Over the last 5-10 years the craze of false lashes has reached new heights. Long gone are the days you’d just wear mascara on your wedding day. With so many options available, it can get confusing as to which lashes you should choose. If you are a barely there person when it comes to makeup, then don’t feel the pressure to get lash extensions just because your BFF did.
Here are some lash options to consider for your big day:
These are my absolute favourite lashes. Applied in individual clumps, they are super light on the eyes, and can be built up to give the desired fullness. They give a natural and beautiful look and are so elegant for brides. There are different lengths and fullness to suit everybody. Individual lashes are my most used lashes. The lashes I have used in my feature image are double flare knot free individuals.
From natural to full glam, the styles are endless and can really create that extra wow factor without looking over the top. Full strip lashes can sometimes feel a little heavy on the eyes to start with and generally take about 20minutes to get used to the feeling. On the rare occasion, full strip lashes can lift in the inner and outer corners. If the lashes are a fuller heavier style then the artist should cut these into sections to avoid any lifting. You can also double stack these lashes to create extra wow factor. Strip lashes can be reused up to 5 times if they are removed with care.
If you’re not into false lashes then a lash lift is a beautiful way of making your natural lashes appear longer, without applying anything false on top. Done by an experienced lash technician these can look amazing. A lash lift won’t necessarily give you fullness but will definitely make your lashes appear longer. Make sure you always test this method 6 months before your wedding day and see an experienced technician like Zoe at Tan by Zoe. I’ve had a few clients who’ve seen inexperienced technicians and had their lashes so tightly curled it’s been impossible to apply mascara and absolutely no way of applying anything false over the top. Lash lifts can last up to 12 weeks.
A costly exercise and an added expense to your wedding day as they require upkeep. Lash extensions last for approximately three weeks before needing a refill (a bit like acrylic nails). This type of lash look is definitely full. If truth be told, I’m not a fan, but each to their own. Out of the hundreds of lash extensions I’ve seen on clients, there would be less than a handful I actually like. I can generally see lash extensions coming towards me before I even see the person. They can appear very top heavy on the eyes. If you love waking up feeling like your eyes are front and centre, then these babies are for you!
Note: My wedding and special event prices include complimentary supply & application of individual or full strip lashes. Beware some artists can charge up to $30 extra for these on top of the makeup application.

When you live in a beautiful city like Melbourne your option for locations are endless.
Some brides chose their own home, some the traditional location of their parents house and others a lovely Airbnb or Hotel Suite.
There’s lots of pros and cons to consider when choosing your perfect location, so I’ve compiled a list, some food for thought if you’re really unsure of the best location.
Any don’t forget wherever you decide to get ready just consider how far away it is from your ceremony? If its 45mins or more, that’s just extra time in your “getting ready schedule” and potentially sitting in crazy Melbourne traffic.
No one wants to see the Groom sweating…
