Metal vs Ceramic?

Im getting braces next month :) and im trying to decide on metal or ceramic. I like the look of the clear, and I dont mind paying the extra cost. But i've been told that they stain very easily and make teeth look yellow?

How bad is the pain when you first get braces?

I'll be getting braces in a month, and I have to work the day after (as a shop assistant, so I have to talk to customers) and then the day after that I have a friends birthday dinner party. Will I be okay if I take some pain killers?

I've always been self conscious of my smile and I'm finally on my way to doing something about it! :D I first went to see an orthodontist at 12 years old, he told my mum that I would need lower jaw surgery to fix my overbite and she said no way! ...
