The reality show we all love to hate is returning for a brand new season. On June 12, the newest crop of Bridezillas comes to WEtv. (On the same day Amsale Girls is scheduled to debut and as a huge fan of the designer, I’m truly excited about the addition of this show on the network’s reality wedding lineup!) The folks over at WEtv sent me an advance copy of the season’s premiere episode so here’s a little (spoiler-free) feedback: [Read more...]
There are a ton of unchecked things on my to-do list but I had to stop and share this video with you guys! Many thanks to the folks over at Chocolate Brides for posting earlier this week.
I don’t know what about this video makes me happier: the groom-to-be professing his love during the intro, the “baby, I got you” energy this couple exudes or the warmth from the loved ones of all ages showing support (and the food certainly doesn’t hurt). I feel like I know these folks! Be sure to leave me a comment and tell me your fave part of the video.
Some say there’s no romance without finance. Since many claim money matters are a significant part of why marriages succeed (or don’t), I checked in with Dr. Taffy Wagner, author of Bride and Groom Money Talk FAQ: Financial Advice for Brides and Grooms. Read on for her expertise on debt-inducing weddings, bad credit and the importance of communication.

Happy Friday, folks! I’m a beaming proud mama today because BlackBridalBliss.com was used as an expert source in an article again. This time around I was asked about the financial burden of being a bridesmaid for yesterday’s Atlanta Post. Here’s the link and please feel free to share it. Have an awesome weekend.
Howdy! I’m frustrated by information I read in some mainstream bridal mags when the content doesn’t seem practical for the modern bride. This occured just last week when I came across an article about the proper amounts to tip wedding vendors. With everyone being forced to do more with less these days, I was insulted by the figures quoted. So I checked in with NYC-based wedding planner Ebony Small of Longevity Wedding Consultants for a real breakdown of who should get what in terms of tips on a wedding day. Here’s what the event-planning veteran had to say: [Read more...]
Happy Monday! It’s raining and dreary here in NYC today so I figured it was the perfect time to post my round-up of stylish shoes for any bride’s strut down the aisle. (I have all of you covered!) These shoes are guaranteed to brighten up your day regardless of what part of the globe you’re in because not only are they fly but they’re also all less than $100…you’re welcome.
Happy Friday! Next week there’s going to be a snazzy wedding expo in my hometown of Queens, NY — perfect for those of you considering a destination affair. I know the last two Tie the Knot Tuesday features in Jamaica and St. Lucia certainly have me dreaming about chillaxin’ on a beach! Revisit Road to Mrs. blogger Nadine’s informative bridal show survival guide before you attend.
Get all the deets here. Feel free to spread the word about this event and as always, don’t forget to mention BlackBridalBliss.com sent ya when you register.
Have a great weekend!
