I actually wanted to wear my hair in an afro for my wedding. But I didn't want it to simply stand up an be all over the place. So I made a little hump in the front. Also all of my friends recognize me for wearing flowers EVERYDAY, so as tradition dictates, I decided to go with a flower instead of a veil, but the flower that I chose has petals that are made from veil pieces! I love my blow out fro and I rock it with pride...even at a wedding!
