- Wedding: September 2011
Hey AA brides! Well the wedding is a while away (about 7 months) and I know I have time for this kind of stuff but I like to be prepared 🙂
The wedding is September 3, 2011 and it will be hot, muggy, maybe rainy, dunno what else…Both the ceremony and reception are inside. We plan on going to Savannah, GA for the honeymoon which is even more muggier, hotter, FRIZZ-NATION!
I currently have relaxed hair. I was trying to find styles that would hold up through the ceremony but last through the honeymoon as well. I plan on walking alot during the honeymoon and maybe hitting up the beach and a pool or two so I don’t want to “freak” when water hits my hair lol
My mom suggested an updo which of course I can see the benefits in that – no maintenance, elegant, traditional – but I’ve never been an “updo” person. I guess it’s the weight of the hair that gets me – I’m a big girl and anything that’s on my hair has to be big for it to look right 🙂 OR the fact that too many ppl have slapped tubs of gel onto my hair since I was a kid.
I thought about braids – micros, tree braids…. The micros are ok when I get them despite the long hours sitting there (I have thick shoulder-length hair) and the endless hours taking them out. Plus I had a bad experience with some lady ripping out a braid on my hairline which is still growing back 🙁 I like the flexibility of changing styles but I’m puzzled to what sort of style I would have for the wedding plus I already wore a similar style to my junior and senior prom (microbraids updo) I have never had the treebraids before so its new to me…
I guess I’m just all over the place. When I close my eyes I see me with long hair, wispy curls, happy and carefree. In reality those “wispy curls” are going to be ratted nests by the time the weather is done with them 🙁
HELP! I don’t know where my hair is going to take me!
