Natural Bride- Krystal
Hi Nikki,

I wanted to submit my story so that maybe it can inspire someone that is getting the pressure to straighten her hair for her big day.

I got married in September 2007, in Montego Bay Jamaica. At the time I was 6 months post BC (transitioned for 10 months). As I was going through my wedding plans, I recieved one resounding question “What are you going to do with your hair?” It usually came with raised eyebrows which I knew to mean, “I know she’s not going to keep her hair like that”. I would simply tell them, I don’t know yet. I would also receive comments and tips such as “well why don’t you flat iron it or get braids?” As my day got closer, I contemplated getting braids, but then I thought, hey, I spent a year and a half growing and learning my hair… I want to show it off!!

So my big day came, and I wore my hair in a twist-out adorned with a flower, which was the perfect style for my beach wedding (I even went barefoot!!), and I received an enormous amount of compliments. The photographer, which was provided by the resort we married at, told me, ” You are beautiful, and I love that you let your hair flow for your day.” She had the best jamaican accent too… lol. Needless to say, my husband and I truly enjoyed ourselves.

Thank you,
Krystal

    If I ever get married, I will do the same thing! My hair doesn't like to be straight, and I'm not going to fight against it on my big day. You look beautiful!

    Your hair's so beautiful! I'm glad to hear that more natural ladies are not succumbing to the flat iron (or other methods)for their wedding days. I'm inspired to do the same when/if I do get married.
