Black Bridal Bliss – Looking Back to Move Forward

Please enjoy this post from me today — the final post from BlackBridalBliss.com for the year. Nadine will return next Thursday with her Road to Mrs. blog.

The oft-forgotten Black bride was the reason Triple B launched -- and the reason it has grown!

“How can you give advice on marriage or weddings if you’ve never been married?” she asked with a tinge of attitude while she flashed her colossal platinum diamond ring and matching wedding band. She was an on-air reporter for CNN and we were at a networking reception during the National Association of Black Journalists Annual Conference in San Diego last summer. Triple B was just four months young at the time and I was eager to spread the word about my baby. But honestly, her question stung. Okay, it stung a lot. [Read more...]

The Road to Mrs.: Perfect Last Minute Holiday Gifts!

Nadine has the scoop on these cute tanks and other great items for you last-minute shoppers!

Still searching for last minute gifts? Me too! I’m the biggest procrastinator when it comes to holiday shopping. This year it’s even worse — I can’t help but notice all of the lovely gifts for my bridal party, mom and future mother-in-law. Sigh. Christmas is just days away. After perusing the Internet, I found a few inspiring ideas I had to share. There’s something for everyone: the bride-to-be, bridesmaids, future mother-in-law, or future step-child. And don’t worry guys; I’ve even got something for you. How do I know they’re perfect?  Because they’re all on my wish list. One thing that isn’t: household items. I hope my fiancé is reading. Sean, your joke about giving me a pot set for Christmas wasn’t funny.  A pot set?  Seriously? Guys make comments like that and wonder why they’re in the doghouse… Anyway, I digress.

Exclusive Q&A: Wedding Day Makeup with Andrea Fairweather

Veteran makeup artist Andrea Fairweather chats with Triple B about putting your best face forward on your wedding day!

Today’s featured expert is makeup artist Andrea Fairweather of Fairweather Faces. Andrea has been doing her thing for over 20 years and has provided her services to over 300 brides! But what makes this interview special is that I met Andrea as a college student over a decade ago. I was modeling in a hair show (Don’t judge me.) and Andrea was the makeup artist. As a dark skin woman, I was extremely skeptical about her choosing flattering shades for my complexion.

BRIGHT Idea! A Fab Way to Recycle Your Wedding Gown

Don't just let your wedding gown sit in storage!

Yesterday evening I met up with my girls for our annual holiday community service project. Before we got started, my friend who recently had her baby blessed distributed thank you cards in appreciation of all the gifts and support he received. She then revealed an amazing tid bit about the outfit he wore the day of his christening! [Read more...]

The Road to Mrs.: Do We Need a Wedding Planner?

Cool Bridal Find: S2Stylists

Ever wished you could have a personal shopper/dresser for your wedding day? You can!

If I had a dollar for every time a bride told me how overwhelmed she is with planning or when a newlywed expressed how f-a-s-t their wedding day went by, I could book myself a sweet London vacay. (Well, I hope to do that soon anyway.) But my point? Brides seemingly need all the assistance they can get on their big day. Stacey Seabrook identified this need and developed S2Stylists, a NYC-based bridal dressing and styling company. [Read more...]
