church that has a long aisle as it makes a statement when you walk. This veil is worn normally for formal weddings as it will extend onto the floor at least six inches past the train of your dress. It starts at 120" long.

Sex and The City

The Vivienne Westwood gown that Sara Jessica Parker wore for the wedding on Sex and the City movie was put up for purchase on and was sold out within hours. I guess the price tag of $9,875 didn't stop the Carrie Bradshaw wannabe was definitely an awesome dress!
