Thank you so much for the kind words! The TTD was so much fun. I wash my weaves all the time, so getting it wet was no problem for me. The sand came out very easily. Hoping all the best for your big day :)

They are one of my favorite design houses, so I had to get one! The original one I wanted was called Enebro, but they discontinued it. I was heartbroken, but I this was 2nd on my list anyway, so it all worked out. I named my dress Lupe, lol. All the best to you in your wedding planning. Feel free to contact me if you need any advice, help, etc.

AfricanVenus,

I'm not sure if you still frequent the board or not but I just looked at your pictures and I must say, you guys look like you had a ball! So much happiness and love in those pics! Did you take your photographer with you or was it the resort's photographer?

 

Your dress was the very first dress I picked out when I got engaged; then I talked myself out of it. But you looked stunning in it.

2012mrstobe,

I still have my email notifications set so I can respond to this thread. The photographer I used, Aurora Gutierrez, was someone I found while researching. My venue came with a photographer as part of my package, so I had 3 photogs that day (2 photogs and 1 assistant). Aurora divides her time I think between Southern California (Studio Eternity) and Mexico (AuroraGPhotography). I believe her headquarters, if you will, is Mexico. She lived 4 hrs from our venue, so I paid her toll fare since she drove. She was so wonderful and extremely personable. A really lovely person, as well as professional. I didn't take any service providers with me. I think Mexico is full of local talent. If you search hard enough, you can find anyone within your price range. Where are you planning to wed?

AfricanVenus,

I will be getting married in Jamaica. I already have a photographer but I had to come in and comment on your pictures as it seems as if the photographer captured the very essence of your wedding. The pictures are really great and he documented some great memories.

I have locs past the middle of my back, so getting my hair done on the resort will be verrry interesting! My travel agent said that to can send them pictures so they can figure out who can do my hair, but I will most likely taking myself off-resort to a natural hair stylist unless they have an ace in the hole that I don't know about! LOL I have gotten lots of inspiration from Munaluchi bride, and wanted to share: http://munaluchibridal.com/wedding-hair-inspiration-19-wedding-updos-for-black-brides/ These styles are so fierce! These headpieces are even fiercer: http://munaluchibridal.com/wedding-hair-bridal-headpieces-and-accessories/

I broke down and put a texturizer in my hair. My stylist told me not to but I was worried. I should have listened to her because the job she did on my hair was AMAZING!! It lasted all day and the next day it looked gorgeous and wavy when i took it out. I had an off center low bun with beautiful pin curls. LOVED IT!!

I was married on April 25, 2013. I got a sew in for the wedding with the deep wave Brazilian hair. The Spa curled it and pinned it up. For the reception, we took the pins down on one side of my hair so it seemed as though I had two different styles. The hair was perfect with the weather. I did not have to do anything to it.
