    Looks great! I'm wondering what to do with mine because of the humidity in Cancun. I may go this route...

      From what I hear the stylists at the resorts are very skilled with black hair my friend got married in Jamacia and swam for 3 days before her wedding and the stylist was able to wash press and create a very cute updo for her. Another bride getting married at the same resort as me in Mexico said the stylist put in the hair peice she brought with her....still scared though...

We used Milky Way Saga premium 100% human hair (color 1B), 14”. This hair is really good quality; it doesn’t tangle or shed much and it washes well. I’ve washed it a couple of times already and I have had the hair in for close to three weeks now.

        I had the hair style/makeup trial done in Miami, where we will be getting married. I think it turned out pretty good. But, I think I will go a little shorter on the hair weave (10” or 12”) and will have my hair stylist in Atlanta leave a little more of my own hair out in the front for more volume. This was my first time having a sew-in.

Yes all the drama of our hair does indeed make me want to slap somebody. My stylist is going to to some clip in pieces for me for free and is invited to the wedding, but she does not have her passport in hand and I walk down the aisle in 18 days!! Soooooo aggravating!
          Congrats VDay!!! Dont forget about us...send a full HAIR report!!!

              Hello, have no fear help is near...I'm currently natural I would suggest checking out Nappturality.com Everybody over there is natural and they even have a section that discusses doing natural hair with children. Everybody is real friendly and helpful. Good Luck!

                  Let me just say how happy I am that I found this thread. I know that I have a LONG way to go until my date, but this is something I've thought about since we decided on a wedding in the DR. I would love to do the Nia Long style for the reception and the Tyra Banks style shown earlier for the ceremony. I can't afford to pay for my stylist to fly down and stay and I too am 100% natural with shoulder length hair. Has anyone gotten married at either Dreams Palm Beach or NH Real Arena hotel in Punta Cana? If so, did their stylist do your hair?

                    However, I am 100% natural and I don't want to relax my hair for the wedding. It took me 3 years to get my hair pass my shoulders!

                    Do you think I can pull off that style without relaxing my hair?
                    Hmm... I'm not sure about that. You would need to find someone that really knows how to do a good press with the straightening comb or a good flat iron. It really depends on the texture of your hair and how it reacts to humidity. I know my hair would frizz right up if it weren't relaxed.

                    Or you could try getting a full sew-in. Not sure how that would work for you since your natural hair is so long.

                      shortnsweet- what brand of hair did you use? I'm thinking remy saga (i believe that's milky way- don't know a ton about hair extensions though) but there's another brand that I've heard okay things about. Was wondering what you went with?

                      Can not decide if I will have my (natural, thick, and curly too boot) hair corn rowed in something intricate and wear a lace front on the 'important' days, or if I will do a sew in, or what. I'm leaning more towards sew in- but I want to swim!
