Today we were scheduled to post Mars versus Venus in the morning and The Road to Mrs. in the afternoon as we do here on Thursdays. The posts were written and ready to go. But then I woke up and realized that today is our First Lady‘s last official day at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW. So, nah. We’re switching it up. (FYI: M v V will return next Thursday and The Rd. to Mrs. will post tomorrow.) Mrs. Obama is a significant reason Black Bridal Bliss even exists. Let me explain. [Read more…]
Admit it. You just reread the title of this post at least twice. St. Louis? She can’t be serious. Well I am and here’s why! [Read more…]

Consider it for an unexpected bridal shower gift, too.
From the time I first learned about the rich history of jumping the broom, I knew I wanted to incorporate the beloved tradition into my own wedding. However while planning my 2013 nuptials, I found that the options are quite limited for brooms created with this purpose in mind. (The company that provided my wedding day broom has since gone out of business.)
