There is no doubt that every bride-to-be wants to look completely gorgeous for her wedding day!  Why else would we schedule the hair and makeup appointment, ensure that we are perfectly manicured and that all undesirable ‘curves' are hidden under that breathtaking gown?  If you're considering getting hair extensions for your wedding, here are some things you should think about first.

Will This Be Your First Time?
If you've never had hair extensions before, but you want to try them for your wedding, give them a test run first.  You may not like the way the hair extensions feel or look, so it's important to try them out well in advance. Experiment with the clip-on kind at home and determine whether or not you really like the look.  Remember that your wedding photos will last far longer than your hair extensions and you want to make sure the photos will be beautiful mementos of your wedding rather than proof of a hairstyle-gone-bad.

Clip On or Glue On Hair Extensions -
Another choice you have when wondering, ‘Should I get hair extensions,' is clip on or glue on extensions.  The glue on kind can last for several months while the clip on kind can come out as soon as the ceremony and reception are over.  If you're considering a fancy and elaborate updo, you may want to go with the glue on kind.  This will ensure that nothing comes out of place at the most inopportune time - like when you're going down the aisle or dancing the first dance.

If you choose to use the clip on extensions, take them to your hair stylist ahead of time and have him or her try out some different looks with them.  This will give you the chance to see how you like them and you can move around some to ensure that the hair extensions are secure and in place.

Looking Natural -
If you want your hair extensions to look natural to your guests, consider wearing them for a while before the wedding.  Everyone, including you, will become used to the way you look with the hair extensions and it won't be a drastic change for the wedding.  This approach helps you look more natural and confident with your new hair extensions and will also give you the chance to see if you really love them or if you can do without them!

Hair extensions can enhance your look and provide you with the long, beautiful tresses you desire - just make sure you try them out first and ensure that they are really what you want!
