    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.

                  Frugality?!?! We are gonna be best buds... I need some help trimming the fat out of my budget lol
