    We are less then 5 months away from our wedding in Montego Bay...and I need to choose a hairstyle A.S.A.P!!! We are having a custom wedding cake topper made that will look like us and I need to submit a picture t the designer of the cake topper.

     

    I have been natural (no relaxer or straightening chemicals) for over 2 years now and my hair stretches past my bra strap. My fiance loves my natural hair and does NOT want me to straighten it for the wedding. (and neither do I ;))

     

    I have been surfing google for some African American Natural hair Wedding Hairstlyes for about a month now. I want something UNIQUE and FUNKY and I want to show off my natural-ness.

     

    Here of some pics of some styles I like...Please feel free to post some pics you may come accross as inspitation and let me know what you think.

        Thanks R...I'm noticing I can always count on you to get me thru a wedding delimma! I seen your post and told Brett "OMG I love her!"...lol I let him see all the pics to just to get a feel for what he would like and he like jill's too... It is my favorite but I didn't want to tell him that so I acted like it was to RISK-AY for me...lol Hey he has to be surprised right! I will let you know which on I will send to the cake topper designer for sure. I will be sending it off in about 2 weeks.

         

        Also check out our wedding planning website thru shutterfly when you get a chance. It has alot of pics and details of what we have done so far. Just a few things to start.

         

        Hope all is going well with your plans and you are not freaking out like me...

          i'm COMPLETELY freaking out!  i designed most of my DIY projects this weekend..saved the boarding pass file a million times....but guess what?!?  i can't find the damn thing!?!  so, i'm close to tears right now, just THINKING ABOUT IT..but...i'm trying to stay calm...fortunately, i took plenty of pics of what i did so if i have to recreate it all, i'll be fine..but DAMN..DAMN..DAMN!?!

           

          i'll DEFINITELY check out your thread on shutterfly....i too am looking for a new do..i'm pretty close to taking the plunge and chopping my hair off (again)..you see, i started growing it out in october with the thought that i wanted some hair for the big day..then the fiance tells me...uhm, i miss your short hair..i've been rocking a 'halle berry meets toni braxton' do for years...(crazy that the fiance said he missed the short hair cuz when we first met, he was all, i've never dated a woman with short hair..now he misses it..lol!...that's cuz he ain't never dated me BEFORE...lol!?!)  

           

          anyway, i think i'm going to go with something sorta megan goode meets jill scott's new do...here's where i was...where i am now..and the inspiration for the chop in the future..thoughts???

            I think that jill/meghan/vanessa style will look good on you! your now pic looks totally different from your before pic....I had to go back and make sure it was the same person...lol ...It's crazy how you lost the boarding pass file. I know those things take time to make I would be peed off too. Since you are getting married before me PA-LEESE give a full report when you get back...:)

             

            What types of favors are you giving to your guests?

              its so funny because soooo many people have said that i look like a different person..i think my makeup was alot different with the little bit of hair..my fiance says 'i don't have a long hair lifestyle'...i think he just misses the short and sexiness of the 'sassy' do..so i think i need to get to chopping it again and QUICKLY!  i kinda like the thought of adding some hair to mine to create a beautiful weave but the fiance hates ANYTHING fake so, that's a no go... (ps..just called a possible hair dresser..the big chop may be done this weekend!!!)  stay tuned...

               

              uhm, i'm not doing 'favors' per se, rather i'm doing OOT bags with lots of goodies to include the following...

               

              a Jamaica Tourist Guide book (got it for FREE from the Jamaica Tourist board - its nice and glossy and looks GREAT)

              Hotel Info on the Iberostar Rose Hall Beach Resort (printed from their website along with a resort map)

              pre-boarding passes/Wedding Weekend Itinerary  (see the thread of details)

              wedding survival kit (first aid kit, scrabble word-find book, deck of cards, shout wipes, hand sanitizer, etc.) - hope to finish putting those together soon...will post pics upon completion.

               

              all of that stuff will be packaged and sent pre-boarding...so folks can pack ALL of the goods with them and we can avoid having to lug all of that stuff with us to jamaica..i always OVERPACK so the fiance is worried i'll end up owing the airlines BIG $$$ taking ALL of that stuff with us..i'm hoping to save some $$$ by mailing it out...

                I love the Jill Scott doo!  Although she has hair added in so keep that in mind.

                  yeah, i'm soooo feelin' the jill scott..if my hair was natural (i JUST permed it)...i would soooo go that route..pieces and all!
