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

Recommended Posts

Another natural bride here! I was super worried about my hair, because I have long dreadlocs, but luckily, my wedding planner has a stylist who can do my hair. :thewave: There are some great natural wedding styles on Pinterest, but another great option is Offbeat bride. They have two posts covering natural hairstyles for black brides. Munaluchi bride is also fantastic for inspiration. There's also a fantastic FB group called Black Women with Real Hair that posts many different natural styles daily, as well as hair care tips. Thank you so much to the OP for starting this thread! While I certainly am a big supporter of brides however they wear their hair, it's nice to see other AA celebrating their natural curls.

Do you guys have most of your things in place , found? Or purchased for your big day?
Not at all. I have several list. I have list for things I need to do, things I need to purchase, and so forth. For the most part I think I've paid or put deposits on the major stuff except our reception venue. Still working that out.

Me 2. Our colors are black, white, and I'm not sure what color to call the blue but it's darker than teal. I'll try and find a pic of the color.

Thanks brownsugarbride I will definitely check out the sites you mentioned. Honestly, my biggest worry is finding someone to do my hair beautifully and how I want it more than how I want to wear my hair.

Heck no! I have some things in place. I got the STD done and I intend on getting them in the mail this week. So that will be one big project out of the way. On to invitations :)... I am also trying to confirm my ceremony and reception venues with the resort, hopefully we will get that out of the way this week too. I'm looking forward to working on welcome and OOT bags, but that's pretty far into the future.

It is nice having other natural brides to talk hair with. I usually talk hair with some natural girls on other forums... But wedding natural hair talk is much different. :) I still often find myself wanting to wear straight styles... I'm just not sure how I want to wear my hair for the wedding.

    • 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.
