    Hi Ladies,

    I can't believe I just found this thread but I'm so glad I did! I'm looking for inspiration and I have a pretty good feeling I'll find some here. MrSmithtobe, I love your 3rd hair revision, with or without a flower.

     

    I'm leaning towards a sideways updo. I've gone back and forth a few times about it so here is what I'm thinking today, lol. I'd most likely get tracks. Let me know your thoughts.

            I LOVE the Zoe look. I've been debating wearing my hair completely straight, part down the middle.., I'm 30 days away and STILL have no idea *sigh*

              Hey ladies...

               

              It's been a while since I've posted on here since my June wedding in Jamaica. But I wanted to see if I could help anyone out if I can when it comes to hair. In my case, I realized that doing things simple worked the best for me. I wanted a side-bun updo but wasn't sure how it would look. My hair is coarse but usually stays straight after a perm. But I had stopped getting perms for maybe a year before the wedding and had been just flat ironing it straight.

               

              Anyways, one week before the wedding, I decided to balk and get a perm. But I wanted only a kiddie perm that my Aunt did for me. It did the job in terms of straightnening out the roots. I was worried about humidity since it was already June and the start of hurricane season. But, lemme tell ya, the humidity in Jamaica wasn't terrible. Even after a rain storm and with a good flat iron and hair mosturizer, it was fine.

               

              I my hair goes past my shoulders but I wanted my bun to have more volume. So I bought 14" Yaki with hopes it would help (I don't wear weaves or extensions so I wasn't sure how this would work.) My cousin did my hair using the Yaki, a lot of pins and gel...

              The process took a loooong time (about an hour) but it was worth the effort. Here's a pic of me outside during the ceremony. Still waiting on pro pics but here's to give you an idea on how it looked...

              The look even stayed into the next day for our post-wedding shoot. But I will say it was a bit uncomfortable sleeping because of the pins (pain is beauty I guess).

               

              My point is, don't stress out about your wedding day hair. Just make sure you know what style you want and have your normal hair accessories with you. Yes, my husband didn't want me to wear extensions because he wanted me to look "like myself" that day. To be honest... he didn't even realize I had extra hair in until I told him. So, to those who want to wear extra hair... I say go for it. The guys won't be worried about that once they see you walking down the aisle.

               

              This forum really helped me so I hope this helps other "Chocolate Brides" too!

                  Pandabride you looked stunning!!!

                   

                  I'm not a pony tail/bun person so i'm not sure how that would look on me. I like to have hair covering some of my face. lol

                    Hey ladies!  My hair is natural and does NOT get along with humidity.  I have never had tracks but I am seriously thinking about having them put in before I leave.  This may be a dumb question but if I plan on getting to DR on Wednesday and swim, lay out etc before Saturday would my hair still look the same?

                      Thanks for sharing! That was one of my biggest concerns as well. My FI said "ABSOLUTELY NO WEAVE" on our wedding, so I was thinking maybe I'd try to get away with just a little and I'm sure he won't even notice if I go with an updo. But I have no idea. But I will try to stay calm and not stree like you suggested. Your pics are gorgeous!
