I never thought that finding the perfect wedding shoes would be so incredibly difficult, but it took me forever..! “Traditional” wedding shoes are just so ugly, that I knew I had to look elsewhere. So I started looking online and in shops here in Norway some time before november. But I didn’t stress it because I knew I was going to Florida for a week in November, so I figured I’d find some shoes there. But boy, was I wrong..! I went to so many malls, department stores, shoe stores and even bridal stores, and found nada! So when I got back home I continued looking online and in stores, but in the stores I could only find winter shoes, or really sparkly “new years eve” type of shoes. And online they either didn’t have my size, didn’t ship to Norway, or the shipping cost as much as the shoe itself..! So I gave up, and figured I’d give it one more chance in Miami when we went there for the wedding. We had 5 days before the wedding day, and a long list of things to take care of, and everywhere we went I stopped to look for shoes. We went to Coral Gables, Sawgrass Mills, Lincoln Road, Miracle Mile, Coconut Grove, and I STILL couldn’t find anything. I was really starting to stress out, cause time was running out. Then, two days before the wedding, we were on our way back to the hotel to call it a night at around 10 pm, when I noticed that some random shoe store on the corner was still open, so I told Endre I was just gonna take a quick look. From the window display it didn’t seem like I would find anything there, but it couldn’t hurt to just take a look. AND THERE THEY WERE! I couldn’t believe it, after all these months of searching and searching, driving around and going to places far away, I found them at the shoe store closest to the hotel we were staying at..! I was so happy and relieved, and the shoes were perfect! I ended up with a pale pink high heel sandal from Badgley Mischka. I think this particular model is called “Xavier”. And what’s even more funny, is that when I came home and had a look at my little inspiration book, there was actually a picture of the exact same shoe in a champagne color..! But I’m happy I found them in pink, cause they are so much cuter!
I decided to get hair extensions before our wedding. I have your typical Scaninavian hair, which is thin, flat and lifeless. And I wanted my hair to look long, curly and beautiful on my wedding day, so I went to Adam & Eva at Arkaden in Oslo and asked for Hair Talk, which I have read about and heard was good. They told me they had stopped using that particular brand because they got a lot of complaints from customers. But they had a different brand that had the same kind of hair and the same kind of tape-system.
It took close to two hours, and was pain free! And the best thing about this kind of hair extensions is that I can keep using it for about a year with takedown and tightening procedures..! I have already tightened them ones, after about two months. Didn’t take more than a couple of hours, and didn’t damage my own hair at all!
The price varies, depending on how much hair you’re gonna need, and how long it’s gonna take, where you do it, what brand it is and so on. But ask your hairdresser, they’ll know
And you can off course style it just like you would with your natural hair.
