The Road to Mrs. – A Letter from Nadine

The freshly engaged Nadine in Cuba last August.

I should’ve written this post hours ago but Sean and I have been going back and forth discussing our wedding colors. OMG! Who knew colors could be so intense? Instead of trying to find colors we both agree on, I’m trying to gather my thoughts. Which brings me to the reason for this post.

Although I began writing for The Road To Mrs. column last December, my wedding isn’t happening until this September. With less than six months to go, the closer I get to my big day, the more I realize that blogging weekly is no longer realistic. I need to focus on my planning.

So after careful consideration, I’ve decided to scale back my Road To Mrs. posts. My posts will be on a monthly basis after today until August. Please know how much I appreciate Bridgette and the BBB readers! Thank you for making me feel so welcome. I plan to wrap things up on a high note: you can expect expert tips, hilarious videos and maybe even a few tears. Trust me, these posts are not to be missed!



Editor’s Note:

Please join me in thanking Nadine for being so gracious in this explanation of her new blogging schedule. Truth is, I’ve never planned a wedding so I sincerely thought that Nadine posting here weekly until September was realistic. This should be a happy time in her life so the last thing I want Triple B to do is stress her out. Hey, I’m grown enough to admit when I’m wrong. With more than a couple gigs at the moment (not including Triple B), I struggle with work-life balance myself. However what I will never apologize for is my commitment to giving Black brides (of all sizes, shades and incomes) a place to be celebrated, welcomed, informed and sometimes humored. This is so much bigger than lace and tulle.

Nadine and I are still finalizing exactly when her blogs will post going forward (I’ll try to keep it on a Thursday). In the meantime, catch up on all her past Road to Mrs. musings here and leave her a comment with your own advice on staying focused while wedding planning.

The best is yet to come!

  1. I am so proud of my fiance. I know that Nadine struggled with this decision for quite some time but in the end after several weeks of deliberation she decided to scale back a bit. Planning is and can be a very difficult thing and the real issue in my opinion is the unexpected…like when you fiance decides to change the wedding colors while you are away thousands of miles on the other side of the Ocean and then skypes you all cheery talkin’ bout’ “Guess what baby, I changed the colors of my bridesmade dresses!!!! YAY!!!” and then teams up with my sister to take her side and then a brotha’ got to find out that the table linens have to change and so does the invitation colors and even my socks. Home girl chose a color thats pretty close to pink triple B fam…we workin’ it out…and I still think she’s hot..BUT DAMMMNN!! short things change and when things change, there can be a domino effect. So long as I get my speed boat….IM GOOD!!! (thats how Im making my entrance!!!! ON A SPEEEEEDBOAT SONNNNNN!!!).

    anyhow…Im proud of my beautiful fiance…and I also believe that children are the future. We should teach them well, and let them lead the us all the beauty we posses………(wait for it)………………inside.
