Black Bridal Bliss – The Point of It All

Triple B's Tie the Knot Tuesday alums Stephanie & Delano!

Just when I get frustrated by life’s inevitable tests, I receive an email like the one excerpted below. The unsolicited heartfelt message below was emailed to me from a regular Triple B reader/visitor in Maryland. It almost brought me to tears. I’ve always felt this site was about more than weddings. So much more…And clearly this woman agrees.

A little insight: From Miss, Mrs. to Ms., I’ve adored weddings/marriages. I truly enjoy watching related tv marathons on TLC, Style, Bravo….You name it. I am a divorcee, who didn’t have children when married at 25, separated at 26 and divorced by 27. I just knew that I’d “get back on track” after a little “self-discovery.” Well, I’m still (aren’t we all?)! So, why does a non-committal (working on this) 37 year-old single lady like myself [read] Black Bridal Bliss? The same reason why a purpose-driven single lady started the site in the first place…Because you still believe in the beauty of it all…no matter what. See, eventually, God grants us our destiny although paths are never straight. Look at you now! It’s the faith, which leads to the passion (putting the right people in place) which pushes that momentum forward. Your blog is more than a bridal resource. It’s a lifestyle digital handbook for what “stepping out on faith” can do and what beautiful treasures await. So if you want to know who truly inspires me overall, it’s you! I can’t thank you enough for giving me the reminder I needed to keep believing that my timing (spirituality, health, relationships, career etc…) will eventually line up with God’s timing.

Continued blessings and keep up the great work!

Feedback like the above from YOU confirms why I launched Triple B in the first place. Whether engaged, single, married, divorced, widowed — it is a place for Black women (although the racial backgrounds of those who frequent the site is growing) to feel validated and celebrated. The best is yet to come; there is so much more in store!

  1. In a world where we are told that our rears are too big or too small, our busts are overwhelming or insufficient, our skin is too light or too dark, our hair is too short, too curly or too natural and our names are too ‘Ethnic’, I am so glad that there is a space where we are celebrated in all of our shades, sizes, choices of partner and myriad backgrounds. BBB has been a place where I have reveled in the beauty of other women and been able to see my own reflected, as well. I was a single who wasn’t really even seeking when I started reading this blog and, as the emailer stated, God brought me into a new space via a crooked path. Keep up the great work, BBB staff!
    ps- I miss you, Cousin Mars…

    So wonderfully expressed! How beautiful it is to witness women expressing gratitude and appreciation to each other. Jealousy, spite and backstabbing have become common amongst us. I’m overjoyed to read this message. Progress!!!

  3. Guess Who’s Baaaacccckkkkk! Yup, its me…Cousin Mars. Thank you for the mention, Ronda. I took a back seat last month so my cousin (Bridgette) could shine. I hope you were fortunate enough to catch her on TLCs Something Borrowed, Something New. If not, you still have a chance…it will & has been re-airing. Well, I’m back in the groove this Friday. Please stop by and provide some feedback.

  4. I am so elated and thankful that you are my daughter and the woman you have become. It bought tears to my eyes when I read the email from the reader. Know that you haven’t seen nothing yet, the best is yet to come
    . Keep the faith Baby Girl…………..

  5. That ep of SBSN has a permanent spot in my DVR. I’ll be on the lookout for you this Friday… I need more eloquently expressed masculine POV in my online world.

    Thank you so much all! Maintaining Triple B is a labor of love (no pun intended) and there’s so much more I want to do with this site. At times it seems as though I’m not making enough progress so receiving emails that those from the woman above are nothing short of gifts from God.
    @Ronda – Yes, Cousin Mars is biz-ack this Friday! WOO HOO

    You know I love YOU and BBB! As I wear the hats of wife (35 years last week), mother, sister, aunt, and friend I find this site just plain enjoyable – even for an old lady. I love what you love and look forward to every edition! I’m glad the young lady sent you the message above and I’m glad you shared it with your followers.
