The “All White Everything” creation from Eco Flower is just $29.99!

At last week’s Ultimate Date Night Soiree in Charlotte (We had a blast by the way, pics to come soon!), one of the planning brides in attendance expressed that she was regrettably still searching for affordable floral options for her big day. While I had several of tips of frugal floral finds to share with her, it reminded me of an awesome floral resource I’d yet to gush about here: Eco Flower Weddings! [Read more…]

Tie the Knot Tuesday Celebrity Special – Miranda Brooke + AJ Green

Mr. & Mrs. AJ Green taking in all the bliss!

Mr. & Mrs. AJ Green taking in all their bliss!

Confession: Before this morning I had no idea who singer Miranda Brooke or Cincinnati Bengals NFL player AJ Green were. But the twosome tied the knot on March 21st in a lavish Atlanta wedding complete with several dress changes, plenty of bridesmaids and groomsmen, a six layer cake, specially choreographed dances at the reception and enough crystals for an Elton John world tour. Yet, judging from the pics and videos flooding the net of this affair online, the nuptials of Miranda and AJ weren’t pretentious and gaudy — just a hearty celebration of two people in love who decided to spend the rest of their lives together and wanted to make the most of the monumental occasion their way.

The 24 year-old songstress and 26 year-old jock met on Facebook in 2010. The pair said “I Do” at ATL’s famed 200 Peachtree venue. Their first dance was to John Legend’s So High and the bride’s father even broke out a fresh pair of Jordans to cut a rug with his daughter during the winter wonderland-themed affair.

Take a look at the fun pics and video to judge for yourself. In the meantime, Triple B is sending a heartfelt congratulations to the newlyweds for a healthy and happy marriage! [Read more…]

Marriage Matters Monday – Letter to My Daughter’s New Stepmom

Jada Pinkett Smith (far right) with husband Will's first wife Sheree and their collective three children have (over time) made their blended family thrive.

Jada Pinkett Smith (far right) with husband Will’s first wife Sheree and their collective three children have built — over time — a thriving blended family.

Bridal blogs tend to dish out warm and fuzzy wedding and newlywed advice as though everyone saying “I Do” has never been married and/or doesn’t already have children (whether together or from a previous relationship). Admittedly, even Triple B was guilty of this. Yet when many of us get engaged, we’re already mothers and/or are preparing to wed someone who is a parent. As expected this can get messy — whether the children involved are toddlers, teens or any age in between. We typically witness the messiest of these situations glorified in media — you know, the evil stepmother and the bitter “baby mama” but the below excerpt of a letter written by a mother and ex-wife to her daughter’s new stepmom proves it doesn’t have to be.
