Hi girls :wv Just wondering are any of you wearing extensions on your wedding day. I have been blessed with extremely thin, dull hair :yelrotflmaosmilie: I don't want to do an upstyle with my hair, Id prefer to leave it down and maybe put some curls in it but I think Id need some extensions for volume. Anyone thinking of doing the same as myself??

Hi, Yep I'm having hair extensions on the day! My hair stylist has told me the ones to get - I'm having my hair down with curls and like you could do with a bit of volume! They look great!! :wv

Like you - I have fine hair. My hair dresser is going to put in some clip in extensions to add body - I'm still going for an upstyle but need to give her something to work with :o0

I'm thinking about this. Hoping my hair will be below my shoulders for the day so i'd like to add extensions to thicken my hair but not any longer than my own hair so i don't look totally different! I've planned a hair trial 6 months before the wedding to get the stylists opinion. My dress is strapless so i'd like a half up/half down style but if i don't go for extensions i'll have to have it all up or it will be all stringy and flat :o(

I think the clip in ones are secure enough - although I'd guess maybe a hair dresser could hide them better in an upstyle that wasn't moving around. if you check youtube there are some videos of people demo ing the clip in hair extensions. Or check out the American Dreams website think there are vids on there http://www.americandreamextensions.com/

I was worried about them falling out too!! But my hair stylist says they're really secure and won't fall out!! HTH!!

I'm so tempted to get actual proper hair extensions for my wedding :innocent: I think this is maybe not such a good idea tho?
