I agree with you. Its something he wants to do (he's also a hunter - I'm not) and since its already going to take place with or without his attendance he'd like to witness it.

Yes, he's well aware that the bull gets killed but since its an authentic Mexican tradition he really wants to do it with his mates coming over from Australia. I'm not sure if we (girls) will be joining but thanks for the heads up.
  4. there are plenty, here are a few: zip line (canopy tours) Las Calentas bull fighting whale watching shopping golfing tequila tour
  5. My fiance would like to witness a traditional Mexican bullfight. After reseraching online I found that they take place on Wednesday nights at 5pm prior to going out on the town. Just wanted to know if anyone has done it or witnessed it? I know its not politically correct for all, but he wants to do it for his bachelor party.
  6. I am using Prisar and quite happy with them thus far. I would like to know if anyone has used them or plan on using them and if they could share their pictures. Thank you, Kisa

It itched a lot!!! Also, I do not think my braids were small enough. I have really thick hair. After I had the weave washed for the first time (attached to head) my hair started to smell sour. I was under the dryer for 1 1.2 hours. That darm thick hair.... I am/was considering doing a front lace weave because the hair style I have chosen has the hair pulled away from the face. But!!! not many people here have done them and if they can do they are charging my first born. I am considering getting another weave this Sat with a bang, on the longer side and a bit wavy. Just to give it another shot. I get pretty anal about my hair and for my wedding/honeymoon this is just one item I do not want to worry about. I am leaning towards a weave for 2 reasons: 1) I like my hair a certain way 2) all the sun, heat for the wedding is a lot and I can not promise myself that I do not jump in the pool before the wedding. :-) Dying to know what you ended up going with and if the lace front worked!?

Just do a couple trial runs and you'll be fine! Get some brides books along with some of the handy dandy Sophisticates Black Hair mags and take your time figuring out what you like best. The style is the important part, not the how to get it. Thats always doable. You don't need lil' ole me. Savannah - If you are near where I am getting married I might just take you up on coming to Puerto Vallarta to do my hair - all expense paid. You just tell me the distance. I'm getting married April 25th. Let me know. Kisa

My hair may also be a problem I have had it natural for going on 7 years now and I const have it braids. No one wants me to do barid for my wedding and to tell the truth neither do I. Humidity will kill me if I starighten it and I don't want to relax it I hate weaves they make me miserable---I know I pretty much have nothing left but if anyone has any suggestions I would appreciate it. My hair is soft but thick and it keeps the starightness when ironed but thats in cold weather----I may have to relax it and waste 7 yrs of health (sigh) Girlfriend, I feel your pain. My hair is natural...well, it has a texturizer on it and I have been really stressed about what I'm going to do. I'm not one of those black women that really knows how to do her hair and I'm contemplating flying in my stylist to do it for the week so that I don't have to stress about it, but that is another $900 that I can't afford. The humidity in Puerto Vallarta is brutal. If I relax it it will still be frizzy. Not sure what to do.

I completely agree!! I am getting married in Puerto Vallarta next year and I can't stop stressing about my hair. Not sure if I should do a weave or get a strong relaxer. I'm not one that has "good hair" and it immediately goes frizzy the minute I walk outside. My fiance wants me to wear my hair natural sans weave but he's Australian and doesn't get it. Oh the stress!! Kisa

Do you have an email address for them? Who did you end up going with for your hair and makeup? My hair is frizzy as well and I'm very nervous it will go from a blowout to frizzy in the PV humidity. Any suggestions?
