Every bride looks lovely on her day.  From her hair to the pointy tip of her shoes. I have photographed many brides as they got primed for their D-day and watched as a hair stylist straightened their Brazillian weaves into curls, waves and updo’s . 

So recently,  I told my boyfriend now my fiancé of my intention to wear my natural hair during the wedding and guess what ?  He said ‘Eh?’ And laughed.  But it wasn’t a laughter of scorn to belittle me. I don’t blame him as I had been referring to my hair as kpenkpeshie after some days of not combing it. And all he could see was a few inches of growth. But he loves my hair to bits! 

I then said, ‘herh! I am going to blog about your reaction! Do you think there aren’t beautiful hairstyles for natural hair for weddings? Let me educate you!’

A software engineer often engaged in creating codes, obviously he hadn’t seen any before. So I had to show him.

Natural hair brides are amazingly simple and gorgeous in their updo’s and twist-outs. I don’t know how long it takes to style them but I know it is much cheaper than fixing Brazilian weaves.

Here are some gorgeous natural hair brides on Instagram I have curated to inspire you if you are going to be a natural hair bride soon.

This is an updo you can have by adding natural hair extensions to yours. The fuller the better. 

Can you say short and sassy? Thats what this bride is in her ‘downcut’ / daavi hairstyle which she rocks in a beautiful birdcage veil. I wonder how many guests would do the same after seeing this.  GO WILD!

Well you can’t have just the bride looking all sparkling by herself! Check out these little flower girl princesses  in their updo’s .

I did convince him in the end. Thankfully he was also against me wearing a weave. Hope you can share this with your beau’s who might be doubtful how sensational you will be looking in your natural hair on your wedding day!
