I wanted to share my bridal hair experience with you and all of your devoted readers in hopes that this may help some brides to be. First let me say, I was natural for nearly five years when I got married in March 2010, but still found it somewhat difficult to find that “perfect” style. I love my natural hair but it proved to be immensely challenging to find a hair style that would both compliment my wedding gown and display the natural glory of my hair. Mainly due to the fact that I found only limited material available to draw inspiration from.
My other challenge was with the people in my life that would ask, ever so politely “what are you going to do with your hair, dear?” As if my natural hair needed some sort of polishing or couldn’t possibly hold up to the formal occasion. However those those who were closest to me, pretty much knew that whatever style I chose, my hair would be worn in all it’s natural glory! The difficulty was with pairing a natural style with my wedding gown and other accessories. I was very thankful to have a stylist that I trusted help me design a style that would work great for me on my very special day. And with out a second thought, she traveled with me from Texas to Florida for my destination wedding! I am sharing my story with you and your readers in hopes that other brides to be out there will know without a doubt that it is possible to wear their hair natural on their wedding day and be the beautiful bride that they have always dreamed they would be.
Thanks for all the hard work you put into your blog and for creating a forum for natural girls to meet and share information and ideas regarding the topic of natural and curly hair. Keep up the good work and God bless you and your family.
What a beautiful bride!

Here's some pretty wedding hairstyles for those that are getting married with natural hair, that I saw online while viewing youtube Khamit Kinks Natural Bride 2010.
Gorgeous. Thx for sharing your photos.
Dayum Apryl you look "Gorgeous" in all of those pictures. My favorite of the bunch is picture #2, and your skin is smooth and clear. Makes me want to drink up on my water intake for clearer skin :). Your hair looks so pretty in the style that you choose all the way down to the flowers, and makeup. Congratulations to you and the hubby on getting married, and thanks for showing off your wonderful wedding photos.
Beautiful, beautiful wedding day hair (and the dress and you too!!). Your hair could not have been more perfect — it's glowing just like you and your hubby. Congratulations!!!!

You look beautiful! And that dress wow, simply gorgeous!
She looks lovely! When I got married I opted for micro-braids, mostly because I wanted honey-moon ready no fuss hair. I also wasn't as skilled in styling and managing my natural hair then as much as I am now.
