I hear you completely. I went out on a HUGE limb for my wedding day a few months back and wore it natural as opposed to my safe straightening. It was a big deal to my mom because I had just started going CG and wearing my natural curl pattern so she was nervous for both of us! I had planned for weeks and I almost bailed on the day before. I was looking at styles that required straight hair!
But with a little encouragement from my mom and husband, I went with it and was happy. It was a lucky day that I got consistent curls and waves all over! I still have random wonky days like today. It's all tied up in a bun now due to weirdness.
