Remember that awesome giveaway announced a couple weeks back with haircare company, Mizani? Well, we have a winner. Her name is LaKisha Coles and she resides in Roanoke, Virginia. Here’s a very happy LaKisha holding her four (!) Mizani products that she won for being the first person to correctly respond to this question: Tell me the name of the natural hairstylist first interviewed on Triple B about wedding day hair. (Hint: She’s based in Arizona.) The answer of course is Arlette Pender of Hairlocs by Arlette.

Join me in congratulating LaKisha! And stay tuned for even bigger giveaways from Triple B in the coming weeks.

The Road to Mrs. – Nixing the Peanut Gallery

Learning to tune out those around you is necessary for many brides-to-be.

In planning my wedding I have come to realize something I wasn’t expecting when I first started: Everyone you know has an opinion, a request or feels a way about something when it comes to your day. Now this is not always a negative. But one thing is for sure; it adds pressure to an already stressful situation. The trap a lot of brides fall into, me included, is wanting to please everyone. Guess what? It’s not possible.

The Road to Mrs. – A Moment of Clarity

Road to Mrs. blogger Jene is determined not to neglect her fiance in the midst of planning their wedding.

First Triple B let me apologize, technical difficulty caused me not to post last week. I missed you guys and I am happy to be back.

As of today there are 144 days until my wedding. Time is really flying. However even with the looming presence of a ticking clock and days on the calendar flying by, I choose to remind myself the “wedding” isn’t the highlight of September 15, 2012 in my life.  As a soon to be bride, blogging on a bridal site I know this statement seems strange. I can explain. [Read more...]

Fashion Friday: David’s Bridal Press Preview

Me at the David's Bridal Press Preview!

On Wednesday I attended the David’s Bridal Fall 2012 Press Preview in New York City. It was a certified treat! As I’ve commented before, I continue to be impressed by the enormous offerings DB carries at affordable price points in so many store locations. And whether you’re a size 2 or size 26, they have you covered. Even those trendier brides who choose to purchase their wedding gown from a boutique with more exclusivity can count on DB for a last minute accessory for a member of their bridal party. Here’s a snapshot of what you can expect from DB next season:

Triple B Needs YOUR Feedback!

Hola! Yesterday I received a tweet from a former colleague that made my day. It read: “Thank you for keeping the site going! These images are necessary. I love the pics in today’s Tie the Knot Tuesday wedding. ” See why that made my day? And now it is your turn!

Many of you have also tweeted me, emailed me, left a comment on the Triple B Facebook page or shared verbally in passing that Black Bridal Bliss has given you something special. So now I need a favor from you. Please email me at the ways that this site has inspired, motivated or encouraged you. No expression is too small or too long. Be sure to include your first name and city of residence. Know that I’m not collecting these testimonies for kicks and giggles but rather for a much bigger Triple B related project. Many thanks in advance for helping to take Triple B to the next level.
