For my past and planning African American brides who plan to wear or wore their own hair.

Recommended Posts

Who did you use to style your hair? I really want to wear my own hair (as opposed to weave) but I'm skeptical of the resort stylist. Has anyone had any good experiences with a stylist in the DR? If so, who? Where are they located? And if possible can you post pics. For my planning brides, have you figured out who you will use to style your hair? HELP PLEASE!!!!! feedback.gif

I'm trying to figure this out as well. I'm relaxed with a pixie cut. The only reason I'm considering extensions is because I would like to do an underwater TTD doing a mermaid like pose. I've been trying to find pics of an AA bride doing an underwater TTD shoot for ideas...however I've been unsuccessful. I'm a MX bride but as of this post I plan to have the extensions added by my stylist then having the resort do a simple but elegant pin curl style.

I'm natural too... have you picked any styles? I've had my hair done while being on the resort, I was at Dreams Punta Cana. I didn't have any issues. I also had a braided style so, that's alot different than say, an up do. I haven't even thought about how or what I want to do to my hair. How good are you at styling your own hair? what about your bridesmaids?

I get Dominican blowouts from time to time so I asked my stylist who does them and she said I shouldn't have any problems getting my hair styled the way I want even by resort stylist. I'm just a little apprehensive leaving something so major up to chance. Iâ€m not having any bridesmaids and the female guest attending the wedding could probably fix but not do my hair (for the wedding). Yes, I know how I want my hair. I'll try and post a pic shortly.

I think you should be ok. Dominicans have hair really close to AA hair. So I think you should be ok. I know that you don't want to leave it up to chance, but I think you'll be fine. After all... you could get a real authentic Dominican blowout :)

Love this thread!! I have shoulder length relaxed hair, but when I travel, I put it cornrows. However, I didn't want to wear cornrows for my wedding. Anxious to see what other brides will do.

I don't know if you girls frequent any natural hair forums... but I know that Curly Nikki has a few bridal, natural hair posts. I still don't know how I want to wear my hair. As soon as I am over 150 posts I will post some pictures of some styles.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
